I, too, have pointed out this problem. I'm glad John and I
agree.

Abduction skeptics still ought (in my opinion) to mention the
claim, while being as pointed as they like when they demand the
documentation all of us deserve.

As I mentioned in a reply to Rebecca, I'm working on one piece
of documentation. Another -- Budd Hopkins'  35 samples of
apparently similar "writing" allegedly seen on board UFOs -- is
supposedly being studied for a future report in JUFOS.
