These are not the sorts of statements designed to encourage
confidence in your judgment, my friend. They tell us more about
you (and maybe about UFOIN as well), I'm afraid, than about the
UFO phenomenon or the ETH.

One hopes that this sort of empty posturing -- especially coming
from someone smart enough to know better -- disappears from
ufological discourse soon.  It is, as we have already seen
demonstrated repeatedly, much less than helpful, and among other
things, it betrays a fairly shocking ignorance of the literature
of astrobiology.
