I normally ignore this X-Conference stuff, but you have really hit the nail on the head with this one. As I have wrote before about the hostility of aliens, it is obvious that many of the UFO/alien reports show evil intent. If aliens don't look at it as evil because of their culture, fine. But we can still examine it from our culture and label it appropriately. Clearly, any "assumptions" of nice, friendly, good aliens is based on wishful thinking rather than examining the database of cases.
