Good and evil depends on perspective in this matter. Aliens may
think it good to completely control humans, harvest their organs
or genes, whatever. They may think humans evil since they
destroy their world and perform alien autopsies and such.

So the question is are the aliens good to humans from
a human perspective or evil. (I guess then you must define
what humans think is good and evil too since many
dictators think they are doing their citizens good by
controlling them).

Using UFO databases and UFO folklore, we should have enough data
(its hard to separate each!).

We can assume that the body of data we currently have is enough
to form an initial assessment with probabilities associated for
each conclusion.

It would be too late if we waited until we got much better
quality data (cities being blown up by aliens).

Better to be on the side of conservativeness rather than
blissful and welcoming.

Abductions and all their problems don't even have to be
considered. Just look at all the cases of close calls with
aircraft, UFOs terrorizing people by following them, stopping
cars, irradiating people, being misinterpreted as non-alien
military attacks (yes, aliens SHOULD be smart enough to realize
that COULD happen), blatantly violating human laws of

Really, we need more data, if any, of good things they do for

Theoretically, we can discuss the issue. Its just that, like with
abortion, there are two sides and they don't budge.
