Without in any way defending the misdeeds you so wittily recount
(and they are, of course, indefensible), I quarrel only with
your last sentence. These sound not like sins unique to
ufologists but to human failings that show up in all walks of
life and conflict. We have a tendency in our field to judge
ourselves uniquely iniquitous, when in fact we're just all too
much like human beings. And in any event, I doubt that all but a
tiny handful of those who disdain ufologists have ever heard of
the back-stabbing episodes. That doesn't excuse them, obviously.
