Yes, it would, if they were trying to sound like experts in
ufology when in fact they knew little about it and got their
facts wrong; then Don would be perfectly in his right to tell
them so. It works both ways...

I don't have any evidence that they are directly connected,
although on occasion there have been rare reports of UFOs/craft
seen near, or making, formations. The 'balls of light' though
have been seen and filmed fairly often now in the UK. They could
also be referred to as UFOs.

I had been posting about the Canadian reports here for years
now, and Errol has interviewed myself and others before on the
subject for SDI. Other people here have expressed an interest in
the subject as well. That's why. And for the reason I just noted
in the previous paragraph, these other as-yet unexplained
sightings are something that may or may not have a bearing on
ufology in general, but are important enough to be studied I

Yes, there is a lot of 'pollution' out there, but just like with
UFOs, that doesn't mean there isn't a genuine phenomenon worthy
of study.
