Hi Jerry,

I've felt that the AA 'film' has been a waste of time since we
stopped getting any valid information on it; which was
underscored last year by the release of the Ant and Dec film in
England. But does the List really want to shut down
communication on the subject if 'new' information has an impact
on the genre.

Perhaps some aspects of the affair will help us to more quickly
recognize similar hoaxes in the future, but it then depends on
how much effort researchers are going to put into fighting the
hoaxes and bad information that seem to be prevelent in this

Most researchers I know concentrate on their own efforts and
assume that the good information will rise above the bad. I've
found that with the Internet, that isn't always the case.

I believe that Errol has - again - indicated that "new"
information pertaining to the AA 'film' is acceptable for
discussion, but not the same old arguments that we've seen for
years. I believe that such 'new' information should be vetted
through researchers, and this List would serve that purpose.

From the scientific perspective, the AA 'film', like the
Contactee movement, have had little to do with ufology. But,
from a sociological/psychological perspective, they have had a
major impact on the genre and how it evolved.

It would be a shame to adopt a knee-jerk reaction to this
subject that is similar to the reactions shown by CISCOP in
rejecting UFO reports.
