What would be wrong with letting the public see the raw data
before the official analysis was done? How would that have any
effect on the analysis whatsoever?

So... the URC could check and find out.

OK - for those matches between logged abduction events and power
outages, I would imagine being only a small number of data
points, it wouldn't take long to check the tampering flags.

>Quick and dirty does not add up to science.

I still don't see why at the very least, those few power
outage/logged abduction experience instances couldnt be
released. And personally, I still can't fathom why this data
must be kept secret until the official analysis is done. These
aren't military secrets, and this isn't a big stakes court case
either. No "national security" issue here.

Releasing the data now in no way prevents a "done right"
analysis from being carried out. Is it that scientists don't
like having their conclusions questionned and debated?

I suggest that is not a valid reason to keep data of possibly
Earth-shaking importance secret.
