The Vulcan script is very striking, but I don't see much
resemblance to the symbols Budd collected. I do see the
resemblance -mentioned in the link - to musical notation.

Note all our disagreements here. Rick thinks the Vulcan script
resembles Budd's symbols, and I don't. I see some parallels
between Leir's samples and Budd's symbols, but Carol Rainey and
Richard Hall don't.

This demonstrates how individual impressions, however strong,
aren't very convincing - and why we badly need a scientific
study, with a disinterested panel of judges.
