Another aspect of the self-cover up - ridicule factor - is the
personal decision to either avoid the UFO topic or join in its
ridicule because, if you told the story, and told it straight,
you fear that:

1) you would likely be made out to be the fool after some
authority figure states that the object was something mundane
that didn't behave the way the witnesses saw and described it,
or

2) your boss and/or colleagues would start shunning you,
ridiculing you or even cause you to lose your reputation or your
job.

The ridicule itself largely comes naturally, starting in 1947,
but of course can also come from government/military sources as
furthered and sanctioned by the Robertson panel of 1952. The
ridicule need not show much variation in style.
