It seems to me that NASA/JPL _always_ ignores unusual features
unless they have a pre-packaged explanation for them that they
can put in their press releases, as they did in this case (I
think they've given a quite reasonable explanation for these
deep caves near volcanoes, although in other cases rather
dubious explanations seem to be satisfactory for public

There have probably been a few hundred unusual features in
images taken by MGS and other recent Mars probes that they've
never commented on. They seem to live in constant fear that by
admitting they don't have a ready explanation for something,
they'll stir up the "UFO nut". It probably would stir them (us)
up a bit, but why NASA should worry so much about it as they
apparently do is another one of those unexplained mysteries.
