My definition of contactees is the standard, ordinarily
understood one: those who claim prolonged interactions with
benevolent, long-winded Space Brothers in remarkably low-
strangeness narratives. (The average contact claim reads like
science fiction written by somebody who's neither imaginative
nor intelligent.) It's also the definition Greg Boone was using.

I was not referring to CE3s, which have their own character and
history. I am unsure whether abductions are a variety of CE3,
but except in rare cases abductions appear to resemble CE3s more
than they do contact claims. My suspicion is that most abduction
reports are neither, but that's another story.
