As long as ufology is "entertainment", it will suffer as a
scientific inquiry. We are also blessed with those who enjoy
crossing the line to gain fame or profit, while the
undiscriminating public soaks it all in.  All this, with the
precedent setting networking of individuals and groups via the
Internet, has made any rational scientific probe problematic at
best and unlikely to gain the public's attention amid the noise.
