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.
