This study is obviously about what people do or do not believe
about UFO reports, which seems a perfectly reasonable idea to
me. I can't express any opinion about whether it is likely to be
useful or not, as I have not seen the questionnaire and, unlike
Jerry and Ray, I find it rather difficult to pass judgement on
something without knowing all the relevant details.
