Based on my own lifelong experience with many races of alien life and with thousands of other humans who have alien contact, I see that the more ufo field information the alien experiencers embrace, the worse they feel about the alien races and their own contact with them, and the less likely they will trust them or give them a fair chance.
On the other hand, the more the experiencers are aware of and communicate directly with their alien contacts, the better they feel about and the more they trust the alien races. Then once a person starts to learn about alien visitation directly from the alien races, their perspective takes their view far above and outside that of the average groupie/abductee. Progressive contact does not answer everything either, though, and brings an even deeper sense of isolation for being so misunderstood, even by other alien experiencers, who are supposedly their own kind. They don't even fit in with the people who don't fit in.
It is no wonder to me that so many people rather choose the security of the popular content of the various popular books, even knowing it is limited and wrong information, just to stay on the same page with others. Everyone "needs" to belong somewhere.
Few who have the opportunity, choose to work with alien life. All of the social and mental pressures to conform to the norm are just too great. Even beyond those, then to face the fear and confusion that come with stepping out into the unknown all alone- people would just rather not. Or even when they really, really want to, they just can't.
My alien contact continues to evolve through my life. Only my awareness of it slows down sometimes, depending on what I am working on with the aliens at the time, and due to different things going on in my normal daily life.
I would never stop my alien contact for anything, as hard as it has been at times, especially at first while getting to know the different races- and especially hard with all the crap my family has taken from other people because of it. The human side of the difficulties far outweigh the alien side of the difficulties.

hatchedcross you made a good point. But I see it as, we are not wild animals. We are a technologicaly advanced, spritual race, not very far behind the aliens themselves. We don't deserve this treatment, and they might not either.
