Ok so we are getting a vast reduction in the amount of abduction cases, something that has been confirmed by several contactee groups, and ufologists. Apparently this has been reducing since the late nineties. Are they going to end? I personally have no idea, but there have been several posts on ATS by people who claim that all abductions will end this year!
The question is why? There are several speculations that come to mind.
Could it be that their genetic research is complete, and they are done with us? Or are they getting ready for the next step in their plan? Invasion? Introduction of hybrid clones?

My "abduction"/sleep paralysis experiences stopped about 11 years ago. I was 25.
If, for scientific research - biological, societal, psychological, environmental etc etc...the ET would have more than enough information by now, and further abductions would no longer be required.
By this stage in their research periodic "check ups" would suffice, moreso, as an advanced race I think they would be able to create a forecast/prediction for the human species based on their data and thus would simply continue to study from a distance as we follow along our predetermined/logical course.
Abductions reports ending in 2006? Nah...even if Joe EBE lands on the front lawn of every government capital in the world at the same time - the reports will continue - they'll just get weirder.
I do try to think logicaly on occasion, and I'm led to believe that if ET wanted to run roughshod over human kind it could be done and could have been done. It hasn't as yet and so I'm thinking their purpose is one of science and research.
by rich23 - I would hesitate to apply words like "malicious" to these entities. I would be extremely cautious ascribing normal human behaviour to them. Do you think it might be more useful to ash whether their plan - if such there be - would be beneficial or detrimental to the human race?
Now you get into a whole MESS of questions and theories - the camps are split - some of the population believes, others do not.
Some think aliens are our galactic Knights-in-Shining-Alloy - come from the stars to rescue us from ourselves...others campaign for TinHat Societies and preparing for the innevitable and veritable slaughter/enslavement of the human species.
Others still, believe we are to be incorporated into an Inter-Galactical Federation of Entities.
Still others believe it is all about genetic mutations and manipulations and human kind is the unwitting saviour of the ET species (damn that cloning!)...

Im surprised no one has said this yet, but you left out one option, it never happened and people have given up on trying to make beleivers out of everyone. No offence to anyone who has been, but you cant just put points up that positively light your point of view and leave out all the others.
Im on the fence about abduction. Dont beleive it, dont disbeleive it.

Oh no? What about ghosts? Ghosts have been passed down from generation to generation in almost every race on the face of the earth, yet no proof of them has been found.
Its very similar, someone "sees" a ghost in a house, or grave yard and suddenly every person who goes there sees the same ghost. For generations after that that same ghost is seen. Why is it so hard to beleive that a random number of people had a dream, or had an hallucination and told someone who found the idea thrilling, or the idea acted upon their imagination and then they themselves had the experience?
EDIT: Everyone sees except for the people that dont beleive that is, very much like ET Abduction. If there is anyone here who was a true, hardcore skeptic of this and then got abducted id really like to hear it. Seriously, it would be interesting to hear them tell it.
