well, I'm currently sitting in a large institution full of academics. None of them are working on anything that would go KABOOM (except the mars
lander and only then if it fails to launch)
However I do know that if I shoved any of their findings onto the web for the world to see I'd not only loose my job but I'd also loose the

partly because it is irrelevant to the subjects discussed but mostly because when its published we intend to sell it.
Call it protecting ones academic investment if you will.
Now here, on the web, discussing UFO's we're faced with bigger fish. earth shattering documents.
these documents, if real, will not be publicly available because somone wants them to be (one doubts Boing wants details of their next gravity drive
plastered all over the web for their competitors to see) They will be available because they have been leaked and contain information that can only
really be understood by people who have read background information which has not been leaked.
Substantiating this information is therefor an almost impossible task, like the parable of the three blind wise men trying to describe an
just because what they describe sounds nothing like a real elephant, doesn't mean that thats not what they are in contact with and describing.
