On a final note:
Con artists have peddled (and some still are peddling) disinformation, misinformation as well as downright false rumors through the Internet as well as through appearances on wacky radio talk shows such as Art Bell, etc. and it is amazing how some gullible segment of the population (including some so-called "UFO researchers") are taken in by these hucksters.
It is no wonder that the mainstream seems to categorize "UFO research" as part of "pseudo science".
I am ashamed to admit that I myself wasted more than 45 years of my life in this wacky world of "ufoology" and have nothing to show for it after all these years of fruitless pursuit of this subject matter.
I am glad to get out of this field, although I did learn a lot about human psychology during these past 45 years.
I highly recommend to everyone the following excellent (and humorous) website that exposes some of the con artists of ufoology:

My perspective on things changed in that I do no longer dogmatically espouse conspiracy theories, but rather enjoy studying WHY people believe in conspiracy theories and the effect of such "conspiratorial" belief systems on society at large.
