Scrolling halfway down, NEMO posts a second new ‘pole AND lamppost' photo without mentioning who took the photo, which is strange because THIS was included in the EXIF data on this second photo:
"Image input equipment model: DiMAGE X"
In June 2003, a scientist with the pseudonym Jean Pollion released, in French, his book Ummo, de vrais extraterrestres, or, Ummo, real extraterrestrials in which he analyses the "Ummite" thoughts and language. He shows that the Ummo language is different from any other language we know in that it is a "functional" language. One of the astonishing properties of this language, according to the author, is that it works without a dictionary. One must only know 18 symbols, that Pollion has named "soncepts", which if combined make up a functional description of the thing or situation that the creator of the "word" is trying to convey. Currently, more than 1300 pages of those letters have been registered, but it is possible that many other letters exist. In a 1988 letter, reference is made to the existence of 3850 pages, copies of which having been sent to several individuals, represent perhaps up to 160,000 pages of total Ummo documents.
The true identity of the authors of those reports remains unknown. Dash notes that "few ufologists outside Spain took the Ummoism seriously—the photographic evidence was highly suspect, and, while the Ummite letters were more sophisticated than most contactee communication, there was nothing in them that could not have originated on Earth." Still, Dash allows that, whatever their origins, "considerable effort had gone into the supposed hoax."

50 years no disclosure, and with crap like this, never will happen, in the next 50. It seems people with technology got stronger in smarts, but weaker in wisdom.

In my personal discussions with people still convinced that there exist extraterrestrial being from planet Ummo visiting this Earth, I had to regret that there was, too often, an exagerated and utterly useless emotional charge on their part, translating in expressions of anger, off-topic diversions, use of circular logic, undue comparisons with other UFO cases, unfounded generalizations and pontifications, and accusations of ignorance.

I just spent half an hour trying to find out why this thing was a fake.
"Its very name ought to have given it away," says the hoax's creator, Jose Luis Jordan Pena, referring to the fact that UMMO shared the same sounds when pronounced as the Spanish word for "smoke."

Ah, Urantia. I ran across a group of Urantianites back in the late 70s or early 80s. That was an experience! Nice folks, some of them pretty talented in various ways, but they seemed to share a tendency to believe anything about Space Brothers or pretty much anything paranormal so long as it came from an uncheckable source. They didn't have a problem with the inevitable contradictions that arose between their various sources, either. In fact they seemed to feel they had some sort of highly evolved tolerance for things like one channeled entity stressing that reincarnation was the way of the universe whether one chose to believe it or not, and the Urantia Book telling them that reincarnation absolutely never happened. I did not hang around for long.

I can't understand why he was never pulled into line in this thread. Every second post was was of his ramblings. All I wanted to do was find out how they did it and who it was. (Still don't know)
The only concise poster in this whole sorry thread (11 11) was bounced!
I think he/she needs to find another thread to go on with the incessant post-pollution. One day, if I sit down in front of my computer with 12 hours to spare and a large bag of narcotics I will read Sys Config's posts. Maybe then I will find out he/she really was as insightful and witty as he/she thinks.
But right now Sys Config is just a pain in my eyeballs.
Thanks for nothing.
