The latest bit of in-fighting at MUFON
(contiuing the long history of such disputes within UFO group, large and
small...), has seen the release of MUFON's contract with Robert Bigelow's company - referred to in the contract as the "Buyer".
The text of that company, and a covering email from one group of participants in MUFON's in-fighting, can be seen on the UFO UpDates archive at:
The covering email states:
ut here we
have the MUFON Board of Directors nakedly SELLING the entire

NO respect for MUFON's Mission of reporting UFO information to
Members and the public. The entirety of CMS was put at his
disposal, and our idealistic MUFON investigators were turned
into employees. In order to live up to the demanding terms of
the contract, a draconic regime of secrecy and conformity was
imposed on Mufon-and it is still with us today.
