The Aliens had severe funding cutbacks in their scientific programs. Any projects that were worth studying are still ongoing. Those where there was no hope of correcting the flaws of the societies of the planets were abandoned. If Earth were to pay the aliens 2000 lbs of gold, 1000 lbs of Silver, 55 metric tons of potatoes, and 200 packages of Reece's peanut butter cups, they will resume their research programs. If we throw in a hundred pounds of Folgers coffee they throw in another old spacecraft for us to play with.

They have not stopped, probably never will until the masses understand that these things are happening.
People have not stopped talking about their abductions/encounters either, they just don't talk about them face to face. They now use the computer so they can remain anonymous.
Have you read the grey area threads? No shortage of abduction accounts there. Are their stories real? I don't know, but they are defiantly there.
Are abductions real? I cannot say for sure, but I believe that there is defiantly a phenomenon going on that consist of people coming into contact with beings that seem to be of an alien origin.
The real question is who are doing the abductions? Aliens? I use to believe this, that is, until I started reading abduction accounts. I no longer entertain the ET idea. I know believe these beings are closer to demons or beings from a different dimension.
Ever heard of a drug called '___'? Look it up, it raises many questions and, at least in my mind, answers a few.
Edit: I must also state that I do indeed believe in other life forms that live on other planets, and they may very well be thousands/millions of years more advanced than us, but I do not believe they are responsible for the UFOs and abductions.edit on 8-3-2012 by davidwaters84 because: (no reason given)

A big example is how much credibility do you think would get lost for a user/account. After admitting alien abduction. Ever seen independance day? Remember the father who had been talking for years about being abducted. Yeah he was the crazy one in everyones mind yet they were being eradicated. It wasn't until he sacrificed his life that he got any respect. This resembles our society even to this day.
"I been abducted"-"Get off the drugs"-"You have mental problems"
Think about it.
