there are intelligent posters but the majority are, well.. bored attention seekers i believe.
I tend to agree that there are many 'bored attention seekers', but after years lurking and taking mental notes, i realised there are many more very intelligent, and very organised and prepared debunkers.
Which is evidence in and of itself that there is a great deal to conceal about this subject...for one reason or another.
If the subject is total bunk...would there be such an organised and deliberate effort to ridicule it?

I can't find the gumption,
To jump to assumptions,
And claim to know details,
Of things not proved real,
And announce them for public consumption.

You seem to have missed my point. Perhaps I was not concise enough.
This has little to do with math and plenty to do with the concept of knowing. What can you possibly know, and what it is to know something? How can you even know that you exist, let alone claim that something as obscene as the term, "alien" exists, and has an agenda? Personal experience should not be mistaken for something as absolute as knowing. You are believing, and that's fine, but please refrain from mistaking belief for knowledge or understanding.
The Eye deceives the I, and the I deceives the Eye. Do you understand how seeing, hearing, smelling, and feeling operate? You do realize that anything you perceive through your senses is your personal perception, right? Perception is not universal. You cannot contemplate what reality is to a fly, let alone to another human being, so everything you think you "know" is actually personalized to you.
So, how can you know whether what you have experienced has any ground to it? Well, for starters, you can try to test it. If you can't test something, then you can't even scratch the surface of knowing it.
Sadly, one death attributable to this ancient argument is too much. There is a great deal of needless death and destruction on our planet. Pick up any new paper to see the spiritual fallout of this conflict.
The war doesnt involve much fighting and killing, although im not discarding that as a possibility. The war is a spiritual one.
Yes, if they were to, in open public it would have a undue influence upon us. Spiritually speaking, it would ruin the reason we are here in the first place. But in saying that, if this war continues, both, all, sides will loose!
The aliens are very careful about choosing who they interact with. They dont come down and interact with all of us simply because it would debase them and they would lose power. This goes for the good ones and the bad ones. When you hear about "a war", this is what it is referring to. Humans are mixed up. Weve got good guys and bad guys. For either one to come down and begin public interaction and communication, we have to approach totality of.good or bad. Both parties want to hang out with us, but neither can. You have to have a spiritual understanding to understand why.
