IMHO Your right on the money mate!
I also 'believe' that majority of the UFO sightings are hoaxes or misidentifications while a very small nucleus are real. I feel the same way about
abduction reports too.
It's very probable that we have groups of people, not necessarily connected in any way, trying to outdo each other with rigs and CGI hoaxes.
Sometimes we see a particular UFO in one part of the world only to have it show up a few days later in another continent. Some people see this as
definitive proof without considering that it may just be a simple case of human oneupmanship or bandwagon jumping "me too" people.
As an example, when I was a lad, there used to be a guy at school who used to copy everyones stories and add a few embellishments of his own -
probably to fit into the 'group'. So - we all got together and started to make things up to see what he would say and no matter how ridiculous the
stories were, this guy always had the same thing happen to him!
I think there are people in our society that never quite grow out of this type of behavior and this may account for some of the similar UFO sightings
and abduction stories we hear of as well as the deliberate hoaxers.
One thing is for certain - some are real and others definitely are not! The real art form IMHO, is discerning one from the other.
