I'm sorry you are disappointed, but I think what I said was
pretty accurate regarding the abduction scenario. Perhaps you
mis-read my position.

I do believe that the abduction scenario is a part of Ufology
and that it needs to be researched and studied. My only
deviation from this are the points that I don't believe the
abduction scenario is the core element of Ufology. It is being
made to appear so and I disagree with that assessment. Further,
that the abduction researchers haven't shown a baseline of thier
research and investigations, which have gotten way out of hand
in many ways. I cannot speak for Jan, but these are the reasons
that I am frustrated by the abduction scenario as it is
currently being presented.

From a practical standpoint I believe that too much is expected,
both from the research standpoint and the position of the
abductees, in what can be accomplished to bring the matter to
resolution at this point in time. Just the fact that discussions
revolve around alien hybridization, Raelian vs whatever
conflicts and the like, suggest to me that the abduction
scenario research has jumped track and running amuck. It has
lost focus and therefore is causing the frustration that Jan, I
and others are experiencing. That doesn't mean that I have lost
interest in the abduction scenario or turned my back on
abduction research. As a metaphor, It just means that I think a
few trains in the rail yard have derailed, causing chaos. That
chaos needs to be rechanneled and research put back on track.
