If the "The Board is made up of people who put their own money into this organization," I am left with the impression that they bought their way in and I hope that isn't the case for a volunteer non-profit that was investigator based. The recent airing of dirty laundry in the field should serve as a warning that there is need to reign in the membership (or "investigators" or whatever) to a more well-defined probe and actually begin to treat this as a scientific investigation. I think there's good work being done, but it's lost in the noise of the Internet; and MUFON seems to be worried about its image and increasing attendance at the annual Symposium. I also find it unfortunate that the MUFON leadership has allowed the transfer of un-redacted UFO Reports to the Bigalow group. This following their failure to properly deal with the transfer of abduction case files by John Carpenter in the 90s. Is the privacy of patients and witnesses becoming too much to deal with? I will be the first to admit that I don't have enough personal knowledge to comment on whether the actions taken in dealing with four State Directors was valid, but I would say that from my perspective the Organization seems to be doing very little to bring a true scientific enquiry to the field.
