Okay, good for you.

I don't know what "rear-guard" means in this context, because I
see no evidence that the problem is Budd Hopkins's methodology.
The issue is what the abduction phenomenon, which exists
robustly in pretty much the same shape apart from Hopkins, is
actually about. That's a legitimate debate which will continue,
as it should.

If I'm around when you're fading into life's twilight, I will
contribute to the hypothetical forum I mentioned. I do promise,
though, not to be icky about it.
