I don't think you and I disagree on this.

In my post, I did say the following (disagreeing with Dolan):

"Dolan's article includes the following, in which Dolan implies
that he believes that Hynek's actions in relation to these
photos demonstrate he was part of a cover-up (an allegation I
think is rather undermined by the fact that he shared his photos
with others and included some of them in two of his books... - I
think his actions simply show he was not overwhelmed by his own

>In my opinion you're engaged in some pretty serious time-wasting.

Well, I've wasted more time on sightings by Tombaugh and Menzel...

(Not to mention ufology more generally!)
