Well, you might insist this, MGrant, but my impression is that the majority of folk here do not think: UFOs are not ET spacecraft, therefore ETs do not exist.
You are not dealing with morons here - (I'll allow that I could be the exception ;) )

To me this is as bad as arguing that ETs do not exist.
I firmly believe that there are other intelligent technological civilisations in the Universe, but I seriously doubt that any of them have visited Earth at anytime in its long history.
It never ceases to amaze me that some folk think 'V' was a documentary and not a fictional TV series. ;)
So few answers - and not one of them mine.
