There is also MUFON's early stances towards abductions and the seemingly and so-called "crazy" accounts of reptilians, talking animals, and overall high strangeness.
Given all this, MUFON cannot be considered an official-bona-fide-serious entity. Never could be, in my mind, for all kinds of reasons. The main reason being the very fact of itself. No entity or individual within the fringe can ever be taken seriously. Except, maybe, for Jacques Vallee.
Meanwhile, there are individuals with MUFON who are good and true people. I a not talking about them, but MUFON as an institution, which can no longer be (as if it ever was) taken seriously, or as an authority and overseer of the UFO Gatekeepers.
