I read The Register a lot, and the past few days they were discussing the whole SETI thing going on, earlier today they posted a piece of (surprisingly legible) hatemail from someone involved in The Disclosure Project.
I understand a lot of Astronomers are skeptical of the whole "Aliens! UFOs! Conspiracies!" thing, but their site lists 400 or so officials who stood forward at the 2001 press conference thing.
I haven't engaged any critical thinking yet, I can't help but want to believe that they may be right.
What do the astronomers here think?
