I see this post is some what dated but very interesting replies and responses.
The following is my opinion only. I have dealt with these bastards since a very young child.
Grays - I know of two different species. The short bastards and the tall bastards. I have learned to effectively deal with the short SOBs.
As you may detect from my tone I'm no fan of aliens. Having said that I do not wish them harm. That's odd you say that. I respect all living things. Even rattlesnakes have the right to live, same with aliens. I want them to go away. Pipe dream I know!
My opinion only ~ they may have been from where ever it is, any name or place you like, but they live here on Earth. They are Earthlings, just like you and me, only different.
I know their base of operations quite well, and I can say this massive (did I say massive, I meant MASSIVE) base of operations was not build overnight, but over long periods of time. I believe these bastards have been here for as long as humanoids have been here.
Their base of operations is underground, access is through a deep body of water (Pacific Ocean perhaps). I know the alien craft pretty well, both sizes of the saucers they use.
Like some have indicated these short bastards (I don't like the term 'grays', 'greys', or 'greyes') are like a computer controlled cloned drone or a creature created in the lab and programmed for their specific tasks, i.e., abducting. I refer to these SOBs as the A-Team. They excel at abductions, and they should as many as they do.
They excel at mind control, planting thoughts from a distance (distance is undetermined). However one can with practice learn to overcome being controlled by these short bastards, but it takes practice but it is possible. If I can do it anyone can.
The down side of course is one cannot stay awake indefinitely and once you fall asleep guess what? You go for the midnight ride. But being abducted is not always such a bad thing. I can think of many worse scenarios that being abducted by aliens. Abductions give me the opportunity to learn something about them.
Some abductions are horrible; surgeries, implants or implant upgrades, tissue and or bone marrow removal, ouch on those. I know from experience.
I have awoken in bed on several occasions screaming and scaring the hell out of my wife after being returned from a surgery. The worst was an implant upgrade, damn hope I never get another one of those.
The tall grays generally stay at the base of operations and these are the aliens you want to fear. Have fun with the small aliens, the short bastards but fear the tall ones as they don't play games and it's their way, always their way. There is no highway, it's their way, period.
I have written extensively in over 30 articles about these two species of aliens, their base of operations, their craft, the methods of abductions, MILABs and so on.
Most of my articles are in the older website of UFO Digest, and two articles in JAR.
My experiences closely echo what I read in this forum. The question is how much longer is this going to happen? I have documented alien abductions starting with my family back to before 1920.
I firmly believe much of what Dr. David Jacobs writes about at http://www.ufoabduction.com/
I take issue with only one thing he writes about and that is his thoughts on alien and human telepathy. I know he is wrong as I regularly telepathically communicate with these bastards. It's something I wish I had never learned to do, but live is full of mistakes, and I have made my share of them. I also wrote a lengthy article about my telepathic ability with these aliens. Actually a quick search found the article; http://www.ufodigest.com/article/higher ... -telepathy
