"Gov't Confirms UFOs" - Maybe it irks me more than it should...

DennisG2014 thought this was worth mentioning said

…but I don’t think so.
So, the government confirms that there have, in fact, been flying objects that they could not identify.
People who want to believe: “The government just admitted that we’ve been visited by alien spacecraft!”

unidentified = unidentified
unidentified =/= aliens

I know, I know… but it’s one thing to be pedantic about people using UFO interchangeably with “alien spacecraft”, it’s another thing when people think that the government admitting that there have been FOs that remained U means that they’re saying ETs are IRL.

Drives me absolutely nuts.
Let’s fight about it.
