Fame is fleeting, but in Ufology it just doesn’t exist

In the September 13 2021 New Yorker there’s an (interesting) article on punk rock by Kelefa Sanneh [Page 28 ff.].
In it, on Page 33, she tells about drummer Travis Barker of Blink-182, the band of Tom DeLonge, who aspired to notoriety and notice within and among the UFO community.
Since that fame passed DeLonge by, rather swiftly, he’s moved on dejected by, it would seem, the fame of Barker who Sanneh writes, “is now one of the [music] industry’s most sought-after collaborators … who has also emerged as a social media celebrity” mixing with the hoi-polloi of Hollywood and Music.
Perhaps this is what DeLonge hoped for with his UFO stint, but it didn’t happen.
Luis Elizondo, who’s writing a much-anticipated book, revealing more UFO secrets, has gained much traction within UFO circles, including appearances galore on those TV channels that delve into UFOs heavily.
Luis has UFO fame, but does he have universal fame, that is fame outside the isolated and fringe communities that deal with UFOs and related anomalies? No, he doesn’t.
Few I know and among those who provide news or academic information know or give a fig about that good-minded man, Luis Elizondo.
But that’s how Ufology and the field of UFO interest is, as I often note: an oasis of mildew and inconsequential gab, which has turned to quips and sound bytes, all over the place, and particularly at social media sites like Facebook, Reddit, et al.

Fame will never be found within UFO circles and surely not outside it. The topic is without cachet or import, even among UFO long-timers it seems.
Note the dearth of dialogue here ad online at other UFO venues: nada. There’s no substance with which to interact; responses and information, even about UFO sightings with intriguing circumstances is vacuous or just non-existent.
One can understand Ton DeLonge’s departure from the fold, just as we’ll see Luis Elizondo disappear after he makes a few, well-deserved bucks from his forthcoming book.
