Strictly speaking I didn't say that, but was showing my expectation of how the numbers of (hypothetical) photographed real aliens would compare to the endless fakes we see passing by on the internet. Fakes win hands down.
Actually I don't belong to the "I Want To Believe" crowd, since my version of alien hypothesis is too terrible for that: I've often compared alien visitors to European colonists and us humans to the natives of the New World centuries back. But logically real photos of aliens are a possibility. UFO-reports refer to both flying saucers and (rarely) crew to be visible (=reflecting light). They then could be photographed, as some disks have. Potentially, a member of the gov organizations in possession of such images could decide a photo had to be released/leaked for the greater good, because the public has a right to know.
To exclude this possibility out of hand you need to be absolutely sure no alien life form ever was on Earth and/or they cannot reflect light. If however this possibility remains open (surely it does?) you and me must consider the subsequent possibility of a few real photos taken and coming to light
