maybe they just think of us like ducks.
if there's an island in the middle of the pacific with a load of ducks on it, and no humans, we'd think nothing of sailing up and attaching little rings to their feet. because they're just dumb ducks. we know they've got their own quack quack language, but we wouldn't dream of trying to communicate. we just sail in, do our business, and sail away.
that's what we are to the aliens -- dumb ducks.
