What do you think about ʻOumuamua? Do you think it's a comet, or do you think it's part of an alien spacecraft, like what Avi Loeb is saying?

A lot of news is saying that it could be a spaceship, because of the paper published by Avi Loeb, saying it could have been a light sail that was accelerated by solar radiation pressure. It's mainly because it accelerated non-gravitationally, but it showed no signs of outgassing like a comet would have.
