The construction of this site is
the culmination of much effort by countless researchers and numerous
interested individuals. Obviously, the efforts of The
Storytellers and Researchers such as Robert Todd, William Moore, Stanton
Friedman, Kevin Randle, Donald Schmitt, Timothy Good, and many others cannot
be underestimated. Without them, the Roswell Incident would have
been just a forgotten blip. Much credit must also go to the
research and reports done by various government
agencies. But most of all we would like to thank the many
contributors to this site. Without them, we could not have
collected and presented this information.
The idea for Roswell Files was
spawned by the countless threads The Roswell Incident once caused in Usenet
Newsgroups such as alt.alien.visitors, alt.alien.research
and sci.skeptic. (Unfortunately, these Usenet groups no
longer serve to debate the UFO question, having been taken over by
individuals that have no interest in the subject. The visitor can
still pore over the debates by researching the archives at
groups.google.com.) It was obvious over the years that some
Usenet denizens (both Believers and Skeptics) had done their homework, and
the spirited debates seemed to go on forever. It seemed a shame that
their work would not be published in a more permanent venue.
It was equally obvious that there were many who attempted to argue
their points based not any personal research, but on emotions and their
need to believe in UFOs and the Great Conspiracy. They would argue
vociferously, yet were woefully ignorant of the vast amount of evidence
gathered (either Pro or Con) regarding the single most researched and
written-about UFO incident ever.
It is to all these people that we give all the credit for the creation of
the site. Visitors are encouraged to visit Usenet archives, such as
Google, to acquaint themselves with the discussions that were the
inspiration for this site.
Of course, it is in the nature of some that
they have to have someone to blame (or praise!) for the content.
All flames, critiques, corrections, vitriolic abuse, gentle chiding...
as well as congratulations, loud applause, kudos, and kind words...

Thank you for visiting, and we hope you
enjoyed the presentation.
