              alt.alien.visitors Frequently Asked Questions 
              This FAQ was last updated: 15th November 1994 
                           
                             
The FAQ and shortened version, the MINI-FAQ were originally written  
for the Usenet Newsgroup alt.alien.visitors.  More recently the FAQ  
and some of the a.a.v. messages have been cross posted to other  
networks. The FAQ will try to reflect this more universal  
distribution, but for now it is essentially the FAQ produced for  
alt.alien.vistors.  The full FAQ is a very large multi-part  
file which is posted infrequently, but is available by WWW and ftp  
(see below).  The MINI-FAQ is designed to be a single file which can  
be posted more regularly but only contains basic information.   
 
The FAQ is the result of contributions from many people.  The views  
expressed are varied and unless otherwise stated should not be taken  
to represent the opinions of any one contributor, the editor or the  
contributors as a whole. Neither, unless otherwise stated, should the  
views expressed be taken as in anyway representing any organisation or  
employer with whom the contributors are connected.  As the FAQ is the  
work of many people, speaking many different flavours of english, some  
of the spelling and grammer might be novel to some readers, remember  
the main function of the FAQ is communication not a lesson in english.   
The current editor is Steve Gamble (see FAQ updates for how to contact  
him.) All comments by him are indicated by the square brackets[]. 
 
Charles McGrew has made the full FAQ together with other UFO related  
material available by ftp.  Here are the details: 
 
ftp.rutgers.edu (128.6.26.25) 
 
        many ufo-related documents (some of dubious reputability) in 
        pub/ufo.  See README's in the directory (and subdirectories). 
        Files are a little disorganized right now, since the document- 
        collection process is still going on, but if you're looking 
        for that "special file", this is a good place to check out. 
        More recent versions of the FAQ can be found here as 
        a.a.v-faq.  All files except the README's are in unix- 
        compressed format, so please be sure to use 'binary' transfer  
        mode. Anonymous ftp enabled.
