CUFON Principles, Policy and Purpose
(and other notes)
The guiding principle which has made CUFON the fine resource which it
continues to be is that we post ONLY verified and verifiable material, sometimes with a
small comment. Our purpose is to provide solid material from which you can draw your own
conclusions. Additionally, any conclusions drawn by readers are their own responsibility,
as are ours, which are clearly marked as such when presented. We stand behind what we
post, and very much want to keep it that way.
We strongly feel that inclusion of other subject matter, such as
"new age" type material, dilutes and damages the validity of the clear evidence
of the reality of the UFO phenomenon, often presented in the government's own words.
Therefore, information lacking a recognizable relationship to the subject of UFO will not
be posted on CUFON.
Although the verified documents and other solid information CUFON makes
freely available may, in many cases, come in the form of government documents obtained
under the Freedom of Information Act, it is not our intention to discredit in any way any
branch of the United States armed forces, their officers or personnel.
CUFON operates independently, it is not associated in any way with any
other web site, computer bulletin board system, network, information service, or UFO or
civilian interest group, and none should be inferred. CUFON may utilize information made
available to it at no cost by UFO Reporting and Information Service of Seattle,
Washington, USA, and others.
While CUFON was founded by Dale Goudie of Seattle Washington, who
continues to be a leading presence, a large debt of gratitude is due to Jim Klotz for
production of materials and the maintenance of the CUFON BBS, and to Chris Lambright for
his contribution of research, writing, and graphic arts excellence in the realization of
this CUFON web site
The file areas on this CUFON web site contain most files which were
available on the CUFON BBS prior to July 1991, new items have been added and will continue
to be added as they become available and are verified. Look for notices of new items and
posting dates to judge the age of information presented.
In accordance with the guiding principles of CUFON, we will be providing
interesting and fascinating insights into both recent and past cases that we feel
represent the best examples of what has made the UFO phenomenon such a long-lasting topic
We welcome any comments and suggestions you may have about this home
page as well as the material presented here.
WE ARE ALWAYS LOOKING for new items, leads, and reports. We encourage
anyone who has something to contribute to please bring it to our attention. We ask that
information submitted pertain in some way to the UFO phenomenon and that it be fact-based.
Interesting new items, facts pertaining to known cases and indications of
military/intelligence agency involvement are of particular value.
We are also interested in ufo-related sites that represent the best in
available information. In particular, we want to include those that strive to give you,
the reader, unbiased, verified information which is presented well. We will not provide
links to every popular site that exists, it's been our experience that most simply rehash
the same material with no apparent concern for whether it has any degree of quality to it.
If you have a page that you would like to see listed here please let us know.
