=== UFO Organizations
------------------

Throughout the world there are many civilian organisations which either have
the study of UFOs or extraterrestrials as their main object of interest or
include them as part of a wider remit.  Each organisation has a different
view of the subject ranging from the basically scientific to, in some cases,
the frankly nutty.

This list is not exhaustive, but is fairly extensive.  The names of the
officers and subscription rates of organisations may change and, unless
the editor is informed, the updated information may not be available here.
This is, of course, not the only list of organisations produced in the 
world.  Readers are urged to consult other lists as well such as the excellant 
list of UFO organisations produced by John A. Hayes for UFOnet.

CRAM: The Cyberspatial Reality Advancement Movement

In an effort to bring valuable information to the masses, and as a
service to motivated information compilers, a member of CRAM can help
others unfamiliar with Usenet `publish' their documents for
widespread dissemination via the FAQ structure, and act as a
`sponsor' knowledgable in the submissions process. This document is
being distributed under this arrangement.

We have found these compilations tend to appear on various mailing
lists and are valuable enough to deserve wider distribution. If you
know of an existing compilation of Internet information that is not
currently a FAQ, please contact us and we may `sponsor' it. The
benefits to the author include:

- use of the existing FAQ infrastructure for distribution:
  - automated mail server service
  - FTP archival
  - automated posting

- a far wider audience that can improve the quality, accuracy, and 
  coverage of the document enormously through email feedback

- potential professional inquiries for the use of your document in 
  other settings, such as newsletters, books, etc.

- with us as your sponsor, we will also take care of the 
  technicalities in the proper format of the posted version and 
  updating procedures, leaving you free of the `overhead' to focus on 
  the basic updates alone

The choice of who we `sponsor' is entirely arbitrary. You always have
the option of handling the submission process yourself.  See the FAQ
submission guidelines FAQ in news.answers.
