“1. Witholding of vital information on sightings or findings

Commenting on those years no so long in the past are difficult since so much has happened since those days, but I do remember that editing that little zine was always a joy.
It was indeed hard work in those days before computer processing, putting paper into an old typewriter and "banging away" for hours at a time with nothing but a dictionary and white out to assist you.
While we didn't have the vast body of "stuff" that is now on the Internet to chose our stories and features from, we did have much UFO information being published in newspapers of the day, and to my opinion at least, much more reliable than the anything goes stuff that folks post today.
Also looking back, there was a bit more cooperation between UFO " researchers" than is found today. Seems like everyone today is out to promote themselves one way or another and make a few bucks out of their "findings" and observations.
Anyway, that's a few comments by this old ufological dinosaur...

Now what is needed is a nice program like Calibre but that would allow you to search multiple PDF's to find any and all instances of the search terms. Maybe I'll have to contact calibre and see if they or maybe the people at PDFXchange would be willing to work on it.
