Site Closing:


Hi guys,


Gav and I have decided that it's no longer economic to keep SupernaturalUFO running so there won't be any new articles from today except on Twitter. We've both been funding the site out of our own pockets since we began 5 years ago to give our readers the best reading experience and we're against advertising so bottom line is, we're closing down.


We'd like to personally thank our readers, contributors and anyone else who has been involved with the site, your input has been invaluable in us publishing nearly twenty thousand news articles.


If anybody has any questions, queries or simply wants to keep in touch, I can be contacted at Kurhah@Hotmail.co.uk and Gav at gavin@supernaturalufo.com


If you're interested in potentially taking over the site and its content then please contact gavin@supernaturalufo.com


Thanks guys, you've been awesome!!


Chris & Gav

Via Dave Reneke It is a wonderful thing that words written many years ago can inspire people today.
