Roswell Executioners Beware:
Recently a group called the Roswell Executioners has been going around to various Roswell sites in hopes of destroying them. It has already succeded in destroying one site so we have to make sure that this doesn't happen to any more Roswell sites. There are letterally hundreads of sites out there dedicated to Roswell. So if any of you own a site, be sure to have back up files so you can reboot if these so called "executioners" decide to raid your site. I have already informed AOL and hometown of what has happened and they are already in steps of stopping the culprits.

Here is a statement from them -
This is a club for all Roswell fans who want to keep their site safe from people who can't think of their own ideas. I came up with this idea after I made my first Roswell site because I found people were taking anything from writing to graphics and claiming them as there own. There will be a list compiled of people who steal things from other peoples sites, this will give those people a bad name and make people think twice about visiting their site. This is not a force to be reckoned with there are our friends and other Roswellians in this club so if you steal you will get caught. It may seem mean but people like us who put countless hours of time into making their sites it's no fun having some idiot coming along and stealing stuff from it with out permission.

The existence of a 'Sadistic Production Team' (whose members are comprised of Grand Executive Sadist Jason Katims, Chief Financial Sadist Kevin Kelly Brown, Ron Moore Powerful Newbie Sadist and, including but not limited to the writers and producers of Roswell and the professional sadists TPTB of The WB), is supported by the amazing number of posts disclosing extreme melancholia, sadness, tears and physical aches, e.g., migraines, bleary/puffy eyes, internal preoccupation/distraction, insomnia; due to viewing End of the World! The disclosure of unBEHRablycutes' constant mantra throughout the aftermath of End of the Word, "Damn you, Katims!" further documents and supports the 'SPT' concept, because of , as she states, 'that strange dichotomy of being so incredibly impressed with Shiri, Jason and JK's talents and caring toward this love story, to the polar opposite of hating JK for the messages he put out there, e.g. the 4 aliens must stay together for their powers to be the strongest (when WILL they ditch the bitch cuz the ho must go).'

It's a little lobby that some of us have formed to keep our favorite bad guys around for more than one episode -- both because we like them and because they should be useful information resources.
