I'll just quote FissionFire from 2008:

While I don't think anyone who has followed most or all of this project would think anything of that sort occured, it's very possible that others viewing this list later may have that opinion. In many ways, by making everything completely open to the public, this helps make the list a primary-source document which skeptics and independently verify through their own investigation. Who knows, maybe in 10-15 years we'll have people looking back on this list and using it as a reference source much the same we've used the THN list ourselves.
