Just out of curiosity, has anyone seen ViktorZolotov yet? Is he back from the dead too. I thought Putin's face looked swollen and his left cheek had a lump on it. heard he had a back problem, but his back seemed okay. I'd like to hear from a body language expert. I thought he looked strangely uncomfortable and unfocused in his facial expressions.

Please look up the "Hoax" category here on ATS to see other rumors that met their fate in the Hoax Bin.

Breaking News this rumor is not.
Jesus, give it up already. You seem to be taking the categorization of where this thread is very personally. I'm guessing one of those threads that were moved were yours and you're still butt hurt over it?

Putin was missing from the public eye. That is not a hoax. That is a fact. We all speculated on what would cause a world leader to go missing for 10 days. Who knows, some of those speculations may turn out to be true some day.



The title says "Putin Neutralized by a Stealthy Coup". Proven to be false and the man is before us. What part don't you understand?

These were mostly real events, happening in the world, being shared by concerned people. The fact that some of it was wrong, some of it exaggerated, some of it breathless, and some of it contrived does not make it less of a story. And in fact, on the whole, is no different from the mainstream media's wrong, exaggerated, breathless, and contrived reporting on 9/11/2001.

No.

This is/was a real story.

Twitter, and to some extent Facebook, Instagram, and SnapChat were "lit up" with this topic. Twitter alone was seeing over 10,000 unique tweets (not retweets) an hour at one point.

The "Twitter Storm" was real, and often fueled by real reports of a coup, which has been anticipated for some time, which was discussed here on ATS, and mentioned by Stratfor just days ago.


So that I'm understanding you correctly, you think a coup took place, or you're qualifying "real" to include reports and stories, which aren't a hoax if found to be false, and real, just not the truth. This makes sense to you?


This thread wasn't using Twitter as the source of breaking political news; breaking political news was happening on twitter, and being commented on in real time. There's an important distinction.


Is this not double speak?


For those with aversion to social media, this is going to be difficult, if not impossible to embrace: it is now one of the primary information sharing methods for average people. The evolution toward that has been happening for about three years, and continues now.


I'm okay with that, but this doesn't change the fact that this was a hoax.

It certainly doesn't make it less of a story, but it doesn't make the story non-fiction, either. Now, there were many stories being told on 9-11. Surely you can see that many of them were hoax, right?

Putin was missing for almost 10 days, that is a fact.


Just putting one thing out there, he was missing to us in the west. A select few probably knew what was going on, he may have wanted it that way. He doesn't have to explain to anyone but the Russian people where he was and they didn't seem as worried as some here in the west. We may never find out what went on in those 11 days.

No, it says "Rumor: Putin Neutralized by a Stealthy Coup"
Which does not qualify as a hoax, true or false.

Please, threads have been put in the HOAX bin because they were asking a question, not even stating things as fact. Just because the implication was considered a HOAX.

I guess the word "rumor" put in there is a "get out of jail for free" card.

I suggest that from now on, in order to prevent your thread from getting hoax binned, add the word "rumor" to the title.

Attach "Rumor" to the title and "Breaking News" can be anything despite being revealed to be false? You know in your heart you've moved other threads to the Grey Area or Hoax bin for less.

If this "Rumor", now proven to be false, is left to float it begins to look like favoritism for your own thread.


Doesn't look like favoritism to me.

There's 75 pages of people expressing differing opinions, doesn't matter to me who started the thread. If you had started it I'd think the same way.

And nothing was proven false.

Abandoning thread now. Congratulations, thread-derailers. Pat yourself on the back. You have successfully crapped up the thread with your petty HOAX argument so much that I can no longer take it. Have fun in your little hugbox, have a toast at my departure.

SO, Great, great thread. I had a lot of fun speculating with everyone else. Thanks for updating the thread whenever possible.

Im just going throw this out there.....

Missing?? I think not.
Absent from the public eye? Yes.

Now those are two completely different things.

I honestly think that this thread was a farce and you all saw how weak your own logical thought processes are.

Kudos to SO for whipping the lower echelon into a frenzy. Though I doubt this thread would have survived had it been authored by any other member.

There's a difference between a hoax and a rumor. A rumor is information that has not yet been fully vetted or proven to be false. A hoax is patently false information being peddled as actual fact, with an intention to deceive.

Many people are upset that their threads get moved to the hoax forum because they truly want to believe whatever it is that they posted. If it's proven to be outright false, it's a hoax.

Putin was missing
Maybe dead, maybe sick, maybe with gf, maybe in coup.

It turns out he was hiding. Wrestles tigers and is also very good at hide & seek
