Ok I registered only to post some stuff I noticed.
First things first. I am objectively investigating all of this. And many other topics. I am neither believer nor non believer on any theories posted everywhere. I came to 4chan 1 hour after supposed image ban was lifted. Came to 4chan searching for a mystery to research and got involved into one.
Now you guys have most details already reposted here.
Interesting thing is, no threads are allowed. This makes no sense, even if it is to prevent spam. First off flat earth threads are being posted daily, with rather stupid arguments and very ugly vocabulary. They are never deleted for spam or flooding.
I went down the hole, and what has happened has taken my skeptic view on this to "hmm this is suspicious"
First off, an hour or so ago, there were 4 or 5 threads posted about this. In one someone posted a pic saying "ok guys, here it is"... Someone commented "Ok wow, that's the closest to the real one if not the one"... Third user tried opening the pic in those few seconds that those 2 comments were alive. Strange thing is, he couldn't. Basically only those 2 users saw the pic. Even more interesting is, thread got deleted instantly. He managed to get a screenshot of image missing and the comment right after the thread was deleted as he hadn't refreshed it. On another thread he came and posted the screenshot. I was in that other thread. The moment the screenshot went down, I tried opening it, but couldn't. "File doesn't exist"... However I had thumbnails zoomed and I screenshot it then tried to update (This all took me 15 seconds) and thread was deleted.
All threads were suddenly deleted again. One more popped and I posted this story and a link to discord chat where we can discuss without fearing deletion and bans. However my comment was seen and replied to by 1 person. Then died. Again this took maybe 10 seconds. Funny thing is, people commented on thread for another 30 seconds or so before it was deleted. So they chose to delete only my comment that had this story and link to discord room where we discuss this seriously (No calling people shills, no spam, literally discussing every and any option, taking all possibilities into account).
I also got banned for spam and flooding. That was the second IP/device that got banned. Funny thing is, both times I was banned posting results of my research so far and relevant data. First time I posted a post by a guy claiming it was fake and that he made everything, debunking it and saying how his timeline doesn't fit, as I was there literally from before it exploded.
Second time was for posting the story about the screenshot and posting a link. Again for spam even tho that was the only alien related comment I posted on 4chan.
So basically I got banned 2 separate times for 2 comments, both time for spam. Makes no sense whatsoever. I circumvented the ban again but not posting anything yet.
