I get the whole, "wanting to entertain the idea that this guy is telling the truth" (if only we paid the same attention to those in the world who
are suffering with real problems) ... I REALLY GET IT.... I can understand the facination you all have that this could be a really interesting story
and the guy (menguard) is going to tell a really killer yarn and its WAY WAY more entertaining then ANYTHING on TV so why the hell not listen and
Okay.. do you not understand that threads like this are the counter productive to making ATS a serious and important asset to the community?
C'mon guys... what if someone kinda semi important walked in and wanted to check out some sites to use one to launch something new and alternative
that would have made ATS the new 'place to be' on the internet (perhaps as big as yahoo but for alternatives - which is personally what I want to
see happen.. the owners deserve it.. this place rocks) and they see a conversation like this.
What if all you are doing is feeding some poor delusional youths scitzophrenic fantasies?
"Billy, you know we talked about this.. these aliens do not exist, its just your illness making you believe these things."
"BUT MOM! I'm talking to people on the internet and THEY BELIEVE ME!"
ATS gets in to trouble. Or just looks foolish.
Or maybe I do for making a deal out of this.. its early.. maybe I'm over reacting.
But I don't think so.. I think this is wrong to post 10 pages of nothing but someones pitch for a new scifi series.. WHICH IS ALSO what you could be
feeding here... you could be doing the Sci-Fi channels test marketing for them right now. How would you feel about that?
Besides.. these Ancients?
Do they look like this...
(bottom left hand corner)
.. do they? Because then you have just been watching too much Sci-Fi there Mem.
AND TO MEM... sorry to talk about you like you are not here...
(I don't mean to be mean or rude here)
.. but if you REALLY believe you are having contacts with extraterrestrials who are talking to you in your head and telling you to do things.. then
you need to talk to your doctor about it okay?
But the thing is.. I don't believe that you believe that you are being contacted by beings in your head. I think you are taking this board for a ride
because you saw P.Y. do it to the whole world and THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN HOAXES ARE ALLOWED TO RUN AMUCK... and perhaps you are even warming up a
bigger hoax on ATS and using ATS as a spring board for it...
.. either way... I don't like it. Its insulting to the intellegence on this message board to pass off either your illness or your fiction as
'something that is truely happening to you'.
Do you other guys realise what the OTHER problem with feeding everyone who comes by with a lame sci-fi story to tell that they have perhaps put
together from 100 other sci-fi stories and perhaps their paranoid fantasies?
#1) You're going to attract every nut on the internet eventually, which though might be entertaining to have them all in one place at the same time..
(actually.. my god would that ever be interesting.. how the hell would we actually plan something like that and MAKE it happen.. something to discuss
later) POINT IS.. it isn't ATS. ATS is not a mental instiution and personally I don't want the paranormal or alien and ufo message board filled up
with stories like these, THOUGH I AM NOT STAFF and I can't speak for them as I have no idea .. perhaps this is what they were going for all along
#2) ATS will lose credibility... AND FINALLY.. when someone DOES SHOW UP with A REALLY REALLY TRUE STORY that is perhaps .. the biggest story of all
time.. and has proof and ... well you know what I mean .. A BIG STORY and they come and post it here.. if this place is filled up with fantastic
stories and nothing to back up these gdmn stories then how we going to give special time and treatment to those who actually have something to back
their stories up?
Don't you guys have ANYTHING better to do? There are WAY WAY better articles and discussions going on in this site you know?
Sorry for the kill joy, stick in the mud, I know this stuff is fun now and then.. but seriously guys.. enough is enough already.
PS: Thanks for the minute of your time... I've said my peace.. do as you will. I can't stop you.. but you should really think twice about what you
are spending your time on in here. You can contribute in so many positve ways, you don't have to give your time to this type of nonsense... YOU KNOW
its nonsense.. so cut it out already.. I have a lot of respect for a lot of you for just hanging out here in general.. you are unique people.. trust
me.. so don't waste that, k?
