Well, It's Been May 4th All Day Long

Where's the beef?
One of the reasons I find Serpo so yawn-worthy is its high wrapper-to-product ratio. Lots of hype for a little tripe.
I'm a professing skeptic
, which means that as a matter of principle I want to keep an open mind
about this. But not so open my brain falls out.
And let's face it. I'm not being given much to work with here. What has been provided so far is so self-discrediting as to be embarrassing to
Now there's this one-shot website which promises to provide evidence that will unmask Serpo as a product of Richard Doty -- unless "a satisfactory
explanation is provided."
How exactly does this make sense?
If this person has actual evidence
proving these claims, then what sort of explanation would render it invalid?
And if an explanation
would render it invalid, then it's not really evidence, is it?
Either way, why not release it anyway, unless you're the kind of person who likes keeping the truth secret?
Doesn't sound like a very convincing case to me.
Just a bunch of drama featuring characters that no one cares about anyway.
A Hoax, Wrapped In Deception, Surrounded By Stupidity
And there it is, the underlying problem with the whole, tired Serpo saga: it just doesn't make a lick of sense.
"I've got information that will change the world forever. Are you ready? Here it comes! Real Soon Now. I've got it all right here. Soon all will be
revealed. Don't be skeptical, you've got to believe me! This information comes from sources which have specialized in lying to the public for
decades, so it's got to be true! I can prove my claims, just not right now. I guess you should know it's not all true, but some of it is true! This
is all part of a disinformation campaign, so you'll need to suspend disbelief. Did I mention that a large portion of this story is absolutely bogus?
Still, you can trust this anonymous source. Or at least the new anonymous source, not like the last three anonymous sources who were lying. Well,
actually maybe the first one wasn't. If you can swallow all the lies, there may well be some startling proof in there! Quite possibly a nonzero
percentage of the story is true. Maybe. Hey wait! Where are you going? Okay, I know it's been a while, but have faith, Revelation Is Just Around The
Corner. All right, I haven't been entirely honest with you up to this point, but they were just small, expedient little white lies that were
necessary to keep you in the dark about all this. I've turned over a new leaf! Check out the new stuff -- it's got corrections
in it based on
your feedback. Soon Serpo will be bigger and more believable than ever before! Wait, come back! You're going to miss out on The Truth. You'll be
sorry! Now only The Faithful will know. You will perish in flames!"
It's the same old song and dance. Serpo makes vaporware look like a mature, marketable product by comparison.
The lazy, subintellectual underachievers who've been trying to make this pig fly didn't even bother to write a decent story. They left that to us.
We even have to wait for someone to put a bullet in this turkey -- someone who is no more credible than any of the other dubious characters floating
around in this murky cesspool of lies, deceit and misdirection.
What a steaming pile of bull#.
I Survived Project Serpo And All I Got Was This Lousy Attitude
The only thing Serpo has proven to me is the importance of not raising kids on the Internet. It's not healthy, and an abomination like Serpo is just
one of the many horrid consequences which can result.
And the great tragedy in my opinion is not the effect Serpo has on the UFO community, such as it is, but the effect it has on the hoaxers.
Those of you who are in on this hoax -- and I know you'll hear these words -- are screwing yourselves. Just look at you. This is pathetic. How can
you even look yourselves in the mirror? How morally and intellectually bankrupt must you be to spend so much of your time on something as utterly
worthless as this?
My advice: Do yourself a favor. Just give it up and walk away. Go and sin no more. Let it go. Get a life. Use what talent you have to improve yourself
and do something meaningful with your time instead of indulging whatever perverse impulses drove you to pull a stunt like this in the first place.
And let us never speak of it again.
Wake Me When It's Over
Now if my fellow members will please forgive my vulgarity and candid -- if unflattering -- outburst (with apologies to all the intelligent,
good-natured and level-headed net.kids who don't get their jollies from these sorts of juvenile pranks), I'm going to go back to actively not caring
about the festering, odoriferous pile of dung that is Serpo.
This is about all I feel like saying about the matter at this point (although I may put this into a podcast for the purposes of catharsis), and I hope
my fellow members can appreciate why I choose not to talk about it much these days.
After all, there is always a danger I might say what I really
think about this sorry little trainwreck, and that is content not suitable for
publication on ATS or any website which restricts profanity in posts.
P.S. If it turns out I'm wrong (which would be fine by me), and the Great Revelation should occur while I'm not looking, please feel free to send me
