Interestingly, I remember this whole topic.
I used to be a member years ago (I was in High School then). Originally, I wasn't sure if it was ATS or not but after hearing about the WITD issue I
am certain it was here.
This site has been an off-and-on thing for me, and now I finally understand what happened. SO knows what he's talking about.
As for this site being COINTELPRO, people can do their own research (as William did) and find supporting evidence for a thesis.
I personally do not trust anyones statements that are not supported by anything. People can claim anything, and people will believe anything, but the
amount of people that illogically believe anything are few and far between on this forum. Luckily we had a tech-savy person like William that could
debunk WITDs claims.
(but for the sake of my argument, lets assume that WITD did not edit his post, and everything went down as fact)
Even on WITDs original post, there is no supporting facts or reference. Jakarta was bombed and he/she predicted it. My biggest qualm is how did he/she
get this info, and what did we and WITD have to gain by it. We could not have stopped the event, and obviously WITD was not in a position to either.
Most importantly, he/she did not disclose the source for the knowledge. It can be assumed that WITD was using this to gain our trust, so that we do
not question his/her ramblings. So, WITD had much to be gained. If WITD had our trust, and could say anything without any sources unquestioned, then
we would have lost our ability to question 'presented' information, which is why we are here to begin with.
WITD was a hoaxer and more importantly sought to destroy this forum into a cloud of disinfo. If anyone was COINTELPRO, it would be WITD.
Ycon was banned 4 times! Wow.
