I joined ATS in June, just before Dan Tanna's 'Violent Encounter with an alien being thread'.
I followed it from the beginning, but was in the wrong time zone to participate at first. I had to keep catching up the next day. Eventually, I
started to ask a few questions, but didn't like to outright call him a hoaxer.
I tried very hard to be fair. I recognised, too, that it's very hard to provide absolute proof of anything on a forum.
On the suggestion of another member, I looked at two of Dan's earlier threads and thought they were extremely iffy. So I went back to the 'alien
encounter' thread and my posts were a bit more robust. Then the thread started to die off so I went to read something else.
That's when I came across D4rk Kn1ght and I became suspicious that they were the same person.
I reported my suspicions with a few bits of info to prove my point, but got no response. That was in late July or early August.
A couple of weeks after that, another member openly accused DK of being DT - or vice versa - so I contacted him and we collaborated and sent in
another, very lengthy, report late in August. We didn't get a response.
Dan Tanna then said he was leaving ATS but he didn't. He had a thread going about the akashic records and spiritual experiences, and that wasn't
really the place to call him out.
Then he came back with the Culloden Woods thread, and I posted there to let everyone know my suspicions because I was so disgusted with the thread.
I would have left it there, but D4rk Kn1ght came back on the scene. I had a huge 'debate' with him on his '28-10-2011' thread. Some of it got a
bit silly, but I raised several pertinent points.
He responded to the points, one by one and I replied in kind when I wasn't satisfied with his answers.
A mod then came on and told us off for tit-for-tat posting and censored one of DK's posts. I made as graceful an exit as I could even though in his
last reply he mis-quoted me (left out part of what I'd said) so he could make me look stupid when he replied.
Other people raised points too, and DK didn't come back to answer them all. Instead, he was posting on this thread. I'd had enough, so I made
public my concerns about him.
I don't think it's anything untoward that people who doubted him should speak up. We each have a point of view, and something someone else says may
help to fill in the gaps.
If he's as big a hoaxer as I believe he is it's about time people spoke up and exposed him.
And, yes he has made lots of posts and threads, racking up his points. It's unfortunate that he's earned so many with this type of thread.
