In all actuality, things could have worked in the reverse order.

GR said that he monitored these boards for some time, though we have no way of knowing the veracity of it being five plus years. Still, it is within the bounds of logic that there was some study of ATS before posting.

During that 'study period, GR could have picked up on Springers use of the word in the past. A truly devious mind, his, could then have used this word as a parting shot at those who were about to ban him.

Now I am in no way saying this is true. I feel that it is nothing more than a single word that a great many people use. I make my point only to show that there are many ways to look at such limited data.

Sometimes we are all patently absurd with our speculations.

well here's hoping Dear Springer is patently merciful with those here! After all he was hopping mad about it before!

Hmmm....

I was actually thinking about this myself the other day. It could very well be that GhostRaven was a returning banned member that Springer had used the very words "patently absurd", in describing whatever caused the former member to be banned.

I was thinking of one of the biggest hoaxes that ATS found itself in the middle of... "Project Serpo".

I was thinking to myself, that perhaps GhostRaven was once "NetChicken".
Part of my reason for thinking along these lines is what GhostRaven said, as one of his last remarks "practice makes perfect".

But that is just MY speculation. Nothing conclusive either way.

I think that a better avenue of research than making sideways inferences at Springer would be to look at some of the other "Big" hoaxes that have tried to be pulled off here. I think we will find a connection between GhostRaven and one of the perpetrators behind a past "Big" hoax.




2 cents...

edit for clarity, and several typos.

The whole idea is patently absurd. Springer obviously likes to use the phrase "patently false" to express his indignation at accusations against ATS. That's part of his idiolect.


Exactly so. It's a regionalism. It's kinda like us Texans saying "Y'all" instead of "you all" (which is Southern, but not Texan.)

It's patently obvious that a lot of us could be tarred with that patented brush.

Pokey Oats, the only thing I find “patently odd” is your transparent over-reaction to October’s thread Ghostraven and Isaac drone man one and the same (which I address there and you fail to respond to) and your blatant determination to keep people speculating about the “mystery” shrouding these failed hoaxes. You don’t have to tell me I can’t prove it, because I know I can’t, but if you continue to be this obvious, other people might start asking questions too.

Anyway, good luck with the “market research”
