He makes the most ludacris claims I have ever heard and does not give one dabble of fact or proof. ...
... This latest 911 picture claim is just insane.I truly am starting to think there is more to John and maybe ATS in gereneral than simple
imagination.I mean John had his own forum now,wtf is the deal.
Although I do love ATS and there is no other like it.But your motto is DENY IGNORANCE,yet you give this guy his own forum?Jeebus man how
hypacritical.Everyone else gets heckled or even banned for doing way way way less than John.Yet this guy gets a forum!!!!Whats going on around here
I think they keep John around for "ratings" purposes if you will.Although one must admire John resolve and ability to take criticism.I have always
admired that about him and almost wrote a u2u saying sorry many times.Then I read a John Lear thread and change my mind heh.
Seriously though John,no matter what your motives are you have great resolve,and I can honestly admit I admire that about you.

I agree to an extent. I really wish you would reformat your message to include spaces and correct some spelling errors, though. You have no idea how
easily posts are overlooked just because of bad format.
For instance, if I see a topic that starts out like "OMIGOSH YOU MUST SEE THISUFO I FOUND IT IN MY BAKCYARD ITS SO WONDERFUL...", I may skip it
because I think it is a n00b speaking, but sometimes, the person is being genuine. This is ATS, and it being such, people expect a certain level of
decorum. Anybody can type any which way he or she chooses, but the ones that are more thorough and "look pretty" get read more often.
But enough of that. I do agree that him having his own forum confuses me a little bit and that it is probably because of the "star" factor. Still,
unlike anybody who posts a random story on here, John has a lot of credentials to back up his claims. When a random user posts something ludicrous,
there's really nothing to back up what he says. When John posts something, he puts all of his previous experience on the line.
One thing is for certain: This is ATS. This is, supposédly, the most advanced conspiracy forum on the site. It would be hypocritical to not
allow conspiracy theories about the ATS staff, right? I mean, if somebody posted something to the effect of "I think Vagabond (no hard feelings from
that one time, lulz) is an alien from Omicron 85", then yeah, it should be deleted, but if somebody actually posts something of logic
leans towards a conspiracy of some sort, it should be allowed.
Perhaps you should make a topic in the General Conspiracies Forum stating a conspiracy of John getting his own forum. If your post is using the upmost
logic and reasoning (well-thought theories, no flaming, etc.), I cannot see why it would be deleted. That way, you will either receive no response
from the ATS staff (strengthening your theory), or a "thick" response from one of them giving details about why they thought he deserved his own
forum. Then, you could go from there (keeping maturity, reasoning, and logic in mind at all times).
Just my two cents.
