Now, admittedly, Gools was acting a bit heated. From my vantage point, I would guess because he is frustrated with the circular, cardboard theories
that get enthusiasm and support despite their transparency. He is likely frustrated because he feels this is one of those. He is welcome to feel
that way... though he does need to be a bit less heated about it in a couple places.
You and I disagree on very little in this whole situation TheColdDragon,if it be though because of frustration as an excuse for harsh behavior that
I`m sure we have all done that at some point in our lives,but if it somehow justifies the behavior I think DK`s behavior is then also justified.But
Of course they're not. They are likely held to similar rules, with more rules on top of that as moderators. You're going to see things on any
privately owned website that will make you scream "Unfair! Double Standard!" and whatnot. I've been around long enough to realize that... yes, it
is unfair. Yes, there are double standards. But you buy them when you join the community. Sometimes it's a rotten thing, but ultimately, if Gools
steps out of the line of his duties, it'll be dealt with by the other moderators or owners.
I understand this,have done for a few years and also agree for the most part,though more than this was happening as you described above, as I have
seen before on a few occasions.The vultures were circling because they thought they saw easy prey,thuggish at best imo.I couldn`t care less who owns
the site if thats allowed by its staff,or especially in the real world and if by refusing to be a part of it or speaking out against it is wrong by
the site I`ll probably go the way of the Dodo,then so be it.
Its wrong its ugly and bad for the site.
Masqua excluded because she stayed true on being neutral and told everyone to stay on topic.
Well, I don't know about that. Other unsubstantiated threads have often involved a lot more back and forth, a lot more speculation, and a lot more
skeptical thought playing into things and acting as the sound of reason.
Most of the responses I have read have been ultimately very positive, and for little reason.
Your opinion is respected and your darn well entitled to have it,because its the manner in which its expressed.
My positivity toward DK may seem a little reason to you (cant speak for anyone else) is because I dont see him as .........
Writing a book
Getting his jollies off of knowingly deceiving people here
Starting a cult (now thats pathetic,yet nothing was said to that person about single line posts and adding nothing to the discussion just more hateful
I get the impression he`s a decent fella and likable just an average joe like most of us somone who believes something unbelievable to me.simple
One might think that people wanted to believe what DK is saying, and that is all well and good. I suppose my own skepticism arises from the
apparent stonewalling of information.
It would be unhealthy not to question it, for anyone.
As I stated in my previous post, the image that DK linked to looks exactly like standard issue military flares. There is just enough vague
information leaked out by DK to be interesting, but not compelling. In a way, it is general enough to play into many people's ideas.
I saw that and you could be 100% correct,I have also asked DK about the possibilities that what his wife saw and photographed was other than something
created by a mass hallucination device,in the hope he starts to question what he believes so strongly,for his own health imo,though do not believe in
insulting him is the best way to go about it is all.
You see, I think something significant will occur in the coming years. I'm a staunch believer of such. I just find DK's account to be ephemerally
vague in the details, to such an extent that I can't put much credence to it myself.
I with ya on that,even Gools said the same,which baffles me some what because he thinks like wise,if no one else is buying into DK version of the
expected event and selling up and what not,this whole issue then simply becomes one guy and his wife and a few others going of and trying to survive
in the wilderness,though imo prematurely and the events will be different than what he is expecting to happen.
What is interesting to me is hearing from someones perspective of a situation I have thought about being in one day myself,Simple.
What, in specific, is going to happen? Mass Induced Hallucinations? People killing each-other because their non-existent Jesus/Mohammad/Buddha
hologram told them to?
Holograms of flesh eating reptilian giants come to sate their thirst upon the ugly bags of mostly water?
I doubt even DK could even guess to tell anyone and he believes the mass hallucination stuff,I mean how could he know what hallucinations would take
place,other than there will be, because he`s been told there will be.
I enjoyed your post
