Simply amazing the ideas that some people have.
At no point did I "moderate" in this thread. I took no official actions as a staff member.
I simply pointed out (after being personally attacked - more than once in two different posts and after being told I was talking "rubbish" in an earlier post) what usually happens to people who post like that.
In fact it did happen and warnings were handed out - but not by me.
People who have been around ATS long enough know that moderators don't usually actively moderate in threads they are actively posting in. And that was the case here.
I stated, (quite forcefully because frankly it seems to takes that to get through to some people)
, that I was entitled to my opinions and I took it upon myself to pursue my line of questioning with goods reason. There have already been posts about project blue beam all over this site and there was even a hoaxer who already claimed there was going to be a false flag ET invasion scheduled for this past August (remember this one?). I've been here almost 4 years and in that time I've seen every type of depravity you can see on a board. (I even recall one banned member faking a story about a death in the family to gain sympathy).
It looks like either I wasn't "forceful" enough or took the wrong tack because here we are days later and people are still posting to whine about me rather than discuss the topic.
Take all the swipes you want at me, the staff and the site if you want or you think that will get you anywhere, but it's clear some people cannot or will not get past the fact that I have a title in my profile.
This is why when people become mods on this board their participation goes way down.
People who are making such claims in this thread are jumping to conclusions (yet again).
There are people here who want to believe soooooo badly that they are willing to suspend all of their critical thinking skills to jump on any bandwagon that comes along. They seem upset that I "ruined the fun" or somehow prevented them from posting or discussing something.
What's the solution?
But I'm not about to "keep my tongue in my head" (as one poster put it) to appease the thin skinned who can't separate the official action of a moderator from their personal participation or who feel that staff should "let things go" for the fun of it.
I don't think any other staff member would or should do the same.

What you need to explain is the fact that a half-mile high human figure supposedly appeared in the sky (somewhere in Iraq) to a population that can be (admittedly, crudely and ignorantly) referred to as a bunch of peasant religious freaks without causing any kind of a "stir" in the broader population (who still retain some tradition of word-of-mouth storytelling) or any wild and crazy stories making the rounds in that country, without ever reaching the ears of any outsiders.
The only and most plausible explanation is that it didn't happen.
and from another
My questions ask whether or not you have proof, whether or not proof exists (to your knowledge) some kind of support for even the theoretical possibility of some of the things you claim and some kind of plausible explanation as to the whole giant sky being event you claim to know about.

Also, how/why would they plan the exact date of the attack 20 years in advance? Wouldn't things change over time and mess up their schedule?

Earlier in THIS thread, Darkknight posted a picture of "Something Odd" his wife had seen in the sky. I can say, without a doubt, that the image posted looks exactly like standard issue military flares.
I am 100% sure this is the build up to an 'alien enemy' event and the D4rk Kn1ght in oct 2011
