Jon Ronson (of Rulers of the World documentary fame) has been spending time with Robbie Williams in Nevada reporting on Williams' obsession with UFOs. It appears that like many of us here on ATS, Mr. Williams also logged in quite a few hours on here.

"I've been spending so much time at home on the internet on sites like,"

source (Guardian)

You never know who is reading your posts here on ATS. Or, who's post your reading!

mods: wasn't sure where to post this, here or in the media section. (although, I'm sure it isn't Breaking News)

Of course
ATS gets a plug from pop star Robbie Williams

But at least now it's noted in the ufo section.

Isaac Koi posted about this in the BB&Q forum but now that I think about it, unless Robbie is a registered member he may only look at the UFO forum and he might miss our thanks.

As one of the three owners of I would like to thank Robbie for the mention, very cool thing to do and it is appreciated.

Great find. I've just read the link.

I'd love to give Robbie a big hand shake and let him know that he's not alone in his search. I've had many an experience and am still seeking answers.
I'm sure he's now a lot more aware of why there are not multitudes of people studying this subject. If you're not, Robbie, then you could say the truth is in here on ATS (as to why it's not a global topic as such).

Shame Robbie's been let down by a few psychics too.. Makes me wonder if Robbie is a member and I've already done his avatar..

One question I would like to ask Robbie... can I try on his storm trooper suit?

While it's very cool that robbie decides to advertise ATS to gain more publicity for it, I see it very irrelevant that some celebs are enjoying this site. I think that - altho he has nice voice and good performing skills - but in my opinion, its more like discredit. Sorry about that. Just my opinion. No need to reply. Thanks.

Yep, your so right. What real help does robbie bring, except exposure, which the ufo thing already really has. If a person put aliens or ufo into google it would come up with some ats threads, anyway.

He only mentioned ATS as he's interested by it, like all of us he'll bring something, give him time lol. I read on here for about 2-3 months before I joined, quite intimidating at first, some seriously intelligent people on here

I can understand the site owners thanking him for the exposure, but why the, albeit mild, flaming?

thanks. EMM

Yes, the UFO subject does have exposure, but for many, not in the way that it deserves.

Many people are still labeled as oddballs or ridiculed in other manners. Unless you've actually experienced something, like I have, then you've not really left yourself with many options.

Do you keep quiet on the matter? Do you sit back and let others provide the proof that a lot of people scream out for? Or do you join in with others and happily ridicule those who've had experiences. We may all have seen some videos or photos of stuff that is 100% genuine, but would we recognise it to be so? Are you prepared to believe it to be real if a major global figure stood up and claimed it to be real? Is that what it would take?

No doubt there is a very large amount of data regarding the subject yet it is still a field of study that is no taken seriously enough or is being kept from being studied properly. It has fallen onto many to use their own finances and personal time to try to make sense of all that has and is happening.

It's the same for the ghost hunters. Loads of experiences, loads of evidence, yet it boils down to groups of people using personal resources to do investigations.

Day in and day out we are presented with evidence (real or not) and it has been left up to those who believe or want to believe to sift through that evidence and piece it all together.

From small acorns do big oaks grow. Such is the way of things and I feel it to be a bit of a shame that such studies are not given as much priority as we give to warmongering or other dubious human actions.

ATS is about the search for the truth. I'm here for that. Whether or not I find the truth in my life time is another thing, but at least I've contributed towards something I believe in and believe is very real.

I think it's great that a high profile,public pop stary type blerk reads ATS. He is in a great position,that many of us are not in. He has the financial capability to further his research as much as he wants. He can go out and get what ever infrared telescopes/cameras that you'd need to set up a little ufo reseach shop. And if you're reading this Mr Williams,get on it,innit. We're all willing to help,we all want disclosure!

Stoke are 2-0 up,so at least he'll be in a good mood if he does come on today

I read that in the Guardian today and as a result decided to sign up.

posted on Apr, 19 2008 @ 12:52 PM

See,it's bringing more people here already! Publicity is good ya!!

posted on Apr, 19 2008 @ 01:05 PM
I could swear that he's already joined ATS:
i wonder who is

perhaps he's been just a lurker, perhaps he's in my buddy list, perhaps is someone who always disagrees with me

Anyway, i find NICE that ATS has been mentioned on the Guardian by a Star

Interesting that he plugged the site, you never know who is going to join the community next - or who may just be browsing, some great idea's for movies in here if you know what I mean

posted on Apr, 19 2008 @ 01:23 PM
This is quite cool actually!

Well think about it, if a celeb goes out like this, it will change alot of people's thoughts, from being "i dont care" to "interesting" .
So is there any good to come out of something like that?

More media exposure to this subject.
Perhaps it could follow with more celebs, which in their turn will have their impact on this.

But ofcourse, it could turn out to be the total opposite outcome, more ridicule.

Welcome to ATS Robbie Williams.

Be well. Enjoy your anonymous browsing. Be part of a growing group of celebrities who are aware not only on a global level but on a universal level.

posted on Apr, 19 2008 @ 01:29 PM
The only part of this news I find interesting is this will result in in more visitors due to the plug.

Why is it really such a surprise that famous people frequent good websites such as ATS ??

Whatever your job maybe you are still human after all

Besides I like the fact that most people here prefer their anonymity.


Wishing you the very bestest.

Indeedy,I mean,we all found it ok,didn't we
your interests will dictate your internet browsing habbits. So if you have an interest in ufos,then it's natural to find a massive site like this.

Thanks robbie!!

The Guardian is a great newspaper.

The only one that wasn't scared to publish the articles on the Bush - Hitler connection and 10 steps to fascism.

The Guardian is a sparkle of hope for the truth to come out to the masses.

Not a surprise, you can expect a lot of celebrities (well at least those interested in conspiracies and paranormal) to visit ATS.
I am pretty sure govt agencies are also keeping an eye open here!

posted on Apr, 19 2008 @ 03:37 PM
I know that Robbie Williams has a serious interest in much of what is discussed on ATS. He has visited similar sites in the UK on occasion. I think we should treat him with the same respect that any other fellow researcher would expect. He's looking for answers, just like us.
