If the OP is indeed the creator of those Youtube videos, then I welcome NibiruShock2012 with open arms. Why you ask? Because this is exactly what ATS
stands for people. Denying ignorance.
Calling for the op to be banned because he is an admitted hoaxer on another site makes no sense and does not follow the T's and C's of ATS. He
didn't perpetrate a hoax here, he did it elsewhere. What he did here however is create the oppurtunity to open the eyes of a number of members here
and for other people who may browse to this site. That is a GOOD THING in case anyone here is having trouble understanding that.
This reminds me of my very first post on ATS. I linked to a youtube video that supposedly showed an alien entity outside a _ The reason why I
posted it was because barely anyone commented on it. Sounds like I'm trying to get it attention right? Technically I was, but for the very
specific reason of investigating it to determine whether or not it was a hoax.
The first few replies were YOU SHOULD BE BANNED, MODS PLEASE BAN THIS GUY, THIS VIDEO IS GARBAGE WHY DID YOU POST THIS YOU WILL BE BANNED. So
because I wanted other opinions on this video I ended up getting bashed to no end, regardless of the fact that I explained how I brought this to the
attention of ATS just so it could be put to rest one way or another. It's my belief that the more hoaxes exposed to the light of day, the better off
we all are as a whole because we are learning how to better deny ignorance.
So do we have to give sympathy to NibiruShock2012? That's up to you. What we should do is thank him for exposing something as a hoax. Now we all know
better. Whether or not you believe this has destroyed all of his credibility is your own decision. But banning him is the worst possible thing that
ATS can do, because it suggests that telling the truth is a bannable offense because it bothered enough people.
For those of you telling him to get a life or that he's such a bad person.. So what? Seriously? What the hell does it matter to you? You just read
the admission of a hoaxer, which teaches a great many people what to look for in a hoax, and to be aware in the future! The positives far outweigh the
And furthermore, his Youtube videos should not be removed. There is talent there in the creation of these videos, so they should displayed. Also they
could be used as a teaching tool for those interested in the Planet X/ Nibiru school of thought. In order to recognize a diamond of truth, you ought
be exposed to imitations and false knowledge. How else are you supposed to develop your ability to deny ignorance if you're never exposed to any of
