Well, I must say that reading your second entry with all of the names listed was a bit of a shock to me. Probably because
I am one of those listed.
Yes, I participated in the original Titor discussion and I even used my real name, something I have not done on the internet since thus the lack of
any search engine locating it.
If an ATS mod wanted to check the email account tied to my login ID here, they would match my name to one of your "88 fake names". I would prefer my
name removed however being part of your "conspiracy of hoaxers" is actually kind of neat. Wrong, but neat. But having a mod confirm may also be the
only way to convince you or the other posters that I am me, not someone pretending to be...me.
In 2000/2001, I was a new internet user. Since I used to listen to Art Bell's program at night (I was a professional musician and would enjoy an hour
or two of his show in the early hours of a morning after a gig), his website was one of the first I went to once I got online access. Titor had
started posting around that time and the more interesting the discussion became, the more I wanted to participate. So I got my first ever registered
login to a message board. Being stupid about those things, I used my real name, not a nickname like Beaux.
My postings were more...philosophical in nature...as I recall. I did not know, nor do I know now
, whether it was a hoax or the real thing.
Titor was pretty convincing which is why 8 years later, they (and you) are still talking about him. I never bought into it and certainly never tried
to convince anyone that he was truthful or not. But I do have an open mind like most ATS posters, I believe.
Being a part of that discussion as it occurred "live" is fun to recall and I have visited the Titor website a few times to see if his predictions
ever came true. I knew there was a bit of a stir among the online community that deals in the unknown about the story but to be frank, I remain
unconvinced. The proof simply is not there.
So, Razimus, you may be right. But in this instance, by referring to me as a "fake name", i.e. an unreal person, you are very wrong. Your caveat is
It's possible a few of these names could be real people, but that would only be possible if they never posted about Titor under that name ever
This is the only time since that Art Bell message board, that I have posted anything about my "Titor experience" for a very good reason: I don't
care that much about it and think it a fake. And if I had
posted again about it, I certainly would not have done so with my real name. In fact,
I think I may have only posted on 1 or 2 unrelated threads on that board and then only a few lines of opinion. I eventually left it for things of
greater interest on the web to me. And with several different "aliases" or nicknames not related to my own.
Finally, I have no affiliation with any of those others listed, I think I visited anomalies.net once or twice but certainly never registered to do
Thanks for my 15 minutes of fame. I was hoping for more from it.
