How difficult would it be to edit the transcripts and how can anyone prove that they were or weren't edited? Probably a lot more difficult than editing the original voice recordings. Why was this information classified for 40 years? What exactly has changed in the past 40 years to declassify it? Very interesting how this information is being released now while more and more people become skeptical about the moon missions.
Why would astronauts be joking and making sarcastic jokes during such a supposedly serious mission? Were they not instructed that everything was being recorded and to be as serious as possible when reporting what they observed? They weren't exactly going on a field trip to DisneyWorld - or were they?

Just found this in the transcript of Apollo 14 (Command Module) on page 120/121:
LMP: Sure does. Really got a very complex central structure.
CMP: It's got one of the biggest central peaks a_ound. It's a very unusual crater. But there are some dark areas in it that Farouk has gone on record as saying they are dikes.
CMP: High Sun. That's one right down there; Just shows how it dominates the whole photograph. Just an extremely bright crater. Sun angle Just isn't high enough for you to see it here .... Yes, THEY're mining it , I think.
Who the hell is mining what exactly on the moon?

and guidance look good, and the stage is good. Over.
00 02 45 21 CDR Apollo 11. Roger.
00 02 45 50 CMP Don't look out window 1. If you're - if it looks
like what I see out window 5, you don't want to
look at it (laughter).
O0 02 45 55 CDR I don't see anything.
00 02 45 56 _ Why?
00 02 45 57 CMP These flashes out here - -
00 02 45 58 CDR Oh, I see a little flashing out there, yes.
00 02 46 03 CMP You see that? Buzz is usually looking - Just
watch window 5 for a second. See it?
00 02 46 10 LMP Yes, yes. Damn, everything's - Just kind of sparks
flying out there.
00 02 46 14 CMP Yes, that's - Oopsedo.
O0 02 46 16 CDR Man, that really - -

Phew! I tried to give this thread a flag but I'm not familiar with how that works. Sorry.
Great thread, it should go on until Jim Oberg declares it "Baloney!"
If only it were that simple.
Actually, new access to new historical records is always a good thing, even if those promoting it remain clueless about real space jargon and context. The more stuff comes out, the better, in the long run.

Then what are these?

More likely, what was it that they really mumbled, since the transcriber put a big question mark right in the sentence -- that you left out, BTW. Can anybody get the original audio?
Since Ed Mitchell was one of the guys looking out the window, you can bet he'd have mentioned artificial lunar activity if he'd seen it.

Look at LunarCognita's other theory about "Quindar Tones" and you'll see quickly an obsessed, biased, no proof bunch of bunk.
Yeah, NASA had a computer capable of analyzing live television signals frame by frame and modifying the pictures that long ago.
Nice try man, everything from that point forward is just BLAH BLAH BLAH.
I guess when they weren't on TV they just kept the tones in there to be annoying.
