The primary clue was his insistence that he could not reveal his identity as "they" (meaning the ptb) would shut him down and close GLP. However,
he was banking on the fact many don't realize that, contrary to popular opinion, if the government wants to track you on the net, they can whether
you're using a proxy server or not. Anonymous posting doesn't offer any protection from the government. So the concept that he absolutely had to
stay anonymous in order to protect his identity from the ptb was a farce. He took advantage of the anonymity of GLP because he knew it would provide
him some cover from the average internet junkie, to keep them from learning the truth of who he actually was and to allow his little charade to melt
into a string of disinformation that had people chasing their own tails to keep up. Had he said he was trying to protect his identity so the lunatic
fringe wouldn't show up on his doorstoop and harrass him about the end of the world, he might've retained some credibility, at least for a few
seconds. But the fact he laid this need for anonymity at the feet of the ptb made me realize he was engaged in tomfoolery.
I still believe the prophecies regarding a possibile, futuristic asteroid strike, and the dreams people have had in this regard, and the fact many
astronomers feel it's just a matter of time till something like that actually does happen. But when gaping holes appeared in his initial postings,
prior to the "vacation," there could be no doubt that it was his credibility from the beginning that was in question. The rest of it was just more
of the same.
