Can people not see what is going on here? We have been divided, and fighting with each other on this forum for how many days?? Who cares what he can or can't prove - let's leave that up to him. But fighting amongst each other is called "dividing and conquering" - If that's his motive, well then he's done a good job!
You should practice what you preach.

My self and others have expressed that they doubt the OP's sincerity. I don't think we have an egregious personal agenda.
Let me explain why some would want to call-out a poster for potential fakery.
Most folks who come to these boards have an interest in uncommon/generally "not respected" topics such as UFO's, various conspiracy theories, cryptozoology, etc. Many of us who enjoy these topics are the subject of ridicule by others. Also, there are people who enjoy toying with us "fringe" types. I, and many others, have been let down by the MANY hoaxers on ATS. We are all seeking truthful, enlightening information. It angers many that some would come to these boards simply to make fun of the subject matter that we are interested in.
Does it serve a purpose to RESPECTFULLY say, and without personal attacks, "I think the O.P. is being dishonest because of reason x,y,z"? I say YES it does serve a purpose. There have been times when readers of a thread have been strung along, and have a lot of emotion invested in the so-called "truth" that a poster is offering. And, by bringing up potential flags of a hoax, the O.P. has admitted to being a hoaxer!
So, the only egregious personal agenda I have in pointing out a potential hoaxer, is that I don't wish others to experience the emotional let-downs I have had in the past.
Is it my business to safeguard anyone from getting their feeling hurt? No, and I can accept that.
But I also don't like the fact that there are those who enjoy spending their free time trying to con others.
There's my 2 cents...
Excuse me Timewalker, he's given nothing away! So how does that hurt his chances of a book? If he EVER decides to publish 1? I am waiting for an update from him, as are many here.
BTW - I'm not against the man, I'm merely hoping he can supply us with good info
"Further, they assertion has been made regarding a possible (secret) alternate communication method, possibly FTL. That begs the question, to my mind, "Then how is this (secret) technology going unnoticed? There should have to be some sort of antenna, other transmitter device, something, right?"

Faster than light communication is possible, as is energy transmission using the same technique, and I know what's it's being used for, in the case of the rover.
This device downloads to Earth all the images that the rover has taken in an imaging session. Angelos (a murderous, global, secret male-only society related to the Roman Catholic Church) then examine the photographs. They look for indications of evidence of life, which they don't want you to know about...

nothing but creative writing with aspects of truth sprinkled around to make it half believable. A true whistle blower would not wait this long and would have said what they wanted to say in one post. Whoever started this piece is simply waiting for the lot of you reading this story to come up with the plot and they will run with that idea.
