I would like to know it is locked too.
Anyway, if this thread is to asnwer that question, thaqn fine.
But why is it people who are vetting the OP, or attempting to with the dribble of information that came out, being called trolls?
Here is what the gray area asks us to do. In fact we are bad members if we dont do this!!
"The Gray Area is a discussion forum that provides a dedicated area for members to post their confessions, disclosures, and related extraordinary
personal experiences. Like the highly speculative Skunk Works forum, The Gray Area will tolerate topics that may be unusually hypothetical or unproven
for the purpose of vetting the stories of thread-starters by the ATS membership at large."
Google through on the word vetting. Nevermind, Ill just do it for yall.
"Vetting is a process of examination and evaluation, generally referring to performing a background check on someone before offering him or her
employment, conferring an award, etc. In addition, in intelligence gathering, assets are vetted to determine their usefulness."
Trolling has a different definition.
Membership at large.
Hey yall thats all of us, me and you and you and you!!!
But here we get called trolls.
I will say it again.
An abridged synopsis could have been posted from the get go. This fdeal has already passed.
AE claims he revealed all in a previous post, if we are impatient. He failed to link to that, but someone else did.
All AE claims is something to do with faster than light something.
Several people posted links to ftl articles.
Again not troll behavior.
And I myself brought up the fact I was disappointed in the posting style method. If you start a thread I have the right with in t n c to respond my
opinion. We all do. I never called the OP a troll, or a hoaxer, I was trying to explain why the cliff hanger teaser method is lame. I work forty hrs a
week. I love to relax online at ats. It sucks when a noobie does this, and telling the noob valid reasons to change his posting style in the future to
NOT aggravate us seasoned posters was a kindness and not trolling.
I dont like the delivery, sue me for saying so. It sucks and is bad posting form.
Reread what the top of the gray area says in my quote and quit lumping us all who dont have time or might forget this thread by the time it is done,
trolls. That is trollish of itself and this thread reminds me of Sisyphus.
Maybe he does have some great contributions, I hope so, his subject matter is very fascinating.
But what raised my meter is I am a writer, and the phrase about hearing the whisper of the snake reeked of action thriller dialogue, or narrative. But
maybe the guy is a gifted writer. I dont know yet, unlike a lot of folks, my mind is still not made up yet.
OK, thats my contribution at vetting.
