Then as I said, dont spread to other sites.
Anon is fine that someone else knows, seeing as ATS isnt
honestly that big or famous. If it starts getting spread too rapidly, though,
dont be shocked if ATS gets DDoS's.

Just sit back, relax, and enjoy the lulz.
Lulz will ensue either way. Either we get to watch everyone freak the hell out
about it, or watch another epic fail by 4chan.
Not like theres anything you all can do about it either.

Its be better if you (everyone here) joined in. As soon as everyone realizes its a joke, they might just start paying more attention to the skies. Not because they care, but so that if something like it happens again, they can say that nothing happened. If that made sense.

Maybe itll get more people to look at the sky from time to time and see whats there.

But as I said, either way, you all cant do anything about it.
Whats going to happen will happen.

Maybe I'm reading the situation differently, but is ATS being threatened with denial of service attacks? Lol, anon really has fallen from grace. You're not going to hold these people back now; you've given them a moral crusade. I have little doubt that there are a large number of ATS'ers now absolutely dead-set on seeing this prank fail.

Anon should have played it cool when they saw this thread, instead of rising up prematurely and going off halfcocked, blowing their figurative 'loads' all over the situation.

You were completely reading it wrong, anon has not yet found out about this thread. my post was moreso about if they did, there could be attacks, because they are able to do so, i only said it because some people were thinking that they arent able to do that.

Now there are "/b/tards" in this thread making threats with personal info?

yup, I do believe that the folks over there have the capabilities of creating all kinds of issues for us.


Crakeur.....

Wow.....


Do you think they might feel compelled to do so over something like this?

If so, that's simply reckless & destructive.

Kind regards

Considering that this was on the front page of ATS for a minute and is now in BTS...

I think the question is.

Have they already attempted to attack ATS?

I'm leaning towards probably.

Why do you think that?

Cheers

I don't see why they'd feel compelled to do anything to us. As mentioned by someone else, we seem to champion many of the same causes and we've never done anything to stifle their right to speak.

Yes.....I would have thought the same as you in that regard.

Kind regards

Wouldnt this just create some sort of reverse psych?

Spreading blatent disinfo, making people think that TPTB are up to something at that time and date?

Anyway, Ill be having my Sunday dinner at about that time... I think.

I see you're in Wales.
Isn't it more likely that they mean California time?
I saw mention of the west Coast on another thread.
Best wait another nine or ten hours before you assume nothing's happening.

Well, if this is going to be on cali time we are a min away. I guess we have 45 min to wait and see. Ive been wondering since 1:00 est if anything had happened yet since I was out. Nice to know I am home in time!

No they have not.


Oh, and rules 1 and 2 only apply to raids, to any ITT that called 1 and 2.


New*** you are wrong.

Stop demonizing 4chan and anonymous. Due to all this demonization I did not even got a welcome from any moderator in my introduction thread like other members get but was hurled abuses and told to get out of ATS but it's ok I did not mind after all it was win, what's better than having a failed introduction for Epic Fail Guy
. (thank you for making my intro success)

Besides this won't go through as there are no lulz in hoaxing a already massive hoaxed subject. It would be like trolling trolls to troll trolls.

Also remember

The #1 rule of the internet - the ONE thing every person using it should know - don't provoke anonymous. just don't do it. Don't acknowledge them, don't borrow from them, just leave them in their own little vaccuum. If you try to engage them in any way, you are going to lose, unless you bring some epic win (see the old spice guy).

Which is in fact an epic win and would provide many lulz

I'm a little confused as to why this thread is here in BTS?

Anyway I must also admit that before ATS, I had never heard of such groups like "Anonymous". I actually thought that this was something about the Johnny Anonymous representitive perpetrating some type of hoax.

Silly me,

Giving this one a bump.

I have the feeling that a similar attempt to hoax a mass UFO is underway as we speak.

It coincides with the supposed October 13 mass sightings.

I don't think it's a full on coordinated hoax, more of an attempt by many attention seeking idiots out there trying to get their 15 minutes of fame.

October 13th was probably 4chans target after the GFOL Blossom Goodchild hoax and the Prediction by a certain ex NORAD official. Perhaps the twitter stuff was all 4chan gimmicks. And i would not put it past Anon to launch balloons in the NYC area. If they can do demonstrations against Scientology why not use the same manpower for the LULZ?

As I told a friend of mine, this will fail.

There are waaay to many hoaxes floating about. They would only be adding more to a huge pile of hoaxes already in place. If this by some miracle gets off,

Worse case scenario: people believe in UFO's more than they used to and that may not be so bad considering it would actually speed up first contact because humanity will believe even if it was a hoax.

How is this any different than all the hoaxes debunked here in ATS anyways?
