Just saying "it's a hoax" with nothing to back it up.....is just supposed to be "ok" and we should accept the wisdom of folks here who reply with
"it's a hoax" and leave it at that? Most of us don't know anyone else other than by their post count and their screen name....that's no
"authority". I think that's the wrong way one learns and searches for the truth. I think there are many here who look down upon those who
question or don't know or who are ignorant about a subject. Ignorance is something folks overcome by asking questions - ignorance is only 'wrong"
if when presented with 'facts' you still press on and accepted a falsehood despite the evidence. People question things....to search for the
truth....and that's what the OP did. Their "intent" wasn't to present a hoax as fact.....they QUESTIONED whether it was or not. But when someone
is asking if something is a hoax or not, then back up your answer in some way. Granted, *some* folks *did* do that, but many didn't....and I think
it's what keeps some folks from asking questions or posting things (the condescending attitude resulting from the anonymity of the interwebz thus
losing any "social graces" in the process)....hence the "bully" comment from the original poster. I am in no way saying I think the OP topic was
true......but i think some folks here need to conquer their lack of social skills before posting to folks or at least see the INTENT of the OP.
Well, I do indeed enjoy these forums for the simple fact that folks can discuss and find out about all the non-MSM news/info they want.....most of
which still falls into the hoax or disinfo realm, but.....a purpose is still served, and for that, my hats' off to ATS, ATS' general community who
do have social skills, and to the OP who presented their OP in as good of a manner as any. For this reason i give kudos to the OP. And you took all
the bs in stride, which you should also be commended for as this is one of the first threads which didn't seem to degrade into personal attacks as
much as I've seen in other posts.
As for the "three spaceships", i think it's a hoax and am more curious whether ELEnin is a brown dwarf or just a passing comet with no affect on
the rest of this solar system.....
