I thank you all for your kind cooperation

What a great laugh this has been for several days now

The guy's from that yahoo message board that got closed were in fact several ATS moderators. TC is no DHS representive.

And did any of you guy's seriously believe that Simon would cooperate with the DHS???


Oh man this is SO funny

It was a nice one, made my day at work a lot more interesting anyway!

just curious as to why myself and xaos were singled out for William's messages - do we appear to be the most gullible ones or the one's people would have taken most notice of if we had of posted what we were sent?

I hate to say I told ya so.. but ummm.. I posted first it was a hoax..

But clear up one thing... Why was TC all geeked up on the weekend, was that part of this somehow? I assume so.. but the connection isn't as clear..

One should probably not tempt a bunch of paranoids....

Funny thing about this was, I basically went away for a couple days, because of the apparent "hackers". Having seen it before on a message board, and having to reload my hard drive after the mess, I just stayed away for a bit...pity, as I missed most of the fun it seems... Of course, having seen it before (and for real), I fell for it hook line and sinker (the hacker part, not the DHS)... Kudos for the creativity....

This was a total riot, I have to tell you.

The rest of the staff here at ATS thought I'd be the best for the job of jerk-face (I'm not sure if that is a compliment or not. I'm leaning toward thinking it was not!

You guys were great. Obviously, there were two distinct camps, one side felt that the country is indeed in danger from an enemy that wants our demise, with which I agree, and the other is very paranoid of a strong, centralized government, with which I also agree. Both sides are correct. There was no wrong side, and I am proud to be associated with all of you nutbags!

A special hats off to Illuminati. His particular viewpoints were an obvious point of interest to Thomas Crowne the Government snitch and he did a marvelous job of playing my antithesis, wouldn't you all agree?

Happy April Fools!

And by the way, all you guys who called me evil rotten names and sent me death threats, nohard feelings. I'm on my second marriage, do you really think you can scare me or hurt my feelings?!?

We may now resume our regularly scheduled discussions. With a better sense of humor, now, I hope.

That was a good one guys! But the " Do not remove, under penalty of law" Did you get that off my mattress?

posted on Apr, 2 2003 @ 10:44 PM
Alright, I'll own up to it... I was shaken up for a little while, and was rather pissed off. After looking at it for a while, I got the feeling it probably was a joke, but it was a very well developed intricate one.

However, I do stand by my assertions that HS likely did monitor that little stunt, and all reactions are likely being analyzed by thier psyop unit to guage public reaction (and how to overcome public reaction) for just such a public policy.
