Exactly. ATSers denied ignorance by not being duped by someone that displayed some very dubious behaviour.
Some people probably gave him money to support him and his site. I wonder how they feel when they visit his site today and see that the site is no
longer operating. Do they wonder what happened to their money? Is it ignorant to look at the facts and accept the truth for what it is, or is it
ignorant to look at the facts and hope that maybe there's more to everything, other than the facts?
While i myself in no way advocate paying money for information, and can agree that his behaviour was a bit "inapropriate" (if it was indeed him that
was here, which you probably know more about than me), i would not go so far as to judge him a hoax because of such behaviour. The information was
Besides, there are plenty of insiders all around the world requiring money for their services, just look at spies, secret agents, journalists, even
lots of online "insiders" like benjamin fulford. Granted some people may be greedy, but i believe people usually don´t do this unless they need to,
they need to eat and sleep after all. Some people take the direct approach of trying to get the money from their customers(which is the less popular
way, and i myself do not like this and would never condone, but at least i can understand this), while others choose more "covert" methods of getting
paid, like with ads on their site, selling email adresses, hit ratings, forwarding traffic etc.
Bottom line is, this guy was not sophisticated, somewhat immature, short tempered, maybe even in need of money and made some bad decisions in how to
get them. But his information, taken seriously, could have saved thousands of lives. He also seems to know something about a conspiracy of vast
proportions considering the sports predictions, and has said he will give a 104 hour notice on the next major event. What is the more important focus
here? His personal traits, or the information? You decide.
ADD: In no way do i try to defend this guy, and i do not advocate anyone pay for his information, nor do i want him unbanned from this site ( If he
broke the T&C in such a extreme manner he should of course be banned), the only thing i advocate here is that people give his information a chance,
try to uncover the truth about his predictions, try to find out more about how he got ahold of this information and how deep the rabbithole really
goes. I consider it very plausible that he knows someone on the inside, considering the quality of the predictions so far.
