I dont understand why someone could just scam or trick people here posting that kind of a picture. I mean what did he get doing this? Weird... Waste of time.

So I just got a reply from Sol, or velveeta the OP.....

I tweeted him "did you fake the photos on ATS".
His reply was [snip] ATS.

So......

Yup, that's pretty much what I would have said as well.
Good for him.

Wish I could agree here. He had over 38 hours to reply to people's questions, after saying he looked forward to people's thoughts. Yet he chose not to say one word after being questioned. He posted five replies, then said nothing....even though he was posting on twitter.

So, I don't feel bad for the op. He had many chances, and crapped his credibility away. If you post a sensational thread such as he did, you BETTER be prepared to answer all questions.

Yes! And thanks for the full explanations and calculations, no doubt that it will be useful for future UFO photos.


It might be a good idea to open a thread laying out the technical details of photo analysis, for people who are of a mind to do the calculations themselves. It would necessarily be pretty involved, as there is a lot of ground to cover, and I'm not up to it, since my "explanations" are at times not all that clear, but it still might be a good idea for someone better versed at teaching concepts than I am.

Optics... CCD technology... Geometry and trig... even atmospherics, ALL figure into it, regardless of the technology visible in photos. "Alien technology" and how it works is irrelevant to what the observer SEES - those observations can be measured and quantified in human terms, since it is human eyeballs and human technology doing the observing and recording.

Those can be worked with and analyzed, independent of the technology under observation.

If you submit three pictures and a puppy story to the largest group of UFO enthusiast's ever gathered.

There are going to be pages of questions. If you can't take the heat. Get out of the kitchen.

I also think the site is protective from would-be hoaxer's.

People love to make the UFO subject a joke. That only an idiot would believe it.

We have been ridiculed long enough. Only serious evidence will advance our cause.

That day is coming....Just not today...

Exactly my thoughts.

Greeneyedleo had already done an outstanding job for summarize most of the possible misidentifications in the thread named: "Is it a star, planet, aircraft lights, satellite or.........a UFO? Find out here!".

Yes, opening a "photo analysis" thread could be consuming time for involved people, but I would be glad to help if necessary.

I agree with you on most of what you said, but he did respond for three pages! GEL from the first page was calling hoax before the exif data had even been listed. Its one thing to question the OP to try to get to the bottom of things, however that seems to be the blanket excuse for prematurely debunking most UFO threads. If I was the OP I would have bounced too! You can't expect to get answers to questions when you are calling him a liar from the beginning. On top of that people posted his home address! What would you expect the poor guy to do?

Answer questions. That's what I expect when you start a thread like this. The op KNEW he was going to get grilled...he did some grilling himself in previous posts of his in other threads...it's not like he didn't know ATS was going to come at him, justifiably so. He just turtled....

He posted his own home address, albeit probably unwittingly, when he posted the photos with a GPS location in the metadata, and stated it was taken just back of his house.

ETA: It's not difficult to find a home address if you have an ID to work with. All the location in the photos really added to was the ability to analyze them by making ground measurements of the location.

I expect the bar of civility to be as high if not higher for those that are vetting this type of thread than those that are creating the thread.

The members should have been given much more time to make up their own minds, makes for less confusion.

So what kind of argument is that " the op knew he was gonna get grilled" ?!? So This forum and the members here take pride in what they call an "intellectual" place. And You Think its normal people should expect to get grilled ?

My my what an upside-down world we live in. Yes I see allot of intellectual statements here.

And one more thing : I did some moderating in my time and rule number 1: A moderator doesn't take part of a discussion, that's not your job when moderating, rule 2 A moderator should have an objective voice.

The first is often forgotten on ATS
and the second i didn't see what so ever here.

Ya he did, and 90% of ATS wouldn't have known how to extract that information including myself!

When you post sensational pics on ATS, YES you should expect to be grilled. The problem is the op left without answering the majority of questions, so of course the grilling and speculation was going to kick into high gear.

Yes, I also see "allot" of intellectual statements as well. Or, a lot.

The fact that you insist the OP should expect to get grilled leaves me wondering what the average IQ is around here.

So the white guy walking in the ghetto should expect to get mugged ( no racism intended)
And define sensational picture ?
So if its a blurry blimp it most be an artifact or a hoax
if its a clear picture its a hoax since it'l get labeled CGI

Do you realize how fracked up this way of thinking has become? If its a film on youtube its a hoax since youtube is full of hoaxes. And yes these are known debunk arguments.

I get it, there have been a lot of hoaxes and there is a vetting process that takes place here. I totally support that as I have said before, I just don't care for how that process has been going down lately. It should be a level playing field but its really more of a bully pulpit mentality from the debunkers!

You know its funny....in this thread here

[url=http://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread827162/pg20#pid13863234]

John Paul Zodeaux claims to successfully have argued in court that he does not need a drivers license to drive an automobile in America. When I ask for proof, he refuses to furnish it. We argue for several pages, where he quite clearly cherry picks portions of the state laws I posted in an attempt to "prove" what he is saying. But, he is quite clearly lying and making things up, as anyone who can read can see plainly.

So why isnt he banned yet? Just wondering. It seems to be the same thing.

No one comes here to be 'judged' Mr ThisToiletEarth.

They come here to share, explore possibilities and find answers (and I guess, some like to hoax too).

But I respectfully ask you to show me ONE person, let alone one member on ATS, whose sole purpose is to be judged by others. That's not within our natural human instincts. In fact, it's the opposite. We all want to be accepted unconditionally not judged!

I think you have a point but I do believe you're using the wrong word

Respectfully yours,
Human_Alien

I have noticed certain double standards here for the last couple of years. Here is yet another, just today www.abovetopsecret.com...

Perhaps the UFO forum posters have a subset of rules that others are not required to follow.
