Wasn't quite sure how to word this, but you get the idea.
In short, a friend of mine called round last night and said "you have to see this" He is a relative newcomer to alternative views and standpoints, but

don't believe anyone unless you have researched it yourself. (Will try to find exact quote) To these newbies, and also more seasoned traversers,
(myself included) it must be a nightmare to pick the wood from the trees on some occasions. I know that finding these things out the hard way may well
be part of the process, but........
So my idea is this, can we compile this thread as a "reference" for those entities that have been proven to be hoaxers, and as such, can be avoided at
all costs when trying to "Deny Ignorance"
To this end, my starter for 10 is: ALEXANDER RETROV
Over to you
Here it is:
"Read everything, Listen to everybody.
Don't trust anything unless you can prove it with your own research."
- William Cooper (1943-2001)
