What kind of idiot would do this kind of prank?
Its' obvious, most people here don't believe it's real.
So why would anyone would want to make such random calls, unless there is some or high degree of truth.

Not Fear-Mongering, BUT
Was reading The Toronto Star this morning and came across this story.
Now the Darlington plant is a little further away from Toronto, than say, the Pickering plant. However, with your mystery phone call, and this article coming out in the same week... it's unnerving, to say the least.
Damn you koadie, see what you started!edit on 4-12-2012 by sumgai because: Formatting

And this is why I got so harsh last night. Now some people are worried about their loved ones in Canada based on some alleged phone call someone received. I understood that the OP was asking if anyone else had received such a call. I wasn't that dense last night. But that wasn't my point. Along with asking if anyone else received such a call, the poster still put it out there to the ATS community that "hey also, the threat was a nuclear bomb, have a nice day". I'm sorry, but when someone comes claiming they received a threat of a nuclear attack on a major world city, I expect some modicum of evidence. To not provide such evidence, is wrong. Its not like the usual hoax thread of "I'm time traveler x from timeline z" but in fact, this is far more serious. I wouldn't post such a thing on any public board until I had done some kind of research into what happened myself. Its like yelling FIRE in a theater because some stranger whispered it in your ear and then disappeared.
And given the history of people with a very low post count, coming to post an extreme thing, like a nuclear attack, Im sorry, but 100% of them turn out to be unfounded or outright hoaxes.
So was I harsh and rude, yes. Do I apologize for that, yes. I was not in the best of moods last night. But I will not apologize for asking for proof to a claim of a nuclear threat.edit on 3-12-2012 by bknapple32 because: (no reason given)
