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.

Your analogy is as ridiculous as your expectations.
This is nothing like yelling fire in a theater. At all. OP did not yell. He spoke carefully and provided a thorough explanation about the phone
call he claims he recieved
. How would you propose he provides evidence of this?
Further, it was not in a crowded theater. It was on a crowded website in which people are used to
people coming here with hoaxes and ridiculous
OP did not claim there was a threat. At all. this is the single point on which your analogy fails the most. No claim. Whatsoever. OP did
that he received a phone call. And as I've already covered, there are definitely highly
plausible reasons that someone could get a call like
this, other than an actual threat, or a hoax on the part of the OP. I'm sorry you fail at understanding this as badly as you fail at analogizing and
coming up with relevant points.
