I'm not entirely certain if this posting will be allowed to stand, but I will make an attempt anyway, if for no other reason than to make sure the truth is known.
A few days ago, there was an unauthorized login to my account in which the perpetrator attempted to delete several posts of mine, but was unable to do so, since the forum-imposed time limit for editing a post had expired. As a secondary alternative, a thread was created in my name claiming that everything I had previously posted was untrue. This thread was not posted by me, but by the person who gained unauthorized access to my account. As some here have keenly observed, the writing style throughout the fake posting contains clear stylistic differences from that of my own postings, despite dubious attempts to make it sound similar by using phrases such as "Fellow members of ATS."
There are further and more complicated details surrounding the situation which I have discussed with the board administrators in private, but which I cannot discuss in public. I have been working with the board admins over the last few days to get this issue resolved and my account reinstated. There are still various issues in my real life that I need to resolve that are related to this incident, but for the most part they have been resolved, and I now have a more clear understanding of what I am and am not allowed to discuss with this community. But at this point I want to make it clear to the community that the posting created in my name was NOT true, I am NOT a "kid" as was insinuated in the posting, and I am NOT here to troll the community, or whatever the underlying assumption was. I understand that there are some who may have been permanently rendered skeptical of anything I say as a result of the content contained in the unauthorized posting, and that is a shame, but I also have confidence that there exist some who are willing to give it a second investigative look.
I hope that the issue can be resolved, and if so, I look forward to continuing to interact with this community.

I #ing told you people >.>
Told us what? That the OP is not so "enlightened" that he's not above blatantly violating T&Cs by creating a different account after he was banned? That he is so desperate for attention from the membership of ATS that he couldn't find another outlet for his "theories" where he wouldn't be disregarding the rules that we all have agreed to?
P.S. Dudeman, your 'Occult Library' link is dead. I sense that it may be a message from beyond the Aethers.
but I was the first to tell you guys, that it was fishy
You should really quit while you are ahead. Or maybe you just enjoy being a juggernaut of silliness. I can't believe that you are lining up for round two of disappointment. I have to admit that your tenacity is admirable, but when this is over you and I, and all the rest of us will still be here. Remember who your friends are (That's us, even Skylar).
The world may never know, but I don't think TPTB hacked him.

He would only see that if he were the one trying to delete the post. Either that, or he was looking over the "hacker"s shoulder. Otherwise, it would have to be moderator notice.
