Either some are being disingenuous, purposely obtuse, or some that are defending this over the top behavior never read what was said. Who knows, but
on my board Id have banned them already. Theyve been asked, its been explained, theyve been warned, we've all had the patience of Job with them, and
they whine about freedom of speech on a privately owned board.. and keep going. There is an admin I truly respect and have observed for a long time. a
GOOD person of a sort thats hard to come by. Personal ethics and fairness.. and a fearlessness to say and do whats right regardless of popular
opinions. I take it personally when these people of NO understanding put him and this thing he and others made that we use for free at risk just to
stroke their ego and play super secret private investigator and repeatedly post PI and nonsense. I happen to like it here and plan on this board
The majority of the rest of us did see what was happening as it was happening and it wasnt a matter of folks ONLY discussing what was in dispatch
transmission or discussing facts. Not even speculations based on facts. It was wild disjointed, illogical leaps which not only could be considered
libelous, but smacked a freakish stalking mentalities. Absolute ignorance of real world and real life things.. and then they circle jerk eachother on
how awesome their super sleuthing skills are. Some posts were really great.. and were informative. Those arent the people who the objections are aimed
at by other members and administration. The fixation some of our posters have with certain aspects of this is really disconcerting and worrisome. It
is as sick as back when the wm3 case was going on and autopsy pics of the children were passed around like trading cards on certain boards. Heinous
behavior. It was not a matter of what Ive seen here at ATS since 07 ( this is 2nd account) which was at times wild speculation but never harmful or
vindictive toward a private citizen or posting PI... or groups of ghouls.. and the few times it happened it was very isolated... and taken care of bu
BOTH membership and administration. Now we have large groups of posters gang stalking a person nd thinking that freeedom of speech gives them the
right to do so! Its outrageous.
It is a normal standard by most GOOD message boards/forums do not allow PI to be discussed, posted, and libelous statements to be left to stand.
Unfortunately the patients are running ( and even own) some of the asylums when it comes to conspiracy theory based boards. Im seeing a lot of GLP
behavior here.. as in the OP article. I personally have some faith that the owners/mods will take this in hand as a hell of a lot of people will leave
if this turns into anything like that place. I see a HUGE influx of new members recently.. I only pray they arent GLP refugees.. its happened before.
Im very much for open conspiracy discussions. Even sensitive subjects can be handled by ATSers and have been in the past. Why this one is bringing out
the absolute ghoulishness and stalker idiocy, I dont know. Maybe its not the story, its the posters themselves ( many new) who have no idea concerning
board etiquette or common sense when dealing with private citizens and legal issues.. yet say they can do these things and disgustingly hide under a
"freedom of speech" shield. Even if you explain it to them.. they reject fact and babble on and on! We all know its BS.. now theyre being called on
I personally intellectually comprehended the tragedy, but I didnt cry in my car, wallow in sadness, all of the things that were described here. I just
dont feel over the top things like that and spew it all over boards. However, even I can understand that there are acceptable and non acceptable
behaviors and actions concerning a tragedy and folks private lives. Im repulsed by those who are obsessed with this case and smear the dead kids'
blood all over themselves and then when called on it... pretend they do this as they are "investigating" things out of a sense of justice to get the
REAL story. Theyd not know justice if bit them and it doesnt take a genius super sleuth to google and then post some disjointed nonsense together and
call it a theory. barf.
