It was fun... it really was. It was even more fun when someone would say "awww.. that's a hoax!" and the rest of us would run in and yell "No! Black Helicopters are landing on our lawns!!!"
I'm sure something equally silly will happen on April Fool's... and who knows WHAT will happen with the Santa Claus watch..,
Take the green pills tonight, they contain your sense of humor... seems like you need 'em. As we've said, this was not a hoax since hoaxes attempt to hide the truth. Instead, we made it very easy to discover the reenactment nature of this event... all it took was one Google search on any of the names involved. More than two dozen members did so yesterday, and enjoyed it. Think green pills.

TOS Item #1
You will not post any material that is knowingly false, misleading, or inaccurate.
Since this whole topic was knowingly misleading, the camera phone 'picture' was fake, and put into a misleading context, the entire 'Tribute' was in violation of the TOS, and would have been seen as so without the intervention of high level ATS personel. Just claiming it was a tribute does not exempt it from the TOS.
You can laugh it off all you want to, but it is a technical violation of the TOS, and done so at the highest levels of ATS. That is what makes this so much more then a fun halloween game.

...Hope nobody got too upset.
After all mods are people too. And they can't in any way be responsible for our reactions to an anonymous internet source on halloween!
We all WANT to believe. Its why were here at ATS, but we should be careful about being too gullible.

I agree with Iknownothing, I am one of those people who has lost several loved ones recently! I think it was just in poor taste considering the condition of the world today. Terrorist put fear in people.....does that make all of you any different??? I always taught my kids "if it hurts someone for even a minute, it is WRONG." I trusted ATS, I didn't think I had to research everything that I read like the other sites. As far as taking the green chill pill, you have no idea what state of mind everyone on this site is in. Some of us choose to not laugh and have a jolly time due to situations around us at this time. It is our choice which threads we choose to read.....you took that right away from me with your scam, not just one of you, but a number of you!
