While I don't disagree that the OP could be leading up to a hoax of some kind, the fact remains that the OP has not presented anything in the way of
being false or misleading:
From the ATS Hoax! forum:
[HOAX!]: Dedicated forum for ATS threads that have been proven to be hoaxes, frauds, misrepresentations, part of deceptive schemes, or grossly
errant theories/speculations on a variety of topics. Topics in this forum will range from those that have proven to be an actual hoax to those where a
significant majority of ATS members believe the subject matter to be based on fraudulent material.
ATS opens up a bit more on the word "Hoax" than it's normal definition:
A hoax is a deliberately fabricated falsehood made to masquerade as truth.
So far, the OP has not posted anything that is a fabrication or a falsehood. They have not posted anything that is a fraud.
They have not made any grossly errant theories or speculations (yet).
Neither you, nor anyone else has proven that the OP's thread is a "part of deceptive schemes".
The only thing that you have proven is: The OP doesn't know how to make threads very well here on ATS yet, and from what I can tell, you can't judge
a members behavior on a single thread, unless it's something very obvious (posting certain links, articles, etc that are known hoaxes).
Nor do you have a majority of members agreeing with you. You have a single individual that agreed with you.
You know my posting history. I tend to STRONGLY disagree with OPs that post "structures", "alien bases", etc, etc.
However, I don't tend to declare someone as something simply because they've not produced their evidence yet. I'd rather wait and see what it is
they think they've found.
It's true, the OP is taking much too long to post anything else, and should have posted it in their OP. It's been suggested that they were not
wanting to actually add content here, but were instead fishing for traffic on their web sites. The mods even locked the thread for review for that.
But they unlocked it. So the mods are satisfied, for now.
I'd rather give the OP a chance to finally post their findings so we can discuss it. If they don't, this thread will eventually fade into obscurity
here on ATS and be forgotten. If they continue to bump it (as we are doing), then it will be obvious they are trolling for traffic still and should be
You can always hit that alert button and present you case to the mods about moving this thread to the hoax forum of course.
For all we know, the OP is simply very picky about what they post and want everything to be "just right", but allowed their enthusiasm to get the
better of them, and so they actually started a poor thread.
Wouldn't you rather hear the person out? Or would you rather be quick to judge them as a hoaxer when it might not be the case?
