I do believe I was in the right for originally posting a link to my blog instead of handing over my content to ATS... Why? Because, if I ever were
innocent but found to be in trouble, the media could use my "ghost" experience against me, and they can refer me as someone who has "ghostly
hallucinations". I now can't erase or take back what I posted on ATP, it's out of my hands. Anyone with money, can track my ATS post by e-mail and
Having your own blog allows full control of your content. As for as advertising, well, I have domain and hosting costs!
So, why don't I use free blogging software? Back in 2009, I had a "free" blog with over 10,000 posts. Then one day, out-of-the-blue, everything was
gone... No e-mail, nor explanation. To add insult to injury someone also stole my blog domain, that had a medium Google Page Rank.
I can't believe I'm still defending myself.
Domain and hosting costs? Seriously? You are running a blog not some web application that would require a dedicated server. Domain and hosting costs
for blogs is going to be rather cheap, in fact lets look at the costs from Namecheap where my work registered their domain name. It is only going to
cost like 10-15 bucks a year just to keep the domain registered to you, and then they also support web hosting. Their ultimate package on Namecheap
only costs $14 a month (10 if you do a full year subscription) for unlimited bandwidth, unlimited domains, and unlimited disk space for the sites.
You're not exactly breaking the bank with domain and hosting costs for a blog. I'm a web developer for a living and know what this stuff costs, if
you are paying a heck of a lot more than what I said above you are seriously getting ripped off.
Next, what does anyone having money have to do with someone tracking your IP address and posts on ATS? Their is no relation and anyone with actually
knowledge of how to do that stuff can do it absolutely free, no money needed. Also, for your other blog getting hijacked, sounds like you didn't take
necessary precautions for security, was the password to your account "password"?
I don't understand the meaning of your analogy either, what would you be innocent of that some thinks you are guilty about? It seems more like you
are concerned with your intellectual property and by posting it on ATS you wouldn't have the same rights to it as on your blog. Thus, if for some
reason any media outlet wanted to use your story you couldn't get paid for what was on ATS, however, you could charge for the rights of it being on
Lastly, if you want people to believe in audio recordings you need a lot of video evidence to back it up. If i sent you an audio recording of me
testing my mic and in the background someone was saying "Tefts....7 days.....Tefts.....7 days" would you believe it right away? I could say no one
was around even though I had someone standing 2 feet from behind me saying the Tefts 7 days part.
