VaTech Killer's Forum post is a FAKE

Hey everyone, I haven't been on here for a while, thought I'd take a break, a much needed break. Anyway, I've come back to help avoid a possible issue in regards to the VaTech killings.

Some newspapers, mainly Swedish, and some news sites are reporting that the killer had posted about his intentions before doing the killings. The message in question read:

"Hey /b/, I'm going to kill people at VTech today in the name of Anonymous"

(/b/ is the forum and it's anonymous posting, it's a running joke "Anonymous is Legion")

Here is a scan of the paper:

It's really big so I just linked it

I'm here to tell you it's not true, it was a poor joke made by one of the frequent posters. It was a photoshoped screen cap of a real posting. It's fake, 100%. Please do not attempt to go to the website or to talk to anyone on it. You will just be harassed, this isn't a threat, just a fact. The people on that site take pride in being the excretory sphincter of the internet and will be more than happy to prove it to you. They are the ones responsible for website raids like the one conducted against Hal Turner. ( I don't want that to happen to ATS)

My proof that the message is fake is obvious. First off the time stamp for all postings is a 6 number stamp, the printed post has only 5 numbers. Secondly, only response postings are pink, thread starting posts are a beige color.

I just wanted to nip that in the bud before someone on here finds out about it and we have a whole big argument over whether it's real or not.

Please, I implore, do not invite any of these people onto ATS.

Thank you!

Hmm, perhaps my preemptive debunking is a a bit too preemptive.

I'm not the only one who heard this story am I?

Your not the only one who read it.

Theres just not enough info to make a determination IMO.

Well, I'm glad I'm not the only one who heard this story lol

But IMO there is enough info and it is in fact a fake. The poster who did it said it was a fake, it wasn't the only one, just the only one the media picked up on. It's exactly the kind of humor the posters in that forum are into. It's 100% fake, the people on there love their photoshop gags. The rate of new posting is so fast that a post like that would've been lost forever in all of 15 minutes if it were before the killings.

It's fake, trust me on this. Anyone who knows me from ATS will know to trust me. I just know how ATS is and even if I had made a video of me hoaxing some UFO sighting there would still be those on here saying that the video is just a government ruse to confuse us into thinking the sighting was a fake.

The post in question is not real
