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.
