Psychology Of The (Drone) Hoax

A, “Playful” account of one persons rather insightful perception of the Drone hoax was posted on Fortunecity a couple of months ago. *Dronies* may recall that Fortunecity is the same website where Isaac first unleashed his pseudo-scientific psycho-babble driven drivel onto a (suspecting) world.

It wasn't publicised or heavily linked to but rather was a testament of one persons feelings about all things Drone-related and more precisely why it was obviously a hoax.

Well a couple of weeks ago the web-hosts Fortunecity received a takedown notice threatening legal action if it remained, of course a brief exchange of emails ensued so the specifics of the claim could be learned. It quickly transpired that the claim was regarding actions that occurred prior to the article being posted and actually wasn't a direct consequence of what was actually contained in the article itself.

That's not really the interesting part; the more interesting part was what was contained in one of the emails that were sent by Fortunecity regarding the takedown, which read as follows:

We did not see what could be considered defamatory either, but we were threatened with legal action if we did [not] remove the content.

P.S. it is *definitely* a hoax, and Linda Moulton Howe has made a fool of herself again.

It appears that people with no real interest in the Drone Hoax are still well aware of the finer details along with the implications and the main, “Players.” And of course more importantly that the entire debacle was nothing but an orchestrated hoax, one which is STILL being perpetuated by people who SHOULD know better.

"Those who cannot remember the past are destined to repeat it...."

Anyway, I've hosted the text for a while now, so the “Psychology Of A Hoax” article may be viewed here.

"The discovery of truth is prevented more effectively not by the false appearance of things present and which mislead into error, not directly by weakness of the reasoning powers, but by preconceived opinion, by prejudice." - Schopenhauer
