"We Are Opposed To Cunning And Deceit"
the disinformation campaign performed by the British government to quell
public interest in crop circles in 1990, the formations continued to
appear throughout southern England in greater numbers, larger dimensions
and intricate designs.
It was the summer of 1991
when serious contamination of formations began to take place. Some of
the hoaxing was done by pranksters looking for attention, some by mischief
makers. But, more sinisterly, it was also carried out by known government
infiltrators who purposely added man-made features to genuine formations
in a attempt to throw the researchers into total confusion. At the height
of the hoaxing, an American tourist etched out huge letters on the side
of a hill, 'Talk to us'. A reply came back a few days later when a most
bizarre-looking formation resembling Hebrew script appeared at Milk
Hill. Thought to be a hoax at first but since confirmed to be genuine,
it was deciphered as a form of post-Augustan Latin and etched in Freemasonic
script, creating two words: APPONO ASTOS "We are opposed to
cunning and deceit." How appropriate given the circumstances. To
this day this formation represents the closest the Circlemakers have
come to communicating in recognizable script.
