Is it possible that many things that Adam left behind were merely red herrings or false statements to throw people off from understanding him? What if the hard drive he destroyed had nothing important on it and he only destroyed it to make people think there was some deplorable stuff on there when it could've just been something as innocent as My Little Pony fan art and he was embarrassed that people might see it. Thoughts?

The question is what do you think he might have been misleading people on? His statements seem pretty consistent (at least under the "Smiggles" handle) that it's hard for me to consider what, if any, was misdirection.

I will agree though, that the possibility of him smashing his hard drive might've been because he was embarrassed and didn't want others to see what he'd been posting or looking at.

Guess I’ll just copy/paste my reddit comments on this exact topic from a month ago lol (I hate reddit btw Laughing).

Quote :
He’s neither the first nor the last mass shooter to destroy his hard drive or get rid of his personal data by any other means. Dylan Klebold, Vlad Roslyakov, Stephen Paddock, Cho Seung-Hui, Steven Kazmierczak and probably many others I’m not aware of did the same. Honestly, I don’t think they all had to hide something particularly incriminating or embarrassing, most likely it was just personal stuff they didn’t want people to pry into. I’m still curious about what was on Adam’s smashed hard drive, but chances are it was nothing worse than what has been recovered.

Quote :
Realistically, I think it was just some more essays, movies, pictures of firearms, etc. Maybe also some bad drawings like the one he tried to delete from 2draw. If I were a conspiracy theorist, I’d say that the investigators have actually recovered the contents of his smashed hard drive and it turned out to be something so terrifying that the general public should never know about it. But I’m not a conspiracy theorist and not planning to become one, at least for now.

As for child porn being or not being there, maybe it wasn’t, but I don’t believe Adam never saw any child porn in his entire life. Even if he was as asexual as he claimed to be, given his obsessive interest in the topic of pedophilia he must have seen it at least once out of curiosity.

Quote :
Mass shooters destroying their personal data was a repeatedly discussed topic on the old Columbine forum that Adam frequented, so it actually might have been true that he smashed a blank hard drive just to leave people wondering what was on there.

Why, thanks. Embarassed

I browse r/masskillers semi-regularly for info I may otherwise miss, but the comments can be a cesspool at times. Especially as of late with the increased number of subscribers (read: the influx of the general reddit populace that loves to make everything about their favorite flavor of politics while not having anything to say about the mass killers themselves apart from “evil pos”/“burn in hell”). r/Columbine is better, but my interest in Columbine, as opposed to some other mass shootings, is occasional rather than constant.

Also I apologize since I’m pretty sure you haven’t made this thread for the purpose of complaining about reddit. ;D

I think some of the things he said people have read too much into, like the castration thing which I still see people bring up sometimes. I wouldn't be surprised if he smashed the hard drive just to mess with people, since he would have been fully aware about the mystique that would create as it has with other shooters. It could have been embarassment too, some people say there's no reason he would feel embarassed about anything considering what he was about to do, but embarassment doesn't really work like that and he may well have fixated on how certain things on there might have been perceived and blown it out of proportion.

No problem at all, I too share the same criticisms of r/masskillers as it's more of a moral circle jerk to see who is a more ethical "researcher" rather than actually making productive efforts to understand the subject matter, most of the users come off as very childish. But hey, that's just reddit in general I guess.
I browse r/masskillers only to see new information on shooters or to see any updates on recent shootings. I also occasionally post something if I think that it is interesting and relevant to the sub. I don't really go into the comments for many of the same reasons that have already been said but occasionally a good comment can pop up which I find interesting.

Well, the castration joke made sense considering that Adam expressed disgust with society’s fixation with sex. I’m not sure if I want to know what else could be possibly said about it... Roll

Idk I've seen people think he was being 100% serious about it. Maybe because they don't realise he could be quite jokey/sarcastic, and it would just emphasise him being 'weird'.

Ah, I’ve seen it too but I’ve always been pretty sure those people are trolling.
