What if ATS went down?

Imagine the day when ATS is not here any more. Are we prepared?

The reasons why this may happen are not my topic. Maybe that could make another interesting topic. Please feel free...

So I jump straight into the day that ATS isn't here any more and ask myself what should I have done in advance not to loose all the future discussions with you, the precious members of this forum.

I think we, the ATS members, are the best specialist to answer this question; to reveal new aspects that no single individual may have imagined alone. Here some ideas that I can think right away:


Lot of good friends lost. Many of them just known by the pseudonym but real by heart. How do we meet again in cyberwar environment where everybody is constantly under surveillance and attempt to contact each other may be life threatening. Hostile environment where anybody can be an agent or sell his soul to the state.

- Do we have (secret) signs how to know each other?
- Internet may be compromised. Is there alternative channels?

Past discussions

The past discussions are lost forever. No search engine dares to guide to alternative sites.

- Someone must have made a copy but how to reach it.

Future discussions

A lot of enthusiasm occurs to provide similar services. Multiple sites emerge.

- How do we distinguish the real thing from faked ones.

Present day

Does the site owner have the data and service available, at least in short notice, in various cultural environments? The political environment is our biggest thread.

- This site should be saved in at least three different cultural environments: America, Russia and China.

I'd continue my daily search for beer cans along the river and turn them in for beer money.

I'd miss it, but I'd probably be a lot more productive

I'd have to start listening to the voices in my head again.

(they come from Mexico).

... or I could read a book.

I had similar thoughts back in the days... lets say 5 years ago, only as a reader of ATS. Yet back there I had the tendency to fall in some common traps, we are lured in. Now , as I claimed my full freedom few years ago, don't care too much if ATS falls down or somebody kills otherbody. It is purely not my business. I satisfy myself serving drinks. And in that manner I hope I can serve you one too, so you claim your freedom like me. If this wish applies to you, follow Here and drink for free.

We should all get each other's addresses and become pen pals.

Welcome to ATS forums. An answer to your thread title name. Get ready for America's Second Revolution.

I would go to reddit/r/abovetopsecret or ATS or whatever it is to see if ATS is still a thing
