The thing that always gets me about this idea of having "shills" working on ATS is this:
Think about the amount of utter crap that is on this site, just stuff that is quite obviously total bollocks, why would they need disinfo agents, what are they going to do, post yet more pictures of Martian rocks?
I am sure that there is someone sitting in a office at the NSA who every now and then might have a little peek at what is being said on ATS and other conspiracy sites but nothing more.
I would think that they are more interested in social media sites than conspiracy sites.

Yes, granted, agreed, thank you. BUT WHO are they? And WHY? What is the motive? WHY lie to us?
Who's to say you aren't a shill yourself?
Question: To what extent are disinformation agents active on ATS?
To what extent are disinformation agents active on ATS?
Perhaps those NSA gumshoes want to know what we may know - or what we "think" we know?
Do you think they ever do anything more than just "take a peek' now and then? They don't post, i.e., 'disinform' -as a part of their job?

I think there is a certain arrogance to the question.
It assumes that you are so important, and so right, that there must be high up people out there trying to discredit you or somehow draw you out. It makes people feel better if they can claim the government (in whatever guise they think it takes) is paying people to disagree with them or make them look stupid, when usually they are pretty good at that themselves.
In the end it doesn't matter where the information comes from, whether someone was paid to post it or not, it's either true or it isn't.

I think it was just recently stated by the site owner on another thread that there are more gov bot than actual members at ATS. Now imagine those he doesn't know about.
