Struggling to find the best forum for this, to be honest.

I would like to ask a question, and I think it's best aimed at forum mods and real old timers of ATS.

Have you ever been asked/told/advised to take a thread down for any reason? Perhaps the topic and contents reach too close to home for TPTB/POTUS/NWO... or are you so independent that, even if that happened, you'd have/let posts carry on regardless?

Are we monitored here by those aforementioned groups? Can we expect a knock on our front doors if we post something that upsets the "ruling class"?

Personally, I think they are all a bunch of tossers but I'm quote interested in ATS's thoughts.

Any thread that violates T&C will get taken down without your consent (no questions asked ). You agree to that when using the site.

With that said. No i have never been asked . however I have had members request that i stop posting in they're threads .

Sorry, I should have been clearer - it wasn't a question of against T&C's, more like the alphabet agencies forced a thread delete... if you catch my drift.

i doubt the TPTB (i really hate that term) have ever had any influence on this site.
90% of binned threads i suspect are due to t&c's regarding some kind of vulgarity, the other 10% maybe for not wanting to be associated with certain things and alienating potential ad revenue.
all of which i think is quite fair.

Only the site management could answer this one, because only they could receive and act on the request.

Oh alright, maybe my comprehension of your OP was a bit off.

I can't say that i have ever experienced that.

If somone has I hope they will come forward or bring it to the staff's attention.

Oh just saw your clarification.

Don't think the alphabet agencies are forcing threads to poof.
Though, every once in a while Augustus will spill the beans of the super secret Illuminati plans tho.

That's not what he is asking, it sounds like he is wondering if abc groups have asked for threads to be removed.


Nvm seen that you edited your reply

If you think they don't have an online presence, you haven't been paying attention to the world around you.
Additionally a thread doesn't need to be pulled when it can be trolled to death.

Fwiw i have seen a couple threads that disappeared that i thpught was strange.

One was not to long ago about the viral so called mysterious video that suppose to have a bunch of codes embeded within the song, background images and hidden torture scenes. Reddit has the thread open. I think its a hoax but for what ever reason it was made to disappear versus thrown in the hoax bin.

The other one was something along the lines where religion and GOD were actually evil and Satan associated versus the traditional view of GOD.

However the house always win so not sure what you are hoping to get out of this?

Personally i would i would prefer the threads locked and moved to an area not available to be seen by non members but this aint my house , Im just a guest.

I have witnessed new posted threads vanish without a trace that did ask legitimate questions about happenings within a time frame .....sure , this pace is watched ...imo

I've been preemptively restricted from discussing a certain topic due to the nature of my work. Its been made very clear that "resources being applied" to monitoring of my non-work related online activity is a "strong possibility".

Nothing as nefarious as you are suggesting though OP. If a third party ever tried to shut me up on here I would have to get all Jason Bourne on them. And I would hope most others here would do the same.

Certain forums here have gotten the attention of three letter agencies that monitor that sort of stuff - ie Aviation Forum. From what I understand if the Feds don't like something you posted to the point they want it gone. They'll call you directly and yell at you. Or at least that has happened to a member in that previously mentioned forum. But that instance was because he posted something classified.

The mods close threads that will likely attract too many "haters", most threads can be moved as the OP already understands.
ATS does a pretty good job of flying below the radar so we don't end up the target of any MSM snipe hunts looking for radical extremists.
