Why Did I see a Homeland Security 'Seized ATS' Announcement Upon Logging In?

Aww I only got a screen full of dancing hamsters on my phone. No DHS message for me.

Seems to me that if Homeland Security really DID seize control of ATS...they'd WANT us to think it wasn't real.
Hmmmmm....devious.

I've gotten both. When I first logged in & out early this morning, I got the hamsters. But when I just logged in, I got the Homeland Security one. So maybe you'll get different ones each time you log in or out?

The Hoax screen was only up for a second or two for me, then faded to black, so I thought then that the FEDs whatever, were going to show us some cartoons...just to pass the time.

The Feds screen had me until the April Fools popup message.

I did ponder before then that perhaps ATS had touched a nerve and was taken down for being too close to the truth

Its not a joke you guys. Im posting from a FEMA camp in Fairbanks Alaska. Myself and a group of other detainees were able to overpower the guards and gain access to some sort of main control room. They actually had ATS up on a few monitors. I saw a lot of familiar avatars whom are apparently also "under investigation" for "domestic terrorism"? I'm scared.

Alarms going off now.....reinforcements converging on our location............tear gas!

It was nice knowing you guys

Saved a screenshot of this and called our I T guy. He has a jump drive with all the latest virus killing software.

After he worked on my unit for about ten minutes, I let him know it was a prank.

He didn't laugh very much, but I got an extra coffee break.

IAMTAT is right. I saw the message and thought, well it was only a matter of time.

inevitable.

as for me, I love my government...

Publicity seeking. I suppose those who are normally paranoid just had it ramped up.

Great idea... add the site seized page to the background splash pages!

Random paranoia all day long!

I LOLed. But, wait a min-ute?? What if the April Fools joke is not really a joke and "they" want us to think it's a joke, but, it's not, but, really, "they" are joking just to mess with us, or??

It did say April Fools at the end of the paragraph. Then if you waited it says April Fools.

Guess you had to read fast to get to the end.

I got the dancing chipmunks too. That one kinda freaked me out. Wasn't there a chipmunk virus a long, long time ago?
