So is there any possibility that we'll see this implemented in the future? The anonymity has the potential to be abused by trolls, sure, but I feel like it'd be welcoming to any Washington or agency insider that felt like speaking out. We all know people from that circle are active on here. Or perhaps even some kind of whistle-blowing/leak submission system on Tor while ATS remains operating on clearnet.
Is there any way at all to make it work?

The moment you head toward that operational model, the Government will see ATS as an enemy to be silenced.
I for one think that is too much of a risk, especially while the people that run ATS live in the US.
Two things would happen. ATS would be shut down and our dear leaders would be thrown in jail.
Not an option.
Try Wikileaks! After they have published the data, we can discuss it in safety.

Well i believe ATS has a great deal of many influences that contributes to a better world.. As long as ATS fills it purpose it will probably be left alone.
Update 04/22/2016 - It may be the envy of surveillance agencies around the world, but proved to be a great embarrassment for its creator. It was one of the funniest moments for privacy advocates, and especially the Chinese people, when the creator (Fang Binxing) of The Great Firewall of China had to use a VPN to bypass his draconian creation.

TOR is not something that should be promoted anywhere. If people wanted to speak out, they could do so through the staff via email and the staff would have the ability to post that content here, without the need of a dark web. TOR is for shady operations, not people wanting to get to the truth of anything.
