I've been an active member on ATS for a good 5+ years, and I "lurked" even longer than that... I must say, Sandyhook was the first censored topic I ever saw here, and then Pizzagate seemed to go to an extreme level of censorship... Like everything being funneled to one thread??? Makes little sense to me.... But it does seem the site is scared of outside pressure and has made some concessions along the way... I wish it wasn't this way, but ATS is a business and I guess they need to protect their "product", which is ATS...

To be fair , in all probability they perhaps made up the part about "conversations with outlet operators" ...


What I Learned From the “PropOrNot” Propaganda List

This is a follow-up to the thread linked below.

ATS made the list. We are somebody now

There has been an update:


Removed following constructive conversations with outlet operators: aanirfan.blogspot.co.uk, abovetopsecret.com, counterpunch.org, nutritionfacts.org, russia-direct.org

SOURCE


I wonder what was discussed during the "constructive conversation" mentioned above. Since all of this is lunacy to me, I have no clue.
Maybe pizza gate being outlawed on here? Good sleuthing.

Well I guess the censorship of a certain topic all makes sense now.
ATS has sold its soul

Considering what this site is and who is considered "real news" we should have worn being on that list like a badge of honour
Yeah I'm questioning this place a little.

Right? I guess this kind of throws a wrench in Majic's explanatory thread about the blatant censorship of PG threads and discussion. So much for the "outside influence is not at play but you tin-foilers will never believe that" narrative.

I'm with Iknowstuff. I thought being on that list was pretty good PR in this "up is down" media climate.

If the elitist-Globalist Alt-Left establishment feel ATS is a threat worthy of being falsely labelled "FAKE NEWS' and 'RUSSIAN PROPAGANDA'...then we've come to the right place.

Know Us By Our Enemies.

I think this has to do with restricting all the members here from posting threads about Pizza gate. Conveniently soon after they ban that topic, now they get removed from the Russian propaganda list.

I guess PC won again since only PC conspiracy theories are allowed on ATS now. ATS staff got strong-armed on how to run their own damn site. Kind of pathetic and weak if you ask me.

Make sure you start a thread in Board Business & Questions making sure your new conspiracy theories are PC enough for ATS in the future. Now the liberals can always come here for a safe place.

Its almost like whatever outside influence/pressure ATS is feeling has them funneling all this pizzagate chatter into one thread so it can easily be monitored by ATS (and whatever alphabet agencies we know lurks/shills here)...

So, you don't have a reasonable response.

As far as a certain thread being removed, a great effort was made by several mods as well as the owner explaining in detail why it was done. And I agree with that action.

If and when Federal and / or State Law Enforcement produce some factual information on this subject, you can bet there will be many threads of discussion.

Now, as far as the establishment that I know, its called the Constitution Of the United States of American.
If you got a problem with that........oh well.

Presently DJT is the president elect and if he is sworn in on 20 January, 2017 so be it.
If something different happens..............same answer.

IMPO I think some of you guys are just butthurt.

More than forty years ago I swore a oath and will continue to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.

What you do, is your business.

Come now. You and I both know that when people refer to "the establishment," they are not referring to the Constitution. They are referring to an elite or oligarchy that seems to control media, politicians, the military, etc.

Second, all manners of controversial and possibly slanderous topics are discussed on here. It's a conspiracy site.. There is no reason that one should be singled out. If slander or defamation was really a concern, or a lack of concrete evidence, a majority of threads on here would pose a problem...

Why are "the government and Bush did 911" threads allowed, true or not, but not the currently banned topic? I'd argue that the former is just as slanderous or worse..

If ATS was listed as Russian Propaganda, then please tell me what we should call sites like the NY Times, that are blatantly a propaganda medium for the "establishment"???

How about policing yourselves a bit more so you avoid groupthink. Force yourselves to spend more, MORE time outside your comfort zone, challenging your own beliefs, assumptions, etc. Save a compartment of your mind and put it outside your echo chamber; that can stand outside your web of theories and scoff at it. Pick it apart. For starters. Sheesh. You guys are really radicalizing yourselves. Do you know that?

But that's why a lot of us come here. The echo chamber in my personal life is 95% mainline social justice, Democrat, Clinton, liberal. As in, most of my friends, colleagues, etc. I come here to hear other views.

We call them "fake news".

I mean, damn, I've been here since Fukushima and this place has lent more truth to subjects than all of those narrative pushers combined.

I'm so confused.

You guys were pissed when they put us on the list and now you're pissed that they took us off?


I understand your confusion.

We all talk about denying ignorance, so let's put our thinking caps on for a second. It doesn't matter if it is covered in tin foil or not, those days are long gone from when tin foil may have been effective.

We all know the pieces that are used in the playing of the game, we just don't know where they have been placed on the board. I have been sharing what I could, for about a week now, that the dominoes were about to fall. I can only share so much, as many others on ATS, and other sites are limited in what they can share. It should be crystal clear now as to why.

Everything you need to know is right in front of your face. You need to stop being lazy, stop being trusting, stop being gullible, and stop being so damn predictable.

Think about this for one second; why would it make one whit of difference what Propornot has to say? Propornot only has the power that we the users of the internet allow it to have. If we can ignore and label other websites as ridiculous, hoaxers, Sorcha Faal, and not worth our time of day, then why did so many forums fall into goose step when they posted their filtering list?

Your eyes are open. Now look and see what lies in front of your face.

According to the waybackmachine, ATS was removed from the list on November 30. IOW, ATS was listed on the November 29th captures, but removed on the December 1st capture.

So, perhaps it doesn't have anything to do with PG...

Rather more important than the business, at least on the eyes of the user base, is the community that ATS has at its core. Without ATS the website, ATS as a body of people loses cohesion and congregation space. The community and the space it operates in are worth protecting the continuity of.

This place has been a resource for alternative thought for a long time by regular standards, and a bloody AGE by the standards of the internet. I can well understand why those in control of the site would wish to see that community and that resource protected. I certainly want it protected. If that means coming up with better ways to mitigate hack attempts, DDoS attacks and so on, OR legal challenges which might be ranged against it, then that is what it means.

Would I rather find anyone who threatens the long term survival of this website, and batter them into a smear against the pavement with a solid steel ingot? You bet I would. Is that a practical and effective solution? No.

Putin worked very hard to get us ON the list.

Bye bye vodka, hello mind control kool aid

If you have even the slightest reading comprehension abilities you can clearly see that we were added to that "list" (compiled by anonymous "experts" who still won't identify themselves) and removed from the said "list" prior to any staff action regarding "pizzagate." As stated very publicly the conversation with said "experts" was that we were keeping all options on the table.

Anyone who can't deal in the simple linear flow of time and events should probably take some time and reevaluate their priorities.

This thread it closed because I think we've had enough insults directed at our staff. This # is getting old.
