They would have to have a two tier system, free users and premium users or content would go right down as would readers many of whom visit as
For content producers whom want to air there content it is and idea that is both good and bad, the upside is that they would have a more exclusive
forum but the downside is that less content would then be posted.
Let's be fair the problem is the likes of Google and other search engines that seemed to have declared war upon sites like ATS under the false banner
of fighting fake news.
ATS need's revenue and advertising is the only viable solution, how to implement it AND how to recover ATS rightful place at the heart of the search
engines that seem to have moved it down in there search results deliberately having wrongly listed the site alongside fake news providers etc.
And add to that the fake Anonymous video some time back that was probably really produced by and from ...like productions or one of the other crazy
sites that HATE ATS because many of there members were banned for breaking various rules or from there actual members that were banned from the
Also remember a lot of people that use the site do not have two spare pennies to rub together, the community is a vast one.
Either way if ATS goes down it is going to be a great loss of information and a further degradation of the internet leaving only scummy pond sites

this especially if they do not like the company that is looking to purchase it may nevertheless end up being one of the only way's to save that
information should the site go down.
