I dont think ATS is any more than what it seems to be....
As have been said earlier, the content on ATS is user generated, and as such, we the users are responsible for what we post on here.
SO, Springer and Simon probably have their own conclusion and feelings about much that we, the users post on here, but what i have seen during my
short time here is that they do not actively participate to influence threads in one way or other.
I dont think that any government that is interested in spreading disinformation on here would contact the owners of this place to be allowed to do,
either by bribing them or threathing them.
They would just register users accounts, and use them freely to spread any information they want.
And by so contributing to this place, perhaps not in the way we would want the government to do so.
Could ATS be sharing disinformation? Yes, very probable, since all information on here is user generated.
Do the owners of this site have their own agenda? Ofcourse, they want to make money, to keep this place alive and to be able to generate other sources
for us users here to use.
I have to thank the people behind this place, the mods, SME's, CM's, And the owners for creating this great place for us, and also that they make it
work as smoothly as it does!
Thank you very much, keep up the good work!
