Seems to be all posts by the "Anonymous" user. I haven't seen once since I added him/it to my ignore list.

What you are seeing are fake images issued by us, in an effort to deceive the public. The mars you know, in fact, the universe as understood by the majority of the population is a complete hoax. There are things out there that no one should know about, and thus we keep everything hidden. It is better that no one know about these things. In fact, valid proof of this is seen
Anonymous Threads and Posts at rATS
What would it take to give rATS members the ability to start threads and post here anonymously?
Would you be more inclined to share at rATS if there were assurances of anonymity, with regard to what you say?
Would big brother even allow ATS such?
What if it was still "moderated"... just without screen names?

We are already anonymous. I make a post such as this one, you don't know who I am, or where I live. Unless I make the information available, we will always be anonymous here.
About being more inclined about posting here, members probably think that they can not post quality threads up to the standards of RATS, and only read the posts. At least, that's what I do.

But I know ....???......... just posted that...
And if what you just said was colorfully RATS it would color what I think of hexidecimal on the main board.
let me take a quote from another RATS thread:
"My current mode of thinking is that if i have something that contraversial or secret, the best thing to do is not tell anyone on the internet, and certainly don't post it anywhere. I've always worked that way in life, if you don't want to risk your information falling into the wrong hands, keep your mouth shut! Thing is, that's not going to get the truth out to those who can handle it best though is it?"
What if you want rATS to know... but you don't want to be known as the one that spilled the beans?
Also... to moderation... what if one were to wish to teach rATS how to make crack rock?
would you allow discussion of the means to produce such here?
not that sharing grandma's recipe is my intent... but I am curious where the boundaries occur in this forum...
I just bought in and based on what I have read so far in this forum, I think a little extra anonymity at rATS would light a fire in the discussion.
Perhaps just an anonymous post with a post number?

And why on earth would anyone want to do that anyway on a conspiracy theory board?
perhaps there is something special about the experience... a grand conspiracy only seen through the shaking eyes of a twitching crackhead... and only understandable through a tale he tells which takes place in a crack den with crack whores.
What if you don't want to be known as the resident crackhead... but have a bit of crackheaded wisdom to share?
you have heard of the phenomenon of "burning your bulb a little brighter" ?
the pop connotation is that it burns out faster... you die young.
the occult connotion is that you see more, and faster than those around you... hocus pocus to you.
not to dwell on the drug aspect though... what about discussion of effective means of disrupting police or military? what about disucussion of effective means of staging a coup? cheating on exams, conspiring senior pranks?
How does one design computer viruses? There are men conspiring to inundate your computer right now with viruses.... and we're not allowed to touch hacking on the main board.
Where is the line? How does one deny ignorance if there is a line?
Or is there some other "more secret" place I am not privy to on the net where one is truly free to speak there mind anonymously and all the dirty secrets are laid bare?
Judge Learned Hand
"Right knows no boundaries and justice no frontiers"
Judge Hand affirmed that if a citizen “stops short of urging upon others that it is their duty or their interest to resist the law,” then he or she is protected by the First Amendment. One may, for example, “admire” resistors of the draft, but may not, under the “incitement” test, “counsel or advice” someone to violate the law at a specific time and place.

Would you read an anonymous thread on avoiding arrest?
Would you post one?
How does one destroy the dubia tower?
How does one destroy the great gorges dam?
How does one kerplunk the west antartic ice sheet into the sea once and for all?
Or are we not allowed to talk about that here?
Or are we simply not allowed to say one "should" destroy and kerplunk?

I think he was just using it as a metaphor, for things that might be off color, or that someone might want to be anonymous for posting.
Glad to see you spinning in the same direction. I am wondering what some off-color screen-name-free anonymous-posting on rATS-subject-matter by "bought in members" would sound like.
How do you jack a car? Skip the toll booth? Chop shop it... Sea container to Malaysia...
How can you have truly effective discussion of conspiracy without intimate (anonymous) discussion of crime?
"Without detail, I can be a treasure trove of dubious info.
I hesitate and resist the urge to share online not only because of our terms, but due to the fact that you will NEVER be 100% anonomous online. If you become a person of 'interest' online, rest assured your interests will be noted. On other sites I tread very near the line but I am mindful and choose what to say out loud. I would enjoy sharing ideas, but really, can you ever be sure of the person you are sharing with? RATS is by no means a safe haven to openly discuss things of this nature. As much as it bothers me, I actually see our terms as a means to protect us as well as the site. Besides, I would feel pretty bad if someone got locked up due to a conversation I may have joined."
How does one discuss how the state controls red phosphorus without discussing how one illegally obtains such and how and what one ultimately illegally manufactures with it?
How does one come to understand (deny ignorance as to) why something should or should not be illegal if they cannot discuss how it is produced and distributed and they cannot discuss what it feels like to need more; be it coc aine or the rush of another theft.
How does one come to understand (deny ignorance) as to why they may not want to take "a hit" if they cannot hear the pathos, ethos, and logos of a recovered junky and his personal experience?
How does one change their mind (come to understand) (deny ignorance) as to why some supposedly illegal substance should be legalized... if they cannot hear from those who have had positive-personal life-changing experiences with said substance?
It is all in what YOU call it...
Is it a clandestine manual for the manufacture of illicit drugs to be used by terrorist to undermine the nation?
Or is it a collection of human knowledge in organic chemistry?
Is it data that can be used to corner and capture illicit drug manufacturers?
it is at its very core... data. nothing more. 1's and 0's
Someone Who Isn't Me wishes to stage a "smoke in" at our city park. What does swim need to be cautious of?

Does the precedence we set today conspire to develop or destroy this grand thing we call civilization? Should it be further developed, or should it be recast? How far from lawful may legal stray before the masses find that the righteous thing to do is behave illegally? Are they already behaving so in masse? Am I a criminal for asking? Or at least, so implying the possibility?
Why is it what I say to you must be tagged to me?
What is privacy?
What happened to the message in the bottle?
Why in the digital age have we let the very idea of such seem criminal and all but impossible?
Does it have to be that way?
Are we indeed all so worried about who said what?
I might be controversially and, almost, but definitely not, anonymously...
