I really doubt the government feels any kind of threat from ATS.

We haven't exactly disclosed anything major here. We debunk shoddy youtube videos, we speculate about secret societies and we generally bash Bush until he is pink but those things don't equate with a threat to national security.

Until something of genuine weight is leaked onto ATS i really think we have nothing to worry about.

If they are zeroing in on us, then they must know:

That we are good patriots concerned with world events.
That we are good patriots concerned with the truth.
That we are good patriots concerned with where our president Bush is taking us.
That what WERE at one time conspiracies, are no longer that, and is the solid truth.

For the most part this is an information site, forget conspiracies! We, the citizens are not the ones ruining this country. No siR.

If we are not, then WHO IS?

That is probably what they count on.
They have infiltrated peace groups just to see what was going on and all they did was bake cookies...what makes you think a site that caters to conspiracy theories would be out of bounds?

We haven't exactly disclosed anything major here.

It doesn't matter. It isn't about what you know it is what you could know but the greater importance is placed on control. Control of a venue that could provide a platform for someone that does know something or someone that could touch on something. It also is a way to put your finger to the pulse of a certain segment of the population.

I have no doubt that someone monitors sites like this.

If you think it is far-fetched do a little research into the monitoring habits of our North American government on its citizens from the 60's till present time.

You may be surprised at what they deem "watch worthy".

Well this is still America. Sort of. The land of the free. If you can't bake the president here and his unarmed service avoiding cohorts here where can you? Oh wait a minute. Cheney went quail hunting. Ok, non combat service avoiding cohorts that see no problem in sending off our armed forces into battle on sexed up intel.
Oh, and there was that little thing about the Constitution being a danged piece of paper. Hope he didn't wipe with it.

As you may know, there are guys that sit in a room all day and monitor news networks, blogs, websites, etc. looking for any kind of trace of a terriost attack.

Also, there are guys on the domestic side that lurk around the internet monitoring sites like ATS just looking for any kind of uprising, threats, etc. A lot of people on ATS believe that if you write something, black suits are going to immediately knock on your door. No, this does not happen. First and foremost your name and all the information surrounding your post, blog, etc are put into a database and is tagged with a threat level. If your threat level is high enough then your files moves up the chain and a senior analyst takes over.

Actually people who monitor these sites are not even special agents, just analysts. If your threat is severe enough then you are looked at a little more. But again, agents are not just going to come kicking down your door. These guys are good. They are going to look at your previous posts, read a little about you on your bio. So in essence, if you are always talking about how you love Bush and love his administration and then rant one of his policies, you are not going to be looked at. But, if all of your posts deal with anti-Bush then you best believe you are tagged.

Then there is more to it than that. Then of course you have your analysts that are going to post like a normal person and ask you certain questions. Not directly though, but indirectly. They will agree with you and gain your confidence and they might ask: Man, wouldn't it be nice if Bush was taken out. If you agree, you have answered his question. But, the whole time you are thinking this person is just Joe Blow off the street, but, this person is actually an analysts that is inputting all of this information into a database.

I will use ATS as an example. An analyst spends years on ATS gaining its trust and becoming a contributing member. This person will post like he disagrees with the government and all the good stuff, but, this is just a front, to gain confidence and not be seen as working for the other side. This person will have a lot of points and maybe a few credentials, like a moderator. Most people, would believe that the site owners are in on this, but no, this person will just start like a regular member and no one else knows the real intent of this person, but the analyst.

People worry about people who sign up the day before and start disagreeing with them and they say they are a disinfo agent. But, I would more worry about seasoned members, than someone who signed up yesterday; these guys are trained by the best.

Just trying to shed some light on the intelligence community.

It seems you are trying to scare us... Personaly i hate george bush and the government "oh no im tagged!" So the government are actually that pathetic as to go to websites to look for possible threats. (not terrorism, i understand why for that) But comon! Analysts...

I don't agree at all with the black suit theory. They wouldn't do anything of the sort. If they wanted to question you they would do it without hesitation, no slightly leading the person on... The thing is you think you know the government but however much you think you know another suprise pops up.
There is so much we do not know about the government and we know alot!

Take it from me. The government is far more dark and sinister than we think...

Beware of u2u's and some trying to 'get to know you better"

Once we had someone here who as i recall, did contact the FBI about another member.

Anyone remember that? It seemed true at the time.

They're out there!!!!

The government doesn't just sit and watch ATS, no. But, there are analysts who lurk the internet searching out threats, terriostic activity, etc. If they feel it is significant then they will join the site posing as a regular member, just to gain more intel.

And a good job too. We pay them to keep us safe.

The real problem starts where surreptitious activity pertains more to twisting facts that relate to issues of legitimate debate.

That's the issue being discussed here.

I believe you're right. CNN did a story on this. The "agents", at least in the portion I watched, were regular housewives, doing it for a hobby, this is what they spent their time doing. I think they did this on a volunteer basis (not sure). It showed them sitting at their computers at home, reading messageboards and watching conversations. I don't recall if they contributed to the conversations. or struck up friendships with members. These women were described as "obsessed", spending all their free time doing this, done out of the love of their country they said.

Good for them. I'll keep saying whatever the hell I want, they can file it and send it up the ladder to their mothers rear end for all I care.

Seriously, I wouldn't hesitate to wipe out bush and his band of crooks if given the opportunity.

If you don't believe analysts are on this site, you are mistaken. They hire analysts to do just this. Their whole job is just to monitor sites and report. These are not agents, just guys who do nothing more but sit on the computer all day, just like secret service agents just sit on the computer all day looking for fraud. If you don't know the intelligence community you cannot dismiss this as inaccurate.

[edit on 25-5-2008 by jhill76]

Could you elaborate why you are so familiar with all of this?

posted on May, 26 2008 @ 08:48 AM
I think some issues are definitely more "sensitive" than others. Classified technologies, real Contact with ETs, life/artifacts on the Moon and Mars, whistleblowers and deep insiders, pedophile and satanic human-sacrifice cults, things like that.

Start doing too much digging and making too much noise about sensitive/"national security" issues, and enjoy the super-fun psychological warfare, courtesy of "them".

But don't take my word for it, or anyone else's word - by all means, test it out for yourself!

It seems this thread is pointing out the obvious and a topic that is repeated every year on ATS. Warnings of "they are watching" are nothing new on ATS and someone will make the exact same thread next year.

When you apply some logic to this subject you will understand why forums like this are monitored. On ATS in the past; we've seen idoits who have planned armed rebellion and even called for assassination of federal agents. When you read posts like those one cannot be shocked the intelligence community watch this place.

And, to the OP, if you think ATS is assigned a threat level then you are far off the mark and scaremongering. There is nothing on this site that has triggered major national security concerns and ATS would be shut down if it did.

Time and time again, I have seen many posters twist the words in the opening thread. I have said that no black suits don't come kicking down your door, that doesn't happen. Also, I never said ATS is tagged. I said individual posters are looked at, but again, these people can tell if you are serious or not, they are not going to tag your file if you just say I hate Bush, no. It has to be on a serious level.

ALSO, I used ATS as an EXAMPLE, because we are most familiar with. An EXAMPLE.

It seems to me that you are not familiar with domestic spying on citizens. I suggest you google it to find out more. Also, I never said the black suits are coming, please re-read the original post.
