Does this mean everyone should limit their visitation to this site?! 'Cause this is creeping me out! If what you say is in fact so, then we may all
be expecting some kind of visit like this soon! I mean, isn't there those who have been on this site for a couple of years? Wouldn't they have
reported some gritty topic like this by now?
Like your Avatar...
People here, swarm left and right with accusations. The government doesn't sit in a room and read all of our stories and comments. But a general
computer system is in place, where it filters through a massive amount of info on this site, to a certain degree it might even build a limited profile
of some of you. It picks up on certain words and it starts following it, linking people to it and if a handle comes up too often, it sets off an
alarm. Once the alarm is sat off, it's then printed, cleared up so it makes sense to those who'll give the order to gather real life info on a
person. This takes some time.
There is a BIGGER risk of the members here being malicious, vengeful or simply mean and would report someone on this site to the local office to keep
an eye out for them. This is usually how it would sound "Hello, My name is Such and Such, I live in such and such (they don't lie because, they
think by being honest they'll get off of the list.) Then they say that you've been surfing the web and woops, found a site with interesting topics.
Then they say, I love Sci Fi so when I saw UFO I thought it was nice Movie site, so I joined up. TO my surprise I realized that some (here come the
magic word) UNAMERICAN activities are taking place, I find it disturbing and possibly threatening to our national security if terrorists are looking
to find out more about the US.
At this point the office would say, do you have someone that you know is posting such things? He'd say, yes... I believe his handle is something umm
Icebreaker or something... let me check... yes it's icebreaker. I hope 'we' (now he thinks he's apart of the team) caught him in time. Then they
say goodbye the ATS member feels good about him self for getting back at someone who he doesn't like OR is paranoid about.
But here's the truth...
The conversation is recorded and the first thing that happens is that the office looks at the CALLER'S ID and profile which is made right then and
there if isn't done before. Once that is done and they feel he's not a kook, they'll check out the person in question, take a look, log on, look
through the posts he's made and then... filter through.
If it comes out POSITIVE, they interact with them first (phantom user who asks questions and sees if they might know something or not. If they don't
then it's closed, life goes on but the Caller's profile is still in the database. IF however it's POSITIVE and they can trace some vital info to
this member, they'll start building the real life profile and ultimately catch him and make sure this won't happen again.
So are there ACTIVELY agents on this site? Umm... let's just say maybe... but then I can add... it's only for they amusements sake.
So... don't let this worry you. Just don't pretend to be something you're not cause that will certainly put the loop on you.
