While not wanting to incite or inflame matters much further. I believe it would be a generous public service if ATS were to announce in the manner of
a press-release or the like, the information you ave compiled.
It is shameful that political organizations and 'movements' adopt tools of propaganda and marketeering to disrupt or otherwise confound those who's
stated agenda is the denial of ignorance, or the pursuit of political truth.
I for one would have selected such an article for the creation of a thread within our community.
It rises to the level of revealing the nature of those in closest control of the political environment. It is this offensive practice that diminishes
the value of the political system we have in place today. Were we so inclined, I would say we might even have the makings of a class-action civil
suit. Not only did you, and almost all members of our community NOT invite this kind of content, we specifically rejected it. More than one effort
from the membership layer tried to organize a cohesive response to its presences, and you, the management have explicitly directed the implementation
of policy to remove it from our midst.
Now it would seem, that even after that effort became highlighted, the perpetrators have systematically engaged in corrupting the exchange of ideas in
our 'community.' (I know this is 'your property' and as such this is your domain to control and regulate, but you have also been kind enough to
allow us, the common users to accept a sense of ownership.)
I would consider this action carefully, as the perpetrators have engaged in what can very reasonably be called 'an attack' on the fabric of our
little chunk of cyberspace, by boldly ignoring and corrupting the entire purpose
of the 'gathering of minds'.
While these perpetrators are no doubt aware of their 'outed' status, they are nevertheless facing no consequences for their actions, which they will
feebly try to defend as 'free speech' no doubt. If it were within my rights to do so, I would offer to take the case myself.
We all share water from the same well, and they are blithely poisoning it.
Perhaps a revealing press release will offer enough potential embarrassment to the perpetrators to keep them from ever thinking they can get away with
this again. At least it will let others know that ATS is no den of victims, waiting to be exploited.
Sorry if I have overstepped my bounds.
