Ok, we've had the whole ATS=COINTELPRO thing for a long time and it's got its own thread. I have my own opinions about that, but this is something
Where are the anonymous postings disappearing to?
I know I'm not the only member who sees "last post - anonymous ATS" on their subscribed threads, only to pull up the thread and find nothing there.
It's happening again and again. It's not even as if the posting's been edited for breaking ATS rules - they're just not there.
What's up with that?
If you want a conspiracy theory to go with it, how about this? Anonymous postings were introduced so people could post without having to sign in,
which would mean a greater likelihood of insiders posting... but then someone at ATS (or even an outsider) hacks the post, removes it, and keeps the
IP and MAC addresses for further investigation.
I've no doubt there's a perfectly logical explanation for the numbers of posts that go missing. I'd like to know what it is, though.
