It's really quite simple, there's something going on here that isn't in the "public" (content creators) interest and soon enough we'll all know what the crack is!

This is ONE THREAD. There are almost 6 MILLION posts that have been made since ATS went online. There is NO WAY that the small handful of staff could control that many posts.

Yes but he was also very rude and demanding of the Mods. "Like Answer my Question Now" They answered him. He was looking for a fight! Period.

I noticed 'prove it' just joined 3/31/09 How could he get the points and post so quick? It took me a couple of days at least to be able to post. Maybe it was the forum or something?

Yet... our "government overlords" are supposedly compiling thousands upon thousands of times more data each day on our movements and dispositions. How have they overcome the issue of mining useful data out of volumes of disorganized information, and why can't the ATS mods use similar techniques.

If you took the time to read through the many different articles in this website, you would see it is clearly not a disinfo website. Are there users who might use "disinfo tactics" to derail a thread? Sure. But you cannot expect mods to only allow posts from what they deem "non-disinfo posters." Plus it is rather easy to label somebody as a "disinfo agent" if they have strong views that oppose your own.
On balance ATS mods are pretty lenient with what you are allowed to post. You cannot have free reign with no restrictions or limits because this will lead to forum chaos and counter-productivity.
