I'd like to say cheers for the hard work on the site, it's on my list of regular sites to visit when in the mood for news, politics and winding up the spooks...
I include ATS in my regular web viewing alongside such company as:
The Guardian, BBC, Channel 4 News, Reuters, The Financial Times, Indymedia, The Independent, John Pilger, The New York Times, New Scientist and a few
other sources that will remain nameless.
When I've my tin foil hat on this is a good place to be, and the thing I like most of all is that you guys actually allow debate to take place,
whether I agree with other users or not other's opinions are what democracy is all about.
I do have to say though where have the stars gone? It seems like there's a concerted effort from cross border intelligence services to shut down and
control sites like this. (see have your say over at BBC being down for over a week due to an IT issue - they need new IT staff if this is true)
But thanks for the hard work I sincerely hope this is not the point in time where things change for the worse on the net.
In the words of others far more intelligent than me:
DISSENT and DEBATE ARE HEALTHY FOR DEMOCRACY!
