You sound like somebody who hates their job, makes it difficult for all those he works with but won't quit and the bosses can't fire him without cause.

Not only is personal info not asked for or retained, it is actually Discouraged! I have seen many posts removed, because identifying information was in the post!
Anything I post on the internet on a site which I do not own (and sites I do own are often plagarized!), is definitely subject to be reprinted or used. I appreciate the credit that ATS gives when they do repost something! They have never put up anything of mine that did not give appropriate credit back to me!
The OP mentioned Youtube and Facebook, but those sites are just as likely to repost your material, or use your likenesses for marketing, and you agree to those things as soon as you sign up!
Kudos to ATS for being fair, and having some of the most clear and rigid T and C's I have seen anywhere.
