Was J Edgar Hoover really a cross-dressing sado-masochistic Homosexual that everyone has been gossiping about for the last 60 years etc.

Unless this guy worked with JEH back in the day, he would not know. If he did work side by side with JEH, he still probably wouldn't know, and if he did know, he wouldn't tell.

Nice to know this site has been noticed for its educated people as much as nutters.
There is a lot of effort put forth by some of our members and I do think it is true that we are capable of some pretty good collaboration regarding a myriad of topics...regardless of some of the opinions expressed (which can be said for any group of online collaborators)...

A few years ago there was a Member here whom is also someone I know in real life.
He works for our country's NZSIS (sorta like our version of a semi-alphabet agency).
He would often tell me that he and his colleagues regularly visited such sites as this for numerous reasons:
1. For a good laugh at just how 'out there' some of the opinions/theories being expressed were
2. Chances are - as you have mentioned - any 'nut' intent on doing something silly may well frequent these sites.
You want to catch fish, you gotta cast your line into a fishing pond.
As for experience of when ATS crosses over into ones work-life:
As some know I work within Mental Health.
Sitting in a Case Review one day the Psychiatrist discussed their assessment interview of one client.
This client was expressing exceptionally paranoid and delusional beliefs - and apparently was citing ATS as proof of such beliefs.
The Psychiatrist had checked out ATS and made comment to the Team in the Case Review that this site seemed to be quite a hotbed of delusion and paranoia.
Even going so far as putting in his personal opinion that sites such as this should be removed from the Internet as they feed peoples Mental Illness...
Sure as heck didn't mention in that Case Review that I moderated this site...

Dragonseeker, you have confused me with the OP in your thread.
He does have similar energy to my own in the way he writes about writing whatever the hell he wants to write about. But if you go back and look you will see the differences in what he has said and what I have said.
It's not about me, they were arresting a pedophile or a hacker; neither of which am I.
Though if they, the FBI ,wanted me to help them track down criminals I would do that I would do it in a heart beat
If they wanted me to tranlate Spanish for them I would do it in a heart beat
Fortunately I am only a singer songwriter guitar playing performing and recording artist.
Like the poster above said, maybe some posters attract more attention than others Indeed.
My love is for music and conspiracies.
They don't care about me
If they do they are observing the evolution of my craft. But their doing it through spying lol
Those guys should at least give me a record deal if their going to spy on my house while I'm performing
My show is not open to the public yet guys!
When I'm singing about reptiles I'm being artistic!
For god's sake leave Georgia alone
Sarcasm should be noted of course
But no, I'm not the cop, the OP, who started this thread. There is just the juxtaposition of our points on a grid. The locale of the state of Georgia.
And this was not near Athens, GA.
Though I still don't know why the military choppers were over Athens.
Maybe the FBI guy knows
The agent told me that they DO frequent the site because believe it or not, there are many educated and informed people on here who DO give some great insite into all sorts of topics
I'm sure they do, some of us have catalogued useful sources that would take hours to find themselves. Why not make the job easier, I know I would in their position
