Wow...I am dumbfounded..First off to all the posters that say "hell yeah good job making the list", stop. Making a gov't list of this nature is not a badge of honor nor a cool thing. As an ex gov't employee I know first-hand that making these lists can seriously put a crimp in your day and f up your life.
Founded in 1913 by The Independent Order of B'nai B'rith, a Jewish service organization in the United States, its original mission statement was "to stop, by appeals to reason and conscience and, if necessary, by appeals to law, the defamation of the Jewish people. Its ultimate purpose is to secure justice and fair treatment to all citizens alike and to put an end forever to unjust and unfair discrimination against and ridicule of any sect or body of citizens."
“I think I remember an old adage from long ago, can’t remember where I heard it or who said it...but it went something like this: If a man won’t change his ideals with words, then you change his mind with a bullet.” Post by “boondock-saint” on the Above Top Secret Forums, March 24, 2010.

I was remarking to posters that were celebrating making a "list" nothing more. I made a list right after I got let go from my position, because I was terminated and didn't leave voluntarily.

Sad isn't it. Well there's only one way we can fight it. Just stay peaceful, hate and violence will get us no where, we would just be playing their game. We need to show the sheeple that the "fringe thinkers", are in the interest of every man woman and child, and we genuinely care about the rest of the world and the people in it, both positive and negative.

As for the people being mentioned only being 'moderates'. I'd imagine the more extreme people are still being watched, and mentioning them would alert them to that.

Hey Boondock! And others quoted! I know this might further put ATS in the spotlight, but you might have a lawsuit on your hands. They took you out of context and slandered your name. Same for Doc! I don't know the laws surrounding this area, but if you had a good lawyer (and you'd need it going after the adl) you could possibly pursue this as a civil matter. Just a thought. Any money you recoup could go into building an ark for the 2012 cataclysm to save your family and your brothers and sisters on ATS

I know you are not violent and you do care about this country. Just remember words are powerful tools. And I guess we have to always remember how we are taken in context.
ATS is filled with agents and they want to provoke it is just that simple look around.
We will always be looking over our backs and wondering form this day forward.
I would love to list the people I think are agents here on ATS.
