if people didn't log onto these sites then nobody would know anything about you or what your topics are, Maybe ATS keeps afloat with help from the government to detect possible "nutters" or the too clever....
who knows, there actually is no delete account function which is a worry if you decided to up and leave
It's the rudeness and sarcasm from the mods drunk with power and control on a board of all places, not as if it is in the real world or they are CEO of a company. Bullying online is one of the most pathetic tactics.

The people perpetuating the rumor that sites like ATS are COINTELPROs are the government operatives?
Think about it.
What better way is there to stifle free speech (and therefore any possibility of uncovering government wrongdoing) than to frighten people into silence?
Not pointing fingers, here. I doubt the OP is a government agent. Just saying that perhaps the people who keep these types of rumors afloat are.

The distancing of Simon Gray from ATS, this site was his baby, he seems to hardly visit much any more, I have U2U'd him and he does seem to be vague and different (just my opinion)
i read the post and there was nothing in it worth deleting let alone banning the user. only myself and another member posted on his thread before it was deleted and he was banned. i wont mention the user because im not sure if he wants his id named. the other member then created a thread about this even which was also deleted. one by accident maybe but to accidentally delete 2 related threads and ban a user?
