And Masqua, yes, I would like to discover the REAL truth. If you know it, why can't you spill the beans or at least give us a hint?



In order to understand a small truth, as in IP tracking, one must first come to understand the REAL truth

Once the greater truth is realized, the smaller truths become more readily evident to our understanding

Hint: What Kinglizard said is a truth. Those who choose to disbelieve need to find that which forces their disbelief.

Oh my gosh...that was something I posted in 2004 for April fools day. ATS always had fun that day with jokes for the board. At the time I wasn't staff yet and posted that to join in the Aprils fools day fun.


This is why we can't have nice things.

Seriously, though, I see it as a sort of litmus test for people - anyone should be able to verify this one in seconds for themselves. The ones that don't try - start cointelpro threads.

I find it funny that this member throws out these wild accusations toward ATS then as this to say.

Ok and I am going to do my research and see what comes up, a friend of mine gave me this info and more info than just that. He actually told me that he didnt know if that part was true but i figured i would bring it up, with a title to attract and get some answers. But this is the tip of the iceberg, for now I gotta go, but I will return. Peace


I may not be the sharpest knife in the drawer but I think I would have done the research first before looking foolish becauseof an April Fools joke. Which by the way must have been really good if people are still believing it. This just goes to show how research should be done before you just post something that is not even real. SO do we all understand now what a little research can do, it can mean the difference between being a respected member or it can make you look really foolish which is what is happening here. So nobody take this personal it is just an observation on my part.

Truth in jest, eh?
One of those occasions where the truth is told in such an outrageous manner that it becomes unbelievable?

I'm guessing you didn't watch the video I provided OR you did but could bring yourself to be open to the various possibilities. Instead, you are determined to pursue the opinion you have formed.

Believe something strong enough to make others believe the same and it eventually becomes the 'common' truth. Goebbels knew that as well.

I did not see that you had posted that video at the time I was posting. I suppose we were writing at the same time. Thank you for answering.

I am not determined in pursuing the above opinion. I have not "formed" that opinion about ATS. I have no reason at all to question or disbelieve the moderators here. Most of us are here for the Truth. And I feel very confident that ATS moderators would have truth, honesty, and integrity as an innate personal attribute or they would not be here.

I apologize if my comment caused anyone to question the integrity of a moderator. I did not intend that.

I just read thru that thread and I think everyone should go check it out. It seemed that they almost decided that you were joking and then they seemed to do a 180 degree turn.You surely did have a good one there.


These are the type of April Fools jokes that haunt you when you think it is real then find out it was fake.How long did you think about this before you put it in motion? It didn't seem to be a spur of the moment kind of thing but I could be wrong. All I can say is you are a prince of April Fools because this prank has lasted longer than a lot of marriages.

Honestly I didn't really think about it very long. That day in 2004 ATS had some crazy April fools day prank going on, they did every year. It's was so much fun and really had the site buzzing. I thought I would add to the fun (so I thought) and post the cia ip thing. Really I had no idea what I was talking about. Not sure how I found the mil tracking site but it added credibility to my post. Then people started searching it which freaked me out so I came clean that same day because I didn't want people getting in trouble for searching that site.

I think the best thing that was said in that thread was from Spinger...


If we had Government Funding here I would be alot HEAVIER in the billfold than I am!


Just that comment summed up the whole thread. That was priceless.

That is correct.

The problem is that any time we attempt to do something amusing there will always be someone waiting to throw it back in our faces. It is no longer worthwhile to have the staff work on April Fools or Halloween pranks (both of which we used to do) only to have disgruntled people throw them back at us for years to come.

It does become tiresome dealing with this sort of trash, honestly.

The frustrating part of this is that the people who repeatedly post this trash don't even believe it. If they did, they wouldn't sign on here. No. The people who post this don't believe it.

They post it to attack our integrity and to malign our staff. Repeatedly. By the same small group of repeatedly banned members. The last thread like this desperately attempted to portray one of the site owners as someone he's not. Typical though.

But the best part about this is that unlike the hilarious title of this thread, we are not going to delete this. It's funnier to leave these threads up so the people who post it can wear them.

Make no mistake about it, while it is frustrating to see it over and over again, for the most part it's actually gotten kind of funny. You think we're government funded, fine. If you can't look it up yourself you probably don't deserve to know that this is a pathetic falsehood.

If you're going to believe a tiny group of people from their tiny little disgruntled corner of the web there is really nothing we can do about that is there? Perhaps a photograph of each of us NOT by a federal office?

Thank you for the laugh. Again. I look forward to the next time the same group of people decide that a month has gone by and it's time to post this again to attempt to slander us.

We'll still be around to mock it then, too.

I guess my post in 2004 outs those that would believe anything typed out on the Internet but it's still the single most regretful post I ever made on ATS. I have now worked with this site as staff for 5.5 years. I've seen the behind the scenes struggles and the hardship the owners have gone through to keep this site accessible to everyone without cost.

I can't help feeling ashamed that my single post on Aprils Fools Day 2004 has been used to hurt those that have struggled for years to supply this site to the world. They just want to bring freedom of thought to those that will listen. It's such a noble cause , one that I feel I have hindered. Year after year.....when this single post is thrown in their face, it's like a slap to my mine.

I doubt it will ever go away....something I will always regret.

the answer to the question: Wait until you discover the REAL truth?
there is no REAL truth.....
truth is whatever you want it to be,. if you believe ats to be a cia conspiracy trap. then that's what it is, to you. I believe ats will grow to be the best news source. bigger and better than cnn or fox or any other msm. but the downside to this growth is ats is becoming msm. and with growth comes pain and commercialism and of course govt involvment..................................................it was nice when ats meant above top secret. lately it seems ats means above top news sources.

Would they have hosted this site on a gov range ip if they were?

Knock Knock!

- Who's there?

- What's the answer?

-- "No."

If I thought the OP was true for one second I would leave this site...
Not because it was connected to the CIA but because there's no way I'd want to be on a site where the CIA funded owners were STUPID enough to use an IP that could be linked back to Langley...

I give the owners more credit than that..

BTW, wish I was here for the initial 2004 thread, that would have been fun, can't wait for 1st April next year..

Was that the "S.O. is secretly British" thread? I rather enjoyed that one.

I sort of see them as an opportunity to have a laugh with/at other members - it's so daft anyway might as well enjoy it. I can see where the topic might wear a bit raw if you were an owner, eventually.

No, no, the only real conspiracy regarding the site is whether there's a fourth owner, and if Simon is still alive, or if Bill has him pickled in a big jar in the basement like that old Alfred Hitchcock episode.
