Basically, I wanted to ask the owners of ATS if theyve ever received a request by anyone, particularly government officials, for user information and or IP addresses of a member of this site?
If so, what was the response to this request?
If you havent yet but do receive a request for user info in the future, what would your response be?
Dont get me wrong, im not making any accusations what so ever but considering the content of some posts can stir up a lot of Anti-Govt sentiment, i think its a fair question to ask.
Sorry if this is in the wrong section, I'm fairly new here and still trying to find my way around.
Well it's happened on other sites:

This is not, however, the first time that the Feds have focused on Indymedia -- a Web site whose authors sometimes blur the line between journalism, advocacy, and on-the-streets activism. In 2004, the Justice Department sent a grand jury subpoena asking for information about who posted lists of Republican delegates while urging they be given an unwelcome reception at the party's convention in New York City that year.
