I would have to say that there is so much Dis-Info posted by regular ATSers, that dis-info agents are not really needed.

In three years on this forum I have encountered precisely two posters who appeared to be agenda driven, professional posters. In both cases they managed to keep an audience for about a month before their one dimensional propaganda was seen for what it was and was ignored by the bulk of the ATS community.
The assumption that there are droves of paid posters and professional disinfo agents on ATS is taking the easy way out and doesn't address the realities of how intelligence organizations work. The NSA doesn't want to tell you what to think. They want to know what you really think - what your core beliefs are once emotion comes into play.
In short, you have no need to fear an "OS" person... But you might well have a reason to fear the posters who come along with militant and strongly worded anti establishment threads. These are the little nooks and crannies of the Interwebs where people tend to find themselves targeted, scrutinized, and manipulated.
BTW this is not the opinion of a guy with 3 years on ATS... It's the opinion of a guy who's been online since the 1980's. Take it or leave it as you wish.

Great care has to be taken here not to stir up a witch hunt or an inquisition. Although I don't agree there are no agents on ATS. At the same time. You'll find them behind every door, and under every rock if you allow yourself too.
As I said before. Don't get caught up in it. If we do, we do more damage than any agent could ever do.
And any one or more of those 25 tips could fit a variety of folks at any given time. It's just human nature.
