And how would you propose that this website winnow out the mentally unstable? Staff psychologists or just leave it up to the membership to find and report them?
Does this apply to political stances? Social issues? Phobia? Trolling?
Where, exactly, are the lines to be drawn?

Any futur violent and troubled posts or threads ..the members should be classed apart by the mods watching them more closely
and if it goes worst .. ATS can contact the autorities and let them know of a potential violent individu
its the best thing to do
I disagree. I often make hateful remarks at the US. Military (because they are murdering criminals) here on ATS but I would never hurt anybody. Thats the reason I hate the US. Military; because they are terribly violent and love to murder innocents. Point aside; nobody should be classed apart from others. ATS is not the police nor are they detectives, so why don't we leave the police work to the police, yeah?

What better way to take down ATS then to setup a fictional persona, have a cia patsy do some high profile killing, then the media takes it for a spin and blames the conspiracy sites, which leads to a)internet ids b)site censoring c)anti-gun laws d)dead MODERATE federal representatives&judges..because ONLY the moderate get killed.

No. However, we won't be surprised if there is some contact today.

I believe I speak for most. ATS members, though we may not agree with everything that is happening in the world, we want peace.
We want positive change, and we aren't murderers. We are not terrorists. ATS strictly prohibits terrorist type activities. Many of us are simply concerned patriots, and we just don't want our constitution destroyed. No man or woman of this planet wants their freedoms destroyed. And, every man and woman deserves to know the truth.
erad3 does not represent what ATS is. If erad3 is indeed Jared Loughner, let it be known that the members of ATS does not support his senseless actions.

Of course ATS should not be seen as a harborer of a murderer.
It's quite obvious to see how flawed and deranged his thoughts are when reading his posts and threads.
It's great to see the ATS community counter his arguments with tangible and sane comments because this shows we can see clearly when someone's thoughts are just too radical and nonsensical and begs the question of mental health, age (very young), or possible hoax. With Jared Loughner however, it was no hoax, he really did think the way he did and it's a shame he did what he did.
