Since I've registered ATS I somehow "spoted" some different types of people. Of course each of us is unique still I tought it could be "fun" to
describe people posting on ATS into somehow "representative groups".
Of course I will not try to make any describtion about "read only people", the ones not posting, which represent among ATS traffic I guess a vast
Also I tought about naming some guys specificaly but I don't like the method and possible result (and drama) neither it may add any usefull
informations, rather I prefer to present my post as a "guide" somehow to help the reader "profiling" a little the people they may be
reading/interacting with on ATS.
I'll start from the "less interesting" to the go the "most interesting" although there is no real order.
"The evil soul":
The evil soul is a sinister spirit (lol) wishing to add more mess and doubt into a thread/subject and thus somehow into people mind. He rarely start a
new thread but like to make one post here and there in order to add more confusion and chaos by intentionaly misleading or just disinform for "fun".
Most of the time he is not interested about the subject he posts about and if he leaks a real information, it's almost sure it's by mistake or in
order to misslead further his readers later.
The evil soul might prosper well on ATS as nobody spoting his foolish attitude, he also get rarely censured and might spit his evil messages (lol)
without anybody noticing for years and years.
The troll is a troll
Hard to know what the troll as to say because his post are deleted/replaced by a banner. There are all kind of troll, some are
just funny wishing joke, some are angry insulting others. Some troll might even be posting ultra top secret information that "may need" to be
censured by the moderators, who know
Depending his troll posting frequency the troll might survive for a while on ATS or get banned. Also maybe not all trolls seems equal on ATS.
The noob is the guy just discovering ATS and the conpiracy theories in the meantime, most of the time he had no ideas about those subject prior to
ATS. The noob is quite easily submerged with tons of weird informations he didn't have idea about couples of hours/days/months before getting on this
website. They are different types of noob but they all share the same caracteristics and you can reconize them quite easily since they like to ask
tons of random question about all kind of topic. Another caracteristic of the noob is he cannot create a new thread so it push him even more the ask
random question about things he has no clue about in others member thread. Most of the time the noob is nice and easygoing. He is not a source of
information but neither of disinformation.
"The fed agent in activity/working"
ATS may not be a free party, there may be feds agents in activity/working (mostly from United States I guess) watching and posting and interacting
with user on this website. Most of the time they seems to like to ask questions about various subject and you may reconize them as there new thread
look like sometimes like a "poll" (which is kinda funny). Also they may like to propagate commonly known/admited theories about various subject and
to start thread about commmon subject to propagate those same "admited theories". Most of the time they are poor source of informations if no
disinformation and maybe the best to do is just to avoid them and not to get into their focus no matter what you say is right or wrong, provocative or
not. Also the fed seems to work in "pair" with another fed when posting in a thread. Most of the time the fed agent user imay bes a "well
established" user with many post and many S&F.
The teenager might be spoted as a "noob", but most of the time he is not. The teenager is curious like the noob, but going further he might spend
hours and hours writing on ATS about a subject he "studied", or seek the internet, try to find documents etc etc. Most of them might just seek ATS
"superficialy" for "fun reading" and passing time, posting few funny comments. Still sometimes some of them might goes into real "investigation"
because they get really interested by a topic. They can be valuable source of information.
To be continued.. ? (very incomplete)
