This is just some hypothetical questions about HLS.
But do you think that HLS monitor this site?
Or is ATS just a drop of water in the ocean of cyber-space and not worth HLS attention?
I’m sure we have some members who work for different Government from around the world and come here for discussions and up to date info on the varied
topics posted here at ATS.
Would ATS be obliged to hand over unpublished email addresses if asked to do so by Home-Land Security?
Not that I personally care one way or the other, I’m just wondering about the reach of HLS, and would it only pertain to Americans or subscriber out
of the country as well.
Please don’t flame me.
Remember I’m talking hypothetical
P.S. Mods I won't be offended if you guys trash this, just thinking out loud (well on the key board)
It certainly wouldn't surprise me. If I were in charge I would be monitoring such site....look at some of the questions about weapons in the weapon
forum. It seems like common sense would dictate that they would....I dunno.....
This has been gone over so many times already. After reading ATS for quite a while now I don't think there is any way on this green earth that HLS
is watching ATS. Think about some of the incredibly stupid threads you've seen, would you as an Intelligence person actually try to harvest data
from a site that contains strings like "Police Beatings are Good" or "Nukes would be best for the US" Granted yes the second is a bit more
connected to the mission of HLS, the crap that followed was not, and should have shown that this place is more of a sounding board/peanut gallery than
some terrorist network waiting to strike.
Actually, I wouldn't be surprized, they are probably not monitoring the whole site just certain threads, but then I think they monitor other
political sites also, after all if they can monitor library access why not forums where people come to let off steam.
