Is there such a thing as a straight answer on a debatable conspiracy theory?
It's all theory and how well a given theory is supported by evidence.

Not sure why you think this. What would the US govt have to gain from "insider" information on ATS?
So far there has never been anything "groundbreaking" actually posted on ATS, AFAIK. Everything has been exactly what ATS is about - opinions, theories and conspiracy ideas.
We've not had any real, documented whistle blowers come here and post any sort of verifiable information.
To be honest, as the Mod said - they probably DO monitor ATS, in so far as a new, registered account would allow them.
I wouldn't worry about any ATS-USgovt hidden deal. Unless there are frequent people who post particular types of hate messages or threats which again, I haven't seen.edit on 10-3-2011 by noonebutme because: (no reason given)

This is a simple question. Why are the Owners of ATS not telling us about all and any contact, conversations, directives, activity from and with the NSA, CIA, FBI or other government agency that is monitoring and/or being given unrestricted access to ATS and if there is none, so state.edit on 10-3-2011 by MajorKarma because: (no reason given)
Personally it's none of our business. They are the owners and they handle it. I personally don't care what alphabet agency is involved in ATS. I will say hi to them like i would any other member. If something of importance comes up the owners or admin always post the information in a nice detailed thread. They do it right and I like that. Example, the whole Jared Laughtner or however you spell it situation since he was a member. I thought how ATS handled that was pretty good.
What kind of restricted access do you think is on ATS? If there is some agency watching ATS, and I believe it'd be silly to think they don't, they wouldn't need the owners to get into areas of the site they wanted to see. I am sure they have the means

i'm sure the c.i.a is spending over $80,000 a year on salary and over a million dollars in training so a covert c.i.a analyst can sit on a desk 8hrs a day and browse over every stupid post.
especially since 99.99% of the info on ats isn't classified and could be found online with a google search.
can you imagine his daily briefing to his superiors;
agent: "boss, boss, i just read on ats that the president is a reptilian and that tap water has nano probes with radio frequency trackers.
boss: "good work, agent johnson. can we confirm the president is a reptilian."
agent: "way ahead of you boss. i just googled obama is a reptilian and got 7,000,000 hits. so it must be true"
boss: " good God, johnson. do you know what this means"
agent: " no, boss"
boss: " it means you're an idiot, and this program just wasted 48 billion dollars of taxpayer's money"
