....And it may just be my way of thinking is flawed, but to me it seems that it would require much more manpower, you know, much more than just a couple of agents behind a screen, and as a product of requiring so much manpower, it wouldn't be feasible for any government agency to enact a broad disinformation campaign.....

Something else: would the government really need to pay people to post disinformation, when the community is usually split to begin with? It seems like one half of the community will do the government's job for them.

After being censored on ATS myself, I did some research and found the following information :
I did a trace route on ATS. the Node Name is listed and maintained by the government.
IP Address 213.206.128 213.206.129 213.206.130
Node Name Gov-bb21-lan-14 Gov-bb22-lan-15 Gov-bb23-lan-16
Location Langley, Virginia
Network Used whois.nic.mil (for military network information)
It was difficult to get the IP Address, It was spoofed and looped over 9 times. Anyway Langley, Virginia is where the CIA headquarters is. I'm more than concerned.
