Hello to all members of the ATS Forums. I would like to take my first post as both an opportunity to introduce myself to the community, as well as
(hopefully) a chance to clear any misunderstandings that you may have as it pertains to the recently formed website, URL REMOVED
as well as the
collective you all are probably familiar with, Anonymous.
Moderators and or admins, if there is an issue with the use of the website in the title or in the thread as stated, please allow me to correct this
post by removing it. I have not plugged the site, rather I have stated where I come from in hopes to have an open discussion with the community. I
have read your terms of service, and it is my understanding that I am not in violation of those at this time. If I am mistaken, I will gladly
Now, to the ATS members: Hello, in the future, please refer to me as 'Shanks', as the anon part is obvious. This is also the identity that I use as
a Moderator and IRC Operator on the website previously mentioned.. as well as over the anonops and anonnet servers. I have spent time over the years
reading many interesting threads here on ATS, and let me first say thank you to any of you that have contributed to my enjoyment and knowledge during
this time. I believe ATS has a great member base, which I am happy to be apart of.
I am a part of the collective known to you as Anonymous, and have been since early 2006. I will not clog my OP with a long detailed history of my
experience as being a part of this collective, nor will I try to sell you on "The Plan". I simply wanted to open the conversation to any members that
may have any questions about Anonymous, and more importantly, members that have any questions or concerns in the back of their mind about The Plan.
For those of you that do not know what I am referring to, please direct yourself to the following thread, which was one of the reasons I decided to
take an active part in this community:
I am no spokesman for Anonymous, nor for The Plan.. I am merely someone with knowledge of both, extending the offer to have a discussion and answer
any questions that you may have.
