Innocent or not, just by stating it, you're continuing to perpetuate the notion.

Why in the world....and in this world today....would you find that offensive? It just goes with the turf that some would think that anywhere that ideas of the nature talked about at ATS would have some sort of intel connection.

Word on the street is that this is a CIA site. Thats not far fetched at all to consider ATS a CIA creation. They do way more than snoop and poop out along the waterway. But really this issue will not be resolved.... I cant say that I know for sure anyway.



I mean If you really thought this was a Government site.

Why the hell would you even be here?

I really hope the Government is doing other things.

Besides, If this was my site and you said that to me.

You would be registering a different account today.

OP, I gotta ask, why would you *SNIP* where you eat? I'M insulted for S.O. & Co. You come here, fill up on conspiracies -fueling that aforementioned paranoia- and then extend that paranoia to the site that fuels it.

I have an idea. Turn off the computer. Cut that fuel line off.

It's like having a great vehicle with LOW gas milage that gets you wherever you want to go, and just for kicks, you slash the tires thinking "Well, without tires, it would fly, right?"

Good grief.

You never do your own research?

If you "heard" your neighbor might be a sex offender, would you proclaim what you "heard" when you enter his house party in front of all his guests?


Research would not discover it. It would be far easier to find out if my neighbor were a registerd sex offender. However if you consider what I said in that vain then it is duly noted.

At any rate I see this offends you to a high degree. I will just say that one guy that told me this is really deep into conspiracy ideas, visits all the sites, can go on for hours about UFOs, Illuminati, Masons, Chemtrail ect sort of a Mel Gibson character without all the booby traps. I would call him crazy but that would mean many here are crazy to some degree.

When invited to a neighbor's house for a party, do you concoct the most absurd insult and tell it to him in front of all other guests?

When you invite someone to your house for a party do you post advertisments on the wall to help pay the mortgage and then ask the guests to bring nachos for everyone to share?

That's what we do on ATS. WE generate the content, WE click and buy from the ads posted on ATS and WE also tell others about the site that generates extra clicks, extra money. Without user-generated content (IE: all of us) ATS would be nothing.

So all due respect, but you are not providing a free service out of the kindness of your heart and you are profiting from what we do here. We respect that you own, run and profit from the site and you should respect us if we decide to say ATS is a CIA front. It's only words and it's within our right.

So to be honest I could care less whether ATS is CIA or not, but who's insulting who here?

Sure it would. It's not hard.

Yes it does.



I would call him crazy...

But you just did the equivalent of taking the word of someone you would call crazy that your neighbor is really a sex offender (but not caught), and went to that neighbor's party and proclaimed in front of all his guests that he's a sex offender.

Perfect.

Well bestest buddy and Big Toe, Overlord may be offended but I am banking now on the faith that doing that would be beneath him.....it would violate his own firm constitution about what his site is about, even if I am walking on thin ice.

How many people have parties with over 200,000 guests every day? The analogy isn't ideal, but appropriate.

It's within your right, but I can't respect it, and will call it a lie when I see it, because that's what it is.

I would never have know that you consider the question on the same level as an unsubstantiated sex offender charge. I do now point taken.

Might it be an issue with bandwidth? I'm just curious because from what I understand playing at those gaming sites would eat up a lot of bandwidth and maybe the hospital has a policy about that, assuming you are using their internet sevice. Can you check other sites the use a lot of bandwidth and streaming and see if they are blocked too? I hope your tests go well and you get out of there soon. Your brain function sounds great, sorry about the seizure activity though.

Are we capable of displaying a lower level of collective imagination???

The day is young and hope springs eternal though....does it not???

Really... acting like a bunch of pilgrims in here...

House? This is an imaginary "space" created by our imaginary "presence".

It is a collective, ownership is relevant only in the minds of the "owners"...

With all due respect...anyone else but me feel the need to rip those comments/excuses a new hole or 3???

1: Definately not a silly question...
2: Alot of people may work hard to keep things running smoothly yet this would have nothing to do with wether or not the site is in the .GOV fold so, the fact that they may get their feelings hurt by these statements is a non sequitur.
3: We have ASININE restrictions on freedom of speech so the site can be seen from behind firewalls? Come on!
4: never forget how THE RABIES VIRUS functions


As if it is not even a thought that our freedom of speech should be sacrificed for greater internet access/coverage...

I guess I simply assumed a different reason for the loss of those freedoms... perhaps a more important reason because in my mind.... INTEGRITY is well above EXPOSURE, unless of course..... I got paid by the CLICK....

Bottom line in this instance... in this day and age... if you exist in the USSA... the USSA allows you to exist.

If this site begins to cause TPTB "problems"... it will be "fixed" ...wether the staff knows it, wants to admit to the reality... or not... already infiltrated and under complete control OR NOT....

This fact is why worrying about it... NOW IN THIS MODERN AGE... is simply paranoia...
If you feel suffocated then it is perhaps right that you feel this way yet do not expect the rest of the sheeple to be as alarmed by the sensation.

Furthermore...if one studies the etymology of "curse words" one may find that our modern concept of VULGARITY to be absurd, infantile, superstitious and otherwise regressive to mankind as a whole.

Drugs?

Alcohol is a drug, aspirin is a drug, some herbs are drugs, when I sleep my brain makes '___', a THC receptor site located inside the human brain = mankind evolved with THC and on and on I could go telling the TRUTH hard and fast the entire time yet WE are not allowed to even discuss the subject???

How Opium production in AFGHANISTAN has went up ASTRONOMICALLY since the U.S. invaded...

How BIG PHARMA has most of america HIGH AS A KITE simply by sipping alittle TAP WATER let alone the recent SCOURGE of the introduction of vast amounts of LEGAL drugs......
How the CIA and other alphabet agencies literally MAKE A KILLING the world over via the drug trade...

MODS/ATS PTB could say threads based on the above subjects are about DRUGS and pull them OR you could argue that they have HISTORICAL or POLITICAL or other significance and allow them to remain.

I dont know if I can take it and should probably just go back to using the site as a reference in lurkerdom forever and ever amen.....

ATS and Jeff Rense!!!


It is just like working for a corporation where if one head dick gets a hard on for you, all they have to do is watch you very closely because no one can do their job PERFECT all the time..... so slowly but surely, via attrition, they will pile up a few "pink slips/gigs" that when presented all at once... make you look real bad... a resignation soon follows this ordeal


I know I read the COC yet I truly did not agree with it and simply agreed to COMPLY to gain access...

Now I feel like a JEW in the NAZI S.S.


A traitor in the house of TO THINE OWN SELF BE TRUE....

I COMPLY while my inner self cries choking on the hypocrisy...

So many go on to boldly ask "Why remain then?" as it directly pertains to the NATIONLISTIC notion of LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT....

Because, like you, we feel that our perspective and opinion is important and unlike the apathetic masses playing farmville,cityville etc etc, feel that there is a battle currently on going for the minds of all mankind, right here and now and that to remain SILENT is to betray the sacrifices of the many who came before us.

Theres a few bits in there for the OP yet considering the OP's current position... I feel the need to exercise some restraint and only hope that they can get out of the "hospital" asap......... ASAP!

SO, try and not be so insulted, the idea in our heads isn't that you're an agent. Your contributions and efforts towards operating this unique place reveal your true motivations, and those of us who enjoy learning new things are indebted to you.

On the other hand, you are just one man. Can you honestly be 100% positive that in the vastness of your creation, TPTB do not have their hands in your honey-pot, contaminating it?

We read about psyops on here all the time which seek to dissolve the very purpose of this community.

Remember Laughner? Some of the coincidences can appear rather eerie. That, and the fact that those of us who wear the tin foil hats with pride tend to be a little, suspicious, we have no choice but hold some distrust in any hand which feeds us.

It's not about you SO, it's about the community. There must be traitors amongst us. What security measures might you run to prevent what you've built from being taken away from you and used against us? Have you interviewed each of your staff in person?

We are soon to be the enemy of a terrible force. We need you to show us you're protecting us from that. Do you see what I'm saying? This online world is getting dangerous for us, even offline.

Bestest Buddy and Big Toe.....


You are entitled to your opinion.

It must get old to defend yourself on a daily basis.

Just the last week there have been many similar threads.

You have been around a lot longer than myself.

Put yourself in the site owners position.

You would have to get tired of the same old unproven allegations.

I meant no disrespect to anyone.

Your Big Toe......Carry on.

I'm accessing ATS from my fed gov't workstation in DC right now. I can access this and a few others. Social networking sites, streaming media, and some other forums are blocked. I never thought anything of it. I'm in IT and know what kinda flags they're looking for. This wouldn't be one of them.
My first attempt to access Aljazeera was pretty frightening but I can still access it without being drug down into the basement for questioning

What it comes down to is the 1st amendment I think. Even if they were logging this post right now I don't think they'd consider myself or my internet history to be a threat. You might just be paranoid OP. Just sayin...

"""Is ATS really in a league with the government?"""

In 2007 a "private entity" gave the owners of this site an undisclosed 6 figure sum to get co-ownership of this site.

Why would a "private entity" do that? They'd never make any money.

Try Cryptome dot org. There's another front you can access from even DOD computers.

I would say that world of warcraft is a known gaming site so they block it, but ATS is the "fringe" so a random hospital probably never heard of it, and since the website doesn't have swear words or porn images on it it most likely would bypass any type of automated blocking system...just my personal opinion.

Private Entity in this context is a single-purpose partnership of Angel investor Venture Capitalists.

How are you certain they'd not make any money?
