I admit that I just read the first 20-30 post so maybe this was already asked: Do they copy all post we add here or just a few selected at this other
And if they copy all post do they also delete them if something was deleted/censored here
Your first question... It seems as if almost everything from (at least certain forums) is copied. i couldn't say for sure as i didn't look for
everything (i don't have that much time). But it appears as anything new posted here (ATS) goes right up over there. Also, it seems they steal from
other sites too (like celebrity websites). They also have a twitter and youtube account.
Your second question... As far as i could tell my original post on ATS that was deleted (by ATS) was also deleted from the other site too (about any
others i could not say). At first i was just going by memory, when i found there were too many i started to favorite items on my computer for further
reference, and then that got so full so i stopped.
The last few pages here have some members who seem to have a good idea what's up with this other site.
Yet, in my browzing around i found two other sites where it appears some ATS members have plagerized from (not exact content but slightly changed).
The plagerizing ATS members is (IMHO) more likely an ego thing or trying to appear smart.
As some others have commented - It's the internet and things will get reposted, stolen, stashed and cached...
i guess it's kinda like leaving your car door open with C.D.s on he front seat or forgettin' your sunglasses on a counter somewhere - Yoink - and
it's now somebody else's.
Besides that i found this other website puzzlin' is i found that the mod deleting my first thread equally as puzzlin' (especially now that this
thread has garnered so much attention (not to mention a whole lot of U2Us asking me what the link was and some other comments about ATS's mods and
dropped posts and deleted comments. But maybe that's for another time and thread.
Something nice i've found on this thread, is the comments i've read and received here (so far) have been intelligent and thoughtful and thought
provoking. That's what i like about ATS, and what appeared was drifting away as ATS got bigger. So, thanks to all who've responded
