ATS is most likely just showing you how serious this SOPA issue really could be. It is benign at the moment.

They are trying to make people aware.

Guys this is just an add to raise awareness with the whole SOPA issue currently, which I'm sure a lot of you have heard about.


Basically censoring the internet, now if this happened, a lot of websites you enjoy/go on will turn out that way.

I saw this too! o looked in my history to find the page but could not find it.

at least someone got a screen shot.

and also... this was just a ruse to get people to realize the implications that sopa can have on a site like ats.

Notice it says "What if" above it. unless thats been added with the 'continue to...' link at the bottom.

I got the same refreshing a page. I couldn't go back in my browser even. I didn't click through. I find the whole thing odd.

Nice awareness, because the shock value was great.

I saw the what if, though. So, I wasn't too frazzled.

Yeah well, we need to keep in mind, "when" this happens.....theyve got this website and ALL OUR IP addresses
Just be aware of that. I'd say the day will SOON come when just being affiliated with this site will have incriminated us......of course now, we have free speech to fall back on, but when free speech is suspended, I dont think we'll get "grandfathered in" if you get my drift here........
