What doesn't bear up to scrutiny?
ATS is a private website that has no affiliation with any government agency whatsoever.
People who are disgruntled with the site - usually ex members who have been banned because they are unable to post within the T&C (although not
always, sometimes people who are plain nuts or just haters)
All kinds of allegations get made against the site, and time and time again we try and patiently explain things, only for more people to pile on and
pee all over our carpet as they'd rather believe the lies than what we tell them.
This made me laugh. Mainly due to carpet peeing
I don't understand why this is so hard to believe, or why it would even matter. Who cares who owns ATS? Does that really matter? As far as I can
see, no subject is unduely censored here. I don't see how anyone can think there is an ulterior motive behind the site owners other than making money
off a site they themselves enjoy.
As Neformore said, no one makes anyone come here, we do it by choice. Who owns the site, or their motives for having the site are not relevent. If
you are worried about your content being reported to the NSA, try posting some threating comments about the president on facebook, or any other site
for that matter, and see how long it takes before you come under an investigation by the FBI. There is no reason to believe ATS is in bed with the
goverment, US or otherwise.
The topics discussed here daily should point out that ATS is a free speech zone, regardless of the issue in question. How that leads people to assume
certain things is beyone me. Someone please enlighten me.
