In the same manner, **every** site could potentially be an experiment. Most sites, if not all, probably are monitored, ---whether the site creators/maintainers are aware of it or not. There are "groups" that have the opportunity, capability and motivation to monitor ALL internet and telephone traffic --I would imagine.
...this is crazy. Not only are we FORBIDDEN from talking about other conspiracy sites.

What I love about threads like this is that people are openly paranoid about who might be reading their stuff and complain about the forum, on the forum they are being openly paranoid about.
Harsh fact No.1 - anything you do online can be monitored. not just on ATS.
The question is whether or not ATS is specifically engaging in this type of stuff, not those other guys.
By stretching it out to absolutely everyone that may be doing this to us, it drags the subject far from the source, and waters down any progress we might make in understanding the subject at hand, which is ATS and whether or not it is an intentional petri dish.
Harsh fact No.2 - competitors to the site don't like ATS because they are competitors, and try to discredit it.
Harsh fact No.3 - some people just love to stir crap, for the sake of it. such is life.
Why am I talking about it? Well I love to point out hypocrisy. Its a flaw of mine. Am I riled up about it? No. I'm enjoying the conversation

If you would not mind?
I was wondering if you have ever seen the kind of disruptive trolling that we experienced on TheGUTs thread anywhere else in the time you have been at ATS?
For those that don't what I'm talking about, we were all on a thread together that experienced a truly phenomenal amount of, I guess you would call it trolling.
Here, see for yourselves, I think it went on for 2 pages at one point.
Thanks, in advance, I have been meaning to ask you.
P.S. This is for you, Hef. This thread needs a stiff brisk wind of Lemmy...
edit on 3-10-2012 by Xoanon because: Lemmy rules
why not just say "the internet is a lab"?
It is commonly believed in these communities that ATS is in fact an experimental website
