It is commonly believed in these communities that ATS is in fact an experimental website where members are given data and their reaction and/or knowledge is observed and recorded.

Now before all the mockery begins, i'd like for you to take a minute, take a deep breathe and tell me how this would affect you if it turned out to be true.


Would you still come here?
Would you think twice before you post?

(Ironically most people here dont really care it seems, as long as they think this place is for their own good, they dont really care about being used or watched.)


Is this thread another attempt to solicit a response for research ? maybe ?

For me - I don't care either way as you point out. Data mining, spying, co-opting is an every day 'thing' and been around longer than the internet.

As I see it, this site gives me another opportunity to express myself and live my 'truth', so I am grateful for that. Does that put me on a government 'black list' ? probably. That's OK too - I will be more than happy dying fighting for the truth. That is real martydom. I know I have done it before - many times.

Peace

i know that the American gov definitely has eyes in here at the least, it wouldn't be to far fetched to think its there site to begin with. but yes i would still come here cause i do gain knowledge from this place


Yeah...It would be very far fetched.The owners of this site make no attempt to hide..You can send them a U2U right now and talk to them... You can look up all kinds of information about them online...

The staff is all volunteer. Members like you and I. They come from all walks of life, religions, back grounds, cultures and even different countries....

Hell, Mark grew up not too far from where I live! They are nice guys and open to conversation of you give them a chance...

So, stop wasting time speculating when the answers you look for are right there in the open...

Sorry, but there really is no conspiracy with ATS. It is owned by a private party... And that information is available to the public online... The staff are members who volunteer there time...

Sometimes, things really are as they seem.Not everything is a conspiracy.

Now, go ahead and call me a disinfo agent... ( I've been called much worse) but the truth is,you are talking out of your butts until you take the time to actually start up a friendly converstation with Bill, Mark or any of the staff and see just how boring the behind the scenes stuff really is....

Hey, I would love to think we are special and being watched...But at the end of the day, we are just a public internet forum and we discuss things ranging from UFO's all the way down to the latest Britney Spears debacle....


We aren't really that special... Again, the owners, admin and staff are right there for you to talk to... Go find out for yourselves that they are just normal ordinary people... ATS is a business...Not a government lab where we are being spied on...

Don't believe me? Then go talk to the owners!

Peace and love

It's been a while since we saw one of the "ATS=CIA/NSA/goverment/put your fav agency here" thread and i started to worry


Are we being watched?Yes,everyday and everywhere(not just internet)
Do we stop doing what we do because of that?NO,we go on with our lives.

So there's the answer.Even if we are being watched i wouldn't stop coming here and posting.

Check this thread,created by Skeptic Overlord and you'll find out that this subject has been discussed to death.

BTW,apart from rats,we have a chicken and a couple of bunnies

If it's a rat trap, it's poorly baited. I find information here that the MSM won't touch.
Maybe it is, they may just let us run free thinking the information won't spread. They're wrong.
If it was proven to be a trap, I'd still read and post. Why not, this is not their only way to track me.

Really... who cares about this place besides what it's worth in marketing dollars. If you are looking for "revolutionary" or "dissident" type thinking you are better off hitting your local university and sitting in on different polisci classes. Depending on the professor, they are waaaay more grey area than this site, and look at some of the student groups that form around them....



ATS is just for the crazies, and I come for the entertainment value...

Who cares, its a great place to chime in, vent and get a good laugh, and here at ATS you hear about issues you may not be aware of. plus it is a public site, Let them read our post, and if it is some sort of a experiment i hope their getting some good data.

If I thought people here were keeping track of me and seeing how to manipulate me etc etc ... I'd turn the tables on them and screw with them. i'd post in such a way as to screw up their data ....
I'd have fun with it.

Now, either I'm an honest guy making honest statements... or I'm a highly trained NSA employee, or Cybercommand technician, sitting at work and going through the unbelievably taxing ordeal of trying to create a fake persona - that is contrived and doesn't represent me at all.


No one was talking about your persona, yet you are talking about it again, and there is no other poster on this site that seems to be this adament about sharing almost all aspects of his personal life. Even when noone is asking about it.

where members are given data and their reaction and/or knowledge is observed


Given data...exactly. Like another poster said, I get info that you sometimes find in a 2 paragraph article in MSM on page 6 that should really be headlines.
Let them experiment, I know my own truth so am not bothered by their disinfo etc. I'm a pretty good judge of character too (yes, even online) so I'm probably one o those freakin rats in the lab that just won't go find the GMO cheese like I'm supposed to.
Life is an experiment, earth is the lab. ATS is a small soapbox in a big experiment.

Maybe it should read: "ATS is a LAB and 'they' are the flying RATS" - see below.


In keeping with (and in addition to) ATS's reputation as an NSA/CIA experimental venue ATS is best known for its CENSORSHIP policies and most especially its flagrant and quite arbitrary use of the "Delete Button" for posts and threads that they deem unworthy of ATS ?standards? (always without warning or explanation). Because of this ATS has acquired a God-awful reputation throughout the truth community specifically, and on the internet generally: well deserved I might add, and its one that I can attest to from personal experience on a number of occasions. As soon as something is said that some so-called Mod, or god forbid an Admin, is in disagreement with (for whatever unknown reason) they come swooping down for the kill.

Beware of Flying Rats


PS - Be advised - make a copy of your posts so that you know what, when, where, and why it was DELETED - because they won't tell you..

As long as my participation here at ATS doesn't cause any chromosomal damage - I couldn't care less

ATS is a place where people come to interact - express an opinion - see and be seen

I can actually see any number of people and or organizations looking to this site for useful information - but, so what?

For a sociologist - ATS might be almost irresistible :-)

That's exactly why I come here. I've already filled several notebooks.

i have actually had that opinion for some time.. quite a few of the opening posts are so intellectually lame, they seem to be written by people doing papers or studies among the various diciplines in college courses. they lack historical knowledge, and/or actual "life" lessons, gained through "butt in the seat" passage of time. or...these are simply ignorant and naive people.

Waste of time

Most people, like myself', put on our tinfoil hats before we log on. That way we are protected from the various Gamma, HAARP, microwave or any other thought altering process that would influence the general population at large.

I find it best to document only the non human posters

Yup. It's pretty much known that "they" visit and browse this site regularly. From the crazies, to the alphabet soup agencies, to the fringe and mainstream media source.

Hell, some of them are probably members who knows. I'd be disappointed if they weren't.

So yes and yes. If anything, it's to see what they do and say. Who said we can't watch the watchers?
