I am curious about making threads about linking possible suspects in national/international crimes and how is it viewed by ATS? For instance if there
is substantial evidence that is available to us the general public are we allowed to sleuth it up and connect dots? Is there a liability to ATS if
someone was to post a name of a person that may or may not have something to do with that crime? Is there a line that is drawn anywhere, is this
something that ATS has considered or had to deal with before?
I want to make sure moderator or ATS representative knows that I am not making any accusations, or saying I am suspicious or anything, we are talking
about a hypothetical situation set in the future.
I can think of a few reasons ATS would be weary of this happening considering libel and such, would there ever be a reason to close a thread like this
that wasn't due to libel law?
A second question I am just off topic curious about, do ATS mods sign any NDA's at all regarding things that are non proprietary website related
