Thanks for the info. So do you you think I say his name here? I'm not sure yet.
How ridiculous it's gotten to the point we have to worry about stuff like this ("can I say his name"...etc). And unless by "powers that be" you
meant "ATS staff" no, TPTB have not been "cracking down" on people being named on internet message boards. The only
cause for concern
regarding that is 1- a lawsuit for libel, or slander.... which is something that's not easy to establish or win... historically you have to go pretty
far to be guilty of that or 2- someone just simply wants to suppress knowledge, for some reason or another.
If this guy is a public figure, or his behavior has been discussed in a mainstream media source, there is no reason on the planet a mention of his
name should be disallowed.
ATS is chock full of instances of both public figures and private citizens, and
various media stories being discussed, all day long. Every
other thread has content like this. Why we've recently seen so much information-stifling here is really curious.
Regarding the video.. that seems minorly odd. I know we're not supposed to post threatening content, but I always assumed that meant that we, the
members, were not supposed to say anything threatening. What about the alex jones thread where members of the media or whatever were quoted as
threatening jones? Should a mod be in there *SNIP*ping as we speak?
