Totally missed your post in reply to me. I actually had an obsessive ex as well so I can commiserate on that one. He's not the reason why I ended up having to hide though he did get to the "if I can't have you, nobody can" point at the end. I managed to talk him out of it and to my freedom so I got very lucky and always remind myself of that. The source of my hiding isn't him. It was a violent sociopath with whom I had no personal connection. Didn't even know he existed in my life until he started making his presence in it known. I had no clue how much danger I was in but the police detectives that eventually took on the case made it very, very clear to me to hide for the rest of my life. There were no stalking laws at the time. I have zero hope of ever finding out where he is or if he's dead as he disappeared off their radar years ago. lol sounds like a terrible made for tv movie but there you have it in a low amount of detail. I'll u2u with the info I'm omitting deliberately. Compared to the obsessive ex, at least the obsessive ex clearly indicates when he's around. This guy didn't and that's terrifying.

Again, I might just be reading way too much into things but please be careful of what information you reveal on the internet.

I thought that too and wondered how to say it on her thread. I already rain on too many parades. I also gave up worrying what they are going to do to me. They already have my email address. I would sooner be counted with those that spoke up against than just all those that only go along.

You guys do realize that everything you say is recorded for future use against you?

Not like they are building a case but if they have too they have all the data of everything you ever said on line to sort thru?

Yep. That's why, if I say anything on the net, either privately or publicly, I make sure that it is nothing that I would ever regret uttering in the first place. It doesn't matter who a person is. The info just accumulates and probably only gets looked at if a program rifling through it all throws up a flag or something.

The above network has your e mail. It is not on your profile so no one has your e mail unless you give it to them.
There is no way to identify anyone from these questions. Just belonging to this particular web site says that the member has at least an interest in the esoteric and mysterious so saying this identifies someone who may be suseptable to brainwashing is well hog washing.

I'm with you on that. I dont even see this as remotely like a facebook experience. As for a dating site, all I can say is Hell No. In most cases you dont even know the sex of the member let alone what they look like or what their interests are. I assume that like me the members here have other interests besides conspiracies and the bizarre. We dont know ages unless they state them. That is the blindest kind of dating I've ever heard of.

You guys are so naive, it's so sad to see.

Each website you visit, each online banking, visiting a shopping site etc. will already track much more intimate details, down to your demographics, what you buy/like, what your interests are and so much more.

If I go to Amazon.com, facebook etc. it will already reveal PLENTY of myself, for example my likes for several subjects/books, my approx. location (internet provider), financial situation to some extent and my age even. So...let me guess...you guys are tweeting and using facebook, do your online banking and credit card applications online, but then FREAK OUT over a thread on a message board?


If you wonder how I know: I am in internet marketing, you would be BLOWN AWAY if you knew what google, amazon, facebook etc know about you and how demographics ans statistics are tracked. If you're so paranoid, the best thing is you unplug.

Na... I may have pondered a slight 'nosy' & ;Info fishing' thread but ended up just doing it anyway... only gave out my star sign... and age... dont see anything wrong with it....

I usually dont reveal my age but on this occasion I just said 'funk it'...

There are much more important questions to ask, if someone is trying to get personal info. Besides... look at whats outside in the shops the next time you go....

My goodness you really like to paint people with a broad brush. I would say that there are (outside of the MBTI) infinitely varied reasons for why a person would be a member on these boards. Some may hold interest, as you observe, in the esoteric and mysterious (I'm deathly allergic to the occult, new age and a few other things btw). Others may be here for alternative political discourse and yet others may be here with the thought of combating misinformation about science, politics, or what have you. Others may be just lonely and like the fact that the majority of the people here are fairly accepting (good forum rules/moderating).

If you hadn't noticed, there are a total of 45 or more subforums on this site covering just about every kind of genre from conspiracy, the esoteric, paranormal, politics, science, ecology and more. That invites a pretty good variety of interest. Your statement of susceptibility would also vary because everybody has their own reason for being here. I think the only generalization one could really make is that those who post on these forums have a varying degree of tolerance for thinking outside of the box. People just aren't that simple.

Oh, my God...WhiteAlice...that is REALLY horrible! It really does sound like a made-for-TV-movie but my life does too so no worries on that. Yeah, the "if I can't have you, no one will" thing got old for me and I ran off, foolishly thinking he wouldn't find me...surprise, surprise, he found me! But I'm just happy to not have died that night and to be free now. I can't believe the issue you have to hide is some random psycho, though...well, I believe it but you know what I mean, that's just so crazy...I swear, sometimes when I hear abou people like that, I just wanna yell "WHERE DO THESE NUTJOBS COME FROM?!?!?!?"

K, U2U me whenever you feel like it. Actually, if you have just a few pieces of information about him, you can contact any private investigator and they can do a simple search with a computer program that only private investigators really use (I mean, if you have the guy's name and a city he lived in, a private investigator can give you every address they've ever lived at, every cell phone number they've ever had, ever document from any court case they've been involved in, Social Security number, birth and death certificates, marriage licences and divorce decrees, etc.) and find out exactly where he is and if he's dead or alive. I have a best friend who's fiancé is a private investigator, they own their own investigation company, and I've had to have them use that nifty program to make sure that my ex-husband is staying good and far away from me. You might wanna look into private investigation, though.

Most of the regular posters here gush about their personal views and general demographic status. I don't see where any of those questions reveal anything that a quick post search wouldn't easily reveal.

Thank you, jacygirl! That really means a lot of me.


I'm so sorry you went through the same kind of thing! It makes me so sad to hear that so many women have been through these situations...it seems like the majority of women have had at least one experience (short or extended) with abuse and that is just unacceptable. I know exactly how you feel...one day, you just get sick and tired of hiding and say "No, I am NOT hiding anymore. I am DONE with living in fear."...I made that decision a while back and by God, I'm sticking to it for the rest of my life, come Hell or high water. I'm so glad to hear that you made it out of your situation okay and with the resolve to not live in fear anymore...no one deserves to have to go through that or live in fear, I'm so happy you overcame it all! *hugs*

Same here...I'm not afraid to participate in smyleegrl's thread or any other thread...I definitely know that smyleegrl's motivation was purely curiosity, just to find any parallels and similarities in the respondents of her first Waiting Game post...I'm not really sure why so many people are having such a hard time understanding that but I guess it's to be expected that if you're in the company of conspiracy theorists, they will see a conspiracy. I know for sure that as far as I'm concerned, I AM sick of living in fear and I DO want to share my story...I think we should all try to eliminate as much fear as we can out of our lives and try to tell our stories for the betterment of those who hear them. If everyone stayed silent, how would we raise awareness about things? How would we ever change anything? It's important for us all to share our stories...if not to hopefully impact those around us, at least to get to know each other better and become friends and even get things off of our chests. If people wanna continue living in the dark and in fear, they can go right ahead...as for me, I'm here to say that I'm no longer afraid and I'm living in the light and it feels fantastic.

Yeah, I knew that last part wasn't for me, haha. I really enjoy reading what you write too, you seem like such a nice person and I'd be proud to count you as one of my ATS friends!


P.S. I love your avatar! I'm super stoked for the new season of Game of Thrones...only twelve days left!!! I can't wait!

It could be that any person(s) answering the quiz are more likely (or easily) brainwashed, not according to the questions themselves, but only because they bothered answering the questions at all?

If that makes sense at all.

It is not on your profile so no one has your e mail unless you give it to them.

You had to give up all your personal info to get that email address in the first place. Thats what I meant. The gov is the one recording everything you say...

And if they want to look further every place you post on line requires that "e-mail" address too.

Am I missing something? Every time you cash a check or use an ATM, pay by credit card, rent a hotel, register a car, buy a gun, pay your tax, get a job...

If there is something we do in America that isn't monitored any more, let me know. All day long we are watched by cameras and tracked for our purchases, our home address, social security number, smile for the camera at the DMV, etc, etc.

Helicopters circle overhead, police pull you over at the slightest suspicion. The walls at the borders are going up, drones are coming.

We reveal ourselves all the time. I'm not saying they are compiling, just that all those little tidbits about you are there if they want to. And they will be there forever.

My father always said that if anything catastrophic ever happened, THEY (AKA the American government) would save the best, the brightest, and the beautiful (AKA the ones they can use best for their brains or sexuality) to rebuild America and that I could rest easy at night knowing that if that catastrophe ever happens, I'm one of the ones they'll take.


LOL~All fathers say that to their daughters..

Thank YOU for posting this OP. Exactly what I was thinking too.

Not only did it seem like a segway into fishing for info (especially considering the first thread became this second "innocent" questionnaire), but I was a little taken aback by the narcissistic nature of it. Perpetuating the "Me Me Me" mindset.

No, I don't think I'm familiar with either. I know Atreyu has a song called Doomsday, though. I love rock music. My top two favorite bands are Led Zeppelin and Tool.

A few other favorites in alphabetical order - ACDC, Avenged Sevenfold, Black Keys, Black Label Society, Brand New, Breaking Benjamin, Bullet for my Valentine, Chevelle, Deftones, Doors, Evanescence, Five Finger Death Punch, Flyleaf, Heart, Incubus, the Jimi Hendrix Experience, Korn, Linkin Park, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Mastodon, Metallica, Nirvana, A Perfect Circle, Pink Floyd, Rage Against the Machine, Rammstein, Rob Zombie, Rolling Stones, Santana, Slipknot, Smashing Pumpkins, Staind, Stone Temple Pilots, Sublime, Three Days Grace...those are just a few...I like a LOT of stuff from classic rock up til contemporary rock.


Great choices of two top bands. Zeppelin was mystical for its time. I think this guy is trying to prove he can figure out who you are based on the many types of information you have put out there..

I have to add for the rest of this commentary, who cares. Some people think that us ATS'ers are people in tinfoil hats sitting in our parents basements. I'm actually the guy on lunch break that's talking about how Diane Feinstein is a lunatic, and how I'm going to crap my pants if Peter Turkson is elected to the papacy. We don't care to hide anymore. We're walking the path telling you people to wake the F up. Your TV is brainwashing you far more that any of us are afraid of some ABC government agency being able to do so in the middle of the night.
