To me ATS is an incredible wealth of information, usually conveniently overlooked by the MSM
I'm thnkful to know there are so many thinking and analytical people out there, that's left in a physical world that seems to be dwindling in the way of thinking and critical analysis. It's comforting to know you can come here and get the gist of what's really going on behind our backs.

BTS Is also a good place to let what's bothering you like the rant forum, or see what bothers others. Or just General chit chat where you can throw out a question, and see if it's ever happened to some one else.


In other words it's a good place to hang out on when you have the time to do so.

What do you think ATS is? What purpose do you think it serves? What purpose do you think it SHOULD serve? Should it inspire millions of people to take up arms to overthrow a dictatorship somewhere? What, in your opinion, is the function of ATS other than offering old fools like me a place to chat, to pick up new ideas, or to reaffirm for myself that my thinking is correct (or incorrect)?

1:It is an awesome website!

2:For myself the purpose of ATS has been many things. Ways for me to share and examine my own experiences and other peoples, hoping to find commonalities. It is my home on the web. I find a lot of news here before it even hits the MSM. It's also a HUGE archive of some of the wildest and weirdest information I can find. Deny Ignorance is an awesome motto for ATS,we all want to find truth.

3:ATS is doing exactly what it should. It is evolving, and people who are unhappy with changes have a hard time adjusting, but they either get over it, or move on.

4:If it had that kind of political power it would not exist.

5: #2 answered this.

I found ATS over the years a great place for me to express myself in ways no other place has been able to allow me to do so. The people are great, even when the feedback is negative, I find it very valuable. I love hearing other peoples experiences, I love to share, compare and find commonalities between experiences. The conspiracies I find to be entertaining as well, even if they are somewhat out there, but then, so am I.

Btw, ATS censors this site from u2u messages and posting, so you'll have to do a google search.

Google this= "connecting ats to the DoD"

The thread was made by a site called " # hits the fan 411". A site created years back when ATS was split down the middle.

It probably doesn't even matter though if ATS is really controlled by the DoD or NSA, they can simply create posters here and talk about their favorite subjects.

So I dug into this and wow! The ats rabbit hole is really deep! I urge everyone to look at that forum.

Interesting thing I found any one heard of the mystery ats member AMALGAM170 ?

What do you think ATS is?

ATS is the child of the 'hopped up' questionable family, that lives down the road from you...ATS is the question you never wanted asked, the answer you were too scared to hear..?ATS is an SUV full of tech equipment in the back and passengers with attitude up front...ATS is an ashram, an asylum, an ambulance careening at full speed down the wrong off-ramp...ATS is that house down the road where no-one throws anything out, and you never know if anyone really lives there...ATS is my school project - in another dimension, ATS is the edges of the cosmos, the unifying principle, the theory of All...ATS is a field of rye, infected with a germ...ATS is the dance!...and the word!...it's got groove, its got meaning...ATS is the time, the place and the motion...ATS is the way we are feeling...

Also, there's a poster on here with an avatar with an image of ATS being right next to the NSA on an "internet map" on a site called disclose TV.

If you search "abovetopsecret.com" on disclosetv.com you get NSA and GLP right next to ATS. Now many people will say it's just because people are linking back and forth from ATS to NSA. Though, If that was the case you would see Wikipedia be on top of the ATS dot. So obliviously there's NSA employees that dig conspiracies. How neat.




But it actually goes deeper. The site owners wife works for Halliburton, which I find, hilarious. Not really anything to go on, I just find it funny that the site owners wife works for a company that profits off death.

But why would the NSA even bother trying to control this site if they can just make posters and "debunk" everything? My opinion? Look at the Sandy Hook censorship. The mods showed their true colors there.

And if you like your profile on this site, I wouldn't start making threads about it, you'll most likely be ridiculed, put down, and banned.

The only thing saving this site is the posters, even then the good ones are dropping like flies, and there almost always banned.

Hmmm...


EDIT

Also I want to add I really liked your link! Even one of my favorite posters (ProtoplasmicTraveler) made a drop by. And guess what! He's banned too.

Sounds too complicated of a scheme for the CIA.

Too many moving parts.

They can barely even smuggle drugs across the border.


No kidding right? Especially the current CIA. I mean, did you see that guy that got nabbed in Russia? With the wigs and the compass, and offer letter, etc.? I mean jeez...if he really is CIA, what a Mickey Mouse op that was!
What's next, are we using lemon water to send invisible ink messages?

I want a raise! Oh wait...15% of zero is still....damn...


Gaz i am making slightly more than ATS ATM, I will up you for your comments in the Star Wars thread, as they were quite well thought out, and might have even swayed me to the SW side...."THRAWN"

So I will donate $1.00 US to the cause.

15% of $1.00 is .......... ya NVM, i wont insult your obviously high debate and intellectual skills by trying to buy you off, your worth much more than I can afford, even offering $10,000 US for your comments in that thread would be insulting.

I may think "that guys an idiot" or " wow that girl is really smart" but it lets me think.

Whether its a breaking news story, a good conspiracy, ancient myth or some great "where are these photos taken?" thread it gets us to use our brain.

I can only watch so much porn lol...


I believe that is spelled most often in browser histories as " PRON" BTW.

ATS is what you make of it. It's a community, if you wish to engage with it on that level. It's a discussion board or information portal if that is what you need for it to be. It is the sort of thing that ends up fitting the expectations that we, ourselves, impose upon it.

Want it to be informative? It is. Infinitely and amazingly informative. If one looks and discerns for the nuggets of brilliance.

Want it to be emotionally fulfilling? I certainly can be that too. I've been touched by ATS members more times than I can count - a few of those times literally to tears. I've made some lifelong friends here.

Want it to be an awful experience where one can feel crucified and martyred - and get all of the Internet infamy that goes along with being able to go to certain other forums with an "I got banned from ATS...." badge hanging around your neck? It can be that as well, if one tries hard enough.

It's all about expectation sets... whether or not we enjoy our time here or not. If we expect it to stay as magical for us, after years of daily visits, as it was to us during that first visit? We're going to end up disappointed. As the old saying goes, familiarity breeds contempt. All of us go through that particular growth pain here... we all have those moments of burn out where it seems like ATS isn't what it used to be. Truth is that's kind of right. It's not as it was when we found it... It's better. New voices and new ideas appear every single day... we just get too jaded and subjective to accept it as the way of things.

Asking what we think ATS is is actually a very poignant question because it allows us to take a step back and analyze whether or not we're looking at ATS in the right way to maximize our enjoyment of the site. Do we expect it to be what it's not? Do we contribute in a way that matches our own expectations? Are we part of the problem or part of the solution?

In the end, ATS is a website where we all choose to spend at least part of our time. For some it's an office, for others a living room. It's words on a screen that come to matter to us on some level, for better or for worse. Some of us think of it as a playground, others treat it like an outhouse. But for me...

This is home.


I couldn't have said it better myself!

Ats to me is a place where one can find a wealth of general knowledge at the same time one can be cut off if too much truth is revealed about certainty sensitive subjects.

How could Ats not be shadowed by disinformation agent s

It is a site where you sign up and it gives the Lizards/Aliens/Mole people your location so they know not to bother us when they try and take over.
They will know we are to clued up for any of their shenanigans and tomfoolery.
ATS is the last bastion for earth and all who live on our wonderful planet, In a thousand years the founders will be looked upon as Gods, the mods just like Jesus and the members like disciples.
