ATS is pretty big, in fact I don't know any other conspiracy website that is as big as ATS. When you talk to someone about conspiracies, they will
know about ATS. At any given time, there's about 300 members browsing the forums. But for such a big website, you could imagine these numbers would
be much higher right?
Well, perhaps it's the time of day that I come to ATS, but another key factor I believe is fear. The fear on visiting, registering and posting on
ATS. I remember how I would -sometimes- come to ATS but avoid it because I was afraid that my activities were logged. Then I got more comfortable with
the idea and started to lurk for about 7 or so years. Eventually I muttered up my courage and registered. I decided to create a completely different
e-mail account specifically to register with ATS, and created a different persona at first because I was paranoid.
Months later, I stopped coming because my life got very busy but I came back and decided to just not care about an alt persona and not let paranoia
control me. So what if visiting ATS potentially gets logged and flags me? I live in America where freedom and liberty should exist. I should be able
to visit a conspiracy theory website without any worries right?
Anyway, this sounds pretty crazy I'm sure but going to a website called "above top secret" at one time sent chills down my spine like the
government was going to get me if I participated in it. I'm sure that there are many others that have felt this way and I think that we should just
be strong and post what we want without worrying about what the feds might think. Anyways, I thought I'd just say all of this because I dunno if I'm
alone with this and it would be great to hear if others have ever felt that way before.
ATS is amazing so don't let big brother take it away from you =)
