Thanks for the replies, please bear with me as i am on my mobile and posting isn't the easiest thing to do.

As I stated I could try and make peoples mini profiles unidentifiable and post some images of people who seem to have made a high quantity of posts in a short period. But i will wait until a moderator pops in and gives me clearance to do so. Please note i am not claiming every new member who posts a lot is a potential suspect as I am aware that their is a hardcore bunch of posters here who must live in front of their PC's.

Does a bear go to the bathroom in the woods?

I believe that the scope of your extent of disinformation folks on ATS is lacking in scope. Rather, I think that the main scheme is far more subtle. Meaning the agents work in tangential side shows. For example, I and 20 others saw a low, slow and silent triangle move over Laramie one June evening in 1998. It was either our craft or it was an ET craft. Hundreds of other sightings of triangles have been reported in the US and UK over the last two plus decades. I investigated an excellent sighting of two in tandem formation in 1985.

ATS has a fairly active Aircraft Projects forum. Some good honest members, and some ringers, I'm sure. Many of those enthusiasts like to keep abreast of the latest tidbit of data about what is in the works by the various aerospace industries around the world. Back when the F-117A stealth fighter was being tested, some of these guys went wild over blurry pictures that seemed to show the first views of the top secret craft. The speculations were endless and continued long after the craft was revealed because they were fully operational in squadrons for a decades before they were officially acknowledged.

What you will find is that threads in that forum are mostly about craft that use air for lift and jets or rockets for propulsion. In a word, conventional craft.

I'm not aware of any serious threads there (other than mine) that discuss the reality of the triangles (let alone UFOs). They simply don't want to discuss the issue with any intensity. They would rather discuss the latest news about the F-22 or the F-35 but never a serious discussion of what might be the consequences, flight characteristics and capabilities of a strange, huge triangle craft that as I've said many times over on ATS is the greatest war weapon and the greatest means of locomotion since the invention of the wheel.

I'm sure there at least five levels of dis/misinformation specialists that work their influences on ATS from sources the world over from small to large industries to various small to large governmental agencies each working their own programs. Maybe even the ETs have a propaganda input.

It's my opinion, one of the surest signs of desperation and symptoms of delusion is when someone throws the "Disinfo Agent" card.

It's my opinion anyone pointing fingers and calling anyone "Disinfo Agent", needs take a deep breath, hold it for a long time, and step away from Conspiracy Theory sites for at least one solid 7-day week.






I assure you I am not desperate or delusional, I am just making an honest observation.

What does it matter?

What do the (hypothetical) "paid disinfo agents" matter...most conspiracy theorists fall for disinfo IN BIG STYLE which is dispersed by very big and known websites and radio-shows.

I could also give you a list of so called "UFO researchers" etc. people who spread the biggest nonsense, some with a proven and admitted government background. VERY KNOWN names. Obviously I won't mention names...but if you have eyes to see and ears to hear.....just saying. Also..do you think that certain websites do NOT have an agenda?

Say...a website is making a case that the 9/11 attacks were made using holographic projections and "hired actors". You never thought that there is an agenda behind doing this? Or do you think they make up those stories just for fun?

Just saying, rather than frantically looking for forum members who allegedly are disinfo agents..why not just open your eyes and look at the disinfo WHICH IS PLAIN IN YOUR FACE??

The above, to me, bespeaks of an anachronistic view and understanding of modern computing.

While some here might needs sit down in front of something with vacuum tubes and punch cards just to say "Hello World", or, sit down in front of a glowy screen on a desk, the reality of modern computing is quite very readily MOBILE.

People can access ATS from near anywhere on the planet using their phones, laptops, tablets, or whatever device they may have.

There is no requirement for anyone to sit anywhere in one place all day long to post frequently.

There's also this little thing called TABBED Browsing.
Anyone working (on their mobile device) throughout the day, at any time of the day, can quite readily switch to an active tab already logged into ATS, refresh the page, and respond to material of any interest to them and be back to work, or whatever other online activity in a matter of seconds, or minutes.

The nature of mobile computing is only getting more complex, and accessible.
10 years from now, there will be a demographic of people who are only offline when they are sleeping, and 10 years from that, we may have the ability to remain online in our dreams.

Yes there are disinfo agents and you can spot them a mile away.

They show up when their is a controversial event. And invariably support the official story as new members, claiming extraordinary credentials and or inside knowledge.

Their syntax tends to be military doublespeak with plenty of insults and use of NLP techniques.

They favor macho avatars or military insignia's.

They disappear when found out or the event runs it's course.

Of course these are generalizations but something I've noticed.

This might help as well.....

I am well aware of the peddlers of disinfo outside the realms of ATS. I am just noticing a trend of new members here who must be posting continuously.

The way i see it is they either,

a) Have a lot of spare time outside of work.

b) Do not work

c) Have no family (my Mrs is constantly moaning about the time I spend reading threads)

Or

d) Paid to spend their time not only here, but around other conspiracy forums also.


Maybe I see things too cut and dry/black and white, I don't know but, personally I smell a rat

Please do not patronise me as I am well aware that members have the ability to post from many platforms, anywhere, anytime. I was merely using it as an example of how it must consume all their time.

You seem awfully defensive about this subject. Have I touched a nerve?

OP, No.

There are no disinfo agents on ATS,

the members of ATS spread enough disinfo with their nonsense (ie. OMG A ROCK ON MARS) so that nobody needs pay someone to "debunk" anything.

I find it really funny (literally) that when someone starts to debunk a thread there are a minority of members who suspect the "debunker" must be being paid.

From my perspective its like you only believe intelligent people would post stuff that makes sense on ATS if they are being paid.

for example

"he is intellectually dominating me in this debate about the life force of the martian rock....."

sooooooooooo.......

"OMG HE MUST BE A DISINFO AGENT.... he is being paid to say that is just a rock by the powers that be to cover up the fact i have found life on Mars"......

not that he's just a guy who happens to know more about you do on the subject and has a little common sense.

I've seen a triangle before, fly silently over my head in the dead of night.....with a blinking FAA light underneath. I believe it is the TR-b3 craft. Definitely man made. I haven't noticed any reticence to discuss it. I do, however, notice that people aren't interesting in thinking that it is a man made craft. However, I know what I've seen, and I'm pretty sure that aliens do not bother with FAA lights on their ships.

OP, I do believe that there are paid trolls, disinfo agents, and plenty of Obama "Cyber Warriors" on all forums. Paid posters are not uncommon. I first noticed them years ago on financial message boards, urging people to invest in certain stocks...which summarily tanked a few days later, and then the poster would disappear.

You have to expect that any poster is one of three things: A paid poster, somebody who has a definite opinion on certain subjects and will post a lot on it, or the unpaid occasional poster who posts when they have the time and the inclination.

I look forward to the challenge. It is nothing new. If they are paid, I'm gonna make them earn their money. If not, I look forward to a spirited debate.
