Nothing is safe, but I was unaware anyone thought RATS meant anything different from a anything else. It's an online forum. Everything is tracked, but in everything it's good to widen the target as to obscure the real players. That's my game at least, or am I a player? Come track me, my little ponies.

Well well well what do we have here..
You know, it's possible that if the question were asked in RATS, it would get more discussion. Of course, that's all just rumor since what happens in RATS, stays in RATS, so one just can't be sure.
RATS was more mysterious when you had to pay to get in - Not that I ever did, there were ways around that...edit on 25-2-2014 by LadySkadi because: (no reason given)
People seem to be under the impression that the RATS forum is more secure than other forums, or that spies are less likely to read it.
Why do people think that? What is with the childishness?
I think a sticky at the top of RATS stating that it is really no harder for anyone from spies to LEO to Mcdonald's employees (3 things that someone could be all at once, I should add) to access than any other forum.
It just happens to not pop up in search engines, which means it is more to hide things from the general public than the alphabet boys, because it sure won't do anything for the latter.
I know you have all already thought of this, at inception, but I was wondering what the real intention is?
The original intention of RATS was a forum in which users could feel safe to post their theories, observations, stories, etc. of a conspiratorial nature or subject genre related to the AboveTopSecret.com 'Deny Ignorance' motto. Safe from web search bots and prying eyes, general chit chat should take place on BTS or even individual ATS forums.
