We had a new member from this group join today and begin spamming the forums with simple links to their site, with no comment or prior permission. As a matter of course, when this happens, we trash the thread and warn the member. Since this user made repeated posts promoting their site, we trashed all threads and banned the member account. Now, if there was any doubt as to the potential legitimacy of this group, it can be reveal in the brief e-mail exchange I just enjoyed: This e-mail was spammed several times using the site contact form:

SUBJECT: ATS CONTACT: MacKiller - Moderator - AboveTopSecrete.com To: Gray, Simon Subject: MacKiller Moderator AboveTopSecrete.com Why was the International Space Agency banned from your forum after we complied with your request? Why was the updated post censored from your forum after we complied with your request? Why was our account wrongly disabled??!! We are going to contact the owner of this board, and lodge a formal complaint! We did nothing to warrant this harsh, and unprovoked action!
I responded with:

Given the size of our community (2,000+ posts every day and 80+ new members every day) we react quickly when new members post unauthorized links. Your action was against the terms of service you agreed to when you joined. Your first action when you joined was in violation of the terms you agreed to. As such, you were banned. This same action is applied to every new member who joins, then spams with promotional links.
Their true colors reveal in this response:

SUBJECT: Re: CENSORSHIP Re: ATS CONTACT: MacKiller - Moderator - AboveTopSecrete.com We did not "SPAM"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We did not list "Promotional Links"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We presented legitimate news, and information specific to the post topic of Space & Aviation & Technology!!! The links we provided were to articles and websites which supported this scientific information and efforts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SPAM is the EVIL words of a growing world dictatorship which will soon be branding 666 on peoples foreheads!!! Anyone who presents legitimate information or news which others want to silence & censor it is branded as "SPAM"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We did nothing WRONG!, we did not SPAM!, and we did not post any Promotional Links! We posted historic and important information about the present efforts and goals of the International Space Agency Organization, and you CENSORED IT!!!! You clear and simple CENSORED and then Wrongly BANNED our Nobel & Legitimate Organization, and in effect have SILENCED our VOICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! EVIL! EVIL! EVIL! It is now clear your message board, like most, is just another secret front for the U.S. Government Disinformation Machine and Controlled by the Communist Media!!!!!!!!!!!!! PISS ON YOU! YOU NAZI SCUM! YOU COMMUNIST FREAKS!
Wasn't that nice? So, I sent this in hopes that it might calm him down:

My response to your concerns were polite and direct. I would expect a "legitimate organization" to respond in kind, with similar manners and professionalism. As such, the nature of your response has certainly reveal the true aspect of the organization you represent. Good day.
Just another day in our giant can of mixed nuts.

Did they just call you a Nazi and a Communist within the same line? That's funny.

I propose we band together and send SO some very expensive and fancy "adult beverages" for the emails like this he has to deal with.
SO, you have the patience of a saint.

Thanks for the info SkepticOverlord. I think you did the best thing, and showed respect. The best thing for everyone to do is not contribute or read anything these type of people have to say from now on...sounds like they just discredited themselves! Now I know that if I ever run across their site to just ignore it...if anything...thanks for the heads up!

Notice how he kept referring to himself as we?

I wonder how many people he has crammed into his brain?

It really was not his fault, the VOICES made him do it

The wonderful thing is, since ATS is so heavily indexed by Google, their little spam-scam attempt and tirade will be picked up quickly, so that anyone doing a search on them will likely find this thread, and realize this group's true nature.

Hrm... I don't recall being the upset one here. And is that a threat posed as a reference from Rambo?

So, did these people just a post a link and that's it? They are trying to make it sound like their posts included content. Or is that they took the same content and repeated it over and over in different threads?

SO, if they contact you again, why not forward this to them, him, Jim, whatever:

They posted simple links in multiple threads. Their first posts as an ATS member. Against the TOS. First offense usually gets a warn and private U2U... but we've seen these types of spammer before... and in this case, a ban was needed to stop the spam.

It is now clear your message board, like most, is just
another secret front for the U.S. Government Disinformation
Machine and Controlled by the Communist Media!!!!!!!!!!!!!


After reviewing their documents, you see that they are heavily involved with the US government. So, how come they have such a strong relationship with the government if they are so opposed to it?

BTW, here is the URL to their "official" board:

http:// p201.ezboard.com/binternationalspaceagency

Maybe ATS should try a little spam and see how they like it...

EDIT: Took out the link, don't want to give them the pleasure of ATS linking to them.

They charge $30 to become a member!!
