There isn't a single day without an idiot suddenly popping up on a random thread and referring to some Atlas guy by saying incomprehensible stuff out of context like "Atlas?", "we know it's you, Atlas" or something... What the heck is that about? If that's a private joke, I gotta say it sounds terribly stupid and disrespectful to new users.

From what I've been told, Atlas was an ex-poster who was banned after threatening to kill himself. He liked to troll.

Now it seems people like to assume every other poster is him without the need for much evidence. Probably giving the real Atlas a little ego boost in the process, should he be reading.

Atlas is a potentially schizophrenic fellow who joins the forum with a new account every 1-2 weeks to talk about why the government is evil, "Pirate" is evil, and why we're all doomed. Other posts include saying he's going to kill himself, why he likes blue lights in his room, and why Bitcoin is the greatest thing since penicillin.

And he wasn't banned for claiming to kill himself. He was banned before that, I think he threatened an admin or something?

I heard Atlas shrugged and that's what got him banned.

You are in a maze of twisty little passages, all alike.
