I have to agree that Jesse's contributions to the original thread were rather innocuous. Actually I have found that to be the case with pretty much all the drive-by guests. Has anything truly revealing ever been imparted here by the special guests? I haven't seen it.

I watched Jesse's broadcast from the Denver airport, as I believe that place holds special significance in this new age we've arrived at. There's too much to ignore there. I came away with no new information and Jesse accepted everything at face value. Eh! Waste of my time.

If any of these people want to really contribute, there should be nothing holding them back here. This would be the place to let it fly. Most here are their supporters. The world outside ATS thinks they're whack jobs. So what better place than ATS to let it all hang out?

i'd say give it time. Jesse will settle into a more defined position within ATS.

ETA - i hope.

It's just my opinion, but I think we need to realize that ATS is NOT just a site for us "enlightened" people to come and discuss certain topics. It is an investment/business venture for Mark and Bill and a site for people to be entertained as well.

Not only do I like to post and read interesting topics posted by the members, I also come here to be entertained. I watch the videos produced by ATS' video partner, I listen to the radio shows, I enjoy the art that members share and I enjoy the special guests and such that come around to join us....like Jessie Ventura.

( I really liked the ATS games they use to have here! Come on Mark-Bill, give us a game!
)

So I don't mind seeing an advert here and there and I don't mind JV plugging his site or twitter if the big guys allow it. Hell, I am never asked to pay for any services on ATS so I do click on some of the ads just to help support ATS in any way I can.

Thats' my two cents and I hope that we can enjoy what we get on ATS without being too critical. I have yet to find a site that comes close to what ATS offers.

A "Thread" I can accept but "Threads" is starting to be a pattern IMO.

Peace

I'm not challenging you here at all, but you have more than once mentioned these explanations have been previously said and repeatedly.

I have looked in the B&B forum and Slayer's thread about the new ATS, but I keep seeming to miss these sort of announcements.

I s there a thread or some posts explaining this collaboration with Ventura, and some of the other coming tweaks to the new version of ATS that you could direct us too?
Like in a more central "location" on ATS, so we don't have to ask questions that have been "repeatedly" explained?

Maybe I just haven't looked hard enough, and if that is the case, I apologize.

I have seen the OTG forum, but it doesn't really explain much and the threads sort of follow the same format the OP describes.

I don't really mind Jesse's new affiliation with ATS, his presence and shout-outs alone are sure to increase traffic at least marginally regardless of our opinions on his content, and our forum growing can only serve to increase the collective knowledge available here. I don't really mind ads on ATS either, more money is more potential.

My, you certainly are very fast to jump to significant conclusions with an absolute complete lack of information.


If I ever change my sig quote, I'll use this one.
I called dibs so it's reserved as my backup.

Wow. Less than a week and we have high-demands on a busy person who has a self-imposed disconnect from "the grid."




Is Jesse paying for the space or is ATS paying Jesse for his notoriety?

As has been previously said, there are no financial considerations for the collaboration with Jesse and Ora.TV. None. It's simply the very early beginning of an experiment in collaboration between two like-minded entities: AboveTopSecret.com and Jesse Ventura.



Are ATS members giving Jesse our work only to be used as his own?

Anything that comes from here and appears on one of his videos will give proper credit back to ATS.




It seems that one or the other is at play...at least to me. I sadly am starting to lose any respect I once held for Jesse as it seems (maybe only to me) that he is capitalizing on the Doom-Porn market and using ATS as a soap box.

My, you certainly are very fast to jump to significant conclusions with an absolute complete lack of information.





Jesse! Please bring it because you are in a position to and you've been given the platform of ATS.

As has been said previously, and often, he is not in a position to make regular visits to ATS, nor have we asked him to. He will, his assistants will, but in this very early beginning of an experiment in collaboration between us and him and his team, it's best that we see how we stand together before we walk and before we run.


I merely posted my concerns and opinions as a member WITHOUT insult. I would ask to be treated in kind from ownership.

My information is from threads without substance from a source that claims substance.

Thank you for the clarification of the who pays/benefits who question tho. This for me is very important.

Peace

Dr. Michael Aquino
His was by far the best. Lots of good information in areas that I"m interested in.

If Dan Aykroyd is ever a guest ... there will be no question about the amount of helpful and interesting information that will be presented. (yes .. this is yet another hint for the admin who are undoubtedly reading this thread ..
)

Kudos to you for calling them out! I lost all respect for Ventura when he did not answer my question on the AMA. It was on the first page, he just plain out did not answer it. It appears that ATS is using his likeness for attracting new members, rather than the substance and quality threads we true ats'ers are looking for. Well, star and flag OP, and lets hope they dont 404 this thread like the others.

To be honest I expected a 404 at the beginning but gave ATS the benefit of the doubt and that we could Discuss this with fairness.

Thanks.

Peace

hmmm... Complaining about threads of non-substance, in a thread of non-substance. We have American journalists being kidnapped in the Ukraine with a full blown crisis that could put the world on the brink of war, a corrupt oligarchy ruling over the U.S and running roughshod over civil liberties, bankers using debt and unethical lending practices to enslave the human race, a media that is complicit in these activities and pushes the degradation of morality on us every single day, and here we are concerned about Jesse Ventura and his role with ATS.

Substance. This thread lacks it.

It all comes down to making money. Jesse is an entertainer and he wants to promote his tv shows, books or whatever else he is peddling. ATS gets a B level celebrity as a member, which brings in new members and attracts more advertisers. It's a win/win for both parties.

It reminds me of the old Wu-Tang classic from my teenage years. C.R.E.A.M - Cash Rules Everything Around Me

Hmmm...The substance is in the title and OP.

Your misdirection using topics of anything other than what Jesse has addressed leaves me questioning your motive.

I have never ignored the issues you addressed but you seem to have ignored my OP.

Peace

I didn't ignore your OP. I read it in it's entirety. What I stated was not an attempt at misdirection at all. It seemed like a perfectly clear reply to me, but maybe I went overboard. What I'm trying to say is:

There are bigger issues to talk about than Jesse Ventura and what he is doing on ATS.

You are accusing the guy of posting threads that have no substance, meanwhile this thread is getting all kinds of attention while threads of real substance are being ignored. I was trying to point out the irony in that.

This thread needs a crossbar armlock followed by a quick toss over the top rope.

Agreed and thanks!

I believe we are on the same track. Maybe Jesse can chime in? I see that you support him and that's ok.

But why?

Is anybody really SURE its Jesse responding, starting and replying? We're adressing this like they are from him...but Im doubtful. I think its not...and we are speaking as though its him personally...

Absolute nonsense.

Is this how you people treat guests? Seriously.

How pathetic.



Thread closed with furious anger.

I've reopened this long to ask 2 questions (I don't need the answers they're questions designed to make you think)...

1. Who the HELL do some of you people think you are?

2. WHY do you make such ridiculous assumptions about ATS and our guests?

DISGUSTED.
