I agree that this place used to be a lot more cutting edge, polite, accepting, and just...well...different. Now its becoming overwhelmingly hostile, predictable, repetative, and mundane, and what I dislike most about this is my reaction to it. Maybe this is ignorant, but I blame the "FaceBookification" of ATS, at least in part.

This is the reason I never contribute my own threads.
When did saying "because of the high standards of the moderators" start to mean you worship someone as a God!
This kind of post gets stars, pointless responses that did not even have an understanding of what was said. Most of the time derogatory one liners, disrespect and personal attacks.
I think people are not contributing anymore because of constant abuse and no moderators can keep up with the amount of it now.

Several indicators of problems other than what been noted....
You will see a person make a post that gets no star response. Another better known poster comes in just a few posts later and says basically the same thing and gets all stared up.

My question: What has happened to make it so lame here on ATS lately?
