I hear ya.
Wish I could help on the MH 17 angle but it's outside of my field.
My pet projects are the realm of MK and NWO...I'm pretty much one tracked on those even though I sometimes venture into UFO's, social issues of a
certain breed and the occasional "Reptilian" thread for fun and giggles.
There is a wealth of speculation on so many avenues of thought, and so many people at varied levels of personal and professional development that it
sometimes gets a little infuriating for me too. As they say, "grab a shovel....this crap never ends."
I guess what I'm getting at here is - in this thread alone - there have been some very valuable contributors here at ATS participating in this
discussion. I'm only saying this because I've been here a while and I kinda know a bit about who's who and wanted to let you know that - despite the
apparent "standoffish" attitude you might be experiencing by some of us - it's meant in good fatih. Kind of an informal vetting and welcome to the
community type thing.
Not to drop names or anything but holy hell dude....Phage is here participating.
Do you know what I would give to have some of his insights and perspectives on one of my stupid threads?
I'm telling ya. Seriously dude. You've got some good people here.
You just have to understand that we - like you - are tired of shoveling b.s. day in and day out....it's nothing personal, and please understand that.
We're just trying to hold our community together and keep a higher standard that the majority of other sites out there that deal with these types of
Hell, I've been digging for what...twenty or some odd years now?
Maybe 9 here on board?
It's a slow boat to China sometimes....but the key is patience.
Answers don't just fall in our laps the majority of the time.
It's easy to lose sight of the Big Picture when dealing with small details....some people have been known to completely lose their bonkers when things
don't move fast enough. Think of it as a professional health hazard and take proper precautions.
That's where hanging out and being social with the rest of the membership comes into play.
Seriously. I can not stress the importance of just slacking off and hanging out every so often enough.
Yes, there's a lot of anger and perspective combat on site right now....but underneath that maelstrom of chaos - there are good people here who are
genuinely interested in your perspectives and value what you will bring to the board in official CT capacity.
It's a hard paddle upstream, but we're all in the same boat....Relax.
Focus on the positives and don't be afraid to drop your defenses.
Head up chin up.
We're all in this together.
