First I'll go to 'live' posts. Then when I like a subject I usually read every entry. Dunno why, it's like watching a film, I don't want to miss good
posts that people put effort in writing.
I often forget to check replies to my own posts. When I'm done reading, I'll leave. Very rarely do I go to 'recent' etc and I almost never go to the
follow ups, even though I flagged a thread. I mean to read them but I never do. Out of sight out of mind I reckon.
I use ATS to gauge up general opinions about breaking news or use it to read when eating [hence I'll read all posts when it is interesting].
I love that different opinions can be discussed on here as it gives me something to think about [I have sometimes changed my opinion about something
due to the excellent evidence ATS users sometimes give and which you can't find on biased websites].
However if ever certain views will one day be censored, I am outta here because the beauty of ATS is that you can have an opinion as long as you word
it in an educated way. Unfortunately censorship has crept in a little.
It seems to be ok to insult people with unpopular opinions [calling them the 'r' or the 'b' word and slag them off-because they are the 'baddies'] but
people with unpopular opinions do not have the same privilege, as their posts are often removed when doing the same, all in the name of PC-ness.
Lets keep ATS civil but diverse, it is still one of the best websites out there.
I have only one gripe about ATS though, and that is the difficulty in posting images.
I'd post far more if it was possible to do so straight from the net with 'copy and paste'.
For me [maybe I'm doing it wrong], I have to save the image on my computer, open my photo hosting website, download the image to that site, copy the
URL, then go to ATS, download it, and then I often have difficulties locating it amongst all those available pages before being able to insert into
the post. I may be a bit dense in that area but that is too much work.
[If anyone can teach me how to do it simpler I'd be much obliged
