I remember back in 2010 through 2012, it was a time in which every topic on ats had 1min last reply, 25 hours a day, 8 days a week. When I say every topic, I mean every topic all the way down the list of every forum. I come back after 4 years and it seems like the only topics are current events and political matters. I came here to be on the UFO forum and all I see is 9 hours ago, December of last year October of last year as well as other forums that use to be lit up like a Christmas tree on ats
But I guess 50 mods banning 50 people per month during the course of 4 years is why to me its gone down hill from 4 years ago…I guess I can say those were the good old days when traffic was 150% up on all topics and the reply time on every subject was beyond priceless for a forum.
I don’t know what as happened in the last 4 years on this site, but I will say from the time I was here to what im seeing now, ats has gone down 83% on every field of the mega super power it once was.

The Alexa data has always been unreliable. Its numbers are only from those who have the monitor-ware installed on their computer. People who would install that are not the type to visit ATS often.
I keep coming here every day, because this is still a place where I can discuss matters which are important to me, and to the world, in depth and with people who want to do the same. It is not always easy, but there again, most things that are worth doing, are not easy to do.

We are free to discuss all other events in which large amounts of people died but not Sandy Hook? Does claiming 9-11 was a false flag (for example) hurt those who lost loved ones less than debating what happened at Sandy Hook?
The difference between 9-11 conspiracy and Sandy Hook..is that no one is denying that 9-11 happened or that the family members who lost people in that tragedy are lying and are actually actors hired by the government.
Sandy Hook parents have actually received repeated trolling...emails, calls etc. by raving conspiracy theorists accusing them of lying about their child being dead.
It is effen horrific in my strong opinion.
James Tracy, who taught a course chock-full of conspiracy theories at Florida Atlantic University, reportedly harassed parents of a Sandy Hook child, demanding proof of his death.
A Twitter troll is harassing the family of a Sandy Hook victim
www.washingtonpost.com...< br />
That actually makes a lot of sense and would explain a lot that otherwise makes little sense here on ATS...
And from the advertisers standpoint, it kills two birds with one stone.
