But then maybe people would get the message and the site could return to a site that had serious and intelligent discourse, robust debates but people are civil to one another.
Sadly drama, rudeness and hate bring far more folks through the door and make ATS far more money so enforcing the T&C will never happen.
There was a time that after a fierce debate with an opponent, you'd thank each other, apologize if you were out of line and have a chat and a joke.
But then ATS used to be a true community too as opposed to just a site with random members and people just here pushing an agenda and political trolling.

First and foremost. I like reading the ATS forums. However... I do not like it enough to give it money. It's a forum. Forums SHOULD be free.
ATS is free.
