First let me start off by saying, this post in no way shape or form is debunking ATS's members if anything a complement. I am also not trying to
define ones ranking on the forum this is just how I see it. I will break the different type of ATS'rs into categories.
Category: 0 (the morons)
These people are the annoying people who come to the forum for a day only to post in the UFO section calling every one nuts. These people are usually
banned right away and serve no purpose on the forum.
Category: 1 (The brains)
These are the people that make the most sense to me. They think logically and drawl well thought out answers with good resources. This would include
documents released by the government, well established news sources, books by authors who make sense. The majority of the more radical people seem to
out number these individuals.
Category: 2 (Average Joe)
This type of ATS'er is usually a lurker, and has an open mine to things. One who reads the forums and takes every thing with a grain of salt. They
are usually not die hard believers in some of the stuff but only are here because they enjoy reading what the people here have to say. Category 2
makes up for a lot of the forum.
Category: 3 (The Fearful)
These people are the ones who have to little of an open mind. They tend to take what they read to seriously, just in my opinion. These people do
however make a well thought out case and I certainly respect what they believe and what they have to say. These people seem as if they were
enlightened by what they believe and that’s great, I just don't agree that they are right.
Category: 4 (The Debunkers)
These people are fun to see in action because there so good at what they do. If you post a picture they can usually tell if it was photoshoped or not.
I think without these people the fearful would all be in bunkers right now with gas mask on, (please do not take offense to that) Please understand a
debunker is not one who flames the whole theory all together. They are the ones who spend a lot of time researching and inspecting.
Category: 5 (The extremist)
Well this is hard for me to define. It would not be fair for me to name these people because personally I think they need to chill out and look around
them once. All I can say about this group is, lay off the David Ike books for awhile and relax.
I personally like to put my self in with the average Joe because; I love to read this stuff. It’s very interesting some times it can be like reading
a comic book others times it’s like watching the history channel. One thing is for sure this is an awesome site and if it were not for the people
who make it interesting no matter what they believe it wouldn’t be the site it is.
So I leave you with what category are you in and why?
