A little background:
So, I do spend more time on ATS than I probably should. ATS has been, and occasionally continues to be one of the best sources of "breaking
I have a new boss. He came in like a fascist tornado and destroyed my happy career space. He blocked all internet access. I can't even use google.
He also made a bunch of stupid decisions without seeking counsel, which have come to bite us in the ass, so now I am paying off his douchbaggery
through 12 hour shifts on a salary. Three jeers for arrogant cock-holsters! Hip hip..... yea, not worth it.
All of that aside, I access ATS now mainly through my phone. So, through the phone, I see names, and their subsequent posts regarding the whatevers
that ATS finds thread-worthy in the moment. I agree and disagree just as usual, but sometimes when I get home and check an ongoing thread from my PC,
I find that I agree with people I normally don't agree with. I disagree with people I usually agree with. It's strange.
I usually know a member by their avatar, just as I know RL folks by their vehicles.
Now, knowing what has only been recently evident to me, I have to ask. Would my view or opinion be swayed had I participated in a thread on my PC
where I can see avatars at a glance and know with whom I am speaking? Do our avatars have some underlying influence in how what we have written is
I'm not entirely sure one way or the other. I just wanted to throw it out there for a discussion, and see if anybody else notices similar things.
