Right wing is political. I gotcha:


BIASBIASBIASBIAS

*political post* *political post*


..

even.


Anyways...you create what you sow. And many of us don't like being stuck in this position so..STOP IT.



That was one example, I'm more centrist/slightly left, but I'm not debating that now. Should I post examples of left-wing butthurt to make you feel better too?

Argh! I cannot take it any more

I very rarely post.

right wing echo chamber nonsense


You damn hypocrite. You nasty liberal. You non-contributor.

Why didn't you post this in the rant forum? Why don't you take the site back by overwhelming us with the sort of material you appreciate?

But how could a "dozen or so" members amass thousands and thousands of stars and flags?

Because they've been at it for a very long time, and have lots of "friends".

Guilty conscience, xuen?



Not the least bit guilty conscience.

and then who will I take the piss out of if you take away all my favourite political contributors?

I will literally have nothing left to live for if I cannot at least point out how strong the delusion is with this one, at least once per day.

Don't you want me to be happy?

I'll take the liberty of speaking for the entire community.

I'm their elected leader.

No we don't want you to be happy.

Sure! I dig a good conspiracy, but that's not what I'm venting about. I'm venting about silly click bait star collectors.


Perhaps stars and flags are detrimental to a quality forum?

Shouldn't we all be posting for the sake of good discussion and worthy content?

Stars and flags may be appealing to the worst parts of us.

Do we really need little ego boosts in order to enjoy each others conversation?

My stars, flags, applauses, etc could be set to zero for all it matters.

Realize of course that no one is forcing you to go to the individual political forums and read the threads there.

There are many, many different forums here on ATS that have NOTHING to do with politics.

Go there. Problem solved.

The stars and flag system is something I actually agree with and it's a big part of the site

Sure, I realize that. But when you visit the site, the front page is dominated by these posts. Any new visitor will be confronted with that, and either will click away, or more political "activists" will be drawn to the site. Either way, the spirit of ATS is changing.

It been done changed when everyone stopped posting about the galatix federation of light, HAARP, and the latest entity someone channeled.

I did actually enjoy some of those readings even though I didn't believe many of them.

I haven't read a RA post recently either

All the really good philosophy people disappeared for some odd reason

I understand what you are saying and I do apologize for contributing to the problem you speak of.

I'm truly sorry. ATS used to be something different. ATS used to be a site where facts mattered and where research/learning was more important than blind obedience to political ideology and ignorance.

Again, I'm sorry.

Please forgive us.

You love generating posts on a large number of topics, often with enticing titles.

And you said that you liked the star and flag system.

You must admit it was a fair question.

But maybe you are just a chatterbox with many interests.

I'm just interested in control loops...and punishment/ reward systems are a control loop.

ATS used to be different. Wish it could be the way it once was.

The OP is right.
