You're quite correct about the change to useless politics and away from high strangeness. Sadly I think that's a generational thing. The yutes don't have any interest in nor curiosity about topics dealing with high strangeness because frankly, they don't believe in anything. Further, because they aren't very bright and don't have any depth of experience, they focus on US politics, an issue of awesome stupid.

It is an election year, which generally causes lots and lot (especially this election) political thread about controversial candidates.
As far as Dallas goes,
It is big news.
It is a big deal.
It would generate lots of threads I would think.
It is the ebb and flow of ATS.
Today, elections and social strife.
Tomorrow, riots and nuclear war,
That's just how ATS rolls.

What annoys me more is the click bait threads copied and pasted right from the yahoo home page.
Maybe they should do away with stars and flags so people don't have any incentives to post worthless spam articles to get their stats up.
