They offered us a job to partake in those endeavours. Check SO's threads if you don't believe me and tell me how that works out for you. It's a chance to strive with creativity, innit? How is that offending your artistic work when they're in fact rather supporting it?

Not whining just telling how it is, but yours is a strange reaction to been told you are been used everyway the owners can think of to make money from you

Why strange?
I don't pay anything to come here, I come for amusement, as I'm finding in this thread.

Why would I care if ATS makes money out of my posts, and how do they do that exactly?
Money from advertising? So what, pretty much every discussion/social media website does that.
Okay, I'd probably be annoyed if one of my mediocre threads was published and they got millions in royalties, but come on, be serious lol.

Nope, I think you are whining, the OP is whining, and if you are that troubled then just stop using ATS...nobody is forcing you or me.

Stars? I haven't the foggiest, as I can safely say I don't abuse the system. Certainly not to the point that is being implied in this thread.

So you are saying you are NOT the Debbie Wasserman Shultz of ATS?

This topic just made me cry, seriously.

I don't know exactly why, but it makes me wonder about a lot of things, like being the kid no one likes at school bulling , the outcast.

Wonder what gets said behind peoples backs, that sort of thing, the haves and the have nots, the popularity contests.

sad


Like why are some of the most popular people also the meanest?

And the smartest.

You actually cried because someone is whining that ATS mods can star more than once? Seriously?

I've found the thread highly amusing, different folks different strokes I guess...hope you cheer up soon.

So you people have the ability to give multiple stars and you don't even give me one?





They can also give several flags, at least my paranoid nature made me figure it out years ago when some supermod or something threads always had 7 flags since the first second

Just like people in power are usually corrupt, but the people keep worshiping them, the little peons, and the masters.

I never trusted authority figures, but I must obey their rules.

Think of all the horrible rules we have been forced to follow, and what the law makers encourage us to do to one another, how they control our lives.

They pit us against each other.

It is entertaining.

it more than that, it made me think how the world works and how we are controlled

I just know that I have written the most inane drivel and got a boatload of stars for it, whilst a post I have actually put a lot of thought into flies under the radar. The stars thing is what it is, I personally like to give a star because I like what was written. Some posts with loads of stars are just starred by someone's fan club, clear as day, others deserve the recognition.

At the end of the day, ATS is a tiny corner of the interwebs, and if stars stars in this tiny part of the information universe matter at all, it is because you make it so.

How are the ATS mods controlling anyone? We all know the T&C's and we all get smacked if we don't follow them.

I not talking about the mods, I am talking about life in general,

The topic was just a trigger, that made me sad about the way the world works

But this thread is not about life in general, it is about the mods being able to star a post more than once.
