Ever notice no one replies to the reasonable posts?



If you post a totally ridiculous point, or spout the normal partisan talking points. You will have countless responses. But if you give a reasonable logical response or possible fix for an issue, you will get crickets.


Just a weird observation.

I've noticed.

Not for myself as I'm more an observer than a debater; but often I'll peruse a thread and see the usual back-and-forthing, and then someone comes along clear and reasonable and I quickly zip through the rest of the thread to see if anyone had anything to say about it. Most of the time? Nope. It's just ignored.

I at least star it.

If you cannot add anything to the post, then why react?

Welcome to the appendix of the internet

where it seems to serve no real purpose

The fleeting moments of connection and reverberation that it worth it

I've definitely noticed that.

It's becoming the norm to ignore the rational, well thought out reply/thread with sources and fully embracing the wierd and wonderful because it's "different" and not the "norm". I've even had people completely ignore what I've typed and just comment on HOW I've replied.

Just because we're on a conspiracy based oriented website, doesn't mean that the most simplest (and likely most boring) answer is wrong.

I think that is often the case.

There is gold in them there hills, gold I say!

I have noticed that. You are right. The posts that go over mitunae from an often questionable source get a LOT of attention.

Here, I don't notice anyone who may be paid, unless they are very new and obvious about it.

Your threads aren't silly and often in 'short stories/poetry'. I try to read them when I can.

This is timeless wisdom....www.youtube.com... www.youtube.com...

And these children that you spit on
As they try to change their worlds
Are immune to your consultations
They're quite aware of what they're goin' through
Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes

The old fading, and the new emerging. It's not the world we grew up in, the values have changed, God has left the auditorium...........

People make "witty" comments, often with the intent of humor and get the most stars and replies. These posts are entertaining at best, but are of no meaningful value, but because the members are popular they get away with it.

I always read your threads that have backbone.

If someone sounds reasonable it is against the T&C to just post something saying you agree. If I agree with a poster I often just flag and/or star and move on.

Indeed. There is reasons for that but if I explain it I will probably be perm a-banned. I have been a mod for many forums and have owned many myself...

Not saying this is happening here on ATS but for the concept of "deny ignorance" here is some links to ponder:
www.workfromhomebuzz.com...
www.paidforumposting.com...
www.dreamhomebasedwork.com...
www.postonmyforum.com...


Here, I don't notice anyone who may be paid, unless they are very new and obvious about it.


There are a few and since we know there are actually millions of dollar paid by the candidates to 'correct the record' you can never be too sure. There are several people that are almost caricatures of a partisan slave and those people are usually either paid or trolls that like to get a rise out of people.
