Nice...

So basically you want to pay $5 a month to talk about pedophilia.

Nothing sounds wrong with this to you?

Once upon a time there were three pages a day on the new topics page. There used to be a lot more people posting on here than there is now.
Now your topic can be on the NEW page for over a day. It used to be on page two within a few hours. New topics were created in a constant stream.
I've been a member under different names since 2007.

Why do some people have to open their snotty mouth/s?

The site is fine as it is... now that all the rubbish has been banned from here anyway.

I've been contributing member for a long time and I agree.

I think the value for value business model has been very successful and although many people haven't come forward I'm more than willing to bet that a lot of silent readers and former members would be willing to participate.

Especially if ATS made a statement claiming to end all corporate sponsorship and allow the members to be what keeps the site alive.

It's a very attractive business model for the critical thinking audience. It adds a bit of authenticity for what the site represents as well.

Now that I think of it.... this would essentially be like a rebranding but with the same logo and design as before but with a new culture change/ shift.

The donations can remain anonymous so that the moderators and members who contribute are unaware of each other in order to prevent any conflict of interests in moderation and moderation choices.

See... what people tend to forget is that a lot of the rubbish is what attracted most of the contributors in the first place and then over time many of those contributors evolved from the rubbish into more serious topics and areas of research.

For instance...

You may come here for 911 or aliens but evolve into archeology and geography.

Or you may come here for Flat Earth (not really) or a NASA conspiracy and volve into an area of research that consist of more philosophy and actual science in an effort to debunk/ further understand specific topics.

I'll pay to watch him ^^^^ violate posting rules.


I would pay to watch you watching him violate posting rules but I think we would need some kind of sliding scale, I'd maybe go to a dollar a month at my level.

Sorry I won't pay to be abused. I'm a liberal, democrat who fully supported Hillary for president and I've spent the most horrific year on this site because of my views. People said terrible things because of my political view.
The standards are too low to even consider payment for membership.
The management did nothing to stem the abuse as a matter of fact in some cases contributed to it though I never reply to posts by them unless it's benign.
So no. I would just leave. I come on less and less anyway since the election.
I just can't tolerate the ignorance we're supposed to deny. And I don't see much value here.

I don't ever get those... I've never had them... But I know if your mouse just nicks a side or above ad... It will open-autoplay.

I move around those so they don't.

Don't try to pull the victim card.

I wouldn't expect anything less when your supporting the mainstream narrative on an alternative forum typically used for debating and skepticism.

I'm not sure anyone should expect that they should be coddled.

SO what? People say terrible things about my race or etc... grow a thicker skin or stop frenetically going from thread to thread proclaiming youre right and everyone else is deplorable and evil. I mean goddamn... are you a masochist? You keep coming somewhere where you feel youre bashed on but youre lily white in the scenario.. so go somewhere else that will be all what you want to hear. There are plenty of them. WHen you crap in someones house, dont be oh so offended when its smeared in your face to teach you a lesson.

I come here BECAUSE people will disagree with me. In real life I dont get that much. FOr the most part Ive been argued with here in a good way... and I can trade shots if Im feeling ornery... but I never spew the really foul hatred I see out of you and a few of your circle jerk buddies. I cant stand half the garbage on the right, but half of it I like. Im not a republican though I voted for Trump for my own nefarious reasons. Yet... I get thrown in that basket by you oh so tolerant folks of the party of tolerance. THATS why youre being walked away from.. and that behavior si why I walked away from my party a while back. You line towers are in for a rude awakening when youre forced to be civil... or completely ignored.

The slackers form of mind control is the easiest. Its repetition. Good thing the majority of ATSers are immune to those pathetic attempts.

So you want to pay for ATS to be a propaganda mouthpiece? That's a surefire way for ATS to loose credibility and become another "mainstream" website that has sold its soul...


Ats has no credibility, who exactly do you think takes it seriously? A government? The average Joe in the street? Haha.


But, to the op.

Try reddit, it's free and you can post what you want. It has just as much credibility as ats.

I've certainly preferred this site without all the 'Trans' & 'gay' Topics which used to take up half the board! I and any others here don't want the board cluttered with that.

I would become a financially-supporting member if they brought back the ability to block a forum from the "Recent" feed. That's worth a few bucks monthly to me.
Ads? Don't see em. I decided not to

I am also willing to bet that others would be willing to contribute as well.


So in the interests of free speech you would like to see access to information limited for those who don't pay?

That doesn't seem right.

If this falls on deaf ears you could always take your $4.99 and a bunch of other peoples $4.99 (good luck with that!) and start up your own discussion forum where anything goes. Maybe you could call it 5chan.
