Hi everyone

I just have a small question. What happened to this site??? I used to come here for the laughs, strange stories, information on obscure subjects and all the little things that made this place unique. But now it all political crap with Trump... 18 posts showed up on "live" when i clicked it. Is there no mystery left? Nothing?

Nothing new in Antarctica?
No strange military operations happening locally?
No Ufo's?

Please come back , I need the Old ATS.

I know. This used to be a site reflecting the name Top Secret.
Now it is just political news bashing.

I've seen stories about UFO's go tho the HOAX bin.... with about 1000 times more credibility as some political stuff that they allow.

It's a ploy.

The same thing has happened on other conspiracy websites. Maybe there is a mass hypnosis thing going on where everyone feels overwhelmingly compelled to focus their thoughts only on Trump. Perhaps THAT is the conspiracy...

The "family" took it over.

Sad really. You'd think their energy would be better spent building him a temple out of their love somewhere...

It's a mystery where the mystery went on this site.

Maybe its a conspiracy! The TPTB are trying to take over ATS by getting everyone interested in politics

There is a conspiracy into this somewhere. Our government is accomplishing us getting sick of Conspiracy sites because of all the bickering about politics.

Ditto my friend.
I used to check this site several times a day up until the whole primary elections.

I got sick of people trash talking each candidate and each other.

UFO posts always seem to be thrown in the HOAX bin because it has a link to Secure t*** you know what, or a new member posts it and couldn't find it on the search engine and the thread is closed.

Oh My kingdom for a really good UFO post that lasts more than a page. A time travel or good ghost post would be nice too. (That has enough teeth to last more than a page)

Thanks for bringing it up.

I posted a thread on the doomsday seed vault not long ago. In it I posted a video of someone taking an inside tour of it to describe how it works and what u would expect to find in there.

5 flags and a couple stars.

Like seriously am finding the Abovetopsecret.com has been more like politicalmudpit (not sure if a site exists like that).

Topics such as aliens, conspiracies, advanced technology and ancient civilizations, fragile earth and hidden world agendas have been my go too.

Even I have been falling into the mud pit but it is so sad that politics can push people into researching things this site is not intended to be used for. Of course if Trump presidency leads to disclosure of aliens..then by all means throw the mud around until politics proves UFOS exist.

Maybe there should be a subsidiary site for political subjects instead?

What good I see about all these politic threads is real news...ot so much fake news. I also think it is more about being informed than disinformation and maybe that is why there is a pouring of news threads. Just my thoughts. (Edited)

Conspiracy theory became more politicized again after 9-11 (as it did after other events, such as the Kennedy and King assassinations.) Many who were not already familiar with the nomenclature and history of conspiracy (both theory and fact) learned what a false flag was for the first time. That then expanded to things like Sandy Hook, etc.

Then conspiracy theory at the same time became far more mainstream, with declining trust for government institutions and both major political parties. Then that extended to things like scientific consensus. In effect, paranoia and conspiracy theory are now mainstream, on all sides, and the most powerful locus of those discussions is politics, because it is the most divisive among the various topics of conspiracy theory.

Not dipping my toes into whether that's a good or a bad thing, but there's your explanation. (In part, at least.) And there's likely no going back.

Peace.

How about making some threads then?

I mean it's not that hard to do. People do it all the time. Even I've been known to do it upon occasion.

You want ATS to go back to the "good ol' days"? I was here for much of the "good ol' days". This is better. More people from all over the world.

Hey, I get it, American politics suck. I live here, and I agree with you!

More UFO threads? Great, get to writin', and at the very least, I'll read it. Aliens in Antarctica, or Nazi's there? Write it, I'm there.

Be part of the change you're advocating.

Welcome to ATS! A user driven site that is now, mostly, dedicated to praising Trump and making fun of Liberals.

Once a month you might read about a UFO and other topics, like history. But mostly praising Trump and attacking Liberals.

We use to make fun of guys who drank too much colloidal silver.

Now we get our jollies arguing who is the biggest snowflake.



Memba?

I agree.

There are powerful forces that are unhappy these days and where before they could afford to be subtle now they are unleashed.

Since mods are an aspect of management, whether paid or free, my belief is that they should not be allowed to apply their personal voices to threads as a mod. In itself, that role carries an air of authority. Let them express their views by signing in as a regular member for any topic that is controversial.
