I wanted to post my experience with the "skinwalker" and the secrets it told me but No one wants to hear that kind of stuff on ATS anymore.

It's all MAGA, MAGA, MAGA, believe me, There's also a negative side....


I don't believe that for a minute.

Every time I see a NON Political thread created that is conspiracy related, I see many poster start off with a HUGE THANK YOU to the OP for giving them a break from politics. Even if it stinks of BS (not saying your experience would be) they welcome it.

So Do it .

I look forward to it and I promise to refrain from telling you the truth about the skinwalker.

the odd, the strange, the spooky, the weird....
the crazy.... the conspiracy...
today's politics seem to have it all..
maybe those harp beams have driven us all mad...
maybe the aliens (of the other worldly kind) have found a secret weapon that turns us all into crazies...
maybe the degradation of our food source has made us all vicious monsters...
come on, in the least, you have to sit back and wonder just what in god's name is really happening.

but, ya, I agree, alot of the threads quickly turn into useless bantering.

I have been here a while and lurked long before I joined.
A few points I can throw your way:
1. This to shall pass.
2. Things haven't really changed, they just run in cycles.
3. Be the change you want to see.

I'll post about my experience but not in this thread that has turned into just another mud pit as most of the forums have turned into.

I now call ATS, Planet mud Pit. I don't expect ATS to ever return to it's glory days of "deny ignorance" ...just what the www. needs, another 4chan /pol!!

or another "stormfront" I see that influence gaining a foothold here as well. Sad because nobody seems to care!

I wish I could unsee some posters ideas, have you ever heard never talk about money, religion or politics? We are all so much alike when it comes to our fascination with different conspiracies but when we start to argue about politics things tend to get ugly quickly. I have noticed the same bitter animosity hurled towards Clinton that was thrown at Bush then Obama and now trump. I thought we here at ats were smart enough not to fall for the red/blue (same pill different color) crap that keeps us so divided.

Good luck with that


I came to ATS for similar reasons. Of late the politics have bored me, but they seep into every part of the forum.

The problems is ATS (and the themes we cover here) seems to have now become the place where political extremes coem to battle.

Sod that for a lark

The cycle is broken. I've been dropping and lurking, reading and finding rabbit holes for my own paranormal research for years. I'm talking back when Simon was still posting. Back before ATS had "Above Politics" and everyone was doing the "2nd line" stuff (that always confused me and I still see it, must have been a rule or something?)

I might have only created an account fairly recently, but that was because I got tired of seeing so much misinformation and the board I liked to visit and read going off the rails.

A lot of good people are gone from ATS these days. I remember reading a lot more from the moderators. On a hunch, I went to the main "forums" page here and looked at the list. I can't remember the last time I've seen more than 3/4 of the post in the last year or two. Maybe they do, I just don't see it ... but I get the feeling they're likely busy with real-life stuff or something.

I don't think politics is a "fad" on ATS, it's what people want to talk about everywhere. ATS would be better served trying out the "Above Politics" thing again, but totally making it a 100% separate website with a name not even affiliated with ATS in any way. That way the people running everything could still pay the bills, and the conspiracy stuff could stay here, and the politics stuff could go there.

I don't really see that happening though. The site seems to be on autopilot, as nothing is really broken. So there's some members complaining...but they're still clicking and viewing pages, which is keeping the lights on.

It's hard to "be the change you want to see" when every day more and more people are signing up via Twitter or other social media accounts that can be created out of thin air effortlessly. A lot of these people aren't bringing substance to the site, but are likely trolls or people who have been banned by an over-stressed staff.

I'm genuinely afraid for ATS in the upcoming years. Sites like this are gaining attention because of the wild and downright dangerous fake news they're allowing to be pushed. I hope ATS doesn't turn into a 4Chan-like place. There's still quality people here that deserve a decent platform to speak on.

I'll post about my experience


Cool I look forward to it. Thanks

I don't know about that. I think part of the reason you don't see as many out of this world conspiracies around today is partly because most members do have a "deny ignorance" mentality filled with some rightful skepticism when hearing extraordinary things.

Take the Tom Delonge threads around here, many have heard that tune numerous times in the past and are rightly skeptical. Perhaps not in the best way , but he also brought it on himself the way he pitched it.

i think many ats members have been involved in the conspiracy scene long enough to know how it always finishes.

The only issue I see with "deny ignorance" now is when it comes to politics and the people who have sworn their faith to their party. They made their political party a personal attachment and they take it as a personal insult when their TEAM is under attack.

If you don't have any alliance to either party or politician its really not that bad, its actually quite comical to observe the hypocrisy . Then you cry when you realize these are the people that have ruined this country .

I know where you're coming from bud. The cycle isn't broken but I will agree that A LOT of good posters have left.
Flood the feed with what you are interested in. As long as you aren't flag fishing, there are still a good many that will read and comment. How do you think those "good posters" got good?
Shoot, I might help flood it. I like the political debate but I enjoy the conspiracy/ ancient civilization/science as well.

This is very annoying. You visit ATS and all you see is

Trump
Trump
Trump
Russia
Trump
Trump
Clinton
Trump
Clinton
Podesta
Trump
Trump.


This is not ATS anymore, this is a political forum.
Before and shortly after the elections i thought it would blow over but its been a year since and its only getting worse.

#ing annoying

No disrespect, but your profile shows that you have posted 1 thread since joining a year ago.
As I told another poster, if you don't like the feed, flood it with things that interest you.
BE THE CHNAGE you want to see.

Y'know, it's what the users here want to see. So it's what they post.

You want to see other things?

There are other forums, the ribbon at the top of your screen: See where it says forums? Click that. It'll take you to a page that lists all the forum available on ATS--not all of which discuss Trump, Clinton, etc... There is a forum about UFO's. A forum about things that go bump in the night. There's a section of ATS, called BTS, where you can discuss, even share to an extent, your fave music or websites, or just jabber about things in general.

Start a thread or two about what interests you. You've enough posts to do so now. You really have no excuse.
