No bubble to burst here . I haven't been in too much trouble here and not enough to have a need to talk with a staff member .I wont complain about them because we need them .I was kind of pulling your chain though

I don't think so,when I first signed up Facebook didn't exist,wasn't until later years they added twitter,which wasn't required

It doesn't. There is no reference to ATS on my Facebook account.
Not ever.

There has been a temporary change to the sign up procedure.


Is that to say this is not going to be the status quo and you will in future be able to sign in without social media..

In 3 days it will be my 7 year anniversary here at ATS (YAY SO MUCH LOVE TO SO MANY HERE) anyways I never ever had a social media to sign in here and never needed one to join. Just an email address and some decorum (most of the time) to stay.

Same here.

If my account ever gets banned I guess I will "lurk only" .
Until that day I'm riding this train!

Although I dont TOTALLY agree with this....

It could vastly cut down on the puppet and trolling accounts, as it would take a lot more effort to create those than the two seconds to make a new email address on Gmail........

Just because there is no visible reference doesn't mean that everything is not interlinked.

www.abovetopsecret.com...


Why does the member page even display the social network I registered with? How is it anyone's business?


Also, where is the information that informs new members to which extent information is being cross linked or collected by the social network?

i am wondering how many of us can see your post...(i have had similar thought as you)
can you read my post?
i am just conducting a small test...


Yes, I see this post.

Funny enough, I can't find some of my own old posts. So, it's not just other people's posts that are invisible, but sometimes things posted by self. Weird.

Yup, It's painfully obvious this is the main concern of this thread.

This peaked my curiosity, so I logged out to go to the join page.

No way to do it than with a social network, very strange.

What you are saying is that I created this new account to complain about how hard it is to create a new account?

I am saying that trolls are a problem, sadly, they think they are clever, but in reality they are lonely and kinda sad and really hold little interest for other people on this site when they are executing whatever strange emotional problems they have by their need troll the site.

I said concern of the thread, not the OP, take it anyway you want though....

Oh you won't even admit it. Since I wrote the thread, you were refering to me. Or are you saying that everyone here is concerned about that? I don't think you are so you are lying.





I am saying that repeat trolls are a problem, sadly, they think they are clever, but in reality they are lonely and kinda sad and really hold little interest for other people on this site when they are executing whatever strange emotional problems they have by their need troll the site.


Well, I don't see these people being stopped by this new development, so your premise was flawed.

Zazza......
