ATS has become infiltrated with people, with the sole purpose of encouraging disaccord and division amongst members IMO.

I think the big problem is the general MSM is no longer promoting wild hare conspiracies like UFOs and long term serial killers and genuine science/medical topics.
...ATS Owners/moderators whom you're ALSO accusing of manipulating the thread rankings to fit their personal ideology.
Now I have no idea if they were paid but they certainly were/are some type of marketing/journalism professional. (BTW there is many ways to pay a person without a direct monetary contribution - jobs for them or their relatives is a big one - paying for site advertisements (hint)

Not only are the threads politicised and seemingly designed to divide, but their ability to attract posts and support and to stick around in the Top sections of ATS is way beyond their level of interest.
For sure, the current political climate in USA is both important and interesting. The decisions made by Trump 'in power' will reverberate across the world and already are doing so. The actions of Clinton over the years is enough to make an open-minded researcher sick with disgust at the people who hold power in the world. Regardless of how interesting and important all of this is it is NOT as important or interesting as the topics which should be the focus of ATS.
...I am already seeing areas developing that may not get proper coverage because talk will set off a new round of shooting only.
For example.....what ever side you are on, you should be able to see that the insurance firms are still firmly in charge of the health care thingy and it never really was a partisan issue at its core.
a direct attack on ATS, the owners and staff for adhering to the Constitution of the United States of America.
