I am a massive lefty, and I have to call you on your BS about the administrators, moderators and owners of this website. You can pan the memberships
far right elements as far as you need to, and I am not going to say a damned word about that, because I could not agree more.
But the staff, owners and volunteers at ATS are only human. The fact that the utter cesspool being generated by the far right square bashers around
here is large, is not the fault of those who work to keep the site running. They have a big job to do, and there are not a great deal of them, nor
hours in the day with which to complete that work. What does not help, is that people do not report nearly often enough, the sort of interactions and
behaviours that they complain about. If you see some racist nonsense being posted, you MUST report it, every single time. That, however, takes a lot
of time out of a persons day, and most people will just leave a thread rather than report bad conduct.
That means that admins, mods and owners have to spend time trawling the boards looking not for discussions, as members, but sniffing out threads and
posts which break terms and conditions, or exemplify poor manners or decorum.
That is work the members should be doing for them, in order to maintain the quality of the digital environment we are all living in. Only the
membership are a large enough organism, to be able to put our finger on precisely when a post comes up that ought be removed, or when a thread is
getting out of control. In much the same way as not calling the police and hoping they will arrive soon, one MUST alert the moderators when one feels
that T&C have been violated, or else nothing will be done about behaviour that you find unacceptable.
You need to quit ragging on the sites underpinnings friend, because its the membership which has the problem.
