I think some are just "done" with it. There is only so far to go in such a discussion and at some point it really just turns into a conglomerated list
There are only so many stories to tell in this arena of things and actual exploration into such topics are more likely to be derailed than progress.
For instance, if the Mandela Effect is actually occurring beyond faulty memory, the mechanisms involved would be far enough removed from common
knowledge that we would have to explore numerous tangential, "mystery" topics before we could really touch on it.
Some probably disliked the hostility involved as well, but the truth is that is involved in nearly any topic. Some are completely incapable of living
in a world where they can not explain absolutely everything within their paradigm. That is balanced out by those who refuse to consider anything
within any commonly accepted paradigm. Both can be pretty unreasonable and alienate anyone who isn't residing in the extremes. With "woo" topics (for
lack of a better word) it will tend to manifest in one way, while another arena, like politics, will display in another.
They really aren't much different, but something like politics will constantly give more fuel and fodder while one like the Mandela Effect kind of
runs out of energy at a certain point.
Its a "dance" of sorts that goes on in pretty much any discussion on the net. It also tends to be easy to single ATS out as being a haven for the
opposing side, but really, that might be more of an indicator for how much impact the opposing perspective has on the individual as well as how deeply
they conflate their perspective with some universal "reality."
