Its an inevitable formality that ATS fall into the spectrum of MSM as the status quo MSM crumbles and looks for new shelter. The whole 'fake news'
saga has clearly rung the bells of many of the MSM worshippers. Opinions on topics aside, people are not blind to the fact that the way news hits the
end users is changing... essentially meaning that MSM is slowly finding its own demise.
Well, people will still need their news as there's certainly no shortage of it. Well, the movement of the MSM worshipers slowly shifting their
presence into previously tainted 'conspiracy' areas is ever growing. The long term conspiracy theorist must shift their participation into one of 2
categories... either by acting as a guide to this new influx of MSM, or by going away to find a possible new comfy place for conspiracy debate to
thrive. Conspiracy debate has pretty much gone away here because the bulk of members here are new and trying to spread their message. Maybe they
want to learn more, but the bulk of new members only care to have their opinions displayed. I see it as making one self comfortable in another's home
as they look for more credible avenues of ears than is offered through standard MSM channeling.
Please don't take personal offense if you've joined ATS in the last election cycle, but it's kind of hard to read a lot of what you all have to say.
The OP is right... there is a complete lack of conspiracy around here, and the focus is too much on MSM stories. Personally, I will not type in a
thread that has anything to do with MSM happenings that is politically motivated.
I came to ATS in the 2nd term of Bush. I ONLY read here for about 3 to 4 years before I felt as if I was not going against the grain of culture at
ATS when I chimed in. Nowadays, there's people that have thousands of messages to their count and they only joined within the last year. Maybe they
read for years on end like I say I did, but I doubt it.
I also feel there is a large crew of posters here that are only here to post to provide shade over a previous poster's knowledgeable post. I will see
a thread go unspoken on for some time. Then I will see a historical member make a classic 'conspiracy driven' post, only to have some dink make a
completely ignorant post immediately after it... like they just wanted to block the intelligent words of another member... to limit their chance of
being seen by others.
I'd already be gone from ATS if it were not my only source of interweb communication. Honestly, I am not far off from cutting the cord entirely... I
just have no desire to hold the hands of MSM worshippers as they look for safe grounds to debate.
