I know that if I were to stop posting I wouldn't be missed much.
Some members would probably celebrate and move on.I feel some
members just needed some time off from posting.Some have gotten
jobs that might keep them from posting.Members have gotten sick
and some have passed away.

ATS depends on members for the site to grow and continue on into
the future.You can't depend on a few to carry the load,you have to do
your share.You want quality threads you have to post them yourself.
This is just my 2 cents worth of advice...Mama

Because it's a lot easier to complain about the lack of quality threads, then it is to put the effort into making one.

That is the way it used to be.

Look through the threads. Quality posts are either derailed or they wither on the vine.

Too many that post to ATS today, don't come here for discussion or to deny ignorance.

So I got a bit fed up of all the Tumpsters on ATS and took a month or two off, decided that for my own sanity i had to leave ATS for a bit.

However I started to notice something rather odd, there seem to be quite a few faces (ok avatars) missing. Lots of members who used to post a lot or who used to write huge big threads... just gone.


Maybe they the same syndrome as you, except the really rubbish Trump threads haven't died down since his election as perhaps most of us hoped, and the futility of attempting a focussed reply when you see yet another Trumpanology post with a flood of stars already while hardly a reply is written...pure propaganda is the operative word, not discussion.


Thing is that on almost every site I frequent that used to have a lot of really interesting topics even if most weren't good conspiracy fodder, the current political turmoil has pretty much sucked all the air out of the room.

Sure a lot of what I read was political based, but there was a range of things to read about. Sometimes, I shared, but lately, it's almost all related to one thing in some way or other. I think we're seeing that reflected back here.

I don't think it's all necessarily a reflection on the current active membership, but if we pass along what we see ... and they're seeing what I am seeing ... well, what is there to pass on that isn't related? It's pretty hard to find good stuff that isn't all that one topic 24/7.

I know that many now come here to embrace ignorance not to deny it!
Sad but true...

•They don't want to be forced to pick a partisan side.
•Not interested in the name calling.
•Find their content will be meaningless in competition with political threads.
•Upset to see how the site is aligning when it used to be more neutral.

At least from what I've observed over time and from who I talked to.

I do wonder though where SkepticOverLord has gone to though.


I doubt he's gone anywhere. Probably uses a sock puppet or two now.

Given his political leanings, Springer probably told him to zip it so as not to scare away the conservatives.
