You cant say anything about trump or the republicans because if you say something that a mod does not like, they will use the political trolling against you and one specific one,will chase you down to the far ends of this site.


You can say whatever you want about Trump in the Mud Pit, believe me, I have called him quite a few unflattering names in there.


I wish the mud pit was here the whole time since the start of this site, than maybe some 4,000 plus posters would still be here.The political trolling is what really destroyed ats because you have 50 mods with 50 plus different views that ran with it just a little to much...it destroys


freedom of speech

and


freedom of free will to think

Alot of posters was just not having that...left immediately never to return.

Yeah I had "thehammer" all over me. Way overkill. Seemed futile. Total thought control was my impression. Like trying to stop a civil war makes you a monster.

The thing with the moderators is they don't ban people unilaterally, they discuss it behind the scenes first and then act. So you can have a run in with a moderator and get a post removed but they cannot boot you without discussing the whys first.

And honestly, I haven't seen any of them trolling people politically. They have their opinions but, I find most of them play it closer to the vest than the rest of us. They, by the fact that they get tabbed to be moderators after being members for a length of time means they are usually more level headed.

I think there are far to many political posts.

Make the political post something that you need to opt into rather than having so many of the post clogging the recent 100.

If you want to make a political post find another site.

Same thing about racial posts.

Lets get this site back to what got so many people to come here in the first place


This is a fantastic idea! I ditto - make political posts something you have to opt into. Please please let's do this.

But you shouldn't trust Masons either.

About Freemasonry, no.

And before you clench your butt cheeks in malcontent, I don't hold it against you or your Brotherhood. An oath is an oath. With that said, I still find it odd that Masons are so willing to answer questions here, but incapable of providing certain truths. One might say that learning about Freemasonry will continue to breed ignorance as long as we take their word on things! But alas, what do I know? I'm just a part of the profane.

The decline in ATS started at the same time I started posting.

So that means I should be able to find out what caused the decline. . . .

Yes it would be a great feature!

What they could do is have different forums, and then you can chose to click on what forum you like!

Oh wait...

Like with my mouse? Like I have to, you know, actually click on the thread/forum to get pissed off over it? That would be better than the microwave transmission that's currently just beamed into my coconut.

I didnt get that. What I got is that hes sick of it being a right wing echo chamber, which it has become.

The partisan accusatory rhetoric and barking comes from those claiming to be affiliated with the right wing rather than left wing 10:1 here.

Im affiliated with no party and the cult like aspect to the american right and left wing legions is obvious. Copius self righteousness from both parties tbh.

I just think it's funny that people come to a conspiracy forum expecting it to be filled with Obama/Clinton supporters. In case you haven't noticed they've been a topic of discussion on here long before the 2016 elections.

In all honesty, i had a mod as a friend under another account back in 2013,a very disgruntled mod that i believe got fired or something...explained a lot of stuff and told me a lot of things...and ill just leave it there.

Believe what you want ,not here to debate on this thread ,because its a good one,going to play blackops 3 and get on Grand theft auto,be on later.

Well that would kind of prove my point. If you could unilaterally act then he would still be here.

At least you keep it contained (for the most part).
