The big change that came about was the pay to play function, it just helped the downfall of ats, they should change the name to trump fans.com.

Could it be that just they didn't want a picture of breasts, even if they were animated as an avatar?

Do you really expect the ATS owners to know all about every piece of art that may be used as an avatar? They just have rules like "no pictures of breasts". Its not a nefarious conspiracy against you, its just common sense rules being enforced.

But humorously your posts will end up being a self fulfilling prophecy that you and others can use to attack ATS owners and mods.

They said this image wasn't t & c, so you repost it, knowing full well it will probably be removed. Then you can bash them as mean authoritarians that removed your post for no reason.



ATS allows muhammed the bomber cartoon but pair of cartoon breasts are not suitable .

Adam & Eve has to get dressed to comply with ATS T&C's .

I never thought that it was a " Conspiracy " against me .

On the contrary I thought that it was a sign of something being wrong .

imho , cartoon representation of Adam & Eve should be OK to post .

Early 2000's , one could post it and there would have been no trouble .

This is Cartoon I can post in muslim boards and nothing happens .

Now that is a news worthy piece of information as far as the " freedom " is concerned .

Anyhow , I do think the ATS can do better in lots of areas .

Nudity here on ATS is not allowed.

Period.

Not a photo, not a video, not a drawing or cartoon.

Period.

Have an issue with that? Take it up with the owners. It's their site and they set the rules, we just enforce them.

Just adding my voice to the complaints about the path that this site has been following. This past March marked a solid decade for my official presence on ATS. There had been a few years of lurking, but true to my tinfoil hat, initially I didn't go for an account because I thought it was more important to retain my anonymity. Those were the days of real-time postings by John Lear, and about Project Serpo. Lotta weirdness going on, but a lot of discourse as well. Respect for one's fellows, even in disagreement.

That's changed. Simply stated, there is far too much trolling and hate-mongering going on, especially from the self-styled Right Wing where discussion would seem to have been replaced by the hurling of the feces. In addition, I am truly disappointed to see some of the Mods joining in with truly intemperate postings. As the current American leadership is being called out for lowering the standards of civil behavior on the global and national stages, it's being mirrored here at ATS. Now, that might be deliberate, but I should think that there are enough conservative echo chambers out there that the Three Amigos don't feel the need to compromise the integrity of the site to entertain a new business plan.

But somebody IS asleep at the switch.





Text In addition, I am truly disappointed to see some of the Mods joining in with truly intemperate postings.




In all honesty this site was and still is a good site but when Trayvon martin got slaughtered by the stalker guy,that's when you really saw the true colors of ats,the posters and honestly where the mods stood and how they felt..not all mods just a couple of them.







Exactly this! I can remember how shocked I was reading all these ugly comments about how Trayvon deserved what he got and the amount of posters glad there was "one less thug" was astounding. Up until then, I'd looked up to the people posting on here and thought ATS contained some of the smartest posters on the whole world wide web. That was one crazy u-turn. I remember the bloodbath that followed and did remove a couple of heads in that fight myself.

As for the OP, being that I'm not an American all this left and right talk really gets to me. Seems like there is a cultish behavior going on here on some "you're either with us or against us" and here I am..on the outside looking in. Political talks is drowning the site, hope it goes back to what it used to be. I've been lurking here since early 2000's and originally found the site looking for ghost stories, then I lurked for several years before finally signing up in 09. It's more of a mainstream news discussion in modern times, but at least we that know, know that it wasn't always like that.

If you don't see the problem and just reduce it to a pair breast then I am afraid you and I are on different plains of reason .

A policy is there for the benefit of the users and this particular policy in question is absurd as it requires Adam & Eve cartoons to be dressed !

Dressed Adam & Eve is an oxymoron .

The news worthy information is that the same picture is allowed on almost ALL bulletin boards on the web and forums while it is not allowed here .

Apparently you're not understanding.

Again: site owners set the rules. Rules state: no nudity allowed.

Understand now?

Yes i really don't like partisan politics, i've only ever advocated Direct Democracy and am against empowering any individual to represent one's self and don't recognize their authority to do so, the entire system is corrupt and only self serving, my only interest is ending it and i assure you that was my intent there.

The whole Trump thing is about throwing a spanner in the works, in fact a whole tool-box of them, and observing the results and the manner in which the system reveals itself, what passes for the Left is the most reliant on an authoritarian state.


Thank you for the clarification on your stance.

I could not agree more with you that the whole system is corrupt to the core. Sometimes when I catch myself pointing out all the problems I feel shameful for not providing any solutions.

Your commentary on Trump is open to interpretation as I do not fully understand what you meant and do not want to incorrectly portray your point.

I think Trump is part of the show, the hand behind the scenes pulling the puppet strings put Trump there for a reason in my opinion. The madness that ensues every time he speaks/tweets proves how easily the gullible are manipulated.

The fact that a large populace of the United States of America actually believe that a ROGUE POTUS made it into the White House with their best intentions in mind, is downright frightening. The fact that ATS embraces this distraction proves to me that this is no longer a conspiracy site (not like it used to be).

ATS is now where we tell eachother that our make-believe team is better than the other make-believe team, and we get really mean about it too.

The odd time I am lucky enough to stumble across one of your threads or a few other members who aren't caught up in this insanity.

Another thing that makes me laugh is that if we don't like Trump, we are automatically classified as an SJW Progressive Libtard snow-flake who's in need of a safe-space.

I keep pissing all over the Trump supporters safe spaces all the time just for the heck of it. It's fun to watch the anti-snowflakes melt just like their sworn enemy.

LOL

But all of existence is in decline, what's your problem? You want to make it better go create your own space or improve the current. We're all heading to zero, null, nada, an absence of everything, but at least we can talk about it.

When will ATS hit rock bottom? Let the creator of ATS keep up the good appearances.

No one is taking up anything with you .

If i was to take anything up with you ; it would be the hostility in your lingo but I am not going to go there .

It's ATS that needs to act or not on the info I provided . I am not too bothered either way , I just take it as a sign of the decline the op mentions .

Keep in mind ATS people, this site should be entertaining and something else.

When you post an op or a regular post try to be entertaining or informative.

The most important thing in psychic life is interest

….be interesting


The politics is just a phase, an indication of a less spiritual culture and a more material one, and change is merely a part of nature.

The good old days has not left merely become smaller

Does anyone reading this see the litany of "problems" that is being discussed on this thread.

The OP had a problem with the right wing.

People have problems with too many political postings.

People have problems with not enough UFO posts.

People have problems with certain mods deleting posts or contributing to political posts.

People have problems with the owners receiving money.

And now, people have problems with not being allowed to post nude animations of adam and eve.

I would contend that what most of these people are really trying to say is that they have a problem that ATS is not catered specially to them. These people think that the rules and content of ATS should be only things they like.

So if you are on your high horse thinking you know what is wrong with ATS, remember; there is someone just as certain as you that the problem is you can't post nude images of adam and eve.

I actually met the guy in London @ party and I can tell you , No , he wouldn't .

This is like twilight zone ; am I surrounded by ISIS supporters ? They are also thinking that this is not allowed .

Do you mean to tell me that the ATS and ISIS follows the same policy towards Adam & Eve Cartoons ?

Whichever way you look at it , it is wrong to ban Adam & Eve cartoons ,imho .

Hi
I must say I agree with the OP, it seems those shills which ever side of the fence they sit on have taken over the home page.... What might be advisable is a re-editing/Tweak of the homepage.
1. A homepage comprised of sectioned panels for each Subject and displaying the top 2 and 1 of the most recent in each panel.
2. Condense all those political forums(far to many).

At least when members logged in they wouldn't be bombarded with a solid page of how Trump likes vodka or Clinton likes special pizza
We would have a homepage with a panel for each genre, scrolling down to which ever panel floats your boat, be it Political, Paranormal, Religious etc. etc.

Sorry OP but I believe the attitude of certain poster/members is an innate trait of the ethos they follow, a saying here in blighty, "It does exactly what it says on the tin"... The right will always have a greed based self-serving ethos,"Trump" so it goes without saying the types of people it attracts will be of that ilk. The left also has its moments but their reasons come from frustration when faced with ignorance, injustice or inequality, "Bernie Sanders" that is seemingly ripe in today's world... And then there's the worst offenders Center Liberalism, cant make up what side their on but will drop to either side if it means power and profit, whatever the cost "Podesta", "Clinton" the flippy flop members.

So lets have a Front-page rehash sectioned out for more variety
