I often see adverts which breach terms and conditions on 'family friendly' ATS, I laugh quietly to myself at the irony.


It's a mess , i know .

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.



OK , I'll bite .

It is Adam & Eve for crying outloud !!!

They suppose to be Nude .


You think Bill Hicks would approve ?


I don't care what Bill Hicks would have thought.

www.abovetopsecret.com...

Now please, go on telling us how not being able to post a nude animation has ruined ATS.



ISIS also bans the same cartoon .


I am against banning Adam & Eve cartoons .



Hahahaha!

Keep going!

Everyone see complaining about the mods and the owners the kind of people thay have to deal with!

Please, keep going on about this. You are really proving my point.




I don't think you know what my point is .

ATS owners have to pay for Admins & Mods is where my point ends .

This argument is not new nor original ; I once Admin'ed a similar board with 200K users so i do have the experience in these matters .

I'm not sure you're correct with that, but it would be kinda interesting to know just who is on the payroll, wouldn't it?

I fully endorse everything you say, and I feel exaclty like you do. This place has become a pit of hate against anything un'murican anti-trump and everyday I feel less and less at home here.

I've seen posters talking about bombing Mexico, about killing "leftards", about deporting all muslims, celebrating the gung ho styel of Trump not having an eid mubarak dinner, about how 'Muricans don't need no one or nuthin'...I wish all the political bickering and trolling could be consigned to the old "Below top Secret" site, and we could recover the tinfol minded conspiracy theories of old...

sigh...as you said, I come back here less and less and less...

ATS does have a huge potential to make money for it's owners , workers and users alike .

Unfortunately the e-commerce and i-commerce potential of ATS goes unnoticed largely due to lack of investment in the ATS.

I once had a chat with one of the Mods , several years back I believe .

ATS business model is stuck in the 90's , firmly .

As far as the Decline is concerned ; it is normal for any business to decline should they fail to invest , innovate and improve with times.

Users of ATS reminds me of Junk DNA .

Well I was contacted about a possible investment, but after finding out that both Isis and ATS frown on nude images, i realized they must be an Isis front I decided to hold on to my money.

Thank goodness you were here to point out the REAL problem with ATS.

In the last 24 hours on ATS there has been a post of content straight out of Stormfront, real nasty neo-nazi stuff, which got a bunch of stars and praising comments from some of the Trump supporters here, before the thread got nuked by the mods.

And a post in which a Trump supporter is salivating in a really creepy way at the thought of a 'snowflake Democrat' being gang raped in jail by black men.


This is not content I want to see anymore. And yet we have the alt-right in this thread saying the problem isn't this content, the problem is the people who don't want to tolerate it.


Stuff like THAT shouldn't be LEFT up until someone complains.

There should be ENOUGH staff pursuing the topics to notice and identify blatant hate speech that BREAKS site rules.

Stuff like THAT shouldn't be left up to "member policing". I get it that everyone is a volunteer. Get MORE staff if you need coverage.

CONTENT like that ultimately drives MORE views/clicks away than it DELIVERS.

When I am at work I have to slide the browser to the right so the ads don't show
Don't want them thinking I am looking for a foreign bride as the side banner always seems to suggest.

Yet why is it people on this thread are only complaining about vitriol from the right?

I have seen posts saying Scalise deserved to be shot. I have seen posts saying Otto Warmbier deserved to die. I have even seen racist threads about white people being stupid.

In fact, some of the people on this very thread calling for more censorship have been the ones to post that.

Again, you would complain if your posts got removed, yet clamor for your opponents to be.

I'm okay with debating someone who is pro-Trump. What I am getting tired of is all the rhetoric about the left being mentally ill and stupid.


Really? Pro-Trump people spent the entire election cycle being called everything from gullible, low-information fools to inbred hillbillies and worse by the left, whose vast intellectual superiority was constantly being claimed. It does get tiring, doesn't it?
Now excuse me I've gotta go, my neighbor's got his banjo - where's my washboard???

ATS was yet still even better before 2010, before all the facebook children, before the first decline, now many of you fear the second fall yet you know not what this once was.

I watched first hand as all these ignorant children, walking there first steps onto a broader plateau of potential belief. Walked amongst our treasured relics of ATS and cut them down where they stood, mirroring poisoned rhetoric of there indoctrinated beliefs. With that, many of those with the broadest of minds whom always brought forth the next mystery to absorb into and discuss without fight they were banished into silence forced to seek new homes. Whats left are the bumbling scum and those whom still push forward into the unknown and try to show us the way.

Political cycle was and still is viscous and invades everything, it's easy to get burnt out. I've stayed away. It's like a polluted river and not knowing where, when or if it's safe to jump in.

Intellectual superiority seems such a waste when you can't seem to think of a way to win an election.

Is this thread a self-fulfilling prophecy?

Totally agree. Iv'e been here for over a decade and the site has change considerably. As JohnnyCanuck stated quite rightly it's become full of folks who go ape sh.t should anyone post anything anti trump.

I think one thing that can done is to hike off the US political thread onto its own high level menu (Video Top New Live USPOlitical Archive etc) This would remove swathes of posts that just swamp everything else.

From a neutral point of view (I see past the charade of partisan politics) it's clearly the "right" polluting ATS with the hate the OP describes. Yes, the "lefties" do it too, I do it as well, I get caught up and post some nasty things...

But at the end of the day it's the self proclaimed right wingers that are turning ATS into a volatile forum. I'm getting knocked down to your level and letting you extremists get the better of me which I have no one to blame but myself for allowing it to happen.
