Hey, just thought I'd make a thread about a subject.

Here's a link [inster link]

tl;dr: posted a two sentence thread plus this tl;dr

/sarc

ETA: I'm ranting about those numerous threads that sound cool but when you click have only one or two sentences, no opinions, and links to external sources. The "facebook/twitter" type threads. (In case any of that was not clear)

I clicked, and it turned out to be more interesting than 99% of all other click-bait. Kudos!

If you're going to post a MEME at least find a creative one to make your point.

There are things members can do when they see these minimal OPs.

1. Ignore them....do NOT post to them.
2. File an alert....if they really are minimal, they may be removed.
3. Do both.

I do both those things (sometimes)!

There are so many I don't want to annoy mods alerting every single one.

Now I suppose I am a bit hypocritical, having made the same thread.

Naaah. That's part of the fun on ATS. Clicking the baitors.

Is it half the fun though? Is the other half, the "ATS is Dying" threads?

For the record I don't think ATS is dying. I haven't even been here since the 'good ole days' I hear talk of. My first exposure to ATS was way back when it launched. Heard about it on Coast to Coast AM. Checked it out but didn't make an account or even lurk. In my shorter time here though I've noticed more casual OPs or however you want to describe them. But dying? Idk about that just yet.

Also! I know I am not the best content contributor.

Not trying to sound like I think I have a high horse.
