banning all political sh#tposters, closing the mudpit forum and 90% of the political forums, and putting a post minimun like the one on RATS on all remaining political forums

People need to stop taking things so seriously.

Life is too short to spend it in anguish.

Yeah, or Sitchin & Nibiru...

oh wait...there's still Nibiru threads going


The funny thing is with manipulative software. even if pictures were posted, you can't tell whats fake or real anymore.

Watching a country devolve into fascism


That happened long before Trump came along. Pay attention to the following video.

This site has become like a mass aggregator - rehash of news from any MSM.

I dont get it; the number of threads started over any "news soundbyte"

It gets boring.

Yes ! And thank you !

The spirit that was once ATS has been possessed by political madness.

How can I make ATS great again?
I could post more threads on home canning and share recipes I have found.
I have made threads just by posting articles that were sent to me and I
shared them here..

You're preaching to the choir dude or dudette.

I have been saying the same thing for so long, it's 'Trump did this' or 'Clinton did that' or 'senator blah blah did blah blah zzzzz...' I miss the ATS of yore, when it took hours of research and writing to make a thread about the stuff on the fringe like secret military projects, UFO's, cryptids etc.

But we live in a copy and paste world now and its doing a CTRL-Z to our creativity. See? that's what we want. I spent hours on researching and writing, because I wanted to add style to my work, nowadays it's either hyperbole or robotic.

This. So much this. I don't make threads. Hell, I barely post. But I'm on this site 3-5 times a day. I've watched dozens of decent threads that in no way involved politics go completely ignored in the past few months.

Unless, of course, someone flails wildly at making a political connection and then the politicrap starts there and details them. It's an unpleasant pattern.

Hey don't complain to me...

I have been filling 17 pages of avatar design since beginning this year...

I've seen some great threads come by on every kind of subject but they are pushed to the background real soon by political nonsense.

I'll let you in on a secret...the real fun is in the off-topic section!! Just post your interesting thread under general chit-chat

Anybody looking for a custom avatar? Just click my banner...

Peace

Was it ever great?

Don't we just come here to argue?

Im here to rumble with my evil twin.


It was not a utopia by any means but it was heavily focused on paranormal subjects and the strange and unknown.

The current state is why I haven't bothered to log in a damn near decade? This site is a joke now. Full of troglodytes and shills spewing what tribalistic garbage they see and hear from social media and the tv. It's actually quite ironic and hilarious.

The site it's self bombarded me with annoying ads, so distracting and obtrusive I'm forced to block them.

I come to lurk a few times a month looking for something intriguing like the Skywalker ranch doc coming up but the vast majority of content I find is the political black hole that is on every other internet site I'm trying to escape from. That ensures every visit is a short one.

I'm surprised the site has not splintered and spawned some type of 4chan /pol/ knock off subsidiary site yet.

Political arguments, banter and commentary spill into every sub board on this site because that is the largest chunk of traffic coming here for the past 3 years.

I come here for the strange, leave from the politics.

Thread about decreasing the amount of Trump Hillary type talk on ATS devolves into debating about Trump Hillary.
(Well for as far as I could be bothered reading)

The irony of this occurring is not lost on me.

Political discussion bull#tery is the only thing some come here for. And they spread it everywhere, like a virus.

I'm okay with a bit of political conspiracy.

But it's become a bit of floodgate of MSM bull#. It's not some of the content it's the sheer volume of it.
It's the same people posting the same stuff having the same round and round in a circle discussion aka mindless my teams better than your team fighting.
Just gets boring really.

Thankfully hitting "new" up top generally thins it out a little bit.

As others have said, if we want it gone then we need to provide content of our own or support the content we want to see.

I try to avoid the political stuff, but sometimes it's nice to dip a toe in occasionally and have a good laugh at it all.
I just dislike the whole black and white closed mindedness of it over all.

All good things in moderation.

let me guess, 90% of your posts are in those forums?
this isn't censorship, if you want politics go to gab.ai, 4chan or something, ATS is for aliens, ghosts and non-political conspiracys
