I'm pretty sure 95% of new members are the same 3 people who keep getting banned and re-joining.

Prove me wrong yo


They're all me and DB talking with ourselves.

I think what some people are failing to grasp is that maybe the "conservatives" posts are more compelling than anything the left leaning folks post. Maybe post better? After all, life is a contest.

Same. I don't find this some popularity contest where I need a flashy avatar and stats, like I need a bunch of piercings and tattoos.

had to look it up myself. it seems to be a social media site used by white supremacists.

So is Facebook a black supremacist site? By your logic?

I think it would be a positive development for former Gab members to join ATS. I was just reading a study on political violence and the conclusion of the study was that providing individuals prone to political violence who are also high in sensation seeking with a peaceful yet exciting group mitigated those individuals' capacity and support for extreme behavior.

Are we not peaceful yet exciting here on ATS?

This is why I kind of like browsing ATS on mobile. No avatars, no backgrounds, no total post or star counts, no member info. Just a name, the post, and the stars for that post.

I dunno who's who or who's been here how long...I just see names I recognize or not. I like it that way.

I thought we were here because we mistook ATS for a Chinese porn site.

It's called reading the threads. It's refreshing the topics and looking at the reality.

You are IATSE.
Ignoring the reality, is like turning a blind eye to folks in costumes, props, and those others who are under represented in our business.


You're right. I guess we see what we want to see. From my perspective ATS is one yuugggeee rightwing circle jerk and someone keeps drinking the hand sanitizer.


and welcome exGABomites, you should enjoy it here!!

I find it funnier seeing all these posts from people who joined in 2013 or 2014 with 10-20 posts to their name who all of a sudden get into heated political debates. One could say "sleeper cells" triggered.

Or troll farms


Exactly.

I agree, you only have to see how many stars a right wing post gets compared to left wing on ATS.
I'm not whining though, I'm middle of the road politically and I'm only here for amusement, but ATS membership is massively right wing, anyone saying different is delusional.


Exactly the reason why I think these guys will come here. And they will fit in nicely and feel like they've been here for years.

At the very least we can get some juicy stories abut Bowers and what happened over there. Right?

Yes, compelling to other like minded people. That's exactly the topic.

Far right stuff would not be compelling to a lefty, correct?

Which means this website only compels the right and the conservative, even according to you. I'm sure we've all seen this shift over the years. It's always been more right, conspiracy theorists are mostly on the right, but it hasn't gotten this openly extreme ever before. This is new to me.

Well of course.

If you are on the left you are more likely to trust government, if you are on the right you are more likely to be wary of government.

It's no surprise that a conspiracy site leans to the right.
Do you think? I see your thought process but I've been on much left wing activism in my life and generally we were fighting government.
I don't see a clear link between right wing equals more into conspiracies.

I'd never even heard about that site until reading a thread on ATS the other day. I would hope we don't get more rabid right wing folk here, the mudpit will be overflowing with threads lol

I think it's inevitable. As hate spewing websites get shut down there are less and less places for those people to visit. Maybe they won't all come here now, but it's just a matter of time. And as I said, they will fit in so nicely no one will be able to tell a difference until it's too late.

Oh and Mud Pit is already overflowing. ATS should actually be renamed The Mud Pit. At any given time, if you look at the top flagged threads, half or more than half of the list is the Mud Pit.

That is a big part of the problem with this website and the reason for many issues that people bring up.

Lol, I know!
I've seen it myself so I've started posting political threads there and keeping it friendly. If you can't beat them join them haha, I find the angrier people are the more amusing it is for me.
...I troll on Stormfront sometimes, been banned loads of times because I challenge their racism. Again, for amusement, I'm never gonna change the opinion of anyone.

So. More blah blah blah. Deflection. Yadda yadda.

What part of "maybe post better" didn't you understand.

Post to change my mind, not report the same crap day in and day out.

Now, see. I read what you said and thought to myself, could Random be corrrect? Might it all be just my perspective? My bias?

So I went to the page of top flags to look at just the top post. It was from a well known Trump supporter and it had a #box of stars. The second poster was conservative and likewise was loaded with stars. On down the page conservative posters one after another and all with oodles of stars. On the first page alone I could find only one poster who took even a moderate stand.

So, find us one from your perspective, one that had so called liberals all through it and goes on for pages and pages with lots of stars.
