ATS didn’t move right, the left just went so far left that everything looks right to them.
If leftist members are leaving it’s because there ideas are hard to defend with a intelligent member base openly discussing them.

Just one thing: RationalWiki is not Wikipedia.
On one hand, Above Top Secret (pronounced ATS) is a conspiracy, science, and breaking news website manned by some of the brightest unemployed people on the planet. On the another hand, it's a place where distracting ads try to grab your attention and further cripple your sense of keeping your wallet closed (some ads actually float up out of nowhere and defy all attempts to capture or kill them). And on the last hand, sticky with bodily fluids but the one that holds all the cards, ATS is a site occupied by inmates of mental hospitals and/or security agencies monitoring the populace to see where the crazy will go next.

I miss the days when everyone thought ATS was a CIA front

I'll weigh in here, as an ex-staffer and as someone who left the site for a year.
The problem isn't ATS per se. The site is a container, and user generated content is always going to be reflective of the trends of the time.
The problem is hate politics, from both sides.
Both sides appear to be incapable of rationale discussion, and instead simply want to sling as much crap at each other as possible, and neither side want to do anything about it, because they are comfortable in their bubble.
Why did I go off ATS? Because I felt like a stranger in a strange land. The intelligent conversation stopped mostly and I got bored of reading the same old juvenile rubbish from both sides.
I have huge respect for the owners and staff here - the issue isn't them, or the way the site is run.
User generated content
Says it all.
Still am bored of reading it (the political content) - the difference now is that - after taking myself away for a while - I'm more objective.
