The, "ATS of old," also wouldn't allow tons of one liner, throw away responses that added little to the substantive content of the conversation and yet those are often the comments that add pages and pages to a thread; I've been guilty myself of this on occasion though that is generally due to me being fed up with the very that very thing.

I consider myself to be somewhat right leaning on some topics and somewhat left leaning on others, yet I am certain if many members, some in this very thread, were asked, they would say that I am one of those 'alt-right' types I see being railed against in the OP source links.

As another member mentioned, it is somewhat interesting to see a plethora of newly created accounts flood the board with a huge number of the kinds of posts I mentioned I my first paragraph, some have as many as an average of 42 posts/day and are less than a month old.

All we can do to improve the quality of our site here is to continue to make the kinds of posts we think should be made and if assertions are being made, make sure relevant excerpts with links are included in order to back up said assertions.

The name calling has gotten completely out of hand and nobody seems to care. Theres's also a
negative side....


So the left is the only one that gets to go around INSULTING others?

Racist.

White Supremacist.

Russian puppet.

Rapist.

The list goes on.



Yes but nobody is actually calling you that.

I think if I call Trump a rapist some take that too personally and respond as if I am personally calling you a rapist.

Unless trump has a whole load of accounts on ATS then there is no need for you to take it personally

Wow the number of right leaning members who actually think the liberals left because they were outwitted...

not too full of yourselves though.....


Why are they leaving if their ideas are winning?

Well they certainly moved it because I could give stars a few minutes ago and now I cant.

For the most part this is just a trump fan club these days.
So boring....


All of the world is, sorry. That’s kind of why he won the presidency.
Kind of.

But don’t worry too much. He’s limited to two terms so there’s only just under six years to go.

Also: opposing left wing idiocy does NOT mean one is necessarily a Trump Fan. It just means they’re opposing left wing idiocy. Which really is a good thing.

The left expects the right to be.

We're not socialists.

We will fight back.

Where's your outrage every time someone on the Right insults and derides everyone on the Left? Even in this very thread we have numerous users saying the reason there a fewer Left leaning members on ATS is because the Left is too dumb to have a proper debate. Meanwhile you focus on the one post that insults the Right.

Yes, the Left is bullied on this site and the mods do nothing about it.

The "site" is nothing but code and algorithms. Members determine the content.


The abovenetwork llc is a managing partnership which began as the ATS website. It has paid employees, owners, and volunteer moderation. It does not take or promote an official political leaning.

The OP, and the wiki its cites, claims moderation favors alt- right leanings.
The mods can, and do participate in discussions, but ive seen no move to the right by the staff, or the management.

By the membership participation, sure. It's hard to defend leftist ideology out side of echo chambers. So the lefties have gone elsewhere. They're easily startled, but they'll be back.
And in greater numbers.

Yes they are, and have EVERY single day for the last decade.

Because the Right don't roll over and play dead and let the left do what the eff they want.

Seriously. How many threads have there been that refer to people on the Left as Dims? A lot of them aren't even in the Mud Pit. On the ATS of old that wouldn't be allowed for a second. Now not only is it tolerated but if someone on the Left actually tries to hit back this site acts like its the end of the world.

ATS is nothing more than a safe space for the Retardicans. They're just too dumb to realize it.


How old is ATS of old? Just asking since ATS seemed to have started to take a turn back as early as 2013. At least according to your authored How are we not Sheeple? Rant forum thread.

I agree that it is obvious ATS has been changing...but it was evolving long before Trump and obviously media distrust was well before your own authored thread date.

If you want to be exposed to the left perspective, just go turn on or read any mainstream media channel.

So stating facts is calling names now? Big difference between facetiously saying the left isn't bright enough to have a debate and accusing someone of being racist, bigot, homophobe, xenophobe,etc.

Thanks for proving my point...

I don't use ad homs, why do you?

It is quite funny to make claims that the left are not able to stand toe to toe in a debate against someone from the right when all they have to offer as sources are Fox news, conservative tree house, conservative pundit site or whatever conservative BS site. They cry about fake news but are the main purveyor of it and by using these websites with their misleading headlines, lies, cherry picked fact or misrepresentation of what is actually said or done, they show that they are unable to present their side of the debate with facts and if their views were valid, they would not have to resort to such tactics.

Personally I say bring it on, safe space not needed.
These alt right douche bags live in a bubble of their own making, where you don't dare question their outdated archaic opinions.

The second reply to this thread tells you all about these people.



If leftist members are leaving it’s because there ideas are hard to defend with a intelligent member base openly discussing them


^^^an intelligent member that spells their as there.
and they worship and praise a known liar who happens to be an idiot. So as long as he is their leader and spokesperson, they cannot claim a victory based on intelligence.

ATS hasn't been it's old self for a long time now. It took a massive nose dive with the introduction of the Mud Pit. If you want to know when I thought ATS was great just look at my 10 year retrospective. Most of the members I named as being the best of the best haven't even been active for years now.
