That's bull$hit.
As the op stated >500 posts = no contribution.
I'll go here... because it's obvious...
ATS is an ad revenue generated site. Lurkers matter to the bottom line. More hits, more revenue.
Has no meaning who posts or doesn't.

I've noticed this really over the past two weeks. I could be wrong here but I have to wonder. Last few years, ATS has been Trump cheer squad central in a pretty major way. I wonder if Trump's supporters are starting to get a bit quiet because of events surrounding him that are disappointing them. Trumps hawkish movements of late in the Middle East and South China sea are not what his base voted for. Is Trumps base becoming disillusioned? Are people starting to realise that Trump is just as much deep state as the rest of em?

I'd say about 65 people provide the large majority of the content.

You spend enough time reading through the volumes of threads and you get to know people by their writing style and how they think. 65's probably not a bad number. Add to that a couple hundred who 'chime in' regularly. I've seen some people take a smack from the ban hammer and not return. Other people start right over with a new name.

Personal to DictionaryOfExcuses: My dad introduced me and my sister to this site. He hasn't logged-on for over a year and half (he took it hard when members passed IRL). Sister never really took much interest.

There seems to be a lot fewer females than there used to be. I'm not really surprised, the way they get trashed for even taking a mild feminist approach.

The Ads are ridiculous on here. Hence why I stopped visiting/lurking ATS lately.

Get rid of ads.

They do not contribute to the community...

No one on here gives a flip about as revenue.. lurkers included..

Lurkers are only here because of those contributing..


But I think you are on to something. The people who run the site only care about as revenue..



No money has been put into updating the site.. no mods are paid...

The site has not even attempted to keep the site current tech wise..

Which is probably a primary cause

Why would they get rid of the ads when they don’t pay mods or update the site?!?!

Lol

Basically all the mods are hard core trumpets...

Not all, but 8-9 out of 10..

Then other trumpets who are not mods go around reporting everyone pointing out the fallacies in conservative propaganda..

Which gets reviewed by the mod trumpets..


Which has led to an exodus of anyone not a rightwing conspiracy conservatives...

Absolutely.. I used to get all my news here, then would verify it elsewhere..


There was literally no story how small that someone wasn’t posting..


I spent years learning every stitch of news first on ATS...


Now though..



Like I said... it doesn’t even have enough traffic to be the top return for “conspiracy forum “.

But censorship here is ran by unpaid mods not professionals..


If you think that doesn’t have an effect on the end result..

Ummmm, point proven. ATS is a GREAT place, the best place ever to come voice your opinions about the important issues of our day! Thank God for ATS!!!!



I've always understood actions the mods have taken against/for me. When explained...I totally understood.

That's why ATS is...if not the...best of it's kind.

True, but I see a definite ideological shift in how actions are implemented now that the control has moved to the right.

Conservative male domination; just the way it should be....and thank god for the advertisements, capitalism at work. Ironic that one of the ads is for an ad blocker....I come here for the irony and the cookies of course.
