Ok, let me start out with who I am and you will probably not like my post (or agree with it totally). I work in the IT environment and have done work in both public and private sectors. I have been following this site initially as a visitor just reading what people found interesting, then as a member who occasionally commented and/or liked some posts.

I have noticed quite a few posts are just exact copies of headlines from mainstream media such as Yahoo or CNN. If I wanted to view articles or comment from sites like that I would just go to them and do it. Not go to another unaffiliated website, copy/paste the information and then breaking it apart so you can insert your personal thoughts. I come to this website to get something different weather it be something not picked up by the main stream media, how it looks like on the other side of the story, or forbid an original thought.

I do not care if I hurt your feelings by this post; copying and pasting information is not a skill, it is not even a feature, it is a basic function. If you agree with me you are probably not part of the problem.

Have a great day.



I understand were you are coming from.

You want more originality and less main stream headline news.
Same here, and I am guilty of copy and paste. I generally stay away for MSM, and look into subjects myself.

Research.

I find alot more obscure news and Ideas for other places other than here.

Some many people stuck on the political stuff, they are ignoring the rest of whats going on.

And there is alot going on !

Just a small look at what I check out everyday , because my interests lies in science and technology.....

www.newsnow.co.uk...

It finds sources from all over the world , not the MSM .

Everything Fox News says is true. Everything CNN and MSNBC say is fake news. It's very simple. And OAN, my God, everything that is said on OAN comes from the mouth of the Almighty himself!!!

There was a time when this site was more about Aliens and UFOs than anything else

It has been overrun with Politics and political conspiracy

It's easier to make a pun on the Thread title. Can't be serious all the time, it will drive a person nuts.

I thought that there used to be something about not using acronyms in the T&C. Can't find it now. Maybe ATS has consigned itself to being like Twitter.

Perhaps you are thinking of this one;

I remember it being around the English mandate. I suppose it was metered text messaging that caused the explosion of acronyms rather than Twitter. AAARMSWYPPC (Acronyms are a real money saver when you're paying per character).

IIRC still throws me sometimes; like "That's a religious order, I should know this."
"Something something Roman Catholic" LOL

I wish they could look him up again and ask him if he still likes turtles. The footage doesn't look that recent so I would guess he may well be an adult now who is possibly completely embarrassed by that interview and has changed his name legally 3 times.

Why even bother to type real words!

Somedays I have to keep the Acronym dictionary open in order to read posts. Then people just seem to make up more on the fly. It took me a couple of years to figure out that LOL meant Laughing out Loud rather than Lots of Luck.


Yeah, I get fed up with TLAs, too.

Thor is equivalent to 10 men. But no it's not him.
