Whoa, this sounds like some sort of self control.

How would one stir their stick into the poo if they did such?

I'm assuming I have a good idea of which poster lead to this idea. I'm not for mob rule but maybe a time limit between topics would work. For instance, a member can start two topics and then a 3 hour timer starts before they can start 2 new topics again?

Or...$1 to post a thread, with a $1 cash back if it makes the 'most flagged' list before dropping off the 'new' list. And $1 cash back for every 50 flags.

I don't claim my solution is the right answer but I sure know there is a major problem here that needs attention.

I agree when a single member makes multiple topics all relating to the same topic..lol. We're on the same page there.

They could try actually enforcing existing T & C .....
Then our govt. and LE can follow suit.

Then how about we have a system modeled after the electoral college? Since ATS is mostly pro-Trump the liberal members need to have their negative flags count for 5 or 6 times more than the right wing posters.. That way it evens out.


Ohhh My freeeeaking Gawd!

Here we are talking about a fictional negative flags and you are saying it isn't fair and pro-liberals should get more........

You gotta be kidding me.

This is why people dislike liberals.... 10 Negative flags for you!



Hey, you only get to give one...
And you have one left for the month..


I believe the people have spoken.

So let it be written.

So let it be done.

Or not, as the case may be.

I believe there is already a solid time limit between one thread and a second one. I remember the hectic session in the Theology forum a couple of years back, which probably inspired it (somebody tried to post a thread series in one night, starting with the "Index" thread).

I know. The last thing the right wing wants is anything to be fair.

And risk losing all the comedy and tragedy?
We need balance, not an echo chamber nor a topic war, which is what it is bound to devolve into.
I understand the desire to weed out the trolls, but, if we want a fair forum, they must be tolerated to some end I'd believe.

We had that site once, determined it was beneath us so we merged the two sites into a single ATS.
