Can't you just go directly to the forum of your choice and ignore the things that don't interest you. That doesn't seem so hard to me. Am I missing something?

We go through our ebbs and flows...

Politics/Trump everything slowed the readership for a while

I agree with most of the posters. One person in particular in this thread has contributed probably more that 99% of the rest of the type that caused the downward spiral. There's nothing but politics here now, and when there is it's ignored or totally derailed by politicrap. To state otherwise is either totally reactionary or completely calculated.

We have a jackass president. His predecessor was equally jacktacular, as was the one before him, the one before him. Everyone needs to get over it.... Our system is broken. That's all there is to it. I give zero damns about seeing the same old rehashed crap with a sparkly new label. But someone posts a grainy turd of a UFO video, gets ridiculed, something is implied about Trump, derailed, dead. Someone posts a Bigfoot photo or something of the like, that somehow gets parlayed into something to do with Obama or the Clinton foundation. This site and most of the old clearnet conspiracy sites are screwed if people don't stop playing into the 2 party bs. It won't happen, the same people that used to contribute past political garbage have been lost to the same partisan trash. One can dream, though.

Interesting. Maybe people no longer believe in UFOs, ghosts, nano thermite, FEMA camps, etc... Or maybe some government agency is locking them all up in an asylum.



And did someone just euthanize the star children or did they just go back to their planet of origin? You never hear those people anymore and they used to be like flies on a pile of horse crap around here.

Apparently since I stopped coming here more than once a month because a thread about a kitten being rescued from a tree can't survive more than 3 posts before political derailing.

You can go to sub-forums directly by using the forums tab found at the top of your tab. I do that to look up topics I'm interested in that I haven't seen news from in a bit, as I do not scan this site all the time.
I appreciate how this forum is set up overall. Yes there are a lot of politics. Politics are the biggest CT of all time.
We have options to find the things we are interested in.

Is that not the fault of of the posters? Not the thread creators, or moderators, or site admin?

The world is politically charged right now. Sadly.

What is your definition of political derailing?

Everybody treats everyone like they're in the mudpit. It's impossible to post something about aliens, paranormal stuff, or anything without getting ridiculed for it. The is no decorum anymore.

Thread starters have gotten lazy, too. Like, hey watch this YouTube video lazy.


How many times I want to release investigative results in the paranormal covering 40 plus years and I see it is a waste of time.

I agree. You probably are right that it would be and is a huge waste of time.

I miss the 20 to 30 great minds that used to post here with some regularity, too. I agree that the "T" virus has been the greatest detriment to decent discourse, but there are always other factors.

All I can offer is be the change you want to see.

Folks came here for ufos abd mars pics and got hate against trump and hate against liberals.

I am now in many better conspiracy sites than this one. The owners don’t care. They got rich. Use google. There are others

Here are your stats...

ATS Statistics

Down 11% the last three months.

If you have noticed in the political spectrum, a lot of leftist heavy hitters here have either been banned or gave up the last 9 months... it's pretty hard to defend American left politics right now because... derp.

So there has been a traffic drop because of that.

As for the rest, it has always had its ups and downs here.

Ats got away from its roots. It’s a political site now. None of use people fighting for human freedom and truth care about that. The owners use to pay for guests to come on. They quit

The owners got rich and don’t log in anymore. This site is dead. Politics killed it. The wheelhouse was never politics. Who here reading this was around in 2003 like me? Raise your hand. There are just a few. Back then this site was a niche that filled a void in discourse. Now it’s friggin drudge 2.0. And i don’t even care. There are other sites we all moved to

You guys realize that this place use to be so active I could click new topics and get the slightest breaking news here before new.groogle? I was shocked when a volcano spewed ash 5 miles into the atmosphere in Asia and the first thread was like 6 hours later.

The site is dying . It’s sad but it’s online evolution. The strong will survive.

Hint all of the old guard use the same names on the other forums

I'm not mad. I just understand how to have a debate.

I'm sorry what you believe is not proven by facts.

Sorry:

Yet... and I know you know.... all of your superstar experts are now on other sites. This is drudge 2.0. Sure your numbers seem ok. You guys quit catering to the people that made you.


Lots of republicans and democrat fighters join.... great for you . It’s becoming a # site. Congrats. If everyone would just use friggin adblocker it might actually get your attention. Site dead ..... try google people
