Hey everyone , Long time lurker here and I have to say this web site sure has changed. I used to come here for the latest UFO info and WEIRD CRYPTO stories. They are still there but seemed to be OVERSHADOWED by POLITICAL POST AFTER POLITICAL POST. Cluttered with threads that have meaningless topics just to stir conflict between two parties..

I remember post would get deleted just because it was an off topic post.

I see these posts/threads quite a bit. Even more so when democrats are losing.

I wonder if there's a connection.

Might be a conspiracy. . . . . .

I think you missed the last month or two on ATS then...

If you click on the "New" button up top there, you will see that ATS has been infected in its entirety with the Wu-Flu.

Glad you joined up finally and looking forward to you helping to make ATS great again with your insight!

You dog eating SOB! Be quite and let the "New" member who has "lurked" for a long time assume their new identity.

Welcome back! I recently did the same thing and left because of all the partisan politics. Alot of threads about the virus have the old ATS feel

Welcome!

I wonder if Google/FB censorship of alt-news affects ATS.. I used to see all sorts of weird and wonderful stories but now, nothing.. unless it's posted by a tabloid.

I'm fully with you on this. Before the whole COVID 19 thing I ften looked at the top topics page. Most of the threads were regarding US politics. More than half had the word Trump in the title. Most were from the Mud Pit. Almost none were conspiracy related.

This site just seems to have turned into a US political forum for people to sling abuse about left or right wing issues.

Regurgitating mainstream media slagging matches is not what this site was made for.

In my opinion there should be no flag ratings in the Mud Pit as it is just a free for all and adds nothing positive to the site.

We could always start reviving some of the older threads, but usually the OP for them has either passed on or has moved to a breakaway civilization hosted site. Forums that support Facebook reaction generate just as much revenue.

I agree. My new father in law loves a good conspiracy, and for a moment i wanted to tell him about this site....but then i would have to explain to him how awesome it USED to be, and that nowadays it was 99% politics....it is sad, i miss the old way. I dont even think i have posted or even replied to anything in years....

I've been here since then too and the thing you're not realizing is that politics often times is conspiratorial in nature. ATS is not just about Woo-Woo and Spookies. It's also about the Man Behind the Curtain and the conspiracy against mankind.

Welcome and glad you finally registered.

As a long time lurker myself, I prefer to stay involved in the more conspiracy/paranormal/unexplained topics. However, we live in a time of political turmoil and perhaps this forum conveyed to good conversations between opposing viewpoints.

Do you know how I want the world to work, and how I would like for its operate? We should start with treating every body with respect that deserves it and being there for one another. I refuse to align myself with the left or the right, when anybody asks me what my political affiliation is, I tell them that I'm an American.

I have to agree with you! This place has change a lot... Hopefully, it will come back to what it used to be!

I'm also a long time lurker and i agree, the focus on politics has sort of taken over. Very divisive
