I just want to say something serious for a moment.
Many on this thread have been critical and have blamed, actually blamed, members for the sites potential demise.
It's as if some are saying that people should have not expressed themselves.
Ironically, for many members, the internet will soon be very monochromatic and many of those voices you have blamed will be silenced by giants like Google.
There will be fewer and fewer sites that are open to ALL ideas.
That's not something just to be sad about, it's really something to mourn.

I can bet the moment ATS became a platform for far right nutters to roam free instead of the mostly healthy discussion there was before 2015 it started losing visits. This is a far cry from the ATS I visited way back in 2009 and from the time I made most posts. Deny ignorance stopped being the motto long ago. Enjoy your slow fade.
To deny something, is to accept ignorance about the thing youre denying - never like that slogan, but like what it tries to say.
Please stop making this about left or right - idiots are on both sides, they are on ALL sides... Yes, there is to much ridicule for peoples beliefs on this site - but you and me are no different if we starts to blame left or right for it.
