You know that's just not true.
The Mud Pit is one forum.
When seen, as it usually is, outside mud is removed.

Not only that, be the change you wish ATS to be.

The mud pit is one forum
riots in the BLM is just one minor aspect of the whole protest
Guess what people take away from it though when discussing it.

Much like the news or anything else, what gets attention is the absurd, and on this site, the absurd is the extreme partisanship that is welcomed. You can deny it all you want, but you can't deny it for long because the doors are shutting from ...gee, I don't know...total mystery.

This isn't a place anymore to find out the cool haps about aliens, bigfoot, reptilian overlords, AI taking over, etc...sure, those threads are here, but overall its just a endless stream of the worst political takes you can get on any forum out there.
as of right this moment, 9 out of the top 15 topics are mud pit..this isn't ATS anymore, its mudpit.com and unless you have some backers who want to have just that, the model is unsustainable.

Who knows...maybe things can turn around at the 11th hour. I know a lot of people love the mud pit, but its my firm belief that its an anchor while its tied to the rest of the site.


Anyone "quoting for twooth" should quote this, this is the best summary of what's really going down.

I mourn for what ATS used to be (hint - not a politically polarised sh!tt!ng contest)

They can’t read that. It would blow their mind to have their narrow worldview shattered....so Trump’s fault.

...this kinda blew my mind

You're saying Hannity mods were like "take a look at this right wing jackass" and banned you? Thats...pretty impressive actually.


This might come as a shock, please. . . take a seat.

I don't agree with all conservative viewpoints.

But then again, I'm not an ideologue where I have to contort myself to justify the actions or beliefs of the ideology that some obey.


And Thats All Awesome

I and Hannity (or a surrogate) were arguing about term limits.

I felt that they were necessary and he (obviously) didn't.

What happened to the intelligent, sometimes heated debates , that used to make this forum exciting and interesting???


Where are you ATS
Will you rise like a mythical Phoenix and give us back the forum we used to love ???

Where is the forum whose moto was DENY IGNORANCE

ATS has been inundated with too many followers not enough leaders.
So in essence many want to follow the group think usually politically based (or be part of some in crowd like we are still in high school) and not follow themselves.
This causes for continuous parroting of what verbiage that is generated projected from the social pyramid scheme top down to the receptive at the foundation.

In turn limiting opportunities for potential sensitive Conspiracy theory dialogue as many may feel discomfort sharing their experiences and ideas now due to fear of being attacked...

So now the over inundation provides many spectrums of group think discussions usually associated with similar social pyramid scheme projected data.


Also the Aliens/Angels have been here believe it or not. They are waiting for this EA*RTH schools Graduates to graduate-complete class.
The separation of the Spiritual wheat and chaff.
Spiritual undergraduates will get another chance next go around. Maybe some of the graduates this go around will be back to get you then👽

Yo Man , The World is Presently going to Hell in a Hand Basket , and the Stress of that on Every Human on this Planet is becoming Unbearable Right Now . There are More Pressing Matters to Discuss here on ATS other than quibbling about a Display of " Poor Decorum , Don"t you Think > ?


Yo man, I think the OP is right
I actually think youre proving his point. This kind of behavior is what makes intelligent people turn away from this site.
How dare you, tell other people whats importen too them and what they are allowed to talk about?
Who named you the thought police of ATS and told you to tell people what they can and can not talk about?
Do you think you change anything by talking about these very importen issues, which you took a break from, just to tell someone else how unimporten their views and concerns are.

To answer your question - NO, it is NOT more importen to discuss what you deem worthy of discussion, on the contrary, it is very very importan to stand up against Tyrans like yourself and thought police who think they should decide what others are allowed to think and speak about.
How arrogant can you be!?!

That's as maybe but to say this hasn't turned into a hotbed for the Right Wing is to deny ignorance !


How many Donald Rumsfeld fans do you see here?
How about George W?

ATS is anti-establishment not "Right Wing".


That's funny, Trump is part of the establishment, most anti-establishment folks I know here in the UK are lefties but no, here at ATS most of the brits are Right Wing too

Can you find one of the Right Wing Brits who supports Rumsfeld or Cheyney?

I'm just assuming too but it seems all those labelled Right Wing are very poor examples of the Right.

So everybody, or most people needs to be liberals before you can enjoy ATS??

Does it also matters to you if people are black or white??
Or if people are christians, muslims or atheist?
How about jews, are jews allowed??

To me, a politican is a politican - they are ALL bad
Most people on ATS can agree on one thing, we all want freedom/truth. But our definition of it, and how to get there is all different - but we want the same. Why shouldnt everybody just be allowed to be here?

Shouldnt everybody be different? Or would you rather live in a world where everybody thinks and says the same - a world where everybody is basicly yourself? That sounds terrifying to me!

Well I started as a dumb hippy and I really think that ATS was a haven for generally Liberal beliefs.

I still think it is.

As far as I can see, anyone who supports Trump is a no good peacenik.

Hitler said the same about jews, do you think he was part right, its a similar line of thinking, yeah?

ETA: Since trump supporters are worthless in your oppionen, you wouldnt stand up against anybody who would try to, lets say gas them, would you?

I mean, iam not a conservative, but iam no liberal either, so my concern is this: Am I next??

I said they are no good peaceniks.

Just like the Right used to call the Left back in the Vietnam days.

It was a failed attempt at humor.

As a dumb Liberal hippy I will always lean towards the dirty peaceniks! That's why I like Trump.

If youre saying you dont want trump supporters here, your wrong - like hitler was
If youre saying in your own fun and teasing way, that you dissagree with them - fine, invite some more liberals to this site so they can support your view - please do that.

But their will allways be a majority and a minority of beliefs in a site like this - and that is how it should be.
Dont tell people they are wrong, tell them what you think is right - then maybe people will start to agree with you

Fair enough, that was what i was thinking.
The Hitler example is just a good way to get my point across, we need to be more united, not divided and everybody should be allowed to speak their mind

We keep looking for a bogeyman to blame, maybe we should start to look for some solutions

You're obsessed with Chainey and Rumsfeld, that's history, not current events. The past few years I've seen the US political landscape change in bizarre ways. Sometimes it seems that the Left are acting like the Right used to, sometimes they don't but get accused of it and I hear Lefties in America talking and I realise they are way more Left than I am. I think in US Politics I'd be considered Centrist but here I can be proud Leftie.
