I don't think you can ban politics here but political threads should be held to a higher standard and members who post nothing but political BS should face tougher scrutiny ... one member springs to mind who shall remain nameless.

I'd say put an end to the political mud pit , it just encourages political BS.

It's literally 95% political

What were you saying again?

The forum is not what it used to be.

I doubt it is even a cointelpro now. Just a plain old arguing ground.

Lol. Did i say it was trumps fault? No. I said it started since the trump administration, not because of the trump admin.

You asshats who turn everything into left vs right politics destroyed ATS.

You're a virus. A virus that turns every discussion into politics.


And right there is the perfect example of your complaint. Look in the mirror, sir, that's exactly what you're doing.

By the looks of your post history, I'd say you have an emotional investment in the losing team.
Is taking it out on randos helping?

Understand able, but were not learning anything and furthermore we are not focusing the website to be a pinpoint of conspiracy and interesting ideas.

How many people decide not to post because the top threads are politics?

Im complaining at left vs right politics. It wasn't a problem during the Obama admin because people were open to obama criticism.

The problem is not discussing the idea of politics, it is abiding by the duelism of it all.

Problem with mud pits is they attract insects which go on to spread disease.

You didn't just "comment", you authored a bunch.
Now your calling members names.
Why?

ATS is built on user content.

It is also funded by site traffic.

Blurry Bigfoot pictures and lousy 911 theories don't generate nearly as much traffic as politics.

Now I must ask a question...
Why do you read political posts?
I scroll through the new posts and when I see something posted on tarot cards I don't click.

When I see Martha Stewart's show is on PBS I just keep scrolling instead of writing a letter to PBS complaining about Martha Stewart.

You can complain of course, it's your right but I just don't understand why you bother.

I don't even know politics but could rant for hours.....let it go, have your say and be done with it.
As I said, I don't even know what left or right even means, I just let the political people figure that out...and they aren't doing a good job so I get your frustration.

Do what I do, go look at a puppy video or a cute cat video. LOL

Most of us here are guilty of participating in the pit, including you. I didn't join here for political discussion but it's like a bad accident, you can't stay away from it. Remove the pit AND enforce decorum in the other forums and this site goes back to a conspiracy site. I'd stick around for that, even if others wouldn't. The problem isn't with the Trump supporters as much as it is the Trump haters who are far more vocal and nasty.

Yea i don't care. I called you a moron. I edited it out because it was rude. But you are a moron for immediately resort to calling me a communist lefty because i dared say this problem started since the trump admin.

You are a perfect example of the problem.

You immediately call me a lefty because i dare mention trumps name in a slightly negative light.

I criticized obama alot. Now it's a fuking civil war in here if you critize POTUS. You're a virus.


You have no idea get of the mushies.

Your abusive foul mouthed misplaced attacks are childish, check my quote of your torrent you called me a bit more than just a moron.

You have no self control and think you can police this site.

Get of your high horse and as said the mushies - if you dont like the site then dont log in and save yourself the shame of lack of self control.

I noticed a mod posted before me before and again before this post so be interesting to see what action is taken in response to your contravention of terms and conditions IN THE EXTREME.

You say you dont care, i know you do. Or this thread wouldn't exist.

Get a grip.

The only virus here is the likes of you.

The insects he’s referring to are trump supporters.
Which leads us right back to the problem.
