Most of you have been around longer than most of us, obviously. You have a deeper ATS perspective. Perhaps a deeper connection to the conspiracy
My question to you, is: what’s your take on the current situation(s)? Local, national, political, global, etc. We live in some super strange
times and the future is looking bleak. We just ran through one of the toughest years in our recent history. Epstein, Clinton, Trump, certain UFO
disclosures from several governments. Cancel culture, BLM/ANTIFA/Proud Boys. And of course...COVID.
Information is no longer information, it is all biased propaganda. Conspiracies went from whacked out nut jobs to “hey they were right all along”
to “Jesus Christ they’re all Trump supporting white supremacists”! (Obviously those are extreme and unfair generalizations, but I’m sure you
get the gist).
Speaking only for myself and not assuming to represent any other person....what is your personal take on all “this” going on as it relates to what
the conspiracy works was, is, and can be?
I am not a moderator, but have been an active member of ATS since the early 2000s and I can tell you there has been a massive change in the culture
and environment. Originally, no matter how crazy an idea might be considered somewhere other than ATS, the ATS community gave it a fair shake and
seemed to only critique the critical thinking, supporting data/references, and compliance with forum etiquette. Today, all too often, it seems no
better than the comment section of every online news site.

Been on this site watching for some-time before I joined (was 20 odd when I joined thinking the world owed me something) and have been a member for a
while now growing as a person too. Have had my share of conspiracy overdose as anyone will have at times, make a fool of yourself or come across
arrogant and get a telling off for it (so to speak - going full batman at times) many a time but you can't blame anyone for saying otherwise when they
do not understand what you think you understand or vice versa and learn from the interactions.
Worse if you make it worse posting mistakes at times like any human being can do. To me, that is the problem, folks forget the humanity behind this
Also that is a hard thing to manage when confronted or slandered for a viewpoint. I know of it personally in my life either way offline or online. But
that is what makes this site unique in my eyes. Always will as long as it lasts, moderation, in moderation by people trying to remain unbiased as best
as they can as people.... if that makes sense, and that is dying a death these days.
All the best and long may it continue
Regardless... if the site does go down... take a bow... all of you
So.. hold your chin up high...
PS: yes, I am dramatic but by fricken God id give my left testicle to get back on the stage now to blow the feckers away in laughter, so sick of
this!!! This site keeps me a bit sane in an insane world
