I'll take you up on that coffee. Put sugar in it, lots of sugar, actually, forget the coffee, just bring a cup of sugar.

Really, was that necessary? Just contributes to the Fanatical Divide.


okay. that's the way you see it. that is your 'bias'. the fanatical divide is a part of the real world, and to try and eliminate it here at ATS is not only silly, but contrary to the very purpose of discussion boards.


Originally posted by intrepidPersonally I see no purpose to this thread. It's a "Wah, things aren't going my way" thread.


why are you on this thread, then? i've got a real thick skin. it's not so much 'wah', as 'WTF!?'. ATS is a tiny mote in god's eye. yet, it IS god's eye, and that's the ONLY reason i care.

i don't think you are a neocon .
you're actually a very sensible poster, but that's just my 'left wing' bias

I'm not going to post in that manner, picking apart a post point by point, that may even be a part of the problem.

Humor aside, why am I in this thread? Because I see that it isn't serving any constructive purpose. Damn man, you've been here longer than I have, have you no respect for the problems that have been around lately?

Think about the site man and not yourself. I don't get my ass in the air when someone doesn't reply to my u2u's and yes that happens to me too.

Sarcasmo has a helluva point, staff here have lives and commitment outside of ATS. Once in a while too we make mistakes too, like deleting a u2u that wasn't responded too, right DeltaNine?

Ok... so thats a cyber-latte for Intrepid, and a cup of sugar for Sarc. Be right back!

intrepid, it is BECAUSE i am sensitive to the problems of the board that i started this thread.
however, the idea that censorship will solve the problem of censorship just doesn't work for me.
this board has historically rocked, because of the open atmosphere of discussion.
in the light of the polarisation in the outside world, an open atmosphere is needed to find some kind of fusion of philosophies and information. this process will only be 'fidel' if it is a natural process of 'survival of the fittest' information. sweeping unpopular or controversial views under the rug because they are 'biased' is naive, and brownshirted.

MAJOR PROPS to seekerof for moving the ritter thread into a more suitable forum.

now, it can die in peace,

I highlighted the point that I found interesting. Also, you stated that this thread would not have come into being if an Admin would have responded to your u2u. Again, all about you.

I see no indication that you have any concern about the site by starting this thread, you only want attention. I find that not only sad but also very selfish.

Where's the straw? How do you expect me to have my sugar without a straw? Wow, just wow.

So sorry Sarc. Do you want a normal straw, or a twisty one and a cocktail umbrella?

I'll go with the more sophisticated normal straw, and an umbrella.

Here you go, a normal straw, and an umbrella. Enjoy!

okay. censorship works for YOU. YOU feel that the person who is typing this reponse to YOUR theories(can i say 'me' without being accused of something?) is selfish because this person wishes an open atmosphere in order to foster honest, constructive discussions. whatever works for YOU.
as far as wanting attention goes, OF COURSE I WANT ATTENTION! do you think i do all this reading and researching and slow typing for MY benefit? if i was only interested in MY benefit, I would be a neocon.


i'm a 'lefty' by the current dominant board rhetoric. this 'hated' title carries with it the most disgusting of all things, .....caring about your fellow humans. very selfish of ME, indeed.

I hate to say this billybob but maybe ATS is going in a different direction than you are. The recent drama has pointed out some differences, some will not be able to deal with them, you may be one. I've never seen ATS as a soapbox for my views, an avenue of discussion for them maybe, but it was never about me. The betterment of the board was always paramount.

I hope that you take my words in the manner in which they are meant, not as a condemnation but a plea to open yourself up to getting the site back to where it was, where people don't take automatic postures.

I'm saying this because you're saying that
.

That isn't the ATS I signed up for. Will you help us all?

I'm not referring to that. I'm refering to that picture you posted and the events of the last week, complete with light show and dry ice.

I'VE always seen ATS as a soapbox and clearing house for MY views. the way I see it, most people are here for the same reason. perhaps you are the last selfless philanthropist left standing.
however, from MY perspective, there are two types of visitor. the loud mouthed shnooks, like ME, who like to SHARE oUr views of reality with others, in the hopes of mutual enlightenment, ....and the quiet mouthed shnooks, who only read the opinions and information of others(lurkers).

i don't give a crap about the board. i serve no master.
my agenda is truth. truth cannot breathe in a brownshirted enviroment.
if this board becomes a land of brownshirts, it will probably be awhile before anybody realises i'm not here anymore. and noone will care. not even me.
but, while i am here, and enjoying the enviroment that led me here in the first place, i will seek to fend off the insidious creep of fascism.

that's not what YOU signed up at ATS for?
clear. let's agree that we are different people with different views and different agendas.

and then, we can discuss why we have differences.

I will care. Good people need to stand up and not be scared of what they have to say.

Wow you make a statement like that and you expect the owners and maintainers of this PRIVATE site to care about you and your concerns? These people put in a lot of time to make this site enjoyable for everyone, yet you seem to think that it is made for your sole use! How stunningly selfish!
