Just wondering if anyone out there has noticed the extremely repetitive nature of the posts lately? if people would actually read through the forums or the website content, most of these long answered questions wouldn't need to be asked.

Well, thats the problem with Newbs, and too many members, but hey, gives you something to do.

It's a vicious circle, no doubt. I love the topics like,"I don't think aliens are real".

Anyone seen a good topic on deja vu lately?

No, but the boards are starting to generate deja vu like a HARRP device. The metaphysical feeling at times is so intense i've actually fallen out of my chair when reading the list of the "most recent posts".

Indeed.

But people come to knowledge from a different state of experience and being.

Why, only two hours ago, the fact that George W Bush is a reformed alcoholic was a revelation to many.

When someone post the same EXACT reply as you and it's right below what you posted. I'm like, DUH!! Did you not see that someone else said that very *same* thing already? I know I've done this..and I'm sorry, usually it's due to a very long thread, but when there are 3 replies, would it not hurt to read ALL the replies before posting the exact same thing someone else did?


OK, that's all the complaining from me, please resume your regularly scheduled programme

On repetitive, tautological, heard-it-just-before double posting:

How many times would you notice that the 'guilty party' has in fact constructed something that takes a couple of minutes, and by the time it's posted, a faster typist or more desperately at-the-ready ATS member has just said what they wanted to say, right over the top of them.

In such cases, who is the discourteous one?




You're right though. There are plenty who might read the first few responses in a long topic and chime in with something that has already been said by another person whose post they did not have the courtesy to read. 'Laziness'.

MA, that is of course the cause of people echoing what was just written. But sometimes people will repeat what someone said a long time ago. Those people are obviously not reading the thread, just the last two or three posts.

But for the main topic, I for one am not about to wade through all of ATS's threads before I create a new topic. How much time do you think I have on my hands? Probably the best thing to do is post the link for the original thread if you have it handy, or simply ignore the repetetive threads.

That sounds effective Freddie.

There was also a criticism directed at 'Newbs' who splash out their curiosity on an all-too-willing membership.

There ought to be some self-imposed standard of basic understanding before professing one's ignorance to the world at large.

For example, people who don't know what 'PNAC' is in the corrupt Bush administration's agenda could just plug in 'PNAC' in the ATS search function and have some effective summaries from the horse's mouth, and elsewhere.
