Who's got money on the General being a former member of TBATS?

He could be. He acts like he has been here before, I think he is a banned member

I, as one of the "seekers of knowledge" the General so eloquently promised a leadership role to, in the REALWORLD I might add, would like to throw my gauntlet down.

For rarely is seen such wordy pulchritude upon this battle field of wits. Why our forebears would tremble with lusty and high minded jocularity for such a man as this.

Who dares to enter the ring against his brand and device? Who dares indeed...

Will it be YOU gentle reader? Or will we all shrink and skulk away like timid nematodes? Will we hail him as our Chief or simply call him Bob?

What stands to be recreated is in danger of being demolished. Only the strong of will and sure of foot can tread these perilous lands of woe and heartbreak.

Without such leadership our sails will luff and our course go askew. We will wander the vast and great seas alone and in moral terpitude.

Oh these are GREAT DAYS at hand! Rise up and be counted! Toss aside the salad of mediocrity! Bathe in the dressing of grand thought and illusion!

General, SIR,

It seems that the weaklings around here are still not cognizant of your nature and true plan of attack. As you yourself would say, a confused enemy is a conquerable one.

Sir, request that you keep posting, as every response here that doesn't 'get it' makes my day better.

I'm dead serious....

I'm not poking fun. I haven't laughed this hard in years, and it's not at the material, or the's the delivery. Very much how we laughed with that drill sergeant in Full Metal Jacket...

"How tall are you son?"
"6'4" Sir!"
"Jesus, I didn't know they could stack # that high!"

"Where are you from soldier?"
"Texas sir!"
"Texas? Only two things come from Texas....Steers and Queers, and I don't see any horns on you boy..."

You should seriously consider stand-up....

I hope you stick around...

R. Lee Ermey you are not.
He'd barBq your sack with some shrimpers.

You say that the more intelligent will wait to respond.
I quote patton. a general.

"A good solution applied with vigor now is better than a perfect solution applied ten minutes later. "

Beware general,
The supreme court overturned the sodomy laws of this country. I think you're experiencing the backlash of that decision.

i have also been observing your site 4 a couple of months. and for the exception of those great bases of knowledge that i have indirectly come to know(seeker,ma,val,dr etc) it seems there is a lot of information that gets the porn fluff treatment. i pray for the wisdom of the citizens of this ats community.

Welcome to the boards GeneralDilemma,
The only way you are going to be cleaning up this board is by action. So far there seems only to be inaction.

And if you are going to be changing the way people think in these boards, you're going to have to do it by presenting facts and hard evidence just as we do.

There are a lot of theory's out there about a lot of different topics. We post what we hear, see, and can back up with facts and sometimes when related to things personal, no facts. But others accept it as face value, as the poster could be lying or telling the truth. But most people are here to help.

Many things are happening in the world and we all want to know what is happening on Earth, below the surface of it, above the surface, and into space.

There are a lot of intelectuals on this board who research many of the topics discussed, and do so in very fine detail.

We are a bunch of scientists and spiritualists, or both, put together on these boards.

You want to clean up our psychotic, conspiracy theory, paranoid attitude, you better bring some evidence that those conspiracies are just fake and there is no truth about them.

Hard evidence is usually what we go on.

Bring it.

I had a fairly lengthy u2u discussion with a friend today, part it concerning the General. I will now voice on the board along the same lines as I discussed then.

First let me say that what bothers me about portions of the ATS community is the intolerance to each other's preferences. There are posters on here who are 100%, tunnel vision, conspiracy freaks...DR, MA, CA...go figure, it's a conspiracy board! BUT, there are those of us who are not. I'm not. I left for a couple of days last week because of the incessant talk of this board getting back to its sole intent (conspiracy) and I really can't contribute much toward that. Probably less than 1% of my posts have anything to do with any conspiracy...and usually AGAINST the theory. So the meter would be way down on comatose if it were left to me. BUT, I do believe I can bring something to the board that makes it more well-rounded.

Then there are those who engage in what others would consider inane banter...or pointless noise chats. For example, in my books, most of MBT's posts fall into this. BUT, that's just MY opinion. And when all is considered, MBT helps the well-roundedness of this community.

Even FM brought something to this board...unfortunately, because he couldn't hold his temper or even conceive of reflecting on the other's side of the discussion, his irritation outweighed the value he added...boot!

My whole rambling point is this, why can't those who are griping about the General, demanding he be banned, and in general not enjoying him, go away from this and other General threads and leave the rest of the people who are enjoying this alone?

There is merit in entertainment. There is merit in just stepping back from the extreme seriousness every once in a while. I'm telling you, if you don't throw in a little inane banter every once in're going to find yourself mutilating your daughter's guinea pig because you think its a spy! IT HAPPENS!

I just wish people could practice walking away from a thread they find offensive, and leave it for those who don't. Heck, let's do that in real life too...ok?

hey. everyone has a part to play in entertainment.
mine just happens to be the part of the evil foil.
it's more fun for me to be anti - colonel and general.

People were talking of banning? Jesus people, get a thicker skin! Maybe the General is right and there are a bunch of namby pamby little thumbsucking teet suckers here!
What's with the "ban this person" and "ban that person"? If you can't take someone's heat...stay off their threads...jeez..

I can't believe this thread has topped 80 posts. I really don't understand the intrigue adn why this poster got some people so hot. Who cares what the poster thinks, let him/her rant and move on to more fruitful discussion. If you want to laugh then banter with this poster a bit.

But to have two threads going, and up to some pretty high numbers is odd. I guess some of the posters on this board have little of importance to do with their time.
