ATSNN is my focus of activity on the boards. I enjoy bringing news from all genres to ATSNN that bring debate and thought provoking responses. I firmly believe that ATSNN has the potential to become a top ranking news feed with all the latest and greatest of all international news sites.
My work on ATSNN and my submissions speak for themselves and I am sure many of you have got to know a little bit about me from the articles and replies I make.
A bit about me.
I am a 38 year old Australian mother of six rugrats. I am a Computer Technician/Internet Consultant/Writer with a love of life and everything it has to offer. I have journeyed through many walks and come to many crossroads on my exploration of life and I wouldn't ever change a thing or experience as they are all such a valuable part of the making of me. I am currently studying part time for a degree in Internet Studies and writing my first novel.
My hobbies are keeping up to date with current affairs, photography, showing my kids a love of life and the environment, travel, reading, writing, astronomy, numerology, gardening, indigenous cultures, Star Trek Voyager, The Internet phenomena, history and of course conspiracies. I have many many more loves and likes that you will discover by reading posts authored by me.
My avatar which was created by me is of Ma'et - The Goddess of Truth Justice and the New World order. That's me....... Truth and Justice..... two ethics I firmly follow and believe in strongly. Ma'et is also the first two letters and last two letters of my name Margaret (If you stuck my avatar in a mirror that's what you would see).
As far as experience is concerned - None as past council member here on ATS/BTS/PTS but I am proudly a mega moderator on forums.windrivers.com... another huge member board for computer technical support. I also created, admin and run my daughters forum at www.rejectz.com... --
In real life I was a union delegate and member of the NSW labour council for many years before I became disillusioned with the political scene in the world today and the two party preferred system and decided I could make more of a difference freelance.
If you vote for me, you get me, all of me, I am who I am and i am a firm follower of my own moral ethic code - You get what you give.

- Because you all really really want to vote me in
Thank You All

How do you think ATSNN can continue to try and challenge larger news organizations. And, finally, and perhaps most importantly, what do you think needs to be done about the drift that has occured within ATSNN from it's original goal?
Very well said.

What are your opinions on the stricter standards kept for ATSNN?
There are some issues that come up from time to time that need attention:
1) Quality of writing and proper submission format. We're looking at ways to reward or otherwise call-out stellar submissions, rather than smack-down marginal ones.
2) Quality of source article. Using blogs or highly-biased sources shouldn't happen.
3) Bias creeping into the opening intro. Stating your opinion or spin is fine, but it should stay out of the intro.
4) A seeming proliferation of right or left leaning articles with very little "really unbiased" content.
I think ATSNN is more dynamic - and more interesting.
Everyone brings their own unique energy to the news board - and sometimes it's positively buzzing. There are new voices, new perspectives, new interests.
...I would like to see some kind of advice 'program' for reporters - some of the glitches are quite minor, but they can prevent good submissions from moving forward.

I have had differences with you Mayet, as I have had differences with subz, as with many others. Undoubtedly, our differences and disagreements have made us all stronger, in general.
Anyhow, after reading your post, I could not help but notice, sense, and feel your passion and sincerity for ATSNN. You, as with subz, as with many others, are great members and contributors to ATS, as a whole. Your dedication and committment to this community cannot be questioned. You are both assets.

More questions Mayet.
Would you please comment on SkepticOverlord's statement:
"When ATSNN was first launched, it was intended as the current events news portal for a very large conspiracy theory community. As such, the intent was that we have a primary focus on analysis of major media news as it relates to ATS topics."

...How do you interpret this statement? Do you think it's valid to have a news portal that analyzes major media news as it relates to conspiracy topics? Short of dictating such a policy by facist order, do you see that even being possible? Can it happen? Should it happen?
