When i first joined ATS i have to admit to finding it a bind having to adhere to a set layout for threads and posts. Lots of information that i'm
still getting used to, and yes often getting it wrong still but i'm trying.
Yet after getting used to the system here, i find myself getting SO agrrivated by other sites and forums that are run so shodily!
I'm not just
talking about conspiracy sites, but others too. Call it petty but even something as simple as an author naming his thread in a way that gets you to
read the post, only to find that the post is full of crap, that one does my head in!
Again i admit i can be the worst for getting the thread formats wrong here, and i obviously fail to use spellcheck at times, but at least this site
forces us to concentrate on these minor points and subsequently gives us the most professional and factualy informative site on the web.
I was accused a while ago by a friend of being a little blinkered by hanging around only ATS most of the time, however i only have to browse other
sites to reasure myself why i do.
Yes this place may have it's idiots at times, does'nt everywhere? Big difference being that ATS either educates or denies these people. The help
here is unrivaled, as is the information. I just think this place is underappreciated at times, no sorry that was wrong, more a case of people
forgetting how lucky they are to be a part of a site like this when you compare it to the total mess you see on other forums.
As someone once said, "you don't know what you got till it's gone!" Imagine that one would ya!
Nice one ATS
Now i need a cuppa!
