Good morning SkepticOverlord. I was just wondering about your warning.
John Lear is post-banned until we sort these things out.
As a long-term member, he's aware that it's best to discuss issues with staff (especially site ownership) behind the scenes.
To be forthright, Simon, Springer, and myself (as well as other super moderators) have exchanged several messages this morning regarding Mr. Lear's apparent lack of respect for ATS membership. His lack of respect has been made clear in a consistently demeaning tone and style of thread involvement.
Yes, a major portion of discussion on ATS is indeed conspiracy theory, and we do make an exceptional effort to support the expression of theories that we (ATS owners) may disagree with. However, this action has absolutely nothing to do with Mr. Lear's theories (we've supported them with gusto), and everything to do with the way in which he treats ATS members.
