Right here in this thread.
Chances are, if this really does scare and confuse the OP too much to rejoin the thread at this time, she still may very well be still READING what
we've talked about since her departure. I WANT her to know we are combining our knowledge to solidify some of the statements she's made. It will
advance the thread greatly, so please, relate.
My views on the thread as it stands...(Bullhorn on)
If we keep driving off new members by assaulting them with poignant, but aggressive demands while they're still at the point of hesitation to post
at all, we are cutting the legs out from under ourselves. Lurkers become members because they relate to stuff ATS contains. They're not all hoaxers,
guys. To not allow a member to relax and be at ease while they relate their tale is, at the least, rude and at the most, a violation of T&C. Don't
make any mistake. I have read every Term and Condition the 3-As wrote and I'll scour them to the letter to keep this kind of assault OUT of any
thread I participate in. We can't be so intent on the answers that we forget that, legitimate or hoax, the PERSON is just that, a person. And as I
like to point out in my siggie-
When someone comes to ATS with an experience or a "story" to tell they will receive the courtesy and the ability to share their experience without
being accused of hoaxing, called a liar, rudely interrogated, badgered or ill treated in any way. -Springer 8-22-07
This member of ATS, devilhisself, did NOT receive the courtesy and the ability to share their experience. She gave us the beginning, but, was never
allowed to continue before being bullied out. She was not a stone-hard "typical" ATSer and veteran of the trenches. She was a greenhorn who was not
welcomed into camp and trained, but, killed for meat. And that's NOT what we are going to turn into. Other than telling riley he would never
understand, these were her last words here:

That just sucks.
Come on back, devilhisself, you have much more story to tell. You have opened minds and made people look at your city without pity. We found evil
there whether rumored or fact.
Tell us more.
