This is a call to intellectual arms.
I have been an observer of this site for several years because I appreciate the logical and academic approach to what most would not consider
mainstream news. I have recently begun posting my own topics for scholarly discussion. I wouldn't have done this if I didn't respect ATS and its
members and expect them to provide serious feedback.
Recently, however, I have read a lot of posts that rely on subjective experience as the basis to validate rather outlandish claims. "Open your eyes"
they say. "The proof is in ." This is not the tradition of ATS.
I call on you to use fact and logic to quell these posts. Respond in U2U to ask for references. ATS members are so proactive that these substandard
posts are propelled to the main page due to so many members calling posters out on weak arguments. Enough with indigo children and the US's deal with
Satan. Lets get some academic discussions up and make sure everyone who happens by this page is as impressed as I was four years ago. Ignore posts
that don't warrant discussion.
This is the best alternative topic forum on the internet. Lets clean it up and keep it that way.
