Over the past few months, we've seen an increase in the number of threads posted to the
Breaking Alternative News
forum that don't really fit the criteria set forth on the
page. And in some cases, we're seeing what appears to be a shot-gun
effect of several submissions that have little to do with "alternative topics."
Let me point out some examples.
These threads are appropriate submissions for the "Breaking Alternative News" forum:
Put young children on DNA list, to target future offenders.
Obama's Pastor Blames America for 9-11
Lord Rothschild Backs John McCain
Debt Serfdom comes to America
These threads ARE NOT appropriate submissions for the "Breaking Alternative News" forum:
Wall Street fears for next Great Depression
J.P. Morgan Chase to buy Bear Stearns for $2 a share
Royal college warns abortions can lead to mental illness
Bush: 'The Market is Correcting itself'
The Intent of the "Breaking Alternative News Forum"
is to provide a single-source place to post relevant articles from other sources that are
less than 48 hours old. By relevant
we mean topics that related to the "conspiracy theory" and "alternative topics" themes of the
AboveTopSecret.com forums. Many of the threads we see in the first to pages of the "Breaking Alternative News Forum" should have been started in other
forums on ATS or AbovePolitics.
Our Staff Will be Cleaning Up The Forum
over the next few days to clear out the previous seven-days of incorrectly submitted threads. All
existing threads will be moved to other forums on ATS (none will be deleted). The intent is not to single anyone out or focus/unfocus attention on any
particular issue, but to demonstrate how the "Breaking Alternative News Forum" should look without staff intervention.
From This Point Forward, Incorrectly Submitted Threads Will Be Moved
to the appropriate forums on AboveTopSecret.com, BelowTopSecret.com, or
AbovePolitics.com. In the event the news submission is a duplicate of an existing topic in other forums, we may end up trashing it (unless it adds a
new or updated twist to the existing topic).
The Goal Is To Regain Focus On Our Core Reason For Being,
the intelligent and productive discussion of a broad range of "alternative topics"
that include conspiracies, paranormal, UFO's, political scandal/cover-up, government secrets, and more. By regaining this focus within the "Breaking
Alternative News Forum," it will be easier for our thousands of members and millions of readers to know where to look for what's happening RIGHT
in the world of "alternative topics."
Thanks, in advance, for your cooperation in helping to regain the appropriate focus in this important forum on ATS.
