I post on here once in a while, way too often for my liking, I try to be totally honest and not sound like im just writing for the sake of someone
else reading it, but its a forum, and I know ATS is about information and not so much about ego, but when you need to have 5000 points to talk about
illicit substances when erowid and the lycaeum provide such for free, it makes me wonder if ATS is just out to promote self indulgence. I mean I love
this site, I cant find any other place where rationality is held so highly in a public forum, but it just seems a bit funky to exclude any particular
It just seems weird, like, if I was completely against drugs, and I found out ATS's RATS section was full of drug posts, I would be very skeptical of
ATS's motto, deny ignorance. Its not very denying of ignorance to ignore entire subjects. If the truth turns out to be that there are a lot of
people on ATS who use illegal substances, and post in RATS about it, then ATS does not deny ignorance, really, it promotes it because it says you have

be the motto here if thats the way it is.
mods feel free to delete this post and ignore everything Ive said. just deem it as ignorance and deny it. or move it to RATS. lol
I guess thats the price of selling out. "but we have to do it, how else will more people be more aware of these subjects? We'll just hide the drug
stuff so we can hook line and sinker everyone and not seem bias"
Its like being in church, and I can be totally honest with the pastor, until it comes to aliens or shamans.
The fact that drug subjects are put aside in their own forum really keeps people from being completely honest about how drug use plays into everyones
Do you want to come to ATS and have people pretending they dont smoke weed just like at work or at church? No, you come to ATS to deny ignorance.
Just putting in my opinion. I dont know how much it matters not having like a thousand points or whatever, but thats what it is.
Im just concerned for the straight edger who actually learns a lot of great ways to be a better citizen and how to deny ignorance, to come to find ATS
was filtering my experience by putting would be real life conversation content, into another forum due to its content, and that content containing the
drug posts, I would wonder if my experience on ATS was truly genuine, or if ATS was trying to say something about drugs by keeping it hidden, and then
I would wonder who the bad/good guy is all over again.
