ATS management asks one thing basically from us, and that is...
be something resembling polite. Other than cannabis, there are, as near as I can see, very few taboo subjects, and I've been here long enough that
I'd like to think I'd have noticed others.
Some threads are closed due to repetition. Most hoaxes aren't even closed. They are labled for what they are, that's all.
You know what? It's their sandbox, we play by their rules, we don't like it, we are certainly welcome to take our opinions elsewhere.
We can't swear? Big flippin' deal, learn a few new words maybe?
CIA counter intel/NSA coinintel/Illuminati/bogeyman of the day? Oh, grow the hell up, not everything is a conspiracy. These folks, and I include the
moderators in this right along side the three amigos, work their collective asses off (the mods for free, out of the goodness of their hearts) to
better the site in every way they can think of...and what do they get? Baseless, fact less accusations of collusion with the bogeyman of the day.
Talk about ungrateful, jeeze.
I'm probably overstepping myself here, since compared to some, I'm a relative newcomer, only been here a couple of years after all; my exposure to
the three amigos and the various higher ups on ATS has been limited. They are, on a whole, a bit smarter than the majority of the members herein,
they could do a whole lot better than this if they were indeed so darned nefarious. Seriously. Bill, for example, does most of the site changes
himself, that makes him a pretty smart guy in my book. My read on the other two Amigos is exactly the same, a couple of pretty smart guys.
John Lear on the other hand is a condescending story teller who needs to go back to doing what he does well, flying really cool airplanes. If the
powers that be say he is welcome back anytime without the drama, I, for one, believe them. Lear says otherwise apparently, guess who I believe...
