You're not the only one, no.
My 2 cents:
While people can post what they want here, and we should always be respectful and civil, I too feel like there are certain topics that may not
necessarily belong here, or should have their own subject on the board entirely so that they don't take up space on threads where they don't really
belong, detracting from the original topic.
Remember, the name of this site is ABOVE TOP SECRET, not metaphysical theories, etc. When I think ATS, the last subjects that come to mind are
enlightenment, ascension, chakras, and the like. It's NOT why I come here. I was a long-time lurker here and fianally made a profile, then the
membership exploded last year and things haven't been the same ever since. There just seems to be more and more of the stuff I DON'T want to see or
read about and more and more of these posters spreading it all over threads it doesn't belong on, getting off-topic and reaching for connections that
All in all, I still haven't given up on ATS, but I DO think they need to open a few more subjects on the board that pertain to the subjects we're
discussing - and put them there - so the rest of us that come here for everything else can read and post without having to sort through it ourselves.
That's why my activity here has dropped. I'm getting sick of these metaphysical, enlightenment, ascension, political ideology, general upsurge of
bad grammar AND hoaxes!
There's a new hoax every day here it seems, that garners so much interest, gets everyone stirred up and then turns out that it's a hoax, as always,
taking credibility away from this site. Until there are more places for those things here to keep them out of the subjects they don't belong on, this
site is on an ever-downward spiral of credibility and enjoyment for those of us that come here for a reason other than to stand on a soapbox.
I have several suggestions for ATS:
1. Make subjects on the board for:
a. Metaphysics, spiritual, etc.
b. Political issues, consparacies, etc.
c. Proven hoaxes. (Every time a thread or post is proven a hoax or has been proclaimed by general belief that it is a hoax, it lands itself in this
subject line on the board. That way, we don't even have to click on a post once to see what the mods have to say about it, we can just review them at
our will and they no longer take up space elsewhere.)
It's named ABOVE TOP SECRET, let's keep the subject matter such.
