Alot of what i have shared i would never ever share face to face with my family for instance bar my wife.
To attack people just because they are new and you don't like them or their ideas.. well... and if their threads are so offensive let the Mods deal with it. Thats what they are there for.
ATS hasn't sold out at all, its just growing / moving in its own sweet direction.
If you don't like some one, thats what the ignore buttons for im my opinion.
# edit # Some of the more 'established' people here on ATS can be arrogant to the extreme at times too - but thats life.

Its more of a snowball effect now. Someone says something completely unproven and other people just absorb it as possible "facts" and incorporate them into their own theories.
