As a note, I wrote that warning in the OP just as that, and not to make a point. I did not want my thread to result in disciplinary action against
any members for being inquisitive.
That aside, yes, I suppose I have been rather vocal lately regarding my views of the direction of this site. From what I see, good posters are
dropping like flies. And, with my conspiratorial mind, it seems like the ATS staff are 'disappearing' them. Although they often say it's with
good reason, I think that ATS is getting a bit big for the 'trust us' phase, however, this is a private site, and it is their prerogative, and there
is by no means a need for transparency.
I suppose I'm just concerned more about the members than about the administration.
I've read plenty of posts saying 'If you don't like it you can get out' or something to that effect from the membership. I'm of a different mind
regarding these kinds of things. I say, 'If you don't like it, make your points known, ask the membership if they agree, change it if possible.'
Saying 'get out' means that I've given up on making this site (and this world in a larger scheme) a better place.
