I like ATS a lot, I always have.
Sure there have been the way out there posts now and then, but when you get a board that has Aliens, Politics, Whichcraft & Religion (plus more) you
are bound to get some really wierd stuff.
That said however I feel that lately we are seeing posts and members that go above and beyond the normally accepted strangness.
I see daily entries of total and utter nonsense.
I see copycat posts within hours of an original post EG I attacked an alien to be followed later by An alien attacked me by another member.
I feel we need a way to qualify members standing and in particular with a certain topic. For example Internos' comments on moon stuff is very well
respected as he/she goes through the process of working out what it is they are presenting and then can back it up.
I do not know how to resolve the issue other than maybe make people select or earn their specialty as voted by their peers, and also have a star
system that allows members to earn a negative point. That way gauranteeing less crap on the board or at least when you see a post saying: I AM A GREY
and the member has -12000 credibility points you may or may not even care to look.
Of course your Foes cannot vote against you, and in turn your friends votes are only 50% of a non-friend vote.
Let me know what you think.
