You are lying sir. As seen by this screen-shot, you are purposefully presenting false information in an effort to support your shoddy case.

1) Place your mouse pointer over "Political Animal" towards the top of the page (Home » Politics » Political Animal)
2) Single click on the left button on your mouse.
3) Look towards the top of the page where it says "Home » Blogs » Politics » Political Animal"

Glad to see how fast you can call people false names. Goes to prove.

That's for sure!!

Personally I think the mods and staff go out of their way to allow conflicting views to be heard. Sort of like this one.

and I have received my share of the red flag reprimands.

So ...... no coincidence that your last thread was flagged as a potential hoax then !!! I may be wrong but it does sound like your a little sore because of that judgement by the mods.......

personally i've been on here for quite a few years (only joined to post last year) and from what i've seen the mods do a damn good job of maintaining order and flagging threads as hoax etc..... If it wasnt for the mods doing their sterling work then this place really wouldnt be worth visiting every day.

just my 2 cents

Given that theres over 50 of us, and we're from all over the world, and a large chunk of us cannot even vote in the US Elections - and those who are eligible come from all different political persuasions - I'd just like to take this opportunity to tell you that your assumption here is a complete and utter load of rubbish.


Perhaps you should look at this story:
www.abc.net.au...

No disrespect intended, but dont a lot of bs threads here not have a source at all?

Just because someone posts his take of an article on the internet, does not make him a hoaxer. Maybe the person that wrote the article, but not the member.

We're conspiracy theorists. There is plenty of crap out there that makes it way to ATS. Are the people that post the threads on it hoaxers? No. They are just choosing to believe what they want to believe. Just like the rest of us.

I saw his thread. Thats not a hoax. David Bieniek's crap was a hoax. Come on.

I didn't see one mention of the mods political opinions in that story. Was this supposed to link to ATS Moderators want Barack Obama to be president?

If you cannot connect the dots to the statement I quoted and that article, then there is no sense in trying to explain it to you. Have a nice day.

And if you post something as your opinion, it is always and forever allowed...Or a personal experience, dream, thought etc

You get the idea...

It is when you post something that you are claiming has happened as fact and then posting source material to support it; then when it is found out to be false with supportive facts as to the reason it was reported.... Well what is it except a hoax?

An opinion can't be referenced or investigated, an allegation of factual occurrence always can.

I don't personally assume a thread that has been found out to be a hoax is the fault of the thread author. In fact many times I have seen something discovered as a hoax and the OP agreeing with the findings.

I have personally posted something that I thought was fact and had the members "set me straight" on more than one occasion. It was simply a situation in which I was wrong. Happens...
