Thank you all for the attention. My point is this.
I love ATS. I think I've been a good proponant for the continuity of classiness that ATS inspires in most. I joined ATS when I found it was the
leading discussionary site that deals in alternative topics. UFOs, Underground Bases, Ghosts and Paranormal, Secret Societies and Predictions.
At my time of joining (December 2005), I had been lurking for 2 or 3 years. Soaking it up and doing my best to shake the David Icke influence that I
knew was pretty funky.
At that time, there were three options.
1) ATS. The conspiracy theories and evidence to prove such.
2) BTS. The lighter side of discussion. Fun, games and comeraderie.
3) PTS. For those who were interested in the many nuances of our (and other) political sneakiness.
It was nice to know that I could go over to PTS (AP) and read some political muckity-muck if I so chose to.
(I often chose NOT to because I am completely sick of our concrete two-party system that is rife with beaurocracy, lobbying and dishonesty. To this
day, I DON'T feel represented as a citizen.)
Now, there is really no escape. Oh, you can instruct me to block out certain forums and ignore the crappulence, but, it doesn't deflect from the
point that AboveTopSecret.com is a conspiracy site and mainstream politics does NOT fit.
I've been watching Springer and SkepticO pull what's left of their hair out trying to keep the politics here at ATS from going crazy. The latest
U2U from Admin pointing to the new thread about RNC "infiltrations" is another in a long list of things that distract the ATS reader from what
he/she is really interested in.
I LOVE ATS! I miss AP.
