Exactly what is behind ATS I am not quite sure, but it's not all it's cracked up to be. Here are some inconsistancies, just to give people a
1) The content is not 100% user generated when you have things like "Robbie Williams at the Gilliland ranch!", made by the site staff. I mean,
c'mon. Adding some celebrity turns this site into The Sun.
2) On the front page is massive spread on Obama vrs McCain, supporting a left-right paradigm which many, many users have demonstrated false over the
years and creating the idea that the elections will be relevant when any NWO theorist knows they will be not.
3) On a recent Chemtrail thread started by OzWeatherman there was a massive destruction of his debunk attempt, which all but proved Chemtrails to be
real, yet the moderators chose to stay on the fence when it was obvious that people were spreading disinformation in the face of actual facts. Where
is the deny ignorance?
I see ATS as a sort of flypaper for the intelligent non aligned people, who come here, debate, and indeed do learn things when the truth is obvious as
it is these days, but I have a feeling the site is run to be, how shall I put this, to be shallow. To not have any real relevance. Because if some of
the things discussed, and in the case of chemtrails and the political stuff, proved here, were to reach global consciousness, the world would change.
I am not so sure anymore the people running this site, whoever they may really be, want this.
However there is another, simpler explanation: this is just an independent site run by people that do the best they can, and who are really only
interested in spreading information neutrally, with no real thought to consequence. ATS could simply exist as is, no agenda, no real goals
other than to perpetuate itself. This is easily as good an explanation as the more conspiratorial one I put up in the previous phrase.
Either way, I don't expect much change because of ATS directly... but the social networks born here but supported by intepersonal relationships hold
Hope I haven't offended people here, honesty makes me call it as I see it.
