Well you should've known better then, as a longtime member.

I'm just getting sick of these childish posts lately, but I see from your other posts you're not always like that, so don't take it personally.

But you did take it pretty far.

Just don't do that anymore man, I find it interesting to converse with the OP.

Like others pointed out, if the thread is too much for ya, stay clear of it.

Dude, Culhail you need to chill out before you have a stroke. While I do not agree with some of the posters way of dealing with the post I feel like you are doing the same to them that they are doing to the OP. It is obvious from the links provided that the guy is probably a troll, plus he admitted to taking "something" to channel the trees. This is actually against forum policy being he admitted drug use. I am sure he is a big boy, or girl, and can defend himself.

So how bout everybody be friends and lets let the mods do the forum policing?

OK, so I will await the moderators to delete those posts or punish me at will. I do not take kindly to a jumped-up member attempting to lord it over others with his/her knowledge of the rules.




2) Behavior: You will not behave in an abusive, hateful and/or racist manner, and will not harass, threaten, nor attack anyone.


So quoting Monty Python and The Lord of the Rings constitutes 'abusive, hateful, racist, threats and harrassment does it? Perhaps somebody should notify the proper British authorities and have Monty Python upgraded to XXX classification then. Oh and Peter Jackson too...

Mate, calm the heck down. I posted a few movie quotes, was asked to stop SO I DID. If I wanted to act like an arse I would have ignored the request to stop.

So don't give me that crap about "He started it." It was a disjointed, almost rambling opening post, but, was instantly derailed by YOUR insulting, degrading post.


Unfortunately, the same "disjointed, almost rambling opening post" appeared to open several threads at the same time.



ATS is exactly the place people like TheLion can come to to get their ideas and suppositions out and with degrading posts like yours they are shunned here as well.


And for the very same reason, ATS is exactly the place that some trolls target with conspiracy/paranormal bait.

Personally, I've no issue with the ideas behind the post, I've stated as much a couple of times in the thread itself. My real problem with some of the posts was where they went against the guidelines that appear every time anyone posts on ATS:



Please avoid using "TXT Messaging Shorthand" for words when posting on AboveTopSecret.com and AbovePolitics.com, such as "4" for the word "for" or "u" for the word you.

He is not doing the same, he's trying to keep these forums clean of these BS comments, as any good member should do, mod or not.

Plus, he is right about the rules.

Can't comment with respect and without ridicule, then don't.

Not to mention the off topic quoting of LOTR and Life of Brian.

hey.. I dont know what all the bickering is about... I was building a storage shed ..the other day.. and one of the boards hit me across the back of the head.. so this guy might have something about the trees being able to talk.. that board sure spoke to me.. and I had a few words for it too..

I'll apologize for getting all up in everyones faces, but, I honestly think that the crap I see in this thread alone is happening all over the boards and it has to stop for ATS to carry forward. The mocking, self-serving posts do nothing to get to the subject topic's core and find out what the "Odd" poster is really trying to get across.
I don't freak out about it often at all and usually just shake my head and move on, silently doing in my head what I've done in this thread. But, no more. I WAS a Moderator at one time and I gave it up for my sanity. I see these kinds of posts as actions to supress what ATS is for, and, I will NEVER give up on getting members to post with clarity, intent and intellegence.
I LOVE Monty Python. They absolutely ROCK!, But, it's not advancing the topic to post quotes over and over again. What that does is exactly the OPPOSITE. It retards the thread.

My stance is solid.
You can get all indignant by some "Random" poster insisting you post with class, or you can get the message. The message is positive.

Actually I consider myself to be a very good member, thank you. And I got his point. Please re-read my post and be sure you understood mine.
I was not disrespectful in anyway. All I am saying is that the way you guys are handling this is no better than the guys you are arguing with. You are wasting just as much space in the thread. Contact a mod and complain. No need to express your anger in the forum. We all are tired of the nonsense.

I guess that is my queue to apologise.

I hereby apologise for derailing the thread by going off-topic and quoting Monty Python. It was wrong of me and I could have found a better, more intelligent way of dealing with the issue.

Amazing how you can excel at both ends of the spectrum.

So, is the OP still around?

Right I'll admit I may have taken it a bit too far too, my initial contact with the OP was meant to have been light hearted but he responded by telling my to go whack off or whatever.

ATS is about denying ignorance right? What's to be gained by blindly acknowledging posts like the OP's? No source, no punctuation and delivered in an all-knowing, holier than thou viewpoint. What did he expect? Its stuff such as this that undermines the credibility of the site.
OP's should be able to defend whatever they have posted in order to make their experience / theory credible. It must be expected that it will come under scrutiny.

Appologies to all who may have been offended.

Friend, honestly, even when people walk all over you, call you names, make you angry, you should still show composure. That's what makes you better, so I suggest you start thinking over what you could have done here to have avoided being called a troll.

Here's a couple of things right off the top of my head:

A.) Learn to spell. No one will take you seriously if you spell like a twelve year old, short hand like "ur" etc, just makes you look like some bored kid.

B.) Learn to format your text so it's readable. puttingeverything in a small square like this many many many times over again really doesnt help anyone neither does leaving punctuation and capital letters out of the equation.

C.) Keep your head high. Act like a gentleman no matter what. Prove to everyone you're sincere, and quit with lame and childish comebacks like the "spanking off" deal.

D.) Don't mention anything like "I took something that inhances my senses" etc. Makes you either look like 1.) A toking hippy or 2.) a regular junkie. Doesn't help your cause.

If what you're saying is true, then you wouldn't have to defend it, because you would know it, and you'd continue to share it no matter what, right?

Just some helpful hints, and my general thoughts. Take them as you will.




Peace,
FK
