I have had to think long and hard about responding to your comment. 48 hours ago I think I would have agreed with you without even thinking about it.
Now I will say that I agree with you in part as some of what you say is true and disagree with you at the same time,.
To explain. wow where to start? True, some threads do get moved into these threads that you describe and this has happened to me here and I moaned
like holy hell about it. I had a few things pointed out to be which again I agreed with in part so I decided to try and read between the lines.
Through research I can also see that this has happened to you on a number of occasions and you were -understandably- not too happy about it. I think
that at this point you need to consider why this has happened;
Firstly, as the population of ATS grows, the number of mods needs to grow to. I dont know if this is happening but the site is definately becoming
unwieldy and (multi-threading)this provides a way of dealing with what must appear -to them- to be a full frontal assault. I think this can also be
seen by the love in thread about how they did against the 'attack' of the 14th.
Secondly, there are generally very good reasons for threads being sensored. If you read the complaints thread you should begin to see my point. Though
I do not agree with some of the more 'please let me stick my tongue up your bumhole' members this board is CERTAINLY heading in the right direction,
it just took me a while to work out.
If you wush to continue using ATS, which I do, I think you have to get used to the above phenomenon.
apart from that, thanks. back to the thrust of the topic,
