Last night, on the ATS main board, there was a thread in regards to a 'geocities' site which was flaming ATS, and each successive posting further
found fault with that site.
If that was it, then everything would be fine. Just like people are prone to become defensive when insulted, I am sure there are members here who
felt justified in posting crude remarks on the thread.
But it wasn't just on here.
I checked out that geocities site and found it very irrelavent... I don't recall any thread or posting described the way the site creator did. ATS,
as a whole, DOES go out of its way to provide useful information, with links or sources, to any thread... so the sites comments about aluminum hats
and such were, in its entire-ty, false.
Yet, some ATS members took that as face value, and decided to become exactly as the site's creator stated we were: idiots. Every guestbook entry is
filled with utter nonsense, by ATS personnel, that it not only shows what those signers are truely like, but it degrades ATS!
I tried to sign the guestbook, to make an open apology for ATS, because of those remarks... but the book was already full with childish responses.
Whoever did those, let it be known that I have taken insult because of your actions...
To those who may have been lucky enough to miss the whole ordeal, here is the geocities site in question:
If I can find a link to last night's thread, I'll post that as well.
I seriously hope some of the high moderators can take action.
