The exact same whining has been going on in fits & spurts for years
on ATS. Always the same. Mods are out of control. Mods are
censoring information. Mods are Nazis. Mods mods mods mods mods.
Blah blah freakin' blah.
Take ten seconds and really think about what this place would look like today if it were the free for all so many people want. You'd go somewhere
else to post, that's for sure, because ATS would be a CharlieFoxtrot on election day.
There are over 500 members logged in. At least half of those 500 (likely more) are very
passionate about their chosen candidate, and as the
night wears on the passion is going to get even more heated. It'll be ugly. People are gonna say things they shouldn't. You might agree with some
of the things said, but what about the vitriolic posts that will surely be directed at the candidate you don't
want to win?
If there wasn't some corralling of the sheer influx of information, a new thread posted would be rolled off the Most Recent page in but a couple
minutes due to all the other
new threads being posted at a furious, keyboard-pounding, passion-induced rate. How would there be any discussion
then? How would ATS be any different than a politically driven /b/?
It wouldn't. Trust me, it wouldn't. You wouldn't want to be here if the chaos wasn't controlled in some fashion. It'd be a bunch of angry
people drunk on rage bashing at their keyboards until the Y key goes flying across the room and puts out the cat's eye.
Please think of the cats.
