Think about it. If you have pre-existing paranoia or schizophrenia your going to be further paranoid and schizophrenia by reading about some
jack-off's prediction as to what might happen in 2012.
If you really agree with ABC then you're more than welcome to cancel your ATS account.
Always a one-liner.
Always attacked once I step away from the computer.
Let me explain something to you buddy. If you read my entire post then you would understand that I did not claim to be a paranoid schizophrenic. I
claimed anyone who is should stay far away from this website. Why? Because all forums are filled with BS and ATS is especially filled with BS. Anyone
who says otherwise would believe you if you told them there's a little man living inside their head. Your response clearly shows your being defensive
of the site, and obviously felt like you were attacked for being a part of such a community. ATS needs not your petty defense, they have
I will revert back to my original point which was so foolishly ignored by your ignorant rhetorical response...
A mental illness defines an extremely wide variety of issues that one can be experiencing. The most prevalent for this arguement is paranoia. Whether
factual or fiction many stories on here incite paranoia. Therefor, conspiracy theory websites contribute to mental issues.
The arguement to whether or not the mental illness is pre-existing is similar to punching a brick wall. Nobody wins. The point is that they do exist.
Anyone that says mental illness' are fiction should be evaluated themselves.
Another example is obviously as I mentioned before Schizophrenia. Let's define this mental illness for the sake of the arguement.
Schizophrenia (pronounced /ˌskɪtsəˈfrɛniə/ or /ˌskɪtsəˈfriːniə/), from the Greek roots schizein (σχίζειν, "to split") and
phrēn, phren- (φρήν, φρεν-, "mind") is a severe and disabling brain disorder characterized by abnormalities in the perception or
expression of reality. It most commonly manifests as auditory hallucinations, paranoid or bizarre delusions, or disorganized speech and thinking with
significant social or occupational dysfunction. Onset of symptoms typically occurs in young adulthood, with approximately 0.4–0.6% of the
population affected. Diagnosis is based on the patient's self-reported experiences and observed behavior. No laboratory test for schizophrenia
It's right there in plain text. Abnormalities in the perception or expression of reality. I would most definitely argue that that is an attribute to
believing some of the crazy things that get thrown out here. "It most commonly manifests as auditory hallucinations, paranoid, or bizarre
delusions", as though reading about ghosts, cover-ups, 9/11 conspiracy, people living in inner earth, Nibiru would not further promote such mental
I would sincerely advise the opposing force to ABC's conclusion to not only fact-check back with ABC regarding their fully capable research team, but
to also do their own research regarding the situation of individuals with mental illness'. The case seems plain as day to me that ABC hit one right
on the nose, and unfortunately people like you sos37
took it personally.
