It's about time
I get so tired of the bickering, name calling and personal attacks I have been here less often.
I have made simple comments and have been attacked and almost given a death wish.
I might stick around if all comply there are a lot of good reasons to.
Seconded, tripled, and approved.
I posted a comment on function of the chakras, and went to read a reply: I had been called TWELVE INSULTING NAMES in one small paragraph posting: then
another (his friend), began attacking me also. I wasn't aware of the "report" post: but subsequently I used it (after losing 1000 points). Finally,
the moderater who chose sides with the insulters, removed two posts. Another mod came on, and cleaned up further posts via editing. I said I wouldn't
leave until they stopped the abuse: the fairer mod stopped it, and I never went back.
I checked the rules, and it seems that the mods were permitted to favor those they chose to, and 'shy away' from correct procedure (duty) when they
felt like it. Unfair, just as posted in the above quoted comment: Unnecessary treatment of members, because they post a comment, which was harmless to
Politics I understand, but this MUST go for the entire ATS site (hopefully).
Do your work, mods: keep it clean, and all will soon comply, when they see fairness exerted in ALL directions and with ALL members.
I, too, had planned to leave this Abuse-Rampant site, but as the poster above me said, if some civilized rules began to APPLY (not just put into the
'rules' section, and meted out willy-nilly) to ALL fairly, then I, and other's who perceive the unfairness, may stay. And yes, while a couple
won't be missed, you have no idea how many people dislike such treamnet when they see it, celebrity or not, friend or not. They can get that
everyday, anywhere in everyday life.
Here, on ATS, some of us might like to share with other's of similar views, ask questions of others, or perhaps find information that's readily
available on ATS threads, without the sheer unfairness of being insulted, attacked, abused, or just plain trolled, for the mere reason of it's being
Good work: now let's see it enforced: I will adjust my rhetoric accordingly, as I see other's won't be permitted by some mods to break these
decency rules, and other's not. We shouldn't have to defend ourselves because we don't like jesu or bush or Obama. Join the war(s) if that's what
thrills you: here, there's much more to partake of.
