I like the suggestion box idea, although it might also be possible just to use the already-present suggestions/complaints features and have mods channel the input to the DISC forum.

I also assume that DISC members would be willing to be contacted with suggestions and would bring them to the table. Maybe even including something to that effect in their signature area and/or profile here and at MATS so people can get in touch with them easily.

 


edit: Darcon, would you add me to that list please? And I think there were one or two others who expressed interest after me also …

After spending a great deal of time reading through this thread I have come to the ultimate conclusion that ATS is an addictive drug which should be not only regulated but completely censored and access blocked by all internet providers.


Seriously, good thread.


Power to the people!!

How long have we been talking about this?

Look, it is really simple. It is one thing to discuss related topics, it is a whole other thing to all but condone drug abuse. Hell, I don't even do drugs and I have posted a thread or two in BTS about Dimethyltryptamine ('___').

However, I related it to something pertinent. Here, let me see if I can find the thread and post a link to it: The real sin of taking the mark

Now, if you read in that thread, I made reference to '___' several times. There was not a single warning or "calling out" anywhere in that thread. Why? Simple. It was because it was pertinent to the point I was trying to make.

All of this hubaloo is ridiculous. Skeptic Overlord has repeatedly warned that if need be, he'd remove any and all discussion of drugs. Many of you refused to heed his warnings. Now, it's time to pay the proverbial piper. Deal with it, or find somewhere else to post. It's really that simple.

You folks have you work cut out for you in finding a way to re-introduce drug-related topics to ATS.





(amazing)

Just my $0.02:

I don't feel that members of any "committee" need necessarily to have contributed significantly to drug related threads in the past.

Those with a more general "best interest of ATS" attitude might be just as valuable.

Well we should really start thinking about taking off the people who haven't been here regularly, although it has only been twenty four hours.

So what should we do?

Do the people on that list just go ahead and vote for six others other than themselves based on historical knowledge and participation on this thread?

Edit: My suggestion is that if any such voting were to take place it should be done via U2U to BH.

I realize it's late into the thread and I haven't participated since the first few pages, but I'd like to offer my name into consideration for participation in the management of this new forum. Some of you may not know me, but many of you do.

I think I could help.

Well i think we should cut some people off the list, specifically the ones who have not contributed to this discussion.

I second that motion. You would make a valuable contribution to any discussion. ..... (as long as we agree

You may be right SO, but I believe that we owe it to ourselves as a community to try our best and find possible resolutions to this, whilst at the same time being as inclusive as possible.

Pretty much. I mean a little time should be allotted for voting but, for the most part those that have participated in this thread and are nominees should be considered.

I know who I would vote for based on this thread, I think that the people I vote for have a clear understanding of the issue. I think they know the problems associated with this issue as far as the owners of this site are concerned.

Thanks,


I've always done my best to remain level headed and neutral here at ATS. Although it is frustrating when so many others are just plain wrong.

I think the no drug discussion policy is a sound one for ATS.

Primarily for one very important reason:

I have just unearthed this amazing conspiracy I would like to share the details of and am high/stoned/drunk on__________ kind of just says, please don’t listen to a word I say.

I can’t imagine how drugs become necessary to a conspiracy site, even those conspiracies where drugs might play a part in financing or funding its easy enough to simply say the ‘black market proceeds’ of illegal activities.

For those topics dealing with mind control or different states of conscious “Artificial Stimuli” seems generic enough and specific enough to get the point of a conspiracy across.

Specifics in some regards are only going to encourage some people to specifically try.

I think ATS can still accomplish its mission without unwittingly becoming a conduit for the admissions of behavior that will only tend to dilute the message in some people’s eyes and potentially lead to planting potentially dangerous seeds in other people’s minds.

I am a strong advocate of free speech and no censorship but I do view ATS’s position on this to be sound and common sense.
