Hi guys and girls,
I haven't been a member for long but I've noticed that alot of what ATS is about is seeking Points more than seeking the
Introducing a points system on a site such as this I feel is discriminatory and sort of childish and places some people in a competitory frame of mind
resulting in pointless and repetative threads.
Also creating a Really Above Secret forum and refusing entrance to the truth seeking public unless u have a sufficient amount of points or bought
your way in is just plain mean spirited profiteering.(they cant say they need that money to stay afloat coz they could get by just fine without it.
e.g. they have ad sponsors and they could sell mechanise.
Their staff works for free as they should working for a truth dispenser website).
It just makes me think or a bunch or kids in a treehouse all telling gossip to each other and the new kid rocks up and the conversation stops. He asks
how their all going and asks Whats everyone talking about today and they all say"Not alot. We'd tell ya but u just havent known us long enough, but
I tell ya wot. You give us $20 bucks and we'll fill u in."
I just thought that in reality if u searched long enough for the truth, it would come to you freely and without discrimination.
Does any other member feel to same in this regard or wot?
Please Mods don't take this too much to heart as I don't mean to offend but I would like a believable explanation without getting verbally
