Hey - great thread.
I didn't really start posting on ATS until a long time after my join date.

Life is great. Downers are not.
It is easy to talk about negative stories in a positive light, without bringing an aura of depression.
Some advice for you. When you see negative posts, just label the poster as a crazy idiot and ignore them.

in bringing everyone down in times of UNCERTAINTY.

There are people who "get off" on the idea of Armageddon, economic depression, and many horrible things. They need to be slapped in the face.
