I honestly don't remember it ever being like it has been lately. I clicked on hot topics and it's all about the driest political issues with no sense of wonder like the good ole days.
It almost seems like the bread and butter topics of ATS's golden era which included:
UFOs, bigfoot, the lochness monster, ghosts, time travel, super string theory, the eleventh dimension, the multiverse, the mothman, dopplegangers, remote viewing, men in black, flight 19, roswell, betty and barney hill, the lavender lady, champ, bob lazar, secret space stations, mother ships, John Lears crazy stories about soul catchers (i miss his stories alot), ancient civilizations on mars, glass domes on the moon, the NWO, jim morrison's death, hollow earth theory, the city of atlantis, Lemuria, telekenesis, the jersey devil, camp hero, denver airport, and of course -- the reptillians -- have all but disappeared.
These were the topics that ATS was fouinded on and I couldn't wait to get home to log on and see what exciting new adventure or mystery that needed to be unraveled on this top flight conspiracy website.
Now it's been replaced with Obama this or healthcare that and the people reading off pages and pages of boring statistics from downloaded pdfs so they can fuel their rage about how wrong the left/right is for backing their man/woman in office.

Rise above it. Make ATS the place you want it to be. If you can't, don't let the door hit ya'.

Ahaha, there are definitely a few mods who have banned me in time passed that would disagree with my making of your list.
And there's no hate, I just don't agree with your religious views. I even expanded on something you said in a thread the other night, cause you were bang on the issue. Your a clever cat, just wish you would take more time to put your mind to work cause I know the results would be well worth sharing to this community. Additionally, if I recall correct your from BC and that always scores some points
But, as I scanned through these last few pages here, I notice that it has gone off track, and division has once against created squabbling. Now I just took the time to write a thread about this, but I see it demonstrated in this thread. And that's unfortunate. The longer we continue in this fashion, the slower we are to progress. Bottom line.

The irony of it all. When ATS was smaller and less well known it seems that the conversations were smarter and held honest opinions.
The larger and potentially more influential it has become, the less worthy it has become of that influence due to the influence of the more numerous detractors of dubious intention.
... but the battle goes on.

If more members were proactive in reporting TOC violations, we wouldn't need 10 mods per section.
If we police ourselves under the regime of decent, fair, co-operative discussion, mods could put their hats up and sit back for a change.
