We have conspiracy theory forums and they are a big part of this site. We have political forums, that don't necessicarily have to include a
conspiracy. We have collaborative writing, and debates. We have Current Events DISCUSSION forums -- which includes political conspiracies -- which
for me, reinforces that the political forums don't have to be conspiracies. We have a survival forum, which tends more toward tips and information
to [hopefully] augment prep and survival folks.
Do you see the pattern?
Science and Technology, Advance Aircraft, Space Exploration, Medical Issues, Psychology, not to mention the whole of BTS, all of which doesn't
necessitate conspiracy so much as it does exchange of information, discussion, growth.
It's all here, whatever those of us off-the-beaten-path want. You want more conspiracy threads? Make 'em. If they are insightful and
engaging, people will come and discuss.
I like it just fine the way it is. I have yet to have anyone try to force me to open a thread and look at it, including this one.
One of the wonderous things about ATS is its eclectic mixture of people and ideas, their creativity, their ingenuity. It's well moderated and yet
we have the freedom to be ourselves.
I don't disagree with your view -- I think it's yours to share. It sounds to me as if you feel that a significant portion of the threads are
inconsistent with the spirit of this website. If so, I disagree with that. Yes, I've been frustrated with an influx of off-putting threads from
time to time. Things change, though, and this site evolves and, disruptive people eventually weed themselves out.
I want to suggest something to you, and this isn't sarcasm, just a suggestion. Branch out a bit more here on ATS/BTS. I've seen many of your
previous threads, and they don't all seem conspiracy-centric. Part of all this is the examination of the human condition, our beliefs, our history
and that of the universe itself. All points eventually lead to a conspiracy of sorts, and ALL of this, ALL of it is part of us, the biggest
conspiracy of all.
Good thread. I look forward to your next offerings.
