Skeptics want proof. Speculation is fun and all but it requires proof. When we don't get that proof it only fuels our skepticism.
Not to say there hasn't been a few really good conspiracies that have surfaced. One in particular was the one where our government was basically
buying computer board off of Ebay, and those components allowed the Chinese government access to our systems with ease. That even made MSM News and it
was broached right here on ATS.
We want less of the "I am a reptilian and I eat cat brains" threads and more of the verifiable and real conspiracies where members actually go
beyond Google to research their stories.
We want real facts. We want verification. If we want spam we can go to 4chan. We come here for something more.
That's just the skeptic side of the issue. Nothing personal to you, it's just that skeptics shouldn't be shunned, we are the ones your trying to
convince. People who believe in these subjects are going to believe them no matter what. It's your job to try and convince us skeptics that this is
real and this isn't the stuff of basement dwelling, tin foil hat wearing, sociopaths.
