I can understand how you feel, things were quite a bit different when I first visited ATS and eventually joined up.
For me, everything was pretty good until the US election last year, that is when a lot of trolling , negativity and other things started to appear.
I think the best solution would be to ban everyone who registered after 2007
Thinking about it a little more I realized that it was happening even before then, I remember some epic flame wars at the time of the 2006
There is not really much that can be done, the site has grown so much and that has changed the character of it for good I am afraid. The mods and
owners do a good job and have tried to curtail these kind of things several times before, but things only last for a few days.
I was thinking of when I first visited and how much I loved reading about John Titor, secret aircraft and things in these articles they had, I
wondered whatever happened to them?
This lead me to finally check out the TinWiki section and I am glad I did, there is some juicy stuff there to keep me occupied for a while and away
from the trolls.
So thank you for prompting me to finally look at that. I would suggest that everyone has a look there when things are getting them down and uses the
ignore button for people they do not like.
The other thing I do is to bypass the main page and jump straight into forums like Paranormal Studies, Secret Societies, Aircraft Projects, Ancient
and Lost Civilizations etc... that interest me. The links are down on the right hand side of the main page.
Anyway, that probably enough of my rambling for now, I am off to read about some weird and wonderful stuff.
