I'm sorry, I haven't read this whole thread, I imagine this thread is starting to turn into the reason why we're in the place we are now. But I
will just express my opinion as i'm sure someone else is bound to have it but may not have the time to express their feelings correctly about the
From the beginning time I've visited this site, it's been an extreme creditable source of information, people who made threads used to actually DO
research and CHECK their sources before they make a thread. Ill give you the Aliens & UFO section for example. It used to be fun to see a new thread
on the board, cause you knew something important was inside of it.
Now sadly, its been over run by a bunch of kids with Google Earth and the ability to zoom in on something x400 and post saying its an alien base or
something on the moon. It seems everybody is always in fights with each other over creditability.
You could have the most startling information, checked your sources, KNOW that everything you are saying is correct yet someone is bound to try to
make a post and hijack your thread into the shear thought of it being phony.
For this reason, this site has gone down the tubes. There are genuine people here with real messages that they need to deliver, yet they get bombarded
by fake accusations. I wont go too far into it, but I am one of those people with an extremely important message to the world. To put it bluntly, yes
I am in "contact" with aliens, I have been roughly for the past 6-7 years.
Now just the site of seeing those words raises all sorts of questions, and rightfully so, questions about the authenticity of the individual. The
problem is, the site is just such a disarray now that when people try to make a post sharing their message (myself included) the first 5-10 posts are
always usually people for lack of better words, saying your bull#.
It grows extremely frustrating on the person, the few of us are here to spread a message, an important one at that. Its not an easy task to do so, so
when you spend hours typing a thread and picking your words carefully only for the thread to die only because a few select people try to discredit the
thread SO MUCH that they eventually trick everybody else into thinking the same thing.
Why should we sit here and put time into spreading knowledge when half of the people on here don't think its true? And don't deserve to hear it?
Most of those people are missing the entire point of this website. Most of them only seem to come onto this site to try to discredit every and
possible post they can.
I cant speak for every other forum, but like I said, all it takes now is a child with Photoshop to create a ridiculous 400+ post thread all on a count
of a single picture magnified x1000 times. Its literally become to that point, download Google Earth and zoom in on ANY section of the moon. Copy that
imagine, open it in Photoshop, zoom in an abnormal amount of times and say its an alien, or a UFO base, or something along those matters and most of
the people here will believe you.
Sadly, most of the ATS veterans have left the site for most of these purposes, ATS has become sort of the butt-end joke of all the conspiracy
I myself have seen this on many occasions, other sites will have individuals post such obscure and meaningless pictures and try to claim them as
something incredibly important, most responses are "go back to ATS with all the other dumb people like you". I myself don't feel the same way, but
I certainly understand other people's frustration and why they would say something like that.
So, with all that being said. The ONLY way for the site to go back to the way it used to be is obviously MUCH tighter security on the sub-forums. We
need MORE mods who aren't NEW to the site, we need actual veteran MODS. Of course theres much more into rebuilding the sites creditability but thats
where "they" need to start.
Sorry for the wall of text, just expressing an opinion.
