It's because I'm sick to death of these threads. I still don't understand how they get so much attention.
Is it really a conspiracy? I don't think so.
Every week for the last two months or so there have been one, sometimes two of these threads. It's getting beyond a joke. So, yes, I do feel the need
to spend a couple of minutes of my time to point this out.
It's funny that your time frame for this increase in 'aggressive' or 'negative' posts (personally I don't see it) fits in with this recent trend
of pointless threads.
"ATS has gone to the dogs!!!!"
"Everyone is being nasty!!"
"What has happened to ATS????"
And now, "What is wrong with the ATS membership right now ? !!"
Personally, I don't mind the threads about being an alien or having a fist fight with an alien or being a reptilian hybrid from Venus, they can be
entertaining. At least they are, most of the time, placed in the correct area, either My Story or Skunk Works, so you should know what to expect when
you click the title.
However threads like this just take precious time away from those threads that are actually full of interesting facts and opinions. Not to mention the
negativity that is shoveled out in them.
Blaming individuals and groups like teenagers for instance is ridiculous. You should be thankful that they are here at all instead of being glued to
their PS3's and having no interest in the important topics ATS has to offer.
The fact that you were expecting a 'predictable' response like this should have told you something about the thread itself.
Stop the trend. It serves no purpose. Go check out the important
threads ATS has to offer.
Viva la ATS!
