I've only been here 3 months. I dont have a 5 year reference to draw from like the o.p. I like the site. I like that there's a balance of "out
there" and "grounded in fact".
I've met some very nice and smart people here, willing to share some good information. There's going to obviously be some differences in interests
and personalities as well as "experience" not only in life but on this site interacting with others.
I got pissed off 1 time, and lost my cherry lost my cool, because I noticed within a political thread there was one or two posters continuing to go
off topic asking where the alien stuff was and how ATS wasnt any good. So I posted a rant. That was a good lesson to myself in NOT what to do, but it
had a benefit, it helped polish my actions a bit.
This is internationally driven and amazingly the similarities of a worlds people will reveal itself here, if you allow yourself to see it.
I like the place, it has everything, brains, moles, trolls, whinners, braggers, hippies, grunts, XO's, aliens, clones, etc etc.
It's a big ship, you've been here since 2004 OP, you've got splinters, you've earned them. Maybe just shaking your head and knowing better would
bring you some peace.
