Are we in a drought for intelligent discussions on ATS?
How many more threads do we have to endure on how "Bad ATS is". Is there nothing else to discuss? What is the psychology or motive behind the flurry
of these threads lately?
I understand the irony of my posting this thread, but I really can't even bear to read the titles anymore. If you have an issue with ATS as a member
here, list it in the ATS issues thread.
The level of inane threads about the level of inane threads is a thread or 2 short of being declared a PANDEMIC.
Is this a conspiracy by:
A) competitor boards trying to bad mouth the number one conspiracy site?
B) destabalizing popluar opinion on ATS as paid disinfo agent
C) the threads are simply a result of "I have nothing left to say" or
"i lost my last debate so Im going to lash out"
May I suggest the following: If you dont like it here, find another party?
Or are you paid to stay here?
Reading half the posts in those anti ATS threads leaves one to beg the question: Is it paid stupidity, or simply stupid stupidty?
I have been frustrated since day one with posts, however I don't mistake me disagreeing with someones opinion for labelling them cancerous posters
in order to make myself feel better.
What is the ATS board for?
User driven content. Yes alot of it is drivel, and it gets worse at holiday time, but with the size of this community, it's bound to happen. There is
great content to come out of here, I've listed bottom of this post just a few of the threads that make think this place indeed is not cancerous or
dying. Any other ATSers who want to contribute threads that mean alot to them and show quality, please do.
The CIA do not own ATS as far as I know, nor are the 3 Amigos Bildebergers. But you know what, if you want to think that...go ahead, just argue it
with sensabile supported research and not petulant brat like acting out.
The Mods are not sensors, they are members like you, who give their time like you to make this site what it is. I personally don't want to be sworn
at, attacked, nor do Iwant to read off topic rude posts.... In fact the T's and C's are the reason I am here.. It is a safe environment to post
about alternative discussions and conspracies, and I'm glad for it.
Recently it was my ATS anniversary, and whilst I have been frustrated here and there since joining, in general its a great place to be, I've made
great friends, not to mention learned a heck more than I knew before, and I'm still learning.
I am not sorry if you disagree with me, that's the beauty of ATS, you are permitted to, and I won't call your contributions cancerous to the whole
of the ATS community....well stupid maybe, but not too your face and not too often lol!
Please , by Zorgons beard! tell me the conspiracy behind these threads lately ? This board is more than just Conspiracy Board, it's alterntive
topics, scientific, religious etc and social.
For the love of the god/goddess/plaedians/Allah/ Budha and whoever else you may refer to for spiritual guidance, no more ATS is going to hell
Carl Sagan to assist with your contributions to a conspiracy/alternative discussions board.
Wherever possible there must be independent confirmation of the facts.
Encourage substantive debate on the evidence by knowledgeable proponents of all points of view.
Arguments from authority carry little weight (in science there are no "authorities").
Spin more than one hypothesis - don't simply run with the first idea that caught your fancy.
Try not to get overly attached to a hypothesis just because it's yours.
Quantify, wherever possible.
If there is a chain of argument every link in the chain must work.
Occam's razor - if there are two hypotheses that explain the data equally well choose the simpler.
Ask whether the hypothesis can, at least in principle, be falsified (shown to be false by some unambiguous test). In other words, it is testable? Can
others duplicate the experiment and get the same result?
Some great threads, and guess what I don't agree with all the premises on there.

Spectacular phenomena in the Sky thread
