Hey ATS moderators and designers
Why not do something about all of these HOAX posts. Especially the very disturbing type like the one posted by Rainfall that says "U.S. Troops
handcuff, execute 8 Afghan children".
You then take a look at the resource posted:
"A statement issued Thursday by the Afghan National Security Directorate said the government investigation showed no Afghan forces were involved and
"international forces from an unknown address came to the area and without facing any armed resistance, put 10 youth in two rooms and killed them.
"They conducted this operation on their own without informing any security or local authorities of Afghanistan," the statement said."
Then to defend her position Rainfall used "Spoken like a true 'mind controlled' victim... " Where do you prove either the killings or that I am
Moderators, this is directed at you. Why isnt there something like the 'stars' but red to show how many people believe the article is a hoax?
Good job ATS, lets keep up the good old "Baby killers!" b.s., maybe we can have a psychologically abusive post war era like the Vietnam vets had.
ATS is doing a good job of not clearing out which is hoax and which isnt. this one sided star system isnt cutting it. We need one that shows how
many people disapprove of the post.
Personally I am disgusted that you can make such claims without the entire post being moved into a hoax folder and continued there, with the label it
deserves... which is HOAX.
Until you can show evidence that Americans killed innocent children you cannot say they factually did it. You are just going to get people extremely
worked up... especially when people trying to point out its a hoax are just called brainwashed. Thats brainwashing in itself right there. Thats
psychological warfare if you want to get technical.
Stop the hoax posting, make up some rules, get a red circle that people can give to a post that shows how many people feel the post is
misleading/inappropriate/or a flat out hoax.
Or is ATS about "incorrect news that gets your attention is better than no news at all?" I am starting to feel like ATS is a bad outfit. That post
Rainfall put up, and what she said throughout it really got me worked up. I am a combat veteran, and none of us would have allowed an operation like
that to have happened, we would have killed whomever sent the order before doing it. Get a life rainfall, put some factual information into it. In
the mean time, lets put your post where it belongs, in the HOAX folder.
You cant tell someone to F off, but you can generalize a military outfit as babykillers without any proof. ATS i think your doing a wonderful job,
keep up the good work. Big pats on the back.
