I joined ATS in 07 (the time of John Lear), right before it blew up and turned a little commercial.
But even then ATS was a different place than when our master experts and moderators were stirring things up.
I learned a lot through this site, and went through some awful hoaxes and greetings to a front page chalk full of reptilian threads and videos.
But even then, ATS was a better place than it has become.
My member activity has dropped drastically over the past 6-10 months, and it has a large part to do with how popular ATS has become.
With this many people and more joining every day, the potential for sh*tty threads and topics increase.
Whats worse than just the topics, are the members attitudes as of late. very uncaring and just plain mean. As if were in a game of high school
But perhaps its just me. Perhaps I've just learned so much that most of the important threads pertaing to my interests have been read and now I'm
left with all the sucky ones.
Either way, ATS is certainly no longer my favorite place to seek knowledge and truth... its outside, in nature and the people around us.
