Do you own a website with so many hits? I'm guessing on and therefore you have no clue what the costs of such a site are. If you don't like
it here then leave, some of us want to improve the site.
Here is the twisted logic that people of your ilk relish. People like you believe that if someone speaks out, that he or she has no knowledge or that
they don’t want to be here. I do have a clue about how much it costs to run a website of this magnitude. I understand money was spent not just on
software, code heads, promotions and advertisements but also on legal fees to set the company up and to write the T&C and other legal jargon. So
you’ve failed and I’ll show you again how you’ll continue to fail
You telll me if I don’t like it to leave? Well if you or SO don’t like AMERICA why don’t YOU leave?
I have no issue with ATS trying to crank out a little more money for themselves because this website is a full time project. Anyone who has
ever run web servers knows that (yeah i've run them and set them up so i know). I am sure ATS now makes a good deal of money and i can't blame the
owners for trying to increase revenue. Let's be fair, they do try and put more into the website to make it better and it is a good place for
Well say it. Why try to PIMP the users by giving them a false sense of security or value? What SO is doing is no different from what TPTB do when it
comes to voting, which is, give the masses and idea, or something to strive for, allow them to think they have power, direct them towards the agenda
and sit back as the dough piles up. Friend, this is Hegelian Dialectic. I'd prefer if he came out and stated his intentions not conceal it under some
My only issues with this website are:-
1. The fact that a post by SO recently talked about stopping trolls and the personal insults flying around. This is great but i have seen so many
personal attacks that have not been addressed, even after being reported!
I agree. I’ve been attacked, in the other thread SO made even, and I also directed mods to a very disrespectful remark from another member directed
to people of African/African American backgrounds. They did absolutely nothing even though a mod posted two minutes after the remark was made, and
after another mod said they saw it. So from here on out, I’m not even worried about the mods. They are simply avatars, names and icons I can’t
ignore because the function to ignore them was not coded into the site.
2. The continuing refusal to discuss drug issues. As soon as someone mentions personal use they are shut down. Now ATS is a private club and
can do whatever it likes, but you would think free speech would extend to drugs. At least when someone mentions personal experience they should delete
that post and not just shut a thread.
We had a drug forum what happened? Many threads there pertained to the governments involvement with drug distribution. However, if you want threads
about smoking the best this, or injecting the best that, no way.
3. The mods seem biased, when discussing some very sensitive topics only one or two mods acn keep their heads and keep the topic on course.
Otherwise it gets ignored and screw the OP.
Seem bias? Seem? LOL! Listen, go back and read SO’s other thread, the one about trolls and political hacks, and make sure you read my responses, as
I give clear examples of mod bias and the reason why ATS is going down the toilet. However, guess what I was told? “If you don’t like it leave.”
Sound familiar, buddy?
