Yeah, the duplicate "in response" threads are pointless and should be alerted to the mods.
This is the easiest way to get them removed or redirected to the proper thread.

This is the reason I hardly ever post although i am here much of my free time! We have nice people here, we have prodygies (sp), we have experts that really know their stuff, we have wanna-be experts, we have just about every personality type here. Type A, AA, B, X,Y & Z. The mix is nice, except all of the above at one point or another love to chime in and totally destroy what you posted.
Would you go inside a shop if you glanced through the window and you absolutely hated all the merchandise you see??? NO!
Would you go in anyway and tell the manager his goods suck? Probably no, because you walked in of your own free will.
So, how about people relax and let others do their thing?

Today there have been many threads made to counteract each other do to opposing views. I know I am not a mod, but please leave the discussion to one thread! No more making threads just to prove a point of the other one. There is like an all out war between three threads on this whole religion thing.
Now there is one about how being gay is not a choice, countering the other thread. It's like a message board is not a message board, and titles are being used to argue... it's like a message board is being turned into a GIANT thread!
Please stop the madness!

Hey hey hey, Libertarians! What happened to "doing what ever you want so as long as it doesn't hurt anyone else?" Isn't this a key value in Utilitarianism, Liberty, and Freedom? (Read John Mill's On Liberty).
If you want to advocate freedom to do whatever you would like, and preach about it on ATS, you first need to let it happen here on the Internet.
Don't bug me about it, I'm not an advocate of free speech in the first place.
