I Don't know how to respond? I've never had such personal ADMN response from ATS before "All" my responses have been ignored.
I've never thought that My opinion mattered.

I don't spend near as much time here as I used to. There seems to be
a lot more mean spirited right-wingers that don't really want to do anything except rag on liberals, progressives or anyone they disagree with. They seem more interested in promoting an ideology than discussing anything. Differing opinions are met with outright hostility and name calling. It's fun to engage but gets very boring after a while. BTS is a sanctuary but even it is being invaded with rightwing partisan ship and sniping.
I used to tell all my friends about this place. No longer.

I guess last year I started to see ATS developing a worrying case of political overload, combined with some splinter groups (the Truthers come to mind), that seemed to be melding the current political status with their own cause - and not in a good way. To me, there seemed to a void appearing regarding bread and butter topics of the ATS of old: saucers, ghosts, black projects, etc, appeared to be sidelined, and in their place we saw the rise of 'Prophets of Economic and Political Doom". FEMA camps, Economic Armageddon, and general Societal meltdown seemed to be at the fore.

(1) When you first encountered ATS, you were floored at all the content.
(2) You joined with excitement.
(3) You devoured threads and marveled at some of the topics and replies.
(4) You jumped in, excited to be a part of it.
(5) Over time, you've come to be very familiar with the topics.
(6) Over more time, you're seeing fewer "new" topics (because you've nearly seen it all)
(7) You post less because you're not seeing as much new information as when you first joined (when it was all new)
(8) You make a thread on how there's not so many good new threads any more, rather than make a good thread.
Healthcare... lots of confusion and people getting slammed left and right just for being for or against it.. Also, the gloom and doom. I just find it hard to swallow that every facet of our government is out to get us. Maybe I am gullible and still have faith in the Red, White, and Blue.

Another things is the low quality UFO related threads, nowdays such threads are made - Bright Light Above City, Shining Star in a Garden or some You tube etc lol. with just link to a picture no detailed explanation or why they think it's a UFO. I have stopped clicking on all new UFO threads coz of this.
