I can agree with this as well. There's nothing if there isn't freedom of thought, speech, and expression.
I could never say that it is the fault of ATS or the Mods or anything else having to do with the site itself, it's T&C's, moderation or anything
It IS up to the individual to search for sources of verification. Many, many people do not. EVEN if provided with links, they simply won't go to
This is not a problem with the board, nor a complaint about the board in any way. I think the OP's intent (forgive my presumptions, if wrong about
this OP and feel free to flame me out of existence) was to point out the irony of people claiming to "Deny Ignorance" (as per the site motto) while
actively, and sometimes arrogantly insisting on their own ignorance couched in subjective "truths."
IE: foot stamping huffing statements of "I'm right because I say so and I'm right. I don't have to prove anything to you. I know I'm right
because I know I'm not wrong. You have to believe me or you're going to (insert any undesirable state or condition here)"
It's an individual thing, not a site thing.
