I, for one, think the motto is one that follows you. Not just while we/me/you are here at the forums giving our full blown expression's and
opinion's but when you are watching the boob tube and watching the world unfold knowing full well that everything you hear cannot be trusted but with
a grain of salt.
It has been a while since I have posted to anything here on ATS, but this is a note worthy agreement to disagree with any altercation of teh "Deny
Ignorance" slogan. Granted, I have had my moments here at the forums with little more than a big slice of humble pie, but for the most part, I have
gained more denial of ignorance and arrogance here on the ATS forums than I had experienced in the chaos of every day living. At least when I do or
believe in something that has yet to be taught to me, ATS member's have always U2U'ed me to set me straight or give me the low down on what parts I
have missed as to represent myself as a contributor and not an insulting braggart or idiot.
I thank the three amigo's from time to time, and that is because if it wasn't for this incredibly insightful and intellectual group of individuals,
I'd still be believing in Santy Claus!!!!! JK
I have been coming here since early '06, and I have seen them come and go. The only problem is with that assessment is that the old school ATSer's
are lurking, waiting to read another thread of interest or intrigue, to bring light to someone that is mislead or misguided in their way of thinking,
not to smite or condemn, but to set straight and create new avenues of proper and possible thinking. And they do let it be known when a wrong thinking
pattern of easy acceptance is nothing more than self ideology and nothing more, you would recognize an Old School ATSer, they are the ones pointing
out the facts and trying to be a productive part of the conversation, hell, you may even get a U2U in private as to keep it discrete and honorable.
"Denying Ignorance" is exactly what the goal is here.
"Don't change a thing ATS, other than the improvement's you are apparently making as we grow. The motto should stay, it represents 'US'!"
