I've been posting on here since '04. I've lurked since the site went live.
A couple years ago, a ton of religious nuts flooded ATS. I refer to it as the "ATS Christian Conspiracy". I've seen it done to other forums I
frequent - some religious group (Jesus forums? Youth groups? I have no clue where they come from) all decides to focus on one public board to
proselytize their beliefs while masquerading as legit members of the community.
Back in the good ol' days, you would have religious stuff in the proper forum. And it encompassed all aspects of religion and spirituality, not just
the guy on the cross. Now 50% of everything posted on ATS has religious undertones.
I stopped posting about a year ago because the place has gotten to be unbearable. However, I keep finding myself coming back in hopes that things
will get better. You used to go to Recent Posts and almost every-single one would get your attention. I miss that.
One thing this site lacks are people who will stand up and let someone know they are talking out of their ass. Even the slightest bit of heated
discussion would get your account flagged or banned. Posts are censored now like never before and I think that reflects what has happened to the
I figure now is the time to be vocal and see if things can change for the better. I'll flat out troll any thread that comes off one-sided now.
Anything religious that isn't in the proper subforum i'll troll. I'll even troll those people making the completely retarded posts that you are
talking about in the OP. The best that can happen would be ATS returning to a plethora of knowledge. If I end up getting banned, that will just let
me know this place is hopeless.
