More and more often I find useless threads like this flagged to the top, which goes to prove my point. ATS is being flooded with a breed of over-sensitive people who have taken up permanent residence here in hopes to hide away from the harsh reality of the real world.
Well the problem is, the purpose of ATS is to be a god damn magnifying glass on the harsh realities of the world and to focus in on the good, the bad and especially the ugly... so as to learn the truth and deny ignorance.

I can't disagree more with this. People are increasingly sensitive toward opinions contrary to their own. Because they are unable to articulate themselves and engage in civil dialogue, they yell "hate", "bigotry," or "racism." For example, take a peek at the birther threads. We don't get 5 posts into them without someone saying"A black man is President, deal with it." No rational dialogue, no civil discourse, just accusations of racism.
This is hardly an outlet for hate. It's an outlet for disagreeing. If you can't handle that someone somewhere thinks your opinions is wrong, then you're too sensitive for life. Best of luck to you.

And now they and you are some other forum's gain
I don't blame you for leaving
just wish you and many like you had been encouraged to remain with ATS, instead of discouraged
"Since when did this website become an outlet for hate?"
