But you are not known as the most sincere poster on ATS I have come to see. If you take a stance such as yours - one day you will feel a turn in
momentum against yourself - as you have crushed the dreams of many who merely come here to open their minds and LEARN many things they have no chance
to "in the real world", free of sarcastic and belittling badgering.
You my friend. may play the victim card (as you often do) - and then try to assert your 'authority' on subject matter I find you have very little
experience in talking about. In short - you have dug your own grave. If any advice I could offer you, it would be to take a step back, re-evaluate
your understanding of how people learn at their own rate, and the existence YOU THINK YOU KNOW may not be so...
I can understand anger in the political forum so those people should get a pass. afterall they love to argue so lets let them do their thing.
I like ATS for being able to discuss and share ideas, I hope people who dont contribute to discussions but instead derail them should be dealt with.
Not sure if you can but why not let mods censor the suers who do it for 24 hours, no bans just everytime censor them.
To me this would solve the issue while providing corrective reinforcement that would not stop a user from participating but would discourage them from
causing trouble. Alot of like ATS for its professional manner of dealing with subjects. The community is what makes a site and removing their
ability to post for 24 hours would be a step in the right direction without it being a permanent ban allowing the person to further contribute.
IMO if you keep on topic, manage your enthusiasm (anger? control freak thingie?), don't swear and don't belittle someone else's ideas, contribute
in a progressive educational way, and if you are an expert in some field please provide proof (links) so we can make our own judgements, after all
even the "so called" experts argue with each other; hot headedly too.
The more I learn, the more I learn how little I know.
I;m with the OP, the anger comes from the times we live in. With so much negativity on a day to day basis. Whether it's in our personal daily lives
or the media and other news outlets accompanied with the steep decline in the economy causing immeasurable amounts of stress you can see where anger
would build up and people have had it with the way things are and the way things are going.
I wish people would quit blaming the media and every other external force out there for their deplorable postings and personal attacks. It is simply
passing the buck. The problem is not "out there." It comes from inside. If we cannot take personal responsibility our lack of common decency, then
the world is lost already. "Fix" yourself first before you try to "fix" someone else.
I honestly think that part of this "Anger" and "Conflicts" have a lot to do with what the CIA has begun doing. It is a known fact that they have
started operations to send disinformation on sites for various reasons. Mostly on conspiracy theories and overall discontent with the government.
Just think, this is basically a site loaded with all the latest alternative news so I can assure that ATS is a prime target for the CIA to be
conducting these operations.
I can tell you what is causing the anger: we are choking on the lies. Lies about "The War on Terror"(the American people), the economy(we're
broke), the moon(we didn't get to really see what is there), Mars(SSDD), our freedoms being stripped away, Obama(Bush on steroids), blah, blah, blah,
etc, etc, etc. When you have to drink out of a #ty toilet you get sick. Nuff said
