People have no clue how bad it used to be in the past. I feel that people have their rose tinted goggles on whenever they complain about how bad ATS
is now, and, how anti-semetic they might think it is, or stuff like that. ATS used to be a place for hoaxes, Indigo children, people who thought they
were aliens, and, for people to ask if Bush was a reptillian or not- while not focusing as much on the real issues. I feel that we actually have
evolved as a community.
Now more and more of us are discussing the real issues- we're still discussing conspiracy theories and stuff like that, but we're tackling the more
important issues of the day. I thought ATS did a great job at tackling the bank bailout and all the fed nonsense. There are some right wing plants
here and there, but, it's nowhere near as bad on www.infowars.com, and other websites like that which have sold out.
My point is- that we've evolved as a community to talk about more serious and real issues. We used to always be worrying about various UFO hoaxes-
and not the real ones, and, we used to make such a big deal when a fake prophecy got created. I actually challenge those that say that ATS has gotten
to be really bad- and I would say that the quality of the topics have actually gotten quite good.
Okay, I'm done my rant.
