-Have you ever considered that people really don't care about what other people perceive ATS to be?
-Have you considered that by people refraining from flagging threads they chose to flag they are censoring themselves, to please you? To please random
-Is the goal of ATS to become credible and change the world?
I don't know why there is this huge issue with how "They" whoever "they" are perceive ATS because of dooms-day threads.
I can guarantee you one thing, by censoring, or altering the natural flow of interests on this site you will begin to develop a skewed view of what
"really" interests people.
The concern seems to be mostly in the doom threads being at the top of ATS...well isn't that what is supposed to happen to a thread of significantly
"high interest"...be on the top? Seems as its working as intended...
The thread that obviously sparked your crusade was no doubt the 450+ flagged thread. Obviously there was a lot of interest there, obviously people
didn't flag uninteresting based in fairy tale material.
If you have considered nothing else, please consider this:
The thread was very intriguing to say the least, and guess what. I learned stuff in that thread. I learned that there was an Executive Order written
just recently, I learned details about Obama's trip to India, I learned a great deal about the human Psyche and how it recognizes patterns. I learned
there was a TV episode of 9-11 six months prior to 9-11. I learned all this crazy stuff that I would have never thought to look for or think of.
I'm sorry you can't find the same value in a thread that some can. Did I truly think doom was coming? NO...did I consider it? YES...
Remember someone who says "everything will be fine tomorrow" is being just as predictive as those who say "something will happen tomorrow!" In the
end nobody knows and its naive to think otherwise. Ive noticed however the people predicting doom are less pushy and insulting to make you believe
them than the people who claim they know the future by saying
"nothing it going to happen and your a crazy troll loon spewing vomit on these forums ruining the anonymous peoples view of the anonymous ATS me!!"
