seriously i do not see how the O.P. is any different to a prediction thread or somebody claiming they are a alien.
the claims in the O.P. are just as unproven and could be seen as paranoid, just as much as the threads that are being complained about.
you should read the thread "why do you star posts" it may give some insight into why some of the thread that people think are crazy get flags and
stars. but is it not the case that just because some ATS members think something is stupid and should not reach the top of ATS, there are other
members that take an interest in those subjects? you can list any subject and it will get some flags and stars for many different reasons.
as for new members it is worth keeping in mind that they might not know as much as you, therefore they star and flag because they agree or think it is
good evidence whilst being unaware of the many reason why it is not.
the O.P. has made a conspiracy out of normal things from what i can tell, but they have shared their concerns and thought with us, some will agree and
others will think it took a leap to come to those conclusions, just like the threads the O.P. questions, the same thing happens.
how many flags and stars did this thread get? is there a conspiracy or does it just reflect how many people agree or appreciate the effort or think
good points were made?
