Incorrect and stop venting...

There are plenty of mods, who listen...

Lemme tell you, there are plenty....

In order to get different results try different things... Different from venting on this thread... U2U me if you would like assistance, in getting a mod's attention...

for a European I was hoping for complexity in action.... Not such a cowboy type of action...

Making demands from a free-for-all-to-use website with a fairly aggressive list of free services to members (how about that unlimited upload space in a CDN network, huh?) managed almost entirely by volunteers with limited time?

It's unfortunate we're unable to meet the expectations of those with an overwhelming sense of self-entitlement. We do our best, really we do, but clearly it's not enough on some occasions.

I have to say I think this website is absolutely awesome! My only problem is that I've become addicted to it, and have problems walking away for a while.

I want to send out a sincere thanks for all the hard work involved in making this website possible.

I know it's technically not my responsibility as "just a member", however it is my right I feel as this is an open forum, so I would be remiss if I didn't bump this thread to perhaps remind everyone of this ATS standard. The topic of race is quite abundant here on ATS due to the recent events with the Trayvon Martin incident.

I have read some pretty passionate responses, and some (imo) that are bordering on the civility and decorum threshold. I know I am nobody from Adam as far as the ATS whole is concerned but please do a fellow member a favor and do your part to maintain civil discussions regarding this or any other issue. One can easily maintain civility and decorum and still intelligently deliver one's opinion on a given topic regardless of your stance.

I agree wholeheartedly and just recently bumped an earlier thread I had started some time ago. I think it's especially important that our newer members absorb this information, as some have not yet acquired that rhythm of give and take that defines a well-crafted discussion.

Concur.

We all need watchdogs who can kick us in the butt and wake us up not just in real life but on ATS as well.

I dunno how and why the 'entitlement' mentality creeped into ATS community...

I think this thread deserves a bump right about now.

Bumping the thread so that the 'OP's' clarification remains in the forum's consciousness.

ATS is indeed a very interesting site, quite comprehensive in its scope and range of subjects for discussion, but I think more importantly, it remains an international fulcrum of inter-cultural discourse, where disparate cultures exchange dialogue in almost real time.

Not only cultures bump up against one another, but even moral and ethical differences, even societal ones, and I do not believe that no one member does not participate out of some compelling agenda, whether it be benign or malignant of intent. With such a fractious membership, and it is fractious, it is hardly surprising that 'civility and decorum' become victims of passionate correspondence when different cultures, belief systems, ideas and concepts interface with one another.

Everytime I log on to the site, I find myself rolling my eyes in disbelief and strained by incredulity at some of the threads, and some of the postings within threads, that I often ask myself why I continue to participate when I see such an abundance of preposterous subjects being debated that lower the gravitas of the site in general, and contaminate real serious discussion. Gravitas is all, and without it, you cannot be taken seriously. Its absence leads to the equal absence of credibility, and that is most damaging.

In relation to gravitas, civility and decorum aids in its growth. The last thing a website like ATS needs is to be perceived as though it is the internet version of the Jerry Springer show.
