Ah, Skeptic. I see that you have once again posted about manners and decorum. However, instead of instructing members of the merits of behaving on a
higher moral plane (as you repeatedly have in the past), you have finally resulted to issuing a simple and stern warning to the members. You say that
it is because of “Recent events”, yet you do not attempt to explain them. Perhaps you are referring to who can at least be called perhaps “The
I see that you are finally coming to the realization of the sad truth that I have been trying to explain to you these many times. That truth being
that if you decide to openly include the masses of the entire population without regard to any standards of truth and critical review then you will be
inundated with the rantings of the mentally insane. It has been this way for some time now, but it is only recently that it is beginning to widely be
known that ATS harbors some of the most ridiculous and insane groupings of individuals in the world. This has been proven beyond a shadow of a doubt
“in light of recent events” as you have said. Yet, if I rightly call an insane poster, insane, on this forum for their rantings and illogical
statements I, and not they, are seen as the antagonist who is “not being kind to others”. So, the person who leaves, or rarely posts, is the
logical critical thinker, while the mentally insane continue to rant and rave about meaningless fancy without any critical review or response.
Now, instead of being a site administrator, you have sunken to the level of a scolding parent bringing out the switch upon his uncontrollable,
degenerate children. My, have far things have been allowed to fall eh? I warned you of where this site was headed a long time ago. You have allowed
the insane to post here without critical review and now the site will begin to be know as “The Asylum” by the various law enforcement authorities
of the world. Your desire for continued viewership at all costs has brought you, and us, to this stage.
For how much longer did you expect the atheists, the lizard alien accusers, and now the Lucid Dreamers, to continue to post without their due critical
responses before it began to affect the membership and the entire image of the site? Did you honestly think that this could continue unabated for
infinity without some sort of massive degradation of advertising income and viewership? Do you have any idea where it is that this site is headed?
Well I will give you a clue.
The intelligent will continue to leave, the insane will continue to thrive here, and in the end, the site will be excluded by advertisers and the
general public alike. New sites will be born that punish the insane and delete their posts instead of those of their detractors. This site, despite
its name, will live on a lingering death until not even the insane visit anymore for their insatiable need for attention at any cost will not be met
by the limited viewership. Is that where you want ATS to go, because that is where it has been going full steam for some time now, and its finally
rearing its ugly head in many very public ways?
There is only one answer to this, as I have informed you, and that is to allow for critical review of posters. Stop allowing the insane to have their
run of your site and it will again be what you want it to be. Allow your moderators to demand logical review and proof of wild claims and the insane
will leave here in droves. You are the one who allows them to rant and take over the forum unchecked. You are the one who has let your web site be
taken over by the needy, the mentally challenged, and the criminally minded. It is not the members that need to be scolded and switched it is you that
needs this. You are the one who has allowed this, and still you only rant about decorum and manners to those who firtsly have none, and secondly come
here for your protection from logic and sanity.
Clean up the nut house of “The Asylum” and then, and only then, will you have manners and decorum.
