Firstly I will say I agree with you on one point!
"your insane, your dumb, this is the dumbest thing I ever read
Insults like this are totally wrong & uncalled for!
Far out enough with your "wheres your proof, give me proof your wrong Im right because you dont have proof so nayr!"
This is a free website where anybody is free to join, post, debate & contribute within the boundaries of the T & C as they see fit. If someone is
pandering they have proof or declaring something to be true, other members are within their rights to ask for that proof & debate it!. Nothing wrong
with that whatsoever!
I thought "a place where I can share and learn and explore with like minded individuals"
it is if you look hard enough! ATS is filled with people vastly different opinions & points of view. Just look for like minded "Friends" simple!
WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING ON A CONSPIRACY FORUM WEBSITE if you dont believe in conspiracies, or that anything is possible
Settle down no need to shout! You talk about manners & decorum? Hmmmmm Again it is free website for anyone. You sound like you need to learn that
others can have opinion!
I joined ATS because nobody that I deal directly with, neither my freinds nor my family, have any interest in the things I am interested in, in my
daily life I have to put my interests my ideas and speculations and questions on the back burner because none of them think like I do and Ive learned
to keep my mouth shut
Probably the same reason most here joined. Nothing unique, new or ground breaking there!
just those people who tear others down
Agreed personal insults like dumb are not called for but it is open website where people are free to debate & challenge others way of thinking! Get
used to it!
gods Im so depressed now
You need to toughen up a bit! People's opinions & debate on a website gets you depressed? Maybe you need to see a doctor! (Sincerely)
More like bash the people we dont agree with forums!!
Hmmmmmmm looky looky!
Well I was wrong, you people are mean, closed minded and, and shallow, thats right shallow you stay in the shallows because you are scared of going
You don't like it when people don't agree & perceive anger look at your quote above. You are doing the exact same thing you complain about! You have
even shouted in the post! Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm You either have not thought about it enough or being hypocritical! You can choose which one!
I have read your thread and have disagreed with you stance & pointed out some issues but I am not going to get depressed over it! Just think about
what you have said & more precisely the tone. Yet you complain about others doing this! It's everyone's right to express themselves within the
If you find something nasty ..... harden up & move on - Simple
edit on 3-2-2011 by phatpackage because: (no reason given)
Ok first of all, please stop being condescending
second of all I never said anything about not liking it when people dissagree or show anger (did you really read the post properly?) I never said I
dont like skeptism or debate. The place where I said;
"wheres your proof, give me proof your wrong Im right because you dont have proof so nayr!"
I meant people who were childish about it, who demanded proof and when presented with what the poster perceived as proof end up getting really
childish and insulting, and as I said ESPECIALLY IN SKUNK WORKS,
now as for the capitals that is not yelling that is accentuating part of a sentance when I dont know how to change the colour of the text, sorry if it
came acroos as yelling.... you said;
"Agreed personal insults like dumb are not called for but it is open website where people are free to debate & challenge others way of thinking! Get
used to it!"
debate and challenges to ones way of thinking is fine and dandy, I'd still be locked in a protestant nightmare if it wasnt for some very smart
skeptical atheists forcing me to think twice, but theres a line between challenging someone into a healthy debate and going rambo on their ###!
Again my rant wasnt for people with genuine desires to express their position on any related topic!
"You need to toughen up a bit! People's opinions & debate on a website gets you depressed? Maybe you need to see a doctor! (Sincerely)"
Toughen up a bit? Maybe depressed wasnt the right word its more like deflated, but anyway proper use of words aside, why should I harden up? If this
is a place where everyone is free to express their feelings in a supposedly open enviroment then I should be free to express the fact that seeing so
many people who simply wanted to share an idea get attacked (not inspired to debate) left right and centre, made me angry then after ranting through
my anger left me depressed (or rather, deflated), why should I not feel for others? Why should I give up my humanity and not speak up, even if its
simply about thread bullies, just to keep the "tough" people comftable or whatever your motive is for telling me to harden up and stop
complaining..... NOT ENOUGH OF US GET ANGRY, anger is good anger is constructive, childish insults are not. I will not see a doctor because as far as
I am concerned it is people who dont find certain things worth getting worked up over that have the problem!
"Probably the same reason most here joined. Nothing unique, new or ground breaking there!"
I dont understand why you said that, nothing about my post was supposed to be new or groundbreaking I was ranting.... "expressing" myself
"You don't like it when people don't agree & perceive anger look at your quote above. You are doing the exact same thing you complain about! You
have even shouted in the post! Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm You either have not thought about it enough or being hypocritical! You can choose which one!"
I dont understand how ranting about how angry people who conciously insult others makes me constitutes me being shallow and closed minded??? Surely
you agree that people insulting others because they dont agree with them is childish and shallow?? Or are you one of those people?
Anyway, whatevers I think senseless bickering and insults should be something humans should stop doing on forums, if not in our direct enviroments,
and you apparently dont agree, fair enough, but dont call me a hypocrite for not liking childish behaviour and then ranting about it........ I
seriously dont get your angle here
Anyho, thanks for replying, happy reading
