But when you press enter to get in here. What are your expectations?
Hmm, I hope to be informed about actual events and the speculation that goes with bringing them onboard. So maybe I am more of an "I want to know
what's happening " guy, or news junkie, and ats is my drug o choice.
Also, I dig the corresponding too, and the ats community is, imo a pretty hospitable place. So this site has become my daily provider of information
and cyber camaraderie. Yes it does have a conspiratorial flavor, but I would liken it to sports, entertainment or social events. It is a choice of
connectedness not so much because it is of conspiratorial nature, but more because it is news and fellowship.
I do get your premise though, and yes there was a time when I would have considered myself addicted to conspiracies. It was when I got caught up in
the initial momentum launched by 911 suspicions AND David Icke, at the same time.(I know, Icke, but I have moved past him) I spent a lot of time
getting my hands on every book, documentary and info I could, obsessively. I felt driven to finish unearthing such mind blowing paradigm shattering
truths(?), and then spill my findings on every pour soul within listening distance. Ahh, the good ole days, ensnared in a complex webb of connected
dots to epic proportions, free to dominate my mind.
Whew, glad I am past those times!
So yes, conspiracy subjects are high in novel content and potential self empowerment, thus making them a very attractive endeavor.
