I can not believe it has come to this. I would like to request ATS add either an IQ test to access certain forums or perhaps even an IQ badge or maybe
even a way to sort posts by IQ. Maybe a basic test to be allowed to create a thread.
What is currently frustrating me more than anything in threads is the increasing number of threads being created that literally read as if they are
written by children. I know IQ is not everything and I am not complaining about spelling, grammer, general laziness or the occasional 'brain fart'.
I do not want to be percieved to be attacking any individual and was not going to provide an example but I need to to get my point across
*cough* thread *cough*
Ya get me?

- I am not saying this person is not intelligent because they are obviously russian, I am saying stuff like this getting through is lowering the over
all site quality. And although I want to avoid censorship - where do we draw the line?
- but I am sure others know what I am talking about. I am talking about threads where people are not even showing the slightest ability to attempt to
answer their own question, to be able to see that every coin has 2 sides, making comparissons between 2 things that are obviously so different they
can not be compared - or as I have seen today threads where people are not even making any sense. Maybe they are using a translator, or they are
intoxicated, a bot or they have a some other irregularity but their threads are not even interpretable.
Am I the only one seeing this pattern becoming more common? it used to be a very rare event.
I feel like the age of the average active user on ATS has dropped. Am I alone?
