Before you get all pissy and bash me remember this is the rant forum..I like to vent here
So anyway...please people stop posting a line that says "wow is this real, check it out" or "I don't know what to think of this" and give a link
with NO information as to what your thread is even about.
Per ATS T&C (yea I know I sound snobby so what) you are suppose to post something from the link/source and then put your own opinion and something
about it in the original post of the thread. WHY is that so hard for people to follow?
I have seen this a lot lately from new and old members. It's annoying. I don't even read those anymore. I won't click the link, I just alert it and
move along. It tells me you are LAZY!
Do you any of you who do this even care about what you post? It's like you are putting up a status on FB or something and you don't care if people
respond or not. I hate when the OP makes a thread and never responds and usually they are the ones like I am ranting about..
Oh and the other rant I have is you people who crave flags and stars. Are you that insecure that you need validation of your work? STOP asking for
people to flag and star you. Just stop, please you look desperate. Personally I wish they would get rid of those things. I think that all the stupid
threads that get all the attention that have ZERO validitity and are just obsurd would get lost amongst the boards and the threads that really are
something would get more attention. I see so many well written and informed threads get lost in the pages for some stupid UFO video or some lame ghost
that isn't even anything! No it's not an elf or a gnome or a leprachaun. Deal with it...
There are some of you who abuse the two threads are ok as long as one is in the BA forum, that annoys the piss out of me. Shows me you just want
attention and don't care if someone else has posted it already. Why not let someone else have a thread. I mean can you really keep up with 10 threads
a day (yes Im exaggerating). Also those are the same ones who just post without looking at the boards first. Yes I know search isn't that great but
the search in the right corner, the little search field where you can type in words, well that one works much better than the adv search. I love those
who say I searched and didn't find it yet it was right on the main page and the recent posts page... well could it be your searching methods? Use
major names and dates with the main topic of the thread for a search. I think search works, people just don't know how to use it properly.
Now think about it. A MASSIVE earthquake hits someone at say 12:30pm, and it's 6pm do you REALLY think there isn't a thread on it already? Why make
one, it should be obvious that within mins of the situation there would be a thread. REMEMBER members from the globe are on here, ATS never sleeps
and apparently neither do I because this is why I pick up on this stuff so much..Yes it bothers me and yes I am complaining about it...this is the
rant forum, it's my place to let out the steam on anything I desire.
Ok I think I'm done...but seriously people just stop
