I've lurked on this site for a long time. I've only been a contributing member for a short period. I have noticed a great decline in the quality
of posts, and the conduct of users, as of late.
What has happened?
Why are the star and flag systems being used as candy to hand out to everyone to who took the time to click submit? How are we supposed to flag
important threads if every pointless thread (including blank ones) gets 10 flags almost instantly? Who is sitting on the sit hitting refresh and
flagging every darn thread?
And what the heck is with some of the people lately. some people are outright rude, others are so touchy you can't even post a thumbs up without
Why am I a disinfo agent or troll if I disagree with you?
Why are so many baited threads being created? You know what I mean, ones that right off the bat are going to draw racist comments. Is this being
done on purpose to actually weed out those users?
It's funny and I'm in the middle of complaining but..... why are so many people coming here and whining and complaining when someone disagrees with
them, or proves them wrong?
Maybe I was confused as to the nature of ATS. I thought it was a forum, a community, in which topics could be discussed from all angles, but instead
what I see is "Believe it or you are a troll" instead. honestly some people are so far up their own butts they think half of us here are paid to
spread disinformation here.
I'm almost ready to call this the ATS psychosis. Everything I say is fact, regardless of proof, and anyone who asks for proof, or questions it, is a
government agent monitoring my online activity. How full of yourself do you honestly have to be to believe that?
Ya ya, I know, the government runs propaganda and all that, i get it, but they aren't running it against some half literate thread on ATS, sorry
folks, we're simply not that important.
What IS important is the fact that I no longer see ATS as a source for credible information. Those days are over. It's now hoaxes and pseudo
science and any attempt to bring rational thought or SCIENCE into the debate turns ugly, on both sides, I admit that freely.
I used to think that someone would come here with information, present it to the community, then we'd dig and pull and research to prove or disprove
it. Now the very thought of investigation means I'm a disinfo troll on the government payroll.
The Mayan 2012 prophecy is made up, they made no such prophecies and there is ample proof to support this, but any time I mention it, i'm a close
minded disinfo troll.
H.A.A.R.P. can not control the weather, nor can it create earthquakes, again, disinfo troll government agent.
the moon is exactly where it should be, not crashing into the earth.
there is no nibiru and any "references" to it in Mayan history or Sumarians, is made up as well, ample proof, no matter, disinfo troll.
So from now on, I consider it a badge of honor to be called a disinfo troll by some of you here, at least I'd putting some effort into it to find out
the truth, whatever that might be, and that is more than a lot of people here can say.
I'm sad, but i know the community is strong and we can turn this around and make this a two sided debate again.
