Thank you for re-posting this topic.There is a lot out there that people have to ingest and unless they have been doing it for a long time a lot of
information is new to them. They do not have all the information and what sounds like proof may have been debunked in the past. Yes it is important to
research your information, trust me I had to learn the hard way myself. Although I have been following many topics found on this site since 1978, I
made several mistakes in my posts that caused back lash, but hey we all learn. ATS is the greatest site on the web for little known information and
conspiracies. It is also the greatest site on the web if you want to find the truth(or as close as possible) because people come in and tare a topic
to shreds and put it back together with the most up to date and pertinent pieces of information in the name of puzzle building and finding truth. I
would venture to say (IMO) ATS is one of the most hated sites on the web by Governments around the world because of this fact. The problem is, is that
this isn't your run of the mill forum site. People take the posts very seriously and will set someone straight in a heart beat or less. You must have
your information straight, be a good debater, and/or be willing to admit you were wrong. Newer people do not understand how things work and post. They
will be set straight and a lot of people cant handle it and leave. This (I believe) is for the common good of the site as we are expected to "Know our
stuff". Think of it this way, we don't take anything at face value and you will be chastised to push you to learn or leave. An initiation of sorts.
Most of us do it politely as adults are supposed to act, but there comes a time when the frustration builds and that frustration is released. Be
patient with them, correct them politely, and move on, it's simple.
Edit to say: Also remember sometimes proof is in the eyes of the beholder. Most proof is just someone else saying something is true backed by their
reputation and sometimes this is even proven wrong.
