Oh man that was one post I could have gone without reading.
I suppose after being on ATS for as long as I have I can just not notice the sick threads and do all I can to avoid the ones I do see.
It can be a problem but I was told once that the best way to combat those types of threads is to ignore them, that the thread starters usually give
up and either go away or stop posting that kind of stuff.
Anyway Im out of here but glad to hear you had the chance to remain cool, calm and collected in what could have gone differently had you reacted
It was a good day for you.
Did you ever stop to consider that the reason some post what you refer to as "sick" threads is because they want people to be aware..of crap that
actually happens..so maybe just maybe people through that awareness can actually help.
The fact that you can't even read a thread or post about real situations ,and that you have to combat the reality of these situations, discussed in
threads, by ignoring them,shows me you really don't care at all, about some of the real live crap that people have to live through.
Yep..lets ignore the post about the cop who tied up her kids naked, and beat them..cause ..OMG ..we're just feeding into the posters attention
seeking..I for one am glad people who know of this stuff INFORM us of it ,a s ugly as it may be.
How else are you supposed to raise awareness that it happens,and continues to happen.
Its people like you who contribute to it still happening,because you refuse to acknowedge it exists, and dare blame the posters for it.
Like its such a crime to talk about the extreme sorrow some people are going through in this world,at the hands of people who should have our
respect..like a police officer in this example.
wow..I can't believe you said those things in your post...and I always thought you were someone who actually cared about real suffering...but now I'm
thinking your just someone who likes to pretend they do.
