Chemtrails, trolls, and deer poop
Unless you just got on the internet today, you have undoubtedly heard of Chemtrails. More likely, you have read a bit about them, after all, this IS
ATS. There is some reasonable discussion on chemtrail threads....
And then...there are the trolls.
Below is a synopsis of how chemtrail threads evolve, concise, but the topic is Deer Poop to illustrate a point.
OP: If the drought wasn't bad enough, I have deer eating my garden up. Now I have to get up in the middle of the night a patrol my garden to keep
Member A: How do you know it is deer?
Member B: Yeah, could be grasshoppers. Grasshoppers eat 312 times their weight in one day. Source: Grasshoppersdestroygardens.org.
Member C: OP probably just hates deer. So, answer the question, how do you know it is deer? Huh?
OP: Well, we have deer in the area. The local paper had a write up by a master gardener whom stated that the deer were very hungry because of the
drought, and getting bolder as a result. I am sure it is deer.
Member A: I have deer in the area too, but they aren't eating MY garden. Got any evidence?
Member B: Did you check out my link? Do you read? I have a long history with garden pests. I studied garden pests for a living. Deny
Member C: So, a "local" paper. HA HA. Some "source"....
OP: Okay, so I went out and I found some deer poop. Convinced? Jeez....
Member A: How do you know what deer poop looks like? Are you an expert on deer poop?
Member B: Grasshoppers poop too, but it is clear that you don't want to listen to an expert.
Member C: Did you have it checked out at an independent lab? No proof...didn't happen.
OP: It IS deer poop, an old timer that lives next door verified it. He hunts deer. Sorry about not responding to the grasshopper idea, I don't have
a grasshopper problem. And, NO, I haven't taken the deer poop to an independent lab. I can provide plenty of testimonials from people here about the
deer problem in gardens locally, though.
Member A: I think you are just one of those people that haven't really analyzed the problem thoroughly, just shooting from the hip and believing
everything you read.
Member B: Grasshoppers are the NUMBER ONE garden pest, I wish you "poopers" would listen!
Member C: An old timer? THAT is your source? I am with A and B on this one. Like A said, you are haven't really convinced us...um, me, of
OP: Who are you guys?
Of course, after MANY chemtrail threads, it is not hard to identify A, B, and C. In fact, there are a few more. Of course, there are those that do
come and bring useful discussion and debate. This is desired. The difference is that A, B, and C, are
3. oblivious to sources that differ in their views.
4. hostile/demeaning to members with differing opinions.
As for me, I am done with the chemtrail threads unless I bring or respond to breaking news on the subject. But, to engage with A, B, and C? Who
needs that? That is why so many here don't comment on chemtrail threads regardless of which side they line up on.
