And yet... That is likely why this thread is hovering near the top of popular threads!

The reality is that headlines are how we decide what to read-- even when we know it is going to result in frustration due to the false claims-- that is how many OP's generate traffic and comments.

I hesitate to admit what sort of title will most attract my attention, but something along the lines of a new report being released, with link to an off-site and respectable source; but there are precious few of those.

please don't mistake "offficial" for "truth" thans nearly as bad as mistaking "illegal" for "immoral"

I chose that heading I chose it because those to phrases were what I wished to draw attention to and since this thread is in the board buisness thread and other people have copmplained about similar issues in below top secret I presumed it would be self evident to members of this site what this thread would be about.

As for me Trolling, this is the first time I've been accused of it
feels kinda good, do I get a special badge? would someone mind calling me a disinfo agent to? I feel like I'm on a roll

These MUST READ! ABSOLUTE PROOF! threads almost always have a solicitation for flags and stars in the OP.

Please flag and star this so it gets the maximum exposure!! or somesuch nonsense.

while it may not relate directly to the title of this thread, here's a great example of basically the exact same thread getting taking two different directions...

www.abovetopsecret.com...

www.abovetopsecret.com...

SAME content... but one with a more sensational headline, one has 5 flags and 1 page, one has261 flags and 28 pages.

This exact topic is already being discussed in a current thread here:

Its time to put an end to the word proof in titles, unless you actually have proof

Do you have proof that this thread of absolute proof is being discussed in another absolute proof forum.Please provide proof because all extraordinary claims of multiple proof threads require proof and more proof.Hope this clears things up.

Maybe the answer is to have an interactive button for all readers/posters that match certain contributor or member time and post count levels to be able to vote on the "proof" or "proven" accuracy of evidence presented in a thread. After which an official "[PROVEN]" title can be appended to it and only editable by ATS staff and owners.

Much like a jury...then you can weed out all the titles you like.
