Yes I do agree that there has been a great deal of utter nonsense posted here on ATS lately and threads not even worthy of a click of the mouse. Like
you, I also added a thread a few weeks ago moaning about the lack of interesting and well put together threads that have just seemed to turn into
folks wanting to be noticed just to obtain a flag or a star. I don't really give a hoot about stars and flags anyway, is it something that is really
necessary within our lives?
But after I posted my thread moaning about the lack of good and interesting threads, I came to realise after various replies that you have to be
patient for the good things to come along, and wait for the things that you personally find of interest to you. It is very similar to 20 people
sitting around a table, people who have never met before and just generally chatting. These people can all be of different age groups, ethnicity,
sexuality, religion and culture etc. Therefore you are not going to agree or indeed get on with everyone sat around that table, Some you will find of
interest, some of lower IQ, some boring, some humorous, etc. So in order to progress to fulfill your personal needs you will find yourself being drawn
around the table during the evening of conversation in your own kind of way deleting the wheat from the chaff. ATS is no different I believe to that
scenario around the table.
I also believe that due to the large scope of topics that ATS has available to discuss on the website, this also draws a wide age range of people
because of its interesting content. I see questions asked on ATS that I can sometimes identify with, due to the fact that I was young once and I was
always asking questions, some of which were also stupid. I personally am glad that people want to ask questions, no matter how mundane or stupid they
may sound to you, if you don't ask questions then you never learn.
I have posted threads that I have spent a great deal of time putting together, but have had just a few replies and comments, but just seem to vanish
in no time at all into the ether. But I also think that people also have to realise and took me a while, is that people use ATS depending on their
time zone, therefore things can disappear without a trace. If I post something here in Australia, the other countries around the world may still be in
bed, asleep, and by the time they awaken and come on to ATS, certain threads have passed them by.
So basically, what we have now happening on ATS, is people writing threads complaining about the lack of interesting threads, and then in the next
month or so we will have people writing threads complaining about the amount of threads complaining about the threads of complaint........
S**T, I am confusing myself now....................................
