The original post was made awhile ago, and many have yet to watch this. The song and video are truly awesome. Given current events in the world, this song really relaxes you imo. Credits go to v1rtu0s0 for the OP, I am just bringing it back to life. If you like, please star n flag the original post at the link. Enjoy.
Video: (link in op is dead, here is new) www.youtube.com...
if everyone just clicked off comments they didnt like or dont agree with there would be no debates here and this site would be flooded with disinformation..

I'm inclined to agree with Mr.London on this.
Yes, the video is breathtaking and worthwhile.
But, it seems that the creation of a NEW thread simply to bump a recent similar one goes against the grain and is likely to rub people the wrong way. For one thing, if a thread has the merits and moxie to stand the test of time, and stand on its own, then it is a testament to its value. By groping for more viewership once the original post starts to fade smacks of desperation and makes the original thread "cheaper" than it would have been if not artificially propped up.
Imagine if EVERY thread at ATS that a member deems worthy of increased viewership were permitted to simply be 're-introduced' once it begins to fade away. We would soon be clogged by "Bumper" threads as members one after another attempted to reinvigorate issues they think should be artificially elevated back to 'top-of-the-heap' status. No thank you. If there is no T&C rule against such behavior already there ought to be. What say you, Mods?
My biggest concern however is with the poster asking that we not only visit the thread but that we also "star and flag" it. Are you serious? ATS is now a campaign for votes? A popularity contest? Does this request not go against the entire premise of the star and flag system? I thought we members star and flag threads based on OUR OWN determination of a thread being worthy of it - and NOT because another poster is campaigning for us to go there and "do it"!
Just IMHO, but this solicitation of star and flag votes is crossing the line. It cheapens the whole purpose of such a system. Not sure about anyone else, but I won't participate in the prostitution of ATS's noble and HONORABLE star & flag methodology.
It's sad - as the film in question is indeed wonderful. Pumping for extra points and eyeballs takes a lot away from it...edit on 7/3/2011 by Outrageo because: whtvr
