NASA elenin thread

I love how the OP says "someone please research." Um isn't that THEIR job and isn't that what you do when posting?
I have noticed LAZY posters lately and it is really annoying. I can't count the times i have clicked into a thread where it's a line and a link or a
couple lines and a link yet NOTHING about what they are talking about. It takes 5mins to put together a small thread with outside sources and excerpts
from whatever article you are using. It seems people want to post like it's a FB feed and it annoys me because if I wanted that I'd go to my FB! I
alert threads I see that are set up this way but sometimes I feel like im being annoying but it is ANNOYING to click a thread title only for it to be
complete an utter crap. Nice catchy title and nothing else! It seems many OP's now want everyone else to do their research and thread.....AHHHH!!
It seems that there are more and more threads that draw you in and then are just complete garbage - can't the
Mods make the title change once something is proven to be a false claim
And cant people research things properly before posting a thread and it being pulled apart in minutes - just plain lazy.
Personally I think you should be post banned for a month if you post misleading titles!! I can't stand people who post titles like that.
No people don't want to research, they are lazy. They want to present it here and have everyone else do it for them and then get their silly stars
and flags....which people should really stop striving for, it should be the quality of the thread not how many damn stars and flags you can get.
The biggest annoyance for me is people who post this catchy title and then their OP is a couple lines and a link, with NO external quotes from the
article and nothing about what their thread is really about. I can't remember which one but I opened one the other day and it was literally something
like, "Wow I can't believe this." and a few other lines and I was like WTH are you talking about yet it was flagged and had 3 pages. I couldnt
I get your rant believe me I do!!
I have been thinking the same thing lately. I didn't have my computer for a month and when I got back on I noticed this had not changed. People say
it is because school is out and I do not believe that because it was like this before when school was in. ATS has become more and more popular which
means more members signing up daily which also means more morons signing up daily...I have just learned to ignore them. If it's a good thread idea I
will subscribe and get to it at another time but mostly if I open a thread and it's one you have described I go right back to recent posts.
S&F for you because I liked your rant
