I've only been a member for a couple months, but I've been a lurker for the past two years. I've noticed a trend that has become, and continues to
become increasingly worse as time goes by. Posts are becoming more biased, more hateful, more antagonistic. They are becoming less insightful, less
meaningful, and even less logical (more derived from negative emotions).
I've loved alternative news for as long as I can remember. I've really enjoyed ATS since the first day I stumbled upon it. I usually habitually
check out the new topics everyday. But I'm beginning to dread it every time I get on here. We complain about the wars going on in the world, and talk
about how simple and easy it would be if we kicked ignorance to the curb and became "vessels of peace." We discuss these things in the very place
that we've started our own war.
Every time I get on ats to see what's going on in the world I feel as though I'm entering a war zone. The motto here is to "deny ignorance" is it
not? That's what I thought
it was last time I checked. Last time I checked the motto wasn't "Attack one another for their personal beliefs
and points of view. Antagonize each other by writing utterly hateful posts directed toward a persons beliefs and even their gender."
What the hell everybody?!
I'm noticing that literally everyday, it get's worse. Can we please put petty bs to rest and get on with what this site is really about?
