So here's a question then. I have been here for a short time posting. And I can tell you that I have had more then few posts taken down. All because
of redundancy. And an hour later I see the same story I posted (not exactly) but about the same subject. So ATS has taken down my post and allowed
someone else after me post about the same subject. I didn't know that ATS was a writing competition.
What I personally don't understand. Is if I post a thread about the same information and my opinion or take on it is from a different angle. Why is
it taken down? I have seen "Ron Paul can't win" posted a million times on here and it is extremely redundant. Yet it is allowed.
I honestly think it's ridiculous that members are policing the site and have free reign to choose whether a post stays or goes. Because I can post
the same thing someone else does with different information and poof post is gone.
I have had an article taken off here because someone didn't like what I had to say. Told me to GTFO ten minutes later. The post was gone.
To me it's a forum. I have a life outside of here and I can take it or leave it. I think most of the time the stories on the forum are entertaining
to say the least.
I've lurked for a long time but just recently started posting. ATS is a tough place to put your news, because of the clickiness of the posters and
I truly believed this site was about sharing information with others to get the truth out there. No matter how silly or stupid. In my opinion they
censor like the rest of the world does. So a conspiracy site that censors it's posters are no better than Fox, CNN or any other MSM clown outfit and
is now a conspiracy in itself
But isn't this really about spreading the word about the indecent behaviors and down right outrages behavior in the world around us no matter what
So you can beat me up for speaking my mind, Ban me whatever ATS does for talking about them or their moderators. But I think the control that they
have laid down on the people that make the site what it is, is in fact counter productive.
