If I could run a poll on ATS for this, it would look something like this:

WHY DO YOU POST?

1. I want others to realize my brilliance on any given topic and won't deny the masses by remaining silent
2. I enjoy intellectually slapping people down who post information I deem incorrect
3. I am a fanboy and gosh darn it, people like me.
4. I have so many one liners and so little time
5. I like talking to like minded people
6. I like irritating people that think differently than me
7. ESPN and Porntube are down and I had time to kill

Just some of the types I've noticed, why do you post?

No. 1... Busted. Guilty as charged.
No. 5... But there just ain't that many brilliantly minded people to talk with.

But really, ATS does seem to be very ego driven, and I was just spoofing with that last bit about brilliance, just so all you ego driven brilliance wannabes don't go all haywire on me.

I post because it adds to discussion. I find it hard to talk about conspiracies, UFOs and metaphysics with people in the real world. Most people think you're crazy and life is so much easier when other people dont think your're crazy.

I post because its a community I trust. There are ego problems but the mods do a great job of limiting the explosive childlishness that abounds on all kinds of comment forums.

I really do enjoy having some stimulating conversation, but the instant-no-argument-allowed-naysayers, trolls and people-who-cannot-be-nice-in-conversation irritate me at great length.

I enjoy reading all the different perspectives and replying with my own. Being exposed to so many different points of view can really broaden your own.

I'm thinking there are not many of us limited to one option. You also left out any number of reasons. One of them being it can be diffiicult to let pass the utter garbage one sometimes sees on here. On a good day you can let it go as 'entertainment'. On a bad day....

Usually read more than reply to catch up on events back in "civilisation" - at times reply to posts that find of interest to either add to it or offer an insight on events

Plus I learn stuff.

Oh yeah, and the porn thing.

"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing." (Edmund Burke)

I hope that it helps to speak out against injustice and evil here on this forum. I get very quite passionate about injustice in this world. The PTB would rather this not be the case, and therefore, I speak even more boldly, even more so. Because it bothers them, I'm sure.

I'll add to the list:

11.) I have recently freaking completely lost the plot, and have an incredible desire to express this with ATS

Owwwww...., that feels magical to get off my chest, I've been feeling rather grey today.
