I think I am not understanding a discussion board. I come here to discuss, not to be right. All people can disagree with me and it's no problem. I love the discussion and diverse perspectives. But I'm not okay with people being disrespectful to others. So I just do not engage in it, because there is no need to say something in a room full of people with their ears plugged.

I *think* that's what the OP was trying to say, is that there are a LOT of us lurking who potentially have much to offer to the discussion or who want to hear what others may have to say...but the general disrespect makes it not worth the effort. There are many people reading who are turned off from the discussion because of the harshness being shown.

If there is a desire to have people with more common sense, or who are more respectful then it has to be shown here. The more harsh, condescending posts that show then the more of those type of people will want to respond because the rest of us would rather just be quiet than bother at all. Is that making sense?

(Btw, your post made me laugh - I do appreciate your honesty, and you do have a good sense of humor
)


Thank you.

The thing about all this is that it's open.It's free.
So ,when you post something,you are basically opening up your soul to others to examine and criticize.
Some forums on here are more open to things then others.Choose wisely.Research is your friend in space,technology and such forums.But there are other avenues to use to get your message across here.
My main message here is choose wisely!Check yourself!There are theorists and pseudo scientists on here, and those who pretend or think they are,much like myself,so choose what side you want to represent.
Not being harsh in any way,just being honest and up front.
Smileys

Peace

It is predicted that they already have painted the lines , and they will paint colors later.

They predict what they are going to do in future.

Prophets used to predict things in the last time , then they would say the true massage from God. The result was guidance.

These new fake prophets , predict the fact that is going to happen by their other hands. and the result is foolishness.

Maybe people would stop making fun of you guys if you stopped bombing this site with ELENIN!!!!!! and NIBIRU!!!!!!!!!!! threads its getting real old. Everyday theres like 900 more posts about this nonsense always in caps always claiming to have proof, when all you have is "predictions" and grainy pictures. Even if there is a giant comet with all of our names on it, what do all your posts mean when we are all dead? They mean the same thing they do right now, nothing.

I love how the OP has neatly tied "Any Conspiracy" such as the JFK Assassination, to Elenin/2012 - when this is clearly about attacks on the Elenin/2012 threads specifically.

The fact of the matter is people are attacking these threads because no matter how many times they have been respectfully debunked, they just keep coming back, and patients is lost.

IMO, these people shouldn't be 'blamed' for your silence OP, they should be commended. Sometimes it takes a little brashness to clear the air of stupid - and shame on the OP for suggesting we should allow ignorance to blossom freely on a site which aims to deny it.

You claim that by discouraging those whom would post false and fantastical theories with no basis in reality is hurting our ability to shed light on truth? Really? (insert facepalm)

some snarky reply, being sarcastic


That's a two way street friend, those claiming extraordinary things require evidence. i agree, the trolling isn't helpful, but again, it's a two way street. For every poster who says "elenin aligned with my subaru and now it does 600mph" there are at least 3 posts from the other side along the lines of "shut up you are a sheep"

Plenty of us debunk these claims with evidence, and are met with harassment and then claims of harassment by us against them. Seriously, this happened to me, in a thread on some random conspiracy I posted information, facts mind you not opinion, and disproved whatever the theory was, and was informed that posting contrary (factual) information is a form of ridicule.

Lets remember something, this site isn't here to post your theory and have everyone agree with you. It's a debate forum, if you don't want opposing views, don't post here.

BOTH sides need to be more polite. Proving your theory wrong isn't "putting it down". And the fact remains when it comes to elenin, it's all complete crap and we've posted the FACTUAL evidence in every damn thread, but it is ignored because we work for the reptilian NASA andromedan time travelling witch doctors.

I refuse your request for me to stand down. If you are encouraging fear in something that is not real i will call you on it. It is not some game messing with people emotions like that.

ELENIN is not a real threat, why should i not say that? Its only fair that since you get to say it is, we get to say it is not. Deal with it.

it is at least slightly ironic that reading this thread offers many fine examples of exactly what the OP was talking about
now i'm not saying that terrible pseudoscience should not be dispelled summarily
and i'm not saying that we necessarily have even the slightest inkling of how the universe really works
but there is no need for hostility
surely presenting your point rationally and with respect is going to give you better results anyway

Well why do people with nothing to add and that can't have a decent conversation with the topic STILL POST?

Like me for instance, I don't care for 911 threads anymore!!!! I know it's a scam, what else is there to say? You want to know how I feel about people that believe 911 is not an inside job? DO YOU REALLY WANT TO KNOW?!

lol, I'll be banned

So why, should I spread hate on 911 threads? No f'reason

I am 100% with the OP, he is right all the way. I have refrained myself to either start threads or respond to some because I know what will happen. We are gonna have every type of ATS clowns possible to come haunt the thread and act like smart asses.
Chain thread debunkers, Sheep Calmers, Trolls, disrespect, boasting with negative comments, it never ends.
It's like a grade school here!!

So what the OP wants to say : If you got nothing good to add, just don't say anything.
This doesn't mean we don't want smart debunkers with proof and respect.

Just forget your ego a bit more while you post and act like you are here to make this world a better place.

That is very true!

Yes but all you do, is constant chain thread debunking. You believe in NOOOOTHING.
You wouldn't believe in the tooth fairy if you woke up in the morning with a tooth missing in your mouth and 20 bucks under your pillow.
You wouldn't believe in reptilians even if they took you underground for Thanksgiving weekend and leaving you a farewell souvenir Reptile statuette for your living room.
You wouldn't believe the NASA is lying to you if they told you the earth was flat.

Ok I am exaggerating a bit! ^^
But what I mean to say is, like some are too inclined to believe in everything, you are inclined to believe in no conspiracy at all. And I'm sorry to say this, but your position makes your "facts" while debunking not very valuable IMO.

There have been a gagillion post with evidence and counter evidence yet ELEnin believers keep posting doom and gloom threads about ELEnin.. stop posting nonsense, and we'll stop responding with common sense.


YOU are the reason we are a blind society, afraid to question mainstream media and social norms. By putting down those willing to throw ideas (absolutely insane or not) you are creating a NEGATIVE ENVIRONMENT for those that wish to push the boundries of society and reality.

Nobodies holding a gun to your head telling you to stop investigating. If you, or any other believers, find concrete evidence that has no counter evidence debunking the theory.. please let me know. Until then STOP POSTING THE SAME STUPID EVIDENCE OVER AND OVER

Unfortunately, not everyone has a thick skin like you. I'm sure people thought Einstein or Nikola Tesla were crazy with their theories, but they persevered and brought us the greatest scientific discoveries of man kind.

My point is, not every has "thick skin". Why should we put down someone expressing an idea on this forum? ANY idea. By doing that, we are no better than "TPTB" that try and keep us blind our whole life.

As I posted before, I use Elenin as an exampled because its so prevalent in our forums right now. I get annoyed when I see 2938298329 posts as well, factual or not, however, THIS post is about ANY conspiracy/scientific/off the wall theory or post that anyone posts. There's always that guy that posts a snide one liner, sarcastic comment, underhandedly calling the person a moron.

This is what I find unacceptable in a forum where we should allow open conversation, without the fear of being ridiculed. You honestly think its wrong for someone to post their honest beliefs, with their facts, that our moon is made of cheese? Serious question here.

It has nothing to do with you "standing down" or "defending your belief". It has to do with having respect for people who throw ridiculous ideas out there. Who have the balls to post their theories and beliefs, no matter how ludicrous it is. Who are we to call them idiots in a one lined response?

If you have something to argue, argue it factually. If you dont, keep your one lined, sarcastic, psychologically damaging comments to yourself. This person has stepped out of their shell to express something that is not of a social norm, we should allow that. Thats our goal in this community, is it not? To allow freedom to express, and to deny ignorance?

The example I give is on a very radical scale because I say they can post anything insane, but it still holds true.

P.S. Not that I'm jumping on the Elenin band wagon, but I'm sorry, you dont know anything about Elenin. None of us do. You know what you are told by NASA, you know what you think you see from your home made telescope. That's all you know. How can you make such a statement "Elenin is no threat", when you have nothing but other people's proof? Nothing first hand? You don't know.

You're missing the point here. Whether you believe it or not, your comments on someones thread, may have an impact on the OP. Whether they realize it or not, your one lined sarcastic comment that puts down their belief system, whether true or not, will affect their probability of posting again.

And the reason for this post is, who are you to put someone else down in such a way? To stifle someones creativity and imagination? Provide evidence of your stance on the subject, and move on. Sarcastic, idiotic one liners serve no purpose other than to be harmful.

Lol you obviously haven't read most of what I post. You honestly just said my "FACTS" are less valuable because I have the NERVE to know what the hell I'm talking about? your position makes you a joke, you understand that right? you are a complete joke, you don't want answers, you want people to believe in your crap, and when they don't, you start crying like you did in another thread (on baseless accusations I might add)

I'm here for truth, not hyperbole. you present a theory, it's just that, until it's proven one way or the other. I do believe, honestly, you are here for the wrong reasons and someone already mentioned a similar site that might fit you better.

Just because I'm not half literate, understand science, and am interested, doesn't give you the right to complain. I'm not here to believe, i'm here to KNOW. Get, the hell, over, IT

I wouldn't be here if I didn't believe in conspiracies, I do, 911 for example, JFK for example, the war on terror, the war on drugs, wako, ruby ridge, you know, ACTUAL CONSPIRACIES.

I really don't care if you like my "facts" or not, they are "facts" none the less and no amount of character assassination will change the "facts" into ridiculous theories.

Well, I am probably speaking for myself.. but I don't want creativity. I want reasonable doubt, or suspicion.. after all this is a conspiracy site, not a fantasy star wars site. I do, in a way, see what you're getting at.. but I think there's a fine line between creativity and conspiracy.

What silence?


Very simply put:

When you express your idea with what you think is evidence, and some troll comes along and gives a rude one liner, calling you a moron (which I see several times, daily, on this forum).

All of a sudden, without entering an argument and two sides presenting evidence, you now feel like your idea was stupid. Where it was, or it wasn't, you're less likely to go "out there" and post what you think to be true. You are silenced, because someone didn't have the common decency to either keep their mouth shut because they have no evidence, or present some in a civil way.

I think we all forget that there is someone else on the other side of these monitors when we reply to threads. Treat people and radical posts such as "ELENIN IS NIBIRU" or "THE MOON IS MADE OF CHEESE I HAVE PROOF" with some respect. Either rebutt with evidence, post your own beliefs in a civil way, or don't post at all. You have no right to stifle someones imagination or creativity. "TPTB" have done that to us enough.
