I would love nothing more than a forum to debunk all these armchair prophets and the "prophesies" they fill up the ATS site with. Wow just think when ELENIN comes and goes we will have nothing meaningless to fill this site with until 2012! Oh who am I kidding? Anyhow the reason I wrote this post is in regards to the "prophet" that last night promised us all AT LEAST a 6.4 mag EQ today! Well, sir I ask you: Where is my earthquake? Can ATS PLEASE make a forum to be able to possibly hold these people accountable for thier prophesies in hopes of maybe cutting down on these needless waste of space threads?

Well, I thought the rule was if you post 3 hoax threads you were banned. So I guess after all this blows over and the world is safe they would be banned?
If not then you won't be able to tell them you were wrong...

I don't understand why people
want to get rid of and dictate
what other people are interested
in. I don't go to topics that don't
interest me, we have many choices
at ATS to not go to a topic that we
don't like or that annoys us.

Go to the topics that you are interested
in, have a good attitude and get into
the discussion. Why start a thread that
is negative to discredit people, very
negative IMO.

Because without naming this prophet that is at issue he was spouting off negatively about everybody else on this site! Search for the thread in question I will not post it out of respect but you may have a different view?
edit on 24-9-2011 by AllUrChips because: (no reason given)

this is the second thread asking for something of this nature...

I'll reply to this thread as I replied to the last thread on this issue...

A new thread for "busted armchair prophets" would be redundant and unnecessary...there is a HOAX bin...which more than qualifies to handle "busted armchair prophets"

But wouldnt a hoax be different than a prediction?

This site does not need, or condone, a specific forum for the bashing of other members.

T&C is your friend.....

I hate prophecy threads. There have been no human prophets that were accurate in the past so why would there be any now?

I'm with you. It would be nice to have a record or archive of BS prophets.

Simple: Sensationalism sells. It generates page views, which generate ad dollars, which keep ATS staff eating caviar and riding in hoverSUVs.

Well,then- you have certainly described what seems to be either an ignorance of the rules of this site, or a direct defiance of them.


Which one is it?

You tell me son? Lets try to stay on topic (or are you violating the T&C rules?)

The entire purpose of your thread, and what you are asking for, is at the very core of the T&C. You wish to have an "I told you so" forum, which would be nothing more and nothing less than a personal attack frenzy.

If you cannot see that, I am sorry. I will waste no more time attempting to explain it to you.
