You can't please all the people all the time. That's a fact. Trash duplicate threads and the member is upset. Don't trash them and others are
upset. To the member that said we deleted "at least 5 of his threads", I checked. Only 1 and it was a duplicate. Others complain that ATS is
Draconian because we enforce the T&C. Well, yeah, we do. What's wrong with keeping civility on the board? The T&C is a contract between the site and
the members. Again, what's wrong with ATS for making certain members adhere to the T&C as they agreed to?
T&C violations. WE get MANY complains about T&C violations and we appreciate it but is it a violation or a difference of opinion? When we get them
they are discussed by the staff. The staff is diverse. We've got people from around the world on the staff. From all ages. And faiths. We have
Christians, Atheists, Buddhists, Agnostics, etc. Same with political bents. When a complaint is discussed there is no bias, every angle is discussed.
That may require time in some cases. If a complaint isn't handled immediately there is probably a heavy discussion going on to get the right
Now to content. If one feels that the content isn't up to one's expectations, create content that is, within the T&C of course. Be the change you
want to see. I know, it's harder than just complaining but try it. You might like it.
Lastly, things on ATS go in cycles. We're in an election cycle so you are going to see a lot of political rubbish. Also 2012 is coming up. While
some, myself included, don't put stock in this many do. So go with the cycle or stick to topics that you do enjoy. That's the best advice I can
