Is it because every third thread tells you that you are going to die/ shtf? Or is it the general atmosphere of 'panic!' that seems to be spreading?
I agree, feels more like some general chatroom than a place to make civilized chatter with like-minded people. But it makes for good entertainment,
I'll give it that.
For me, it's neither. It's the seeming lack of intelligence by some and lack of open mindedness from others.
I guess I've got bored.
My hunger for knowledge has declined a lot because lately it's all about how "9/11 wasn't the fault of terrorists, you're an idiot to think
otherwise" or "Elenin will kill us all" or "all police must die".
Overwhelming evidence against those things and still people believe in that crap and more.
It honestly feels like being on ATS now and reading stuff like that is not only sapping my own IQ and intelligence but also proving to me that the
people with their eyes wide open to the way the world works are the people who ATS members constantly insult for not being members here
and for dealing with their crappy lives with hard work and earning money rather than posting countless ridiculous theories on a conspiracy forum for
hours a day.
It's like, no offense to anybody here because a lot of you seem like really nice people that I'd otherwise get on with but outside of the music
section of ATS, I feel like I'm the most intelligent person here and it feels wrong.
I liked being in awe of the research and effort by the likes of ProtoplasmicTraveler or Zorgon who posted things that were not only true and realistic
but great reads and informative.
There was a guy who posted his girlfriend's dreams in January called Condemned followed by several numbers. He seemed awesome too but he
I liked reading Dreams & Personal Predictions, The Gray Area, General Conspiracies, Predictions & Prophecies, Music and Movies.
Other than the latter two, I can't bring myself to get excited at reading the others any more because the majority is just crap. Deplume's thread
about the weird sounds no one could figure out the source too was the last great thread I read on ATS. Before that, it was Proto's that got him
banned, before that Zorgon's Naval Space Command, before that way too many to even remember right now.
It's not the fault of Bill or some of the other staff here either, it's just my boredom threshold has reached its limit and unfortunately, ATS is
more of a chore filled with weird and crazy BS than an enjoyable forum to excitedly read for hours at a time when you have the time to allow it.
