Hi iam 17 year old guy

Ok so i like this site, super cool with all this secrets and stuff .

I also like to share some stuff i researched and experienced on this site , and totally respect people here.

but last night i posted a video on the (New world order)
form about "Obama speaking about the end of the world " it was edited a and really sounded realistic and funny

and last night after posting the video , I received bad comments on my form like "this guy should be Banned".
after 5 min i received 5 private messages that the video was removed because of the complaints of other ATS members.

what the F@#! are you kidding me?

i mean every non Obama supporters would laugh at such a video

i showed it to my brother and he thought it was funny

whats the big deal?

here's the video

was it really that necessary to say "that i should be banned"
and deleted my thread?

i mean thats kinda harsh don't you think?
edit on 8-10-2011 by spacedoubt because: Spelling correction-removed all caps title...That's a no-no

Yes, I saw your thread. The only thing you did was to be a bit misleading in the title of your thread. You should have made it clear that it was a joke and it should have been in the jokes and puns forum. Other than that, it was funny and clever.

There is a lot of serious talk here because it is a prime quality debating site and a rare phenomenon. I think most like the quality, as I do, and it is a very valued site.

Sorry to hear that some were mean to you. Why, I wouldn't even have said anything about the title, but I am a bit more liberal than some about that.

Obviously, it has not worried you because you are still posting so you carry on and keep a thick skin.

Let's begin with the title. ALL CAPS in text or title is an almost certain way to get a negative response regardless of what you are saying. The web is very liberal when it comes to grammar and spelling but it draws the line with caps. Avoid using all caps for more than highlighting/emphasizing a word or two.

Secondly, ATS has its hands more than full trying to keep order here. Considering the subject matter discussed and the diversity of the membership, serious is the only way to approach the matter.

Last, there are a lot of people who take their subject matter seriously. Be it politics (oh my gawd... watch out for politics!) or the end of the world or aliens abducting people, cattle and poodles, this is no laughing matter.

You will generally get respect when you show it and if you don't, you will do yourself a favor in the long run by taking the high road and turning the other cheek... facial or otherwise, lol!

In a clamshell, have fun, speak your mind but don't be thin skinned or too reactionary.

Oh... read the T&C threads when unsure. Better that than step in something that smells bad

I think it probably pissed off a lot of american members. Its a rather creepy video and seems to have been made with a sinister anti american sentiment. Maybe im reading too much into it, but thats what I felt veiwing it.

Sorry, I cannot watch videos from home internet.

But did you clarify that it was not supposed to be serious? Maybe people thought you meant it to be serious.

Sometimes there is too much doom and gloom and people here really do get too wrapped up in it, end up fighting about who is right and who is wrong.

Everyone has their right to their own opinions and instead of skipping and ignoring the thread they troll it instead.

And a little bit of humor on this sight is a breath of fresh air. Just make sure people know it is meant as humor.

In all actually, though being pretty funny, it is hard to tell that this is highly edited and put together. Some would take this seriously, which could mean bad news for the president, you know, like in a very bad way. So his safety is a concern, especially to the Secret Service who monitor all references to the president. I know a person who posted something on Facebook about Obama and got visited by an alphabet agency either that night or the next day. So I wouldn't take it personal. It's just that they are squashing it before something crazy happens. I'm sure you didn't mean anything by it, same as us, but he and his family's safety is as important as our own.

You always have to know how far a joke can go and we just saw the limit.

we aren't always serious...

Yes, As stated by R9, this site is one of the few resources people can go to do productive research on topics that mean a great deal to them, topics that even have considerable effect on their lives. Quality posting protects this valuable resource. There are plenty of places to go on the net (including a jokes forum on this site) where jacking around is tolerated or even encouraged.

In your defense, this is how we all learn what's accepted in different communities, so thanks for taking the initiative to post the video, and please keep contributing.

The theme at this site is to deny ignorance , right? Aren't there enough lies and deception without making a disinfo and misinfo video , that will confuse people ? Would have been acceptable in the jokes forum.

Dang, have to admit though it totally sounds like him and sounds totally real.

I found nothing offensive about this's the end of the old American and the beginning of a NEW AMERICA where WE THE PEOPLE will take back our land, liberty, and freedom. No more groping at the airports! No more bailing out the corrupt banks and corporations (GM moved their plant Brasil with OUR tax dollars)! No more corrupt politicians dictating our laws based on lobbyist bribes! WE THE PEOPLE ARE WAKING UP and you can't take away our Constitution or Bill of Rights...those are tattooed in our blood FOREVER!!!

Don't let the Oprah's or the Michael Moore's influence your with your heart!!! God Bless!!

I saw the thread and video last night, I thought it was funny. It was obvious to me that it was a spoof, but yeah, some people on here are too serious, cant' see things for what they are. Hell, I've seen some people post on here just to argue with people.

Take it all with a grain of salt, and if you're taking any psychology courses, now or in the future - remember this site, there are ALL kinds of people on here, many completely normal, some strange, and some that should probably be committed......

I'm with revolution9 on this futuredude.

If you post threads in the right section no one will get upset at videos like this.
Imagine if I went to a church and started playing edited audio of the pope talking about the end of the world... I don't think those worshipers would be happy about it.

Get it?

You have much to learn grasshoppa! Just be sure to learn to separate fact from fiction, for there's much more fiction than fact!
