1) Exclamation marks do not help bring visitors to your thread. You could probably drop at least 10 of those, if not all of them. It makes it appear
as if you're "reaching" for clicks, as opposed to letting a well-provided title do that work for you. I understand you didn't create the title, as
the source did. However, if exclamation points were the secret to gathering readers, I'm pretty sure the media would be using them. There's a reason
they are not: they're extremely annoying.
2) Screaming derogatory, censored curse words in caps doesn't help you get your point across either. I understand you're frustrated, but instead of
losing your grip, I suggest providing insight and suggestions rather than becoming angry and yelling. You'd be surprised at how people are willing to
open up and speak when they feel like they're having an actual discussion, rather than tempting a raving lunatic.
3) There's a plethora of information right here on ATS regarding this exact subject. Try including a bit of additional information, along with
sources to help further back your opinion on the matter. It gives readers a chance to become familiar with the topic, along with your own personal
stance, which in turn leads to reason for discussion. This can only help the success of your threads in the long run. As an example, I will provide
some links to topics that are related to this discussion:
GM Sweet Corn hits Grocery Stores
Companites that use GM crops
Information on GM foods
More Info on GM foods
GM foods as Population Control?
Plus over 1,000 more. Just a simple ATS search for "GM Food" yields 1,110 results.
I agree entirely with the idea behind this thread, and look forward to discussing it further with you and anybody else who comes along for the ride. I
hope I've been able to help you out a bit with the success of this thread, and any you decide to make in the future.
