its all just sensationalist crap - and people lap it up
are they really so stupid that they fall for it every time - or are some doing it for the lulz ?
Well not everyone agrees that everything should go to the hoax bin
Sensationalism is what people go for... Make a thread on something with a scientific title and boring reports and it will flop... ad a little
sensationalism like the main stream news media does and you have a hot thread to get your point across and give the skeptics something to rant
A scientifically accurate thread will die a quick death here because you can't make a "Hey cool thread" post and there is nothing to debunk so
there is no activity
But seriously who cares about stars anyway? You can't spend them on anything and many that were top posters have just vanished and all their stats
went poof... So who care about stars really?
Aren't we here to share what we believe while ATS gets rich on our sweat?
I got an idea... instead of lurking in threads you don't agree with, make some of your own good ones and you too can collect some stars
