Hi, youve all seen it before i dont need to bring up the threads

`mothership over peru`

pryamid ufo heading for earth`

`massive earthquake excpected on x date because youtuber said so..

etc, all what happens is the threads get about 50 flags and 20 pages of dribble untill the next thread comes around.

I know people have made threads complaining about things like it before, but nothing is done.
So maybe if we get rid of the posters who knowingly make exagurated thread titles etc, that would stop it!

Thanks and a happy new year

It's a way of getting attention to the thread. It's like guano, it happens.

Stop whining
Just because you're jealous of other people's stars and flags.

So you need banning your self then..

Its OFFICIAL - we're at war with Iran - isnt official
Crystal Clear UFO pics must see - not so clear

And now you need banning(in your eyes) because you have over exaggerated the problem of exaggerated thread titles

Isn't that the whole idea of this site? So anyone from anywhere can contribute ideas and events that wont really be discussed or hot topic somewhere else. Maybe there is a reason that these so called outlandish threads have 50 stars and flags...and yours don't.

You forgot one... "exagurated"....
We don't need thread police from members...that's why we have mods.

Headlines are typically "exaggerated." This is how news papers, blogs, and magazines get people to read their articles. The fact that you're complaining about it merely means you've fallen for it. No one is going to advocate the reparation of something that works.
"If ain't broke, don't fix it."

Hmm you all make good points but i do feel the ones about ````pyramid ufo heading to earth`` should be closed

Perhaps... I would also claim that ignorant, mindless dribble, such as the following threads, should not be allowed on ATS either.
Strictly intended to discredit another thread
Completely Pointless!
Exaggerated, Misleading Title... By You!
Another Misleading Title
I'm Lost for Words...

You better check yourself before you start throwing accusations around...

I wish everybody on this thread would stop pointing out that the OP is predjudiced about themselves.

Clearly we should be helping them to see the error in their ways.
