Even ATS has an elite posting class


You mean people who enter into discussions, don't post meaningless one liners, create threads with substance having studied the topic and read the threads? That who you mean?

It's like life. You participate fully it can be wonderful, you lay back and vegetate it's depressing. You get back what you put in. I'm so so and I get so so back. I'm not in denial nor do I blame others for my failings. The people who participate the most get the most out of ATS. That's as it should be.

It's not an elite posting class. And I wasn't trying to make it sound that way. But those who do have the gold and silver boarders are the ones who usually post some of the best material.

I will be the first to admit though, there are way too many well deserving threads which go unnoticed. I didn't mean it to sound like they were elite. I was trying to point out that even the more established members here have some who act towards them in the same manner the OP was talking about since he was way newer.

An excellent rant! I have posted some responses to threads in ATS and even posted a couple of threads of my own but never really engaged in any other chat apart from that. I read what I like based on the topics that interest me at the time not necessarily what is popular or front page stuff. I'm sure there are no shortage of genuinely lovely, engaging people on here just as there are a remarkable volume of sarcastic, rude and arrogant folk. So pretty much the same as real life. Have fun sifting through it all.

I do the same as many. I come on and read whatever peeks my fancy. If I feel the urge to post, I post. I star posts that intrigue me, catch my attention, make me laugh, make me think. I may not agree to all that they say but at some point in their recetation, for lack of better word or if even a word lol, that affects me in some way shape or form. Keep up your posts and threads, whenever at least one person flags, stars, or comments, you said something that affected them also.

I don't know it all. There are some things I know and some things I don't know. I have my opinions and beliefs and my hang ups just like everybody else.

If you claim something, I want to see the real evidence, not just scant evidence that would have another more appropriate or natural explanation for it.

And I do know a few things about the tricks and traps die hard believers love to pull.

Such as artificially inflating the numbers to make it seem that their fringe belief is actually a mainstream belief. Just because it may be supported by millions of people doesn't make it a true mainstream belief. Millions of people may seem like a lot but when you do the actual math, two or three million people or so are less than one percent of the population of America, with roughly 313,412,000 people.

A good example of this is whenever anyone changes their minds on global warming, all of a sudden it becomes "SEE! ALL SCIENTISTS WILL COME TO BE LIKE THIS!" which is utter nonsense. A few people change their minds does not mean they represent everybody.

And when I am no expert I will tend to go with what real experts say. But just because you have a PhD. it doesn't really mean you're an expert. There are PhDs who believe that steel can't weaken when under the influence of a great deal of heat, but they are no metallurgist.

When no experts agree I will go with my own conclusions Heck, even when they do agree I will sometimes go with my own conclusions, but I base my conclusion on what the evidence says, not what I don't want to or want to believe..

But that's just me.

I think for myself, and that will always make me unpopular and the underdog. Because people will ALWAYS expect me to somehow tow the party line, whatever party I'm associating with at the time.

But then, A real man goes his own way and thinks for himself.

We must always forge our own paths through the forests and the deserts out there, and we must always learn to rely on ourselves.

That is the true spirit of individuality. You think for yourself and go your own way and to hell with conformity.

No matter what group you're part of, never conform, never retreat, never surrender. Always go your own way. Always question the party line, it is always misleading in some way.

god i wish i knew it all
i get highly frustrated though when i see well thought out and researchered threads go un noticed and silly one line or bare minimum posts get all the attention makes me
sometimes.

Us chilled folks are here, i wouldn't call us elitists though, we just happened to stumble across each other on the boards and in chat and clashed horns in threads and such lol. BTS is a good place to go and get away from the insanity at times, im a regular in the rant section and jokes threads lol. just stick at it, we are here shining a little light at the end of the hall *dangles a light*. i promise we wont sacrifice you to the ats gods


i remember when i was relitivly new here i felt like i was on the outside looking in alot of the time coz i like to chat and debate stuff, sometimes u gotta just roll your sleeves up and get stuck in and wade through the rubbish to get to the real gems. or do what i did, i used to u2u people i spoke to on some threads, some will answer some wont but its a good way to get some conversation going.
