If this warrants banning me, by all means.

First thread and probably last. excuse the forum placement. No idea what the hell im doing. Well I FEEL like an alien, and youl read why.

I dont trust msm, and I wanted real-time updates of what is going on, unfiltered, str8 from eyewitness accounts. Hello, glp. Practically live. Oh wait- total quack factory. Looney ass tunes made daffy look like einstein.

I came here. Greeted warmly, as my charming and witty intro gave me that appealing new car smell. I guess.

I see now how much this is like high school. Valid, or otherwise brilliant points are ignored unless poster has big green numbers under their avatar. Not just me (please), obviously, and I keep reading references to 'people who count'. I figured mods, but no, the reference always pointed to people with big numbers. Really? Not a big deal, actually, as I managed across a couple of brilliant posts, and it seemed to outweigh the jackassery of long time members who seemed cultur3d responding only to the high score keepers.

Then I started noticing what I feared-ev3n what seemed at first to be intelligent, like minded christians had some backwards ass philosophy based solely on the desire to stand out, as if theyve died and seen the other side.

Im not trying to burn bridges here; im sur3 i am though. I guess its one thing to not fit in anywhere, but the cold shoulders and pr3tentious assholes were enough for me. Im better than that; if i want profound, soul searching wisdom to be ignored, ill hav3 kids.

Well, have fun ripping in to me. My mention of simple, Christian based faith should make it easy.

Am I whining? Yes, I know. Guess Im venting how I truly feel to a faceless firing squad int3ntionally. Damn though, 80% of you are rude as hell, and act like you have masters degrees in LIFE. Whatever happened to 'the more i learn, the less i realize i know?'

Maybe i expected too much. That being what everyone said about this place, and i knew better.

You see, i actually have a security clearance. Orange. That, and myriad badass personal stories of supernatural collisions with a portion of the fringe this website advertises. I didnt intend on rattling about it to a cold, unresponsive, know it all wall, however, and im about to pat myself on the back for biting my tongue.

W3ll, im done crying, but if i didnt get all that of my chest, i would have ripped out my beautiful hair.
Btw, ignore the 3's you see in place of e's. Im not being trendy; my tablet is messed up and frankly, i dont feel like a perfectonist today.

So theres my rant, my ATS-themed social suicide.

Maybe im being hasty; ive been here less than a week. Theres certainly more civility here than yt
, or glp

In summary, talking about astral projections, religious conspiracy, ascension, politics and every other epic concept relating to man's evolution of conciousness throughout this obvious change our world and it's inhabitants is only fun with rapor. So far, my contributing wiles ar3 met with apathy, haughty taughty road scholars and flat out
prix. Maybe i just need more stars?

I am content with plan 'A', and merely reading, but I have too much to offer. Says the guy who bitched for 20 minutes about courtesy on an anonymus fringe forum.
Well, my first thread. *beams with self-appreciation* How'd I do?

Many people are sceptical of everyone, Then theirs the disinformation agents, and finally the lovely trolls... Try to establish a good filter at ignoring blatant trolling at times and it can help.

As to your words to do with earth's apparent changes and your orange clearance I find this intriguing. Having been aware "to some degree" of the groups that oppress humanity "NWO, Illuminati blah blah" Im always searching for more information and also screening things for bull# and disinfo "Which is quite difficult these days". I keep discovering more people talking in-depth about earth and our 4th dimensional transition. I find all of these concepts very intriguing but what I find most intriguing is the shear volume of people discussing this topic all over the world in slightly similar forms. I cannot dismiss this.

I would like to discuss these topics
From a standpoint of intrigue, not ignorant ridicule

Interesting rant, what's with the colors, do I have a color? But then I don't give a crap how one is rated, but then I am just me, like you an individual. Just plant seeds, if a like minded one takes a germ of wisdom and grows, you win I suppose. You from the christian side and me from the spiritual all the same.

Well off to see what those colors are all about, perhaps I don't exist, and even perhaps I will find I don't even read the important posts after all. I didn't know this was an ego trip.

Threewhiteeyes,

Nice rant.


As you said yourself, you might be a little hasty. There are many points that I see differently than you concerning ATS. Doesn't mean any of us are right or wrong, just different perceptions.

Stars and Flags are a blessing and a nuisance. A blessing in the sense that it is nice to see them as rewards when one has spent a lot of time and energy in constructing a well entertaining thread. A blessing when a member gives a well researched reply with links and a sense of passion. A nuisance as some trolls enjoy flagfests. Stars are a nuisance in the sense that 'groupies' star each other left and right even if the replies are nonsensical. But it's just the way it is.

You find that 80% of the membership is rude. I find that 95% of the membership is nice and 5% are rude. And I tend to ignore that 5%. Most of the time, they don't even warrant a reply.

Youtube and GLP are free for all circuses. To compare them with ATS is like comparing Caviar to McDonald's chicken nuggets....


I've been around a little while now and I see one thing very clearly. ATS is what one makes of it. It can be the best forum out there or the worst nightmare out there. It's all a matter of how one perceives it and how one decides to contribute.

Give yourself time to appreciate the good side.

I was gonna finish reading your rant but noticed you don't have enough green numbers to your name


Only joking buddy...honestly there are a lot of nut jobs on the site (myself included) but what's nice about it is I think a lot of people make their avatars, get a reputation, make friends (and enemies) here and pay more attention to what they post here because of it. I think for a lot of people being a member here means something to them.

If you leave, it'll just be another "this site and you people suck!" thread and no one will remember it tomorrow anyway. If you stay you'll probably read some interesting things at the very least

Give it some time OP. It can feel harsh when you are new, but it isn't that way really. I agree with SonoftheSun, about the percentages, 95% nice and 5% not. Love your comment about "New Car Smell". Stick around, it grows on you, like fungi

I agree with you 100%. Sometimes when you spend time putting a thread together or replying to a post and are torn down the minute you post it, it can be very discouraging. I think that there are some people here who just WANT an argument. I don't understand why it is so hard for some members to be polite and use manners. I don't care who they are, if they are rude, I have lost any respect I may have had for them. There are a lot of times when I don't agree with something someone has posted and yet I can still remain civil and polite. I just look at it like a little lesson, sometimes we meet people and just hit it off automatically, sometimes it takes a little longer to warm up to a person and sometimes you just know that there is no way that you would ever be friends with that inconsiderate derf wad. Same lesson applies here. Yes, there are derf wads here...but there are also a lot of really nice people who share your interests. Maybe the motto should be Deny The Derf Wads!

Heheh...I had just starred you somewhere else...even though your numbers are poor (joking that last part)


I don't let "numbers" sway who I S&F.

I do, however, sometimes, if I've started to read a post that sounds somewhat intriguing, but isn't making much sense, and is very loooong...then I peeky at the numbers to decide if I want to muddle ahead thru the murk.

Very well said.

It's unfortunate that you cant say hello without someone calling you an idiot or trying to debunk your hello. lol

Sorry mate, i think most of the people on here are kids. There are a good many here though that are very decent people. They dont say much unless you're speaking about something they're interested in. Hope you find them. I've been on the edge of bailing myself, often, due to the pain in the asses here.. But some good people here like Corp, Know, Druid and many I dont mention are worth hanging around.

great post and dont worry we have probably all experienced what you described in your OP

i would never think of ATS as a cohesive like minded christians, i guess we all have our own purpose for being here
you may notice a trend for which avatars are posting in which threads and forums
hopefully you can get used to the egos on ATS and get past those who are only looking for hi points
there is still a lot of good out here, and very intelligent people

i enjoyed your line whatever happened to people knowing more made them realize less

Makes sense, there are a lot of people on here who think they know everything and aren't open to hearing new information. There are Christian extremists and Atheist extremists who don't tolerate each other very well, the occasional delusional person, and people who will enter a forum, toss in a negative opinion without any basis, and leave.

There are also people who contribute something, who, even if they are critical, base it on facts and logic instead of emotion. There are also people who contribute what they can, be it support or a personal opinion or story, because they might not know enough about the subject but still want to participate.

Overall, I just ignore the people who don't add anything constructive to a thread and there are usually a decent amount of people who are trying to be constructive, so threads I write or threads I read have an impact.

I would like to see more novel substance on the site, though, every once in a while someone researches something and writes a report about it, and those are very cool.

I think you should stay on ATS, you seem like a grounded, logical person who would contribute and be appreciated.

Star and Flag,

Thanks for blasting it out and saving others the time.

You are in the right place, don't worry. The folks you are looking for are here, there has just been a run lately on obstinacy and banality.

The folks I hang with are certain that we have more to learn than we know and so we gang up on topics as we believe that more brains is better than one.

I hope that you will stick around. Ignore the monkeys and just go on with your bad self. Start posting threads on what you have to offer and watch what happens.

Please be sure to U2U me so I don't miss them.

X.

Uhm... welcome to the world of internet forums?

Where the trolls are free to roam... all the live long day...

I wouldn't worry about stars and flags honestly... they mean nothng, and they're just for fun.

And i agree with a few other replies as well...

Quit being so damn sensitive...


Why do you care what others think?

See, I trust MSM (if it wasn't trustworthy, it'd be the fringe news sites after all) but I agree with your OP.

Hell, post your experiences anyway, I'd be interested in them. Just let me know where they are cause I love reading stuff like you hinted at.
