Dear Akragon,

I apologize; but, I am not sure what you are trying to tell me. I was attempting to support the OP and say that I am tired of people being so fake just to get a response. If you were attempting to say that I am my heart, my actions and my intent then I agree. I like what Shakespeare said, I am a man, if you cut me do I not bleed. Yeah, we all bleed and we are all mortal, we are our choices, they define who really are, we are who we choose to be once we stop justifying our actions and take responsibility for our choices. Peace.

The sad thing about those topics is the fact that those people really ARE delusional and won't accept that they need help or medication. I visit a hypnotherapist and am preparing to go get myself certified and we covered this topic just this week. If you tell yourself something for long enough, you start to believe it. If these people tell themselves every day that they're a wizard or an angel, they'll begin to believe it. The subconscious doesn't care what information it takes in because it can't distinguish between fact or fiction.

I understand heavy criticism of that thread. But the OP wasn't directing it solely at that thread...he was directing his rant towards ALL of them. He seemed to suggest that he thinks they are all fake.

I AM...not surprised. Whereas this site is great for knowledge and information...its also "ground-zero" for kooks who want to explain, convince and defend their interpretaion of truth.....and 90% of it is based on Wikipedia, YouTube and Delusions of Granduer. And just plain psychosis.

Thanks goodness for for most part...we can tell the difference.

If you don't like a topic, don't click on the link. To say that certain topics shouldn't be allowed on this forum is an attack on free speech.

And what do you know? How do you KNOW that a couple of them aren't true? Isn't it possible that people come here to leak things? I mean, this site seems like the most logical place to leak controversial material.
Most of them are probably B.S. but isn't it possible that at least one of them is true?

I do agree with you that people shouldn't be flagging a lot of these threads. But you know, if someone writes something truly creative, they probably deserve a flag, even if it isn't true.

Never said it shouldn't be allowed. That's censorship. A big No-No in my books.

BUT...to feed these threads which are clearly a cry for attention or as another put it, a Gubment dis-info ploy, is the issue here.

And yes, some may be true but the ones that state something and then say "Ask Me" are clearly just looking for ammo with which to reply as they know nothing of the actual claim. Let people talk long enough and they will give you what you need kinda thing.

Leak info...ok. Invite people to ask before saying anything? Nope.

Peace

I referenced about 30 of the recent irrationally popular threads in the past 6 months with that string of words. I think I'm in coordination with the OP in that regard.

I caught the references and yes, you are dead on with your post.

Funny as hell also...

The I am A ..... ask me anything. threads are copies of threads from a forum (or rather a group of forums) called reddit, where they have a lot of these threads.

However on reddit you have to provide proof of who you are to the moderators of the site, for example they recently had I am Woody Harrelson ask me anything, that didn't work out too well for poor woody link
although a lot of the ask me anything threads aren't celebrities they would be things like "I am a glass blower ask me anything"

If you have never heard of reddit, it's the 66th most popular web site in the whole of the USA compared to ATS's ranking of 2200 and something

I have never claimed to be the brightest bulb in the chandelier but when a kook comes out begging for a spanking....what can I say, it's reflex! We live in hard times and it is very easy to be lead from proper manners and decorum, just for the chance at a good ol'e guffah!


ETA : I am truly sorry for anyone I may have offended in this way, so in repentance, I willingly offer my arse to you for a good boot! I'm thick skinned anyway.

I agree -HEAR HEAR!, or, HERE HERE, or, HEAR HERE!

I think we should come up with something right here, right now!

If you see in a thread title some outrageous claim, and you know which ones I mean and those of you who start these threads you know who you are...but if you see in a thread title a claim like is mentioned here, "I Am," plus the phrase "Ask Me Anything," I don't think we should click on it unless it's uploaded in the "Short Stories" section.

No one here is Gabriel, Christ, Satan, Santa Claus, Satan Claus, etc.!

In the Gabriel thread I read the response by someone saying, paraphrasing, " It's funny those who claim I am something or another come to ATS to tell the world and not go to a News Organization." How true that is and I'm glad someone said it because I've been thinking that for some time now.

So, all in favor, of not feeding the trolls and not clicking -especially NO FLAGGING THOSE THREADS, then flag me here, flag me now!

And in the future to anyone who is going to make a Thread title with a claim like one of those, I mean, come on man! Do you REALLY think you are the entity you are claiming to be? If so, in a nice way, you may need to seek some help --ask others around you and get their opinion.

And if you're creating those threads for attention, then again I say, come on man! Surely (yes I know, and don't call me Shirley!) there are other, more productive ways in gaining attention --like inventing something that'll earn you a Peace Prize, or getting a promotion at work where everyone notices, or getting a job where everyone says, "Nice job (literally)", or something of the like. Write a poem and make a thread for that, write a song and make a thread for THAT -something besides "I am" and "Ask Me Anything!"

With all that being said: I AM...done. Go ahead -ask me anything!

All I can say is that I'm glad these fads come and go--and I can't wait for most of them to GO.

I think what's most disconcerting to me is what ATS is becoming. The count of crappy, disappointing, bizarre, and downright idiotic threads just keeps climbing. There's very little gold among all the s**t anymore.

On the brighter side: I daresay if you're the owner of the site, and selling ads based on the number of members, it's probably not nearly so bad....
