So I've been creepin' around on this site for a while now, joined up not to long ago, and now that I've actually been partaking in the discussions
I've noticed that our Mods don't debate with each other all that often. They post comments and participate, I'm not complaining about that. I'm just
wondering if there's ever going to be a "Clash of the Mods"? Now please don't get me wrong, I'm not criticizing the jobs the mods do nor do i think i
could do what they do (I'm not even that computer savvy). I don't have delusions of grandeur.
Anywho, thats not my rant, this is:
Some topics of recent discussion have been pretty heated and we ATSers go back and forth arguing with each other until our heads explode.
I can't stand when people just reiterate and regurgitate the same argument over and over, it's counter productive, there's all sorts of informative
threads on this site but they're all overcast by these, what i like to call, "retard threads." HOLD ON. Before you think, "oh this a-hole is just
spewing hate about this site and its people," what I mean by "retard" is that these threads "retard" our productive thinking. Instead of researching
topics of scientific value we get caught up in debating a topic that makes people angry with each other. These topics don't help us as a whole.
What i originally gathered from this site was that it was where people would ask questions or present evidence to prove/disprove a relevant topic and
then there was an opportunity for others to have a voice and ask questions to those "in the know" or state their side of the topic in a relatively
peaceful but inquisitive manner.
What it seems is happening now is ATSers are just trying to provoke other ATSers into arguments that go absolutely no where when these people could be
lending their knowledge elsewhere and possibly helping others.
But who knows maybe I'm wrong.
That being said i will keep frequenting this site because there are still those here on the quest for knowledge
