So I assume something like this would very clearly and obviously be not allowed?

I will judge whomever I please, you all do it. Religion and immigration is the downfall of my country, believe me. Are u asian? I suspect so. Here in Britain we are fed up with it. In the midlands the council have had to allocate more funding for.. cleaning up your sh##e you dump on the streets. You will be silenced wen i show a video in a few weeks of how immigration is spreading and the effects on normal BRITISH people


But if someone "tidied it up", while still saying essentially the same thing, it'd be okay?

It is odd that you want me not to judge, yet you are judging. Rampant immigration of those with abhorrent cultural practices are bringing down the country, and we grow tired of it. Recently a council had to allocate more funding for clearing up garbage on the streets that these people obviously dumped. I will expound on this soon in a video in a new thread on how foreign immigration is affecting and destroying the common people.


Seems it is going to be just as difficult to enforce anything as it was before
. Especially in discussions about immigration, most people can't HELP but say stuff that is insulting and bigoted towards the "other".

People sometimes have difficulty differentiating between "We don't have the capacity to support such a huge influx of people" vs "These people are evil! They take our jobs, they take our women, and they take advantage of us and our system!".

All I'm going to say is good luck mods, because I wouldn't want to be in your shoes trying to weed out the hatred and the rascism on here.

For what its worth, I feel comfortable enough to share my thoughts, my ethnicity, my religion and whatever else that might matter for the subject at hand, and I don't feel one bit scared that someone might take out the ol' bat and start swinging at me. They may swing as much as they please, but we shall kill them with kindness


Cheers!

Congratulations on a Great idea, I am an old geezer in my 70s and enjoy the intelligent and diverse subjects covered on this site, and it is refreshing to pop on and catch up on all the topics from a bunch of intellectual enteties from around the Globe, however in this shrinking world we are exposed to a plethera of exciting happenings moment by moment, and as the last months tragety in florida a lot of hostility has emerged from cross sections of the populace.

It is a shame to force censorship on anyone, but the end result of a racial divide can only hurt the situation and create more hatred as each ethnic group will divide and try to out do the other partie/s discourse, so there are a lot more interesting subjects to follow without raising any ones blood pressure as the only person injured by hatred is the hater.

Props to Springer and ATS staff for taking action. Hopefully most will heed the warning but unfortunatly there will be some who wont. But hey the site is about denying ignorance. So it's good to see that the MODs are starting to weed out the ignorant amongst us. Good stuff

From what I have observed in the past few weeks.

I think this is the mindset of the general public.

It's crazy.

The world has gone crazy.


No the world is being forced to be globalist and one homogeneous mix instead of enjoying the differences between cultures. When that globalism encroaches on 'tribal' territory you have problems.

I have to say that I am wonderfully isolated from most of this as I tend to stick to the fragile earth threads. As my beloved says when I say I have not heard of some event "Well it wasn't an earthquake so I suppose you would not have."

I will say however that I do find myself, when in other areas of the web making comments, thinking about if what I am about to say would be acceptable on ATS.

I'm really glad to see that there has of late been problems with the site and you are acting upon it. I do think you set your Mods a somewhat herculean task - then again they don't need to be psychologists to instill the rules but I guess it helps lol.

Overall I do feel an effort to sort the wheat from the chaff is well over due and appreciate this prompt.

I love the site as I live mostly on my own with the hubby working away and find that if you look you can find some stimulating conversation here from some intelligent members but my only bug bare (being one of the silver surfers of a certain age) is the need to tolerate what seems to be extremely young members spouting off such utter rubbish and I realize that they too find learning here and that's good - just wish there was some way we could have a Silver Surfer Forum???

The only other thing that gets me really chewed up are those who like to remind you of the ethos 'Deny Ignorance'. Now this is an excellent ethos to hold however, it is more often quoted by those who have just produced the most ignorant of threads and they really can't see it or understand how they are perpetuating such attitudes. Not to worry, that's life.

Good luck - I'm sure you'll do a fair job, there aren't many sites like this and it would be such a shame if it were brought down by those who treat it like a childish chat room.

maybe bringing back the ignore feature, could go someway to improving the situation also. I try to edit my ATS functions so that I can avoid certain areas I have no interest in by removing those forums from the current threads page.

If we had the ignore feature , it would be possible to ignore those who seem to get a reaction from us. At the end of the day ATS is here for your enjoyment, it provides editing possibilities so you can ignore areas your not interested in. The option to ignore certain members would just improve the experience in my opinion.

Originally I never liked the ignore feature, as I wanted to here everyones opinion even if i disagreed wit it. But i find myself getting irate by certain members where I feel compelled to challenge them, when it would be much easier to ignore them

Anyway, just a thought.

Something people need to understand.

Your truth is subjective - but only to you.

Everyones idea of "truth" is different.

If you want to share ideas and discuss them in a civilised manner then fine.

If, however, you simply want to shove them down peoples throats and castigate anyone who doesn't agree with you, then find somewhere else to post.

If you simply want to spread your brand of hatred, find somewhere else to post. You aren't welcome here.

And anyone who felt the need to vehemently defend themselves in the light of Springers OP should really be asking themselves a simple question - why?

I have hardly ever seen racism on ATS just the race card being used like it is going out of style. The word has been used and worn so thin and taken out of context as much as the meaning of terrorism. It seems people are simply brainwashed or indoctrinated in to the "US VS THEM" mind set so much they are forever duped in to projecting ones personal bias instead of discussing the matter and actually seeking the truth of the matter. I see people complaining the right with being sympathetic to treyvon where zimmerman is justified by more conservatives why is that? Yet nobody knows. But racist bigot is used without merit in turn offensive in itself as well as insulting. It is an issue blindly polarized with no grey area ... choose a side or else.

I think it's quite interesting how different people perceive the make up of the ATS membership to be. From my perspective as a liberal democrat, I have always assumed the majority of ATS content is dominated by the right. Yet those on the right perceive the content is dominated by liberals and lefties.

Probably means we are all guilty of confirmation bias.

Confirmation bias (also called confirmatory bias, myside bias or verification bias) is a tendency of people to favor information that confirms their beliefs or hypotheses.[Note 1][1]

Well said, IMO Anyone posting racial hatred should be warned and then banned. There is enough horrible crap out there without ATS members getting involved

I love this idea sir, knowingly Im the last to be considered politically correct in any respect (don't believe in it). Yet Im sure what you mean in a nuttshell is courtesy.

We can all display our opinions in a matter that fosters argument civily as long as we display courtesy and respect for one another.

We don't need to be politically correct, we don't even need to be right in the eyes of others as long as we do not allow pride to overshoot principal. Respect given is respect earned. Thats the way it should be.

If I were only allowed to applaud you Springer, I would. It is my personal opinion that what you have stated is what we need around here. I realize that many of us on ATS love to see our words quoted over and over again and often we neglect to see our mistake(s)...even if such statements are negative and completely takes away from the ATS community as a whole.

I am proud to be a member of ATS and with that being said, I "TRUST" that with all power, ATS/Yourself will make sure that the standards of the ATS community will and can stand the test of Deny Ignorance, Hatred and Racism...only to name a few.

I am proud of the steps you have taken to secure the legacy of ATS

Thank You


PS
The only thing I ask, is that you add a kiss avatar...muah!!!!!!!

when the foci of a topic is division it will always point to the diference of us all,
and when a topic is inclusive we will al hold different opnions but conclude the same things.
when people present stories and news that is devicive,
it is to de vide
when people present sotories or news that makes us smile,
it is to remind us of our comonalities

only in unity
not in devision

we are a cominity
devided we fail

I find your username offensive. Did you create it specifically to be controversial? To mock the name of a mod on here?

Actually, it would appear so, since its a new account with only 2 posts.

vvv

We will be making our judgments on whether the content added to the site enhances ATS and is good for our Community. This makes it pretty simple and completely avoids the morass of trying to define things based on ultra subjective criteria, while allowing the honest discussion and debate of ALL topics not excluded by the Terms and Conditions of Use to carry on.


Off course, with the exception of posts critical of ATS staff and policies, those are removed on sight.

Sometimes you guys should ask yourself this question, Is this for the good of the ATS community?

Then jump of a building.

You have made statements that have completely superceded anything that any of us could possibly comprehend...keep up the good work Pal!
