I took a break for a couple of weeks because it was getting ridiculous. Intelligent discourse gave way to nit-picking, making fun of people, and generally derailing threads with obnoxious crap.
It's as if a bunch of high schoolers suddenly signed up and they have nothing of value to add, have zero insight, and use the computer to badger, bully, and insult.
But, to be fair, there are also people who assume that they "know it all", and will come on and pick a thread to pieces because they assure us that they are experts. There are ways to disagree and make your point without being a rude bastard.
It's always good to walk away in these cases. Life needs attending to from time to time. And yeah, this is just for "entertainment purposes only".....but there was a high standard for ATS, which is rapidly disintegrating thanks to a bunch of juvenile fools and older posters who should know better but somehow don't.edit on 21-5-2012 by FissionSurplus because: (no reason given)
