Well, I've been here for a month now (and 2 days)... I still think the list I made is accurate. There are things to add to it. I'll use letters
instead of numbers since I can't remember what number I left off at and don't want to backtrack and check.
A. Do not feed the trolls
B. Do not feed the trolls
C. Do not feed the trolls
D. Do not feed the trolls
I seem to have trouble remembering that one!!!
E. Don't get on ATS between 9pm Friday and 8 am Sunday. The weekend is crawling with trolls and it's not worth it.
Every big issue I've had, since my trial by fire, has involved being online here from late Friday night, all through Saturday and Saturday night.
That's when the trolls come out and I'm still having trouble resisting them.
F. Apparently, people get banned and just make new accounts.
I've been asked if I did this. No, This is my first account on ATS and I have never participated in any way, shape or form before a month (and 2

G. On your messages screen, if you click "replies" you can see who has replied to any of your postings. I just learned that a few days ago and it's

Can everyone tell I've been dealing with a troll this weekend? Am I being obvious enough? LOL
J. Regardless of what a thread is about and how many links to information is given and how many videos are put up, There is a large group of people
who don't read the links, don't look at the information and don't watch the videos. They read the title of the thread, interpet it by the title,
form their opinion and refuse to waiver from that opinion regardless of how many times it is explained to them.
Well, the experience for the entire month has been good, but the experience on the weekends hasn't been. I think I'll avoid it like the plague next
Let's see what the second month brings!!
