yeah, this is something i don't get either, fair enough if they have a valid argument but sometimes you just get people who have nothing better to say than ''what a load of rubbish'' etc, but if its not something they have an interest in why bother posting pointless negative comments, if i read something that i thought was a bit far fetched i would simply leave the thread and move onto another one rather than try to bring the op down or make them look stupid, thats just not my style.
i don't get where the respect has gone... obviously i'm not taking about the majority of people on ats i'd like to add

So, instead of being critical, ask for sources, do research and look behind the topic, we should all just agree with the "OP" and give him stars and flags? So...just say "Oh great story" "Oh what a great Topic" or "Yeah that light you saw in in your backyard was clearly an alien Spaceship" or "Yeah we belive in Ghosts because your stupid dog behaved 'weirdly' so it was cleary a paranormal activity"
What about those people who predict earthquakes and wars every other month? Just agree with them and head for our shelters? Is that the way it should go? Is that denying ignorance?
I don't think so
We're all people, we're all different and even if we're all on ATS not all people here are paranoid and believe we're chased down by the man in black who work for the "TPTB" who wants to have "TSHTF" for "WW3" and a complete crisis to wipe out the entire planet.
To Deny Ignorance means to do ask, do research, prove people wrong (with sources) and that is what's going on here. If you don't like it, leave - i bet there's a forum out there that jumps on every "I filmed a light on the street!!! It's clearly a UFO!!!" topic and go with it.
Deny ignorance doesn't mean "hate on the mainstream media, ignore all news shows, believe in every stupid blog and 'reports' from people without any proof, pictures or videos and that's the main problem here on ATS. Somebody tells a story that may came right out of a horror novel and people believe it. Even if it's completely absurd and superficial - people believe it, without asking for further proof and those people who want to see more proof, pictures, videos (come on we're living in the 21st century it's not the wild west anymore) are made fun of because they just don't believe every # they read here

The wicked PTB salute you and laugh at you.
While you puff yourselves up with how "good" you are ("ohhh, I never knew this about Charlie Chaplin--look at me, I am a moonbat do-gooder and soon to be a god, just like the movies and evolution tell me"), the satanic new world order moves forward.....pathetic and sad.

Basically, my point is when I first joined the site, I thought it was a site for people who were into conspiracy theories and things of that nature to come together and discuss things. I thought it was for like-minded individuals. And while I do see a lot of support, I also see A LOT of negative posts and comments from people.
