This is just my opinion and it doesn't apply to everyone...
A lot of people want so much to believe somethign they they refuse to think objectively about a subject. Be it supernatural or something that can
easily be researched and debunked. More and more, there will be entire threads or posts where posters will bicker non-sensically about the most
ridiculous subjects, and not even give any ground one way or the other.
I may not have very many posts, and I've never made a thread (for this reason)...but I have been a long time visitor...and the state of ATS has been
lackluster. I'd go as far as saying worse than "MSM" at times.
I used to look forward to opening my homepage and catching up on legitimate posters and threads that were thought out and well informed. Nowadays,
all you need is a title that is a blatant lie and a youtube video...BAM! Thread worthy...really? C'mon.
I feel like a jerk everytime I open a thread that sounds sort of interesting, only to find garbage research/data, and lack of quality sources. If
trying to find out more is the purpose, by all means, there is nothing wrong with trying to get a discussion going in order to get the more man power
behind a topic. However, too often the latter is not the case and I am compelled to rage on how ridiculous a thread/post truely is. Thus, making
me..A) Look like an A-hole and B) Look like I don't care about the topic, when I actually do.
Now, that should be in the rants section. Haha.
