Underground gone mainstream, that is what happens when something gets popular. It becomes populated and these things are more likely to occur.

Hi, I agree with some of this. I guess what bothers me is seeing a 'screaming' headline and then it's not what you think it is, which makes the headline misleading.

People attacking others and calling names also bothers me. If this is a conspiracy site and we are all in a spirited debate about a theory then why all the name calling?

election year
folks become uber stupid

blame sunstein as well for the influx of trolls and bots

and that's not counting regular invasions by
The Hordes of GuLP

you need to remember that the internet is like a whole 'nother planet, a virgin frontier
governments and mega-corps and other power-trippers and greed heads are bringing all the crap
that should have been left behind in the "old world".

just read what you like and learn to filter the crap

but most importantly let's not be elitists

otherwise the degeneration will be irreparable.

This is one the best forums online, the trouble is that it has attracted too many know-it-alls!

Im hooked because it will always have the old school people that give us something to think about

People are still keeping it real, it's just you've got to look a little harder now since this site has many new users.

It is not just ATS, it is how our culture has developed.

We are a society where greed, ego, self-indulgence and anti-intellectualism reign supreme.

This site may be isolated, but it is not immune.

Many of the best contributors to ATS have been disappeared by the mods.

But we can't talk about that.

Personally i think the site should drop the conspiracy act, and "alternate news etc " People who are open minded get ridiculed and whatnot. UFO's etc used to be what people looked for on here, now if you start a UFO thread you either get banned or its getting trolled on.

CT's went mainstream.

The average individual is not so bright.

That's all that needs to be known to make sense of the changes which have taken place.

It's because we're getting too many people like this girl! Her insight into god will cause you shock and awe on a level you will never forget. Will somebody please donate a brain for this airhead?

This is most likely why ATS has not been the great site it used to be.

A thread should be created about this ! Atleast it would give us/we something to discuss that is new( ish)

Your few words made me think for a while.

I hope that the true searcher doesn't sell-out and stays with the masses!

Yes, especially when you get censored for adding a little sarcasm to a possible explanation of one of the "happenings" on a thread.

Also, many posters here are confrontational and nasty. Then when you give their attitude back to them in a sarcastic way, they fail to understand your meaning and then get even more offended. Sheesh! What is the world coming to??? Wait! I know...we are turning into a bunch of "sheeple". And how so very ironic for this site. The very thing that ATS is fighting, it has become...LOL!

There is a serious lack of critical thinking here and it is no longer thought provoking or informative.

I don't care for ATS anymore and I am officially out of here! Perhaps to start my own conspiracy website!!!!
