The only real problem ATS is face its treats its contributors like crap meaning the people who bring content to the site ( in which it gets traffic thus money and ads) And here at ats you get nothing in return for it... latest is Zorgon who got banned. Years of threads and time on his behalf.

The most important posters here have something what you call pride. And they do the hard work adleast treat them with some respect.
This site should thank us, this is but a platform/medium we do the work.

When you here mods/admins its basically this ' if you don't like it leave "

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?






After 5 seconds , brainwash, disturbed, attention seeking etc came to mind!
There are nearly 7 billion people on this planet, how many of us are actually medically sain!

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.


Your few words made me think for a while.

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


hmmm, so you think I've "sold out" for admitting that truth?!

your loss of awareness!

A good indicator of what condition ATS is in is what threads get all the traffic. For instant a thread like "I'm an alien, ask me anything" gets 20 pages of posts and 80 flags. A well thought out scientific paper about proper UFO image analysis gets maybe 2 pages and 6 flags.

But we can't talk about that.


I just tried to look for the top member list.

Do we still have that or did they get rid of it?

The TOP 10 Reasons why ATS has gone downhill.

10. Global Warming.
9. The mods have switched from Everyready to Rayovac to power their implants.
8. People wth bunny avatars are now free to roam the once hallowed halls of ATS.
7. The microwave oven in the ATS breakroom leaks.
6. Casual fridays led to sombrero tuesdays and it became a madhouse ever since.
5. Everyone posting now has gotten those danged flu shots.
4. ATS switched to decaf.
3. Ever since they let "those" people in, it's gone bad. (Belgians)
2. Snookie is now a mod (I swear I won't tell who it is) (Okay, it's Intrepid)
1. Ever since "ATS The Movie" came out, peoples expectations have dropped. (Vin Deisel played the part of beezzer)


Seriously though, ATS is user generated. It'll ebb and flow. I've seen it in my wee time here.

So smile, it's all good.

I read anything that has a captive headline
unfortunatly , the port isn't as captivating
I loved to read about the ancients, religion, natural beauty, space, new scientific discoveries, personal achievement ,anythin that is amazing!
Not the same old repeated crap that star and flag hoarders post!

Those are my favorites as well, seriously start a topic,

I have started topics on some of these issues, they get very little traffic.

That does seem to be the trend.
maybe ridicule is the most common attraction to ATS
Is ATS haeding the same why as the common social network site?..............i feel pity if so!

ATS has not gone mad. ATS has changes with the people. This is a member driven site. The content seen here is only here because you and I put it there.

The core values change as the people change them..... If you want them to change back to what they used to be, then be the change you wish to see.

Yeah a lot of people on here have a warped idea of the Meaning of "truth".
I'm a truth seeker, that's why I'm here.

Pics or proof or it didn't happen is completely fair enough. This should be a faith free site.
"Deny ignorance"
To have faith or to believe things you can't prove to be true takes a certain amount of ignorance. Its as simple as that really!
Have to ignore the BSers but there's way too many of them on here nowadays!

Perhaps we need an area that is only available to members who have a long-standing tenure. Or, that meet other criteria as well. It would certainly help to 'weed-out' some of these problems. Of course, I would be allowed to enter this area. It's only fair, it's my idea!

Sounds like a conspiracy to me.

START THE TOPIC NOW!



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


But seriously, if this many people feel ATS is going downhill then it is your fault. Why don't some of you start making your own threads....

There is HARDLY anything i'd call an UFO thread anymore, not compared to the early years -2007 where you could actually read good and intelligent stuff here PLUS have a good conversation.

Highly interesting cases like the O'Hare case etc. and other cases have been discussed.

TODAY..what you call "UFO thread" is 95% some person who cannot even spell right, re-posts some Youtube video or posts a "UFO thread" which would even hardcore UFO researchers make cringe. Nibiru, PlanetX etc.

Postings which seem to be done by people with an IQ of a potato. The last GOOD thread i found here was the one about that that mass sighting back many decades ago in Australia - the rest, you can honestly forget it.

The rest is conspiracy theories where some person ALWAYS BLAMES Obama and the "current government"..where (in my opinion) a clear political bias always plays a role, as if someone pulls out a theory from their hats so they can blame the Obama legislation for all kinds of stuff. (Sorry, gotten OT here, but there is a clear tendency there in many conspiracy threads, it's more or less just hate threads about the government in disguise).

I am thinking that this was the idea behind the initiation of the OP's thread!

In reality though...there are plenty of us that feel the same way the OP feels...and rather than contribute...we spend 90% of our time weeding through the threads trying to find something worth while...and less time posting!

You make a valid point...let us band together to be the change...but can we overcome the worthlessness of the garbage contributers?
