ATS is fine,
When elections come around....certain people come online to show support for their candidate. All parties do this and allot of people do this on their
When a certain military effort is being pushed, people go online to muster support for said conflict. It can come from all sides....those attacking or
those being attacked and those whom it is being done for or against supposedly.
When certain agendas are being ironed out, people go online to get the pulse of people. from ATS to face book, to Christian organizations. Everything
is collected and sent to those advising policy makers.
Sometimes you have people who used to work here or there that on their off time come here to troll a bit and have a laugh, or others who come here to
keep up with what they left off in their careers.
Then you have people who are religious fanatics, others who are anti religion fanatics, new angers, out right fascists. All sorts of apologists, arm
chair generals, ect....
it is normal. I like it this way. If it were all like minded people, I would not be a member. I would never hear the other side.
This is still a great site and I believe in it. It is worth allot to have a place like ATS. It is not worse, just reflective of the people in the
world to some degree like all sites are being that we make up the membership. Maybe we are worse as people....If your issue is with content then
provide the substance you find lacking.
I have made threads where I posted EVERY response. I don't care. I learned something, or wanted a reference point for myself to organize information,
so I did the work and posted it. If anything for myself.
Just add what you feel is lacking. Speak up to those you disagree with and learn from them, meet them half way and move on. If they are human crap,
just ignore them.
I personaly like what people would call shills. They make you work for it, and eventually teach you all you need to know about what the counter
argument could be in real life.
I even like trolls since they provide comedy relief.
All in all.....ATS rocks.
