On this day, ATS Members (with the support of staff), take back the 9/11 Conspiracies forum from the despicable sensationalist equivocators who
have usurped these topics in the name of gratuitous squabbling and attention-seeking chicanery. These topics have become so irreparably polluted with
the flotsam of escalating one upmanship and repugnant language that no thinking person dare consider participation.
To those responsible, spare me your feigned indignation and self-righteous disdain. You've turned important topics into intense personality clashes
of Internet trollery for your heinous egotistical personal entertainment. Forcing away all who may examine and challenge your position from a learned
but concerned vantage point.
On ATS, this announcement marks the beginning of the end.
The new rules for the 9/11 Conspiracies Forum are painfully clear, and based on your prior efforts of contributing value to ATS.
(1) To Create New Threads:
Your WATS score (the blue W in your mini profile) must be 10 or better. And you must have been an ATS member for at least 30 days.
(2) To Reply To Existing Threads:
Your WATS score must be at least 1.0 and you must have been an ATS member for at least 48 hours.
(3) Your Account Will Be Terminated for Any Infraction:
You will receive an immediate account termination for all T&C infractions other than large quotes and off-topic posts. Unless, of course, in the
opinion of our staff, your repeated off-topic (or large quotes) are an attempt at disrupting the forum.
Example: calling any ATS member a shill will result in an account termination.
Equivocation or artificial confusion of these clearly defined parameters for 9/11 Conspiracies forum participation will not be entertained.
After 90 days under these new parameters specific to the 9/11 Conspiracies Forum, our staff will review progress. If there is significant
improvement, the immediate account termination rules may be relaxed. However, items one and two will never be altered or otherwise relaxed.
There will be another announcement to indicate that the necessary changes have been made, and the forum has been re-opened for participation.
Rule #3 applies in this thread.
