I think though, some of you are missing my point.
A thread is a conversation, it has a progression. If you jump in 9 pages later and either provide the same information that 20 people already just did
- what's the point?
Let's use an example. Let's say I post a video of a UFO and 2 pages in, someone refutes it, provide evidence that it's not a UFO, but a secret
government project. Then, someone else adds to that, and so on, but then on page 4, and page 8 and even page 10, we still have people responding as if
none of this additional information has been brought into the conversation and in my opinion at that point it's no longer a conversation.
One of the really great things about ATS is our ability to 'cloud' source data together, to find answers, to help each other learn and be
knowledgeable. Endlessly replying to threads without taking a moment to read the thread, or, at the very least skim through it, just creates noise.
If you don't have time to do that, then you aren't really contributing, are you? If you didn't read what anyone else posted, then they certainly
aren't reading what you posting and you are ALL just talking to yourselves. See what I mean?
