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 seem to be saying that the forum is being attacked by people who don't accept the conspiracy, and management is saying it's being attacked by people who do. Everybody seems to believe that the forum is being attacked. Since it is being attacked, why not shut it down, at least for a while? I don't like seeing any forum attacked, even those I'm not personally concerned with.
The fact there there is trolls, shills, spammers, propaganda and dis-info campaigns just proves that the 911 attacks and the quest for truth is being penetrated by the terrorists themselves who are continually covering up or smearing the discussions surrounding 911.
If we accept that TPTB are behind this attack, (although I don't understand how any new, damning information will show up on ATS 11 years after the event) then what is your solution? Allow attacks on a forum if it's one you think is important? Allow attacks on all threads?
The focus of the 911 quest for truth should also include the groups and people who from the very early weeks after the attacks began well funded campaigns of 911 disinformation theories that have attacked, smeared, ridiculed the truth movement by appearing to be the leaders of the 911 truth movement yet having yet a very sinister, opposite agenda by means of 'leading the opposition' and to have this forum closed is a complete victory for that agenda.

Did I miss something? When did we shut down the 9/11 forum and how do the Mods and Admin know it was the "pilots for 9/11" that was causing a stink.
What I find funny is that we were told that certain theories pertaining to 9/11 could not be discussed because it would "muddy the waters" for those seeking the truth and it ends up being those truth seekers that shut it down.
How's that for karma?
It's about the only place on the planet people can still talk about and be reminded of the possible conspiracies surrounding the issues that's still not censored and shut down bu those with an agenda.
It's simple, we won't allow the huge value ATS has for millions of people all over the world, in hundreds of topics, be destroyed by a comparative handful of people with an apparently very skewed agenda (on BOTH sides of the issue).
