This is slightly hypocritical as what I am about to say has also been said many times before. The difference is that you can't say it enough times as
it obviously doesn't hit home.
Anyway, there have always been double threads about, that is actually quite understandable for lesser news and generally I do not really mind as I
will go to the one that has been written first.
People may write similar threads at the same time or on different forums, it can genuinely happen.
It does get silly though when it comes to 'big' breaking news, such as the recent NY shooting or the death of Armstrong.
Do all of those people who start new threads about massive news days after they happen really believe that on a website like ATS nobody has been there
By all means have the same thing covered 2 or 3 times but after a couple of days of something major happening you'd expect that anyone with half a
brain cell could have a quick scroll down the 'New Topic' page to see if it has been covered before. They don't even need to use the 'Search'
I mean at the moment, there are two 'new' threads on Armstrongs death right underneath each other.
These are on top of about 5 or more older ones further down.
Just one glance at the 'New Topic' page will reveal that there are already more than enough yet someone will just type up another one.
I can't even begin to understand how ignorant some people are. Or are they just lazy and don't give a damn?
Both is bad.
ATS is an online community and if we never mention what annoys us then others will never know.
I am fully aware that neither I nor this thread will change these lazy/stupid posters ever, but that is not the point. This is the 'Rant' forum and
that is all I am doing. Venting my disbelief at those that have no ability for logical thought.
Pffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff....that is the steam I have just released; and now I feel better and can get on with reading threads made by
those whose neural pathways are clear and functioning.
