Ive felt this too.
Its because when you come in and post a comment, the trajectory of the argument is already set, and the main players already preparing their
statements, and anything that knocks the trajectory off just gets ignored. I've resolved whole threads in one post and literally seen the post sink
to the depths of ATS while the participants rehash the same old points again and again.
Its because most people on ATS are trying to tell their story instead of listen to other peoples and are only trying to convert people to their
philosophy instead of all the community of ATS collaborating their brilliant minds together to try and find the true philosophy and answers.
Its because as soon as someone makes a new thread everyone just throws their two cents in and leaves instead of the way it used to go where people
would drop their ego and put their heads together to try and come to the truth, putting all the two cents together, getting a thousand bucks and
investing it wisely, so to speak.
And its somewhat due to that horrible elitism that creeps up on you if you venture into realms of the intellectual without properly cleansing the soul
first and removing egoity from yourself.
And that's not to say that I am without any of the above, for indeed, even having just written this post I am aware of some inconsistencies in which
I commit what I am denouncing therein. And I know only too painfully that I am guilty of the above elitism, although not any more (I hope) however, as
I already pointed out, this is not to say that I am without these, its just to say.
