Really - as the other poster said: Be the change you want to be. Raise your own bar. Don't beat down, build up.
With the MASS of info 'out there'? At least here it's a bit easier to rake through the crap to find the pearls than anywhere I've found to date.

I agree to a point. I usually breeze through Yahoo lies first then come here, and it seems more and more frequently that all the stories there that intrest me have a multi-star flag post here on the same topic. I always enjoyed reading the x-files type stuff, news of the weird kind of thing you expect here, but all to often its the MSM type of posts covering everything up. I noticed after every new episode of Ancient Aliens, plagiarism was abound. I never write posts so I shouldnt complain, but darnit, im ready for some more mad ramblings of the insane! This is 2012! Im ready to be entertained by you nutjobs.

Manipulation is an interesting word...
Further to my previous statement, in reply to the OP, as I say, I frequent the "old skool" ATS.
Much better content back there, you'll see the star system is barely used, just the way I like it
And lucky enough, ATSs archiving still provides me with plenty of material. Some right old gems.
I recommend it for any one who wants reading material, yet a break from the daily hum drum.

For anyone who's all that concerned about the relatively thin ratio of threads started in Staff forums vs threads in public forums, then I hope it does, too.
Funny place ATS is I like it. I like many of the people and most all of the mods.
