There is a horrible thing in my opinion that happens on ATS, and I would like to add a suggestion that may in fact help both parties.
Sometimes.... ok alot of the time, new members, may come on ATS and have some info that they might have found that would be useful to ATS, the the
info may be important, but the person actually giving it may not be, i.e, Greer, Icke, Jones, Faal, etc,.
Is it possible as there are many threads about these people and why members have a huge problem with them, but that is the opinion of a large group,
and many have a tendency, even though they saw 50 other members write, this is a hoax, members write the same one liners.
"never believe so and so"
"you have been had"
"this is a known hoaxer"
Seriously the list go's on and on. Maybe we can have one thread, with all lets say "known" debatable conspiracy theorists, so that if someone does
this (and someone always does) a mod can come in and delete all derailed, and off topic posts, and add a small link, it could be something like
ALL OFF TOPIC POST ARE REMOVED!
Dear poster, there are many pieces of information that may interest you about the person that you linked, or wrote info about. Here is the research
that has been done by ATS members, sharing their research about Mr./Mrs./Ms ____________.
(LINK ADDED HERE).
Signed, ATS Staff.
This will cause less frustration, and not cause new members to be discouraged about writing threads, and they can research themselves, based on the
same members that would usually cause most of the derailing.
I really do feel bad when I see someone with 30 posts link to one of the above and get bombarded by members not having anything to contribute except
their personal belief about that person. Its unfair, and takes up the time of everyone involved.
I am sure that ATS prides itself on not letting members get treated in such a way, and I think that this could help everyone, no one can derail as
this was already posted, and the same members that would have had a one liner, could participate in the thread that will be linked, and not feel
ignored about their opinion of the said person.
