This thread may help explain my dilemma. Thank you and take care.
Actually, you do not have a dilemma at all at least as far as being able to create threads that are based on highly speculative "What Ifs?" or pure
speculation without any proof, links, sources or anything.
The forum for those threads here on ATS is called Skunk Works, and while the name of the forum is not very flattering, it is a place here on ATS where
you can make threads that do not require you to back up things you are talking about. Here is the official description of Skunk Works:
ATS Skunk Works: This forum is dedicated to the all-important highly speculative topics that may not be substantiated by many, if any facts and
span the spectrum of topics discussed on ATS. Readers and users should be aware that extreme theories without corroboration are embraced in this
forum. Discussion topics and follow-up responses in this forum will likely tend to lean in favor of conspiracies, scandals, and cover-ups. Members who
would seek to refute such theories should be mindful of AboveTopSecret.com's tradition of focusing on conspiracy theory, cover-ups, and
Another forum that may suit threads you want to start might be The Gray Area, but is more of an area for personal stories or experiences, yet again,
does not require to to back up anything you are presenting. Here is the description for that area:
The Gray Area: The Gray Area is a discussion forum that provides a dedicated area for members to post their confessions, disclosures, and related
extraordinary personal experiences. Like the highly speculative Skunk Works forum, The Gray Area will tolerate topics that may be unusually
hypothetical or unproven for the purpose of vetting the stories of thread-starters by the ATS membership at large.
You did say in your thread that you linked above, that you are not happy with some of the post responses you get. While I can understand that, keep in
mind that this is a public forum, and people will respond to your threads, either in ways you might like, or not.
You can choose to ignore the responses that you do not like, just keep in mind that it won't make them go away however.
