Because more often than not, they are interesting in arguing, not sticking to their point.

They will continually change direction and counteract with nonsense. It is a never ending battle.

See post above yours.....for answer to your question.


Everyone has to have an excuse for why they consistently lose debates.

If you choose the "I won't stoop to that level" argument for why you lose, good for you!

Crying "TROLL!" is the milk of ATS, and milk is for babies.

I often refer to myself as a Ninja, when I see a Slayer or RA thread I instantly flag it and reply with a


I sometimes refer to myself in the 3rd person and enter random debates with people...

So then, if I were to follow your OP's logic...

Which members u think are attention whores?

I've suggested a way- not to filter contrary posts out, but to label them, perhaps by using a
different font or background color- if the poster disagrees with the op. This way, posts made by
trolls or attention whores (as you put it) can be easily overlooked - to focus on the topic at
hand. More details are in
thread link.

There hasn't been an official response since it was suggested, which IMHO is to the detriment to
the respect of the OPs creativity... Nobody (at least most ppl) wants to post a sensitive,
potential fringe, or even personal topic just to have to endure a predicted onslaught of attacks
and attempts of misaligning the thread towards a different tangent every time.
There should
be an easy way to overlook those detracting posts. On the other hand, my suggestion thread
wasn't deleted.


I've noticed in the last two or three months a dearth of posts recently on ATS.... the home page
lists threads with a mere 18 flags and 17 replies. ATS has changed, and not for the better.

This thread is about me, right? And if it wasn't before...it will be!
Pffft. There's people like this wherever you go. It's no new thing, dude.

They exist, they're hated. They're often tolerated and more popular than you and me.

Didn't you learn this lesson in junior high school? Or at least your first day online?

By the way, how does one display shallow emotion while posting on a forum (your 2nd point of criterion) and how does one identify this behavior?

Thanks for the honorable mention. Nothing like directing traffic to that which you despise.

LOL! S+F for you my friend.

Your post reminded me of a old website I ran across ages ago called the Flame Warriors.

redwing.hutman.net...

Read about some of the characters in there and I'm sure you'll be reminded of some of the more common posters on ATS.

It's so embarrassing. Of course they have to capriciously let everyone know how they feel about it even though it is irrelevant to the topic at hand. But we are talking about a man/woman with possibly an IQ over 90 that can't handle the combination of the words "anal" and "pleasure" in the same sentence...in the year 2012...on the internet....and feels compelled to stop reading because of it, so....not much can be done. We're losing this war!
