Hello friend. Youre right on most points. I do think as well that pointless posts, threads and the like and intentional disinfo are a sign of the
times, thats all. And youre right as well about the available search functions here and elsewhere. It appears this case is a changing one.
There is coming a day...and we are seeing it now...where it's mostly "Look at what I found!" and "Hey! I dont know if this has been mentioned
(posted, discussed, whatever...)'...when in fact...It WAS posted, discussed, and hacked apart already....but the poster has not...nor cared not...to
search their subject matter... that at ATS we were anxious enough at the mention of the topic...and then disappointed that the thread starter didnt
bother enough to see if we've discussed it previously...and in fact...a simple search for example....wouldve provided even more information than the
OP did in the new thread.... had they just looked 1st..
Include some bogus members and disinfo agents along the way...and we get a whole different world here at ATS. It was informative members discussing
mutually interesting and well researched topics...and that made it interesting to learn something brand new we hadnt heard before.
Cynically (Im guilty here of that) Ive often responded frustratingly to some with a "Did you know the Kennedy Assassination was a conspiracy?"...and
that" 911 was an inside -false-flag job?" And that the"Illuminati runs the world?". Throw in a good dose of disinfo here and there and its
I wish there was a way to get rid of the "Mods? Please move this....etc,etc..because I couldnt be bothered to search the thing..."...and a way to
diseminate whats false, untrue, pointless, bogus, disinfo or real info. Thats all changing here now. And its getting harder and harder to tell who the
players are without a score card...and often enough....thats bogus as well.
Disinfo, wrong info, fake members what have you...Im learning to look at the OP 1st to see how many posts they have made...and if its under say 50 or
so...I just move on. And its becoming a lot easier by the sarcasm to see who may still be in high school and living in front of their PSPs...with a
"Oh my GOD! Facebook and Twitter is DOWN!"
There used to be a high percentage of quality here when I 1st joined....and of course yes, there still is...but the tables are turning...and it seems
it's becoming another "chat room" with way too many insults and joke and off-topic rambling responses.
Sad to see at such a wonderfully diverse and informative website as ours...that with repetetive unresearched topics and disinfo and yes...some bogus
members..thats its changing the way it is.
