Ah... "the plan."
I can assure you that, in my experience, every time I have wondered about the development of our community's future, the owners, admins and such have
proved my concerns to be founded on a 'lack of faith' which some of them may find "disturbing' (damn shock collar!)
Actually, there are always plans. And there are more than can be chosen from at any one time. Our hosts have mastered the navigation of this vehicle
impressively... soon enough one or more may notice the question and offer up some teasers...
But we always have to bear in mind that much of what makes ATS what it is comes from you, the members and plan though we may, there are at
least 250,000 of you who may, in contributing, change them on the fly.
In some ways it is best to float like a leaf on a river... following the ebb and flow of events and the observations of the community... when you most
hunger for what you would appreciate as 'quality' - you are free to provide it, and set the example, and thus the bar, higher with each post.
Our ability to be on the spot with breaking news, developments, and otherwise 'unreported' material is a particularly valuable community service the
members provide for each other.
Some might be surprised and impressed by the identity and nature of some who look to ATS before they produce their media.... we have made an
impact and an impression in some fairly significant circles.... the community reporting on many events makes me wonder.... why does the MSM suck so
badly at what they do.... then I realize it's because they don't do what they're supposed to be doing....
I keep my expectations high.... inevitably, when I wonder if that's a good idea, some member comes along and demonstrates clearly that it is.
