1. I do think that you have a good heart as well as an intelligent and enquring mind, based upon the text in pink in the first post.
2. You also had came to terms with your thread or threads being deleted, after spending SEVERAL HOURS for the effort to write it. I sincerely commend
your effort, as a fellow member on ATS.
I am glad you understood the T & C. We are all guests here after all. Your post about the moderators are mainly just to let off steam.
It is common, and good for the soul. Let it out, and you will feel better.
3. This is ATS, evolved over a decade from celebrity shennigans to deep and serious social issues today, and survived with much thanks to the site
owners as well as many of the moderators, and most important of all - the contributors whom are the contend producers whom makes people come back and
new ones to join.
It does hurt to see one's effort binned, or not given (useless) stars and such while frivolous posts get plenty of replies and recognition. We are
all humans after all.
But in the end, you MUST realize and ask why are you posting. What was it meant for?
Was it for ego, for self satisfaction, or worse - to hurt and harm using the pen?
Most of the moderators do know what they are doing, and rules by the siteowner had changed to ensure that most of the pettiness or double standards
are removed, thus ATS evolution and popularity.
If it was meant for others, do you need to open a new thread, instead of contributing to another's regardless of their viewpoint, to show your stand
there and prove their views wrong?
If it was for oneself and ego, then there are probably million other similar threads.
My suggestion would be that you spend more effort into contributing your views to others threads. It doesnt matter if it gets placed deep in long past
pages as time goes by, but with the thousands that read ATS everyday, you can rest assured that your point would have been read by others, and will be
supported if others share your view, or ignored if it is not what they feel comfortable with.
Thing about ATS is that it gives everyone a voice in a central location visited by millions all over the world, a note or notes left to posterity,
something which our serf ancestors could never do, except for a painted pic of an animal in a cave hidden away, to show that he/she had once walked
As you move along, and get experience with the flow of conversation by all kinds here, and we DO get all kinds here, you will know when to open a new
thread - when some viewpoint is sorely overlooked and need to be addressed, something new, which if goes accordingly to T & C rules, the chances of it
getting binned will be lower, not that it wont, sadly from my own experience.(lol)
AND MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL - ATS is not life itself. Do not spend too much time locked on here that it becomes a pyschological entanglement with real
life. There is a better life, and it's out there with those you love and who loved you. That's what that matters the most - LIVING the LIFE given.
Good luck and Cheers! :-)
