But this morning, while I was in the shower - where I do most of my quality thinking, it occurred to me. These people are sssooo freaking fake in
their supposed sincerity. I mean it hit me like a ton of bricks. Sure, they crusade here - and it looks honorable and noble to some other folks. But
think about it. Are any of these people popping-up and saying "Great, I went to work today and tried to tell everyone there about my thoughts on this
issue. The boss told me company policy forbade such discussion... But, damn it, freedom of speech matters so much to me that I INSISTED he shut up and
let me speak. I got fired for my beliefs! I feel THAT strongly about the subject!"
What a load of bull. You are seriously comparing talking on a conspiracy website with the motto "deny ignorance", to talking in the workplace?
First off the analogy is ridiculous, second, no boss has ever told me I could not talk about what I wanted while at work, and they don't even have the
motto this site has.
You are surprised that people continue to speak their minds here? That is beyond retarted.
Hell no they haven't. And they won't. Why not? Because they've got common sense! That's right. Sense enough not to tamper with their own lives. So why
do it here? Why front like a crusader when the truth is that you won't even bloody your blade? Why engage in empty rhetoric here when it's not
important enough to really stand up for?
Because this is a discussion forum? Because you promise that ingnorance is denied here?
I don't get the confusion here, seems pretty straightforward. What else should people do in such a situation? If the beef is on this forum, where else
should they fight?
Of course the answer is obvious. They do it here because there is nothing to lose here. Getting banned isn't really a threat. So it's the perfect
place to act like a crusader and to play games with whatever following you can attract. If they get banned along with you? Bonus lulz.
Again, if the beef originated here, where else should they do it?
Fake crusaders don't really want the Feds knocking on their front doors to take a formal statement about what they say they believe. They don't want
to be on record saying the crazy stuff they DEMAND the "right" to say here.
Again, you make no sense at all. Off course nobody wants FEDS knocking on their door, but this is anonymous conspracy website that claims to deny
Your logic is ridiculous.
You ever see a thread titled "Cartoons Are Disclosure!!!" and then a statement that the OP believes strongly enough in that fact that he/she is going
to test it by dropping an anvil on their head? Running off of a cliff to see if they really do hover there for 2 seconds? Smoke dynamite to see if
they'll survive the explosion blackened, and moving their nose back in place - from the back of their head? Ya ever see a thread from somebody
wanting to know where the real world Acme products mail order company can be found at?
What are you rambling on about?
But this morning, while I was in the shower - where I do most of my quality thinking,
Is this the result?
For them I say: If you see a member in meltdown and sympathize or empathize with them. Ask yourself? Do they really have a valid point that they are
genuinely moved by? Or are they just empty crusaders looking for an environment where they can stir the pot and get their jollies at the expense of
In other words, don't sympathize with those that got beef with ATS, over ATS actions.
That was the whole point of this thread right?
