I understand some of the comments here, but i wonder if much of that is because after many years of being on ATS, you have seen it all.
Ok not all, but most. When you first get here it's a massive eye opener, you spend every waking hour going through thread after thread of subjects
you'd never even heard about. There is TONS to look at.
Years down the line now though, we've read a large amount of the juicy stuff. Yes now and again the subject will come up again, maybe in a thread
that's not so well authored, maybe better....however if you know the subject inside out, i'm betting many people skip it.....and wait for that next
new and huge thread.
All those great juicy threads that we saw when we first arrived, they weren't posted daily, far from it, they came around once in a blue moon.
In any generation there will be good and bad posters, there was back then, there is now. I think the worst thing a person can do is think the older
ones are/were better on the forums. I've been here a few years now, yet my ability to construct a massively juicy thread is non-existent compared to
some of the members half my age here.
So i add to threads where i can in the best way i can.
Behavior can be just as bad in the elders too....stubbornness can be as annoying as any other trait.
I think...or should i say i know....as we get older we get less tolerant too. That can be a hindrance on the boards sometimes.
We just have to remember, huge stories that make up the best threads do not come daily. In the mean time, just add to the site as best you can.
