There are persons that do this.
There are also persons that come into the UFO forum and post one liners that they believe, or that skeptics are stupid, or woe is us ... what is the
point of posting a UFO video or picture if 'experts' just keep coming in and debunking them. My favorite is the person that comes into UFO threads
and says ... This is actually a reptoid ship from Sirius B .... with no further explanation.
The same goes for all the one liner drive by opinions about how Atheists have no morality, how gay people don't deserve any rights, conservatives are
insane, leftists and feminists are communists, the gun debate is designed to take our attention away from X or Y ... etc etc ... [insert agenda here
The issue isn't atheists trolling religion, it's people just not bothering to read a thread and then leaving whatever stub-like opinion they have
lying around like garbage in the middle of it. (Same posters over and over usually)
I came to the conclusion a long time ago that ATS is ATS. A theology / signal processing / politics / sociology / astronomy / whatever your poison is
forum is where a lot of the crazy in depth linear discussions go. ATS you're going to be challenged (and sometimes trolled) and the best thing you
can do is just ignore it when they put no effort in. If they don't, why should you?
I have actually read some of your threads, and you ignore those elements quite well. Keep it up.
Sometimes I think ATS should just remove the 'recent posts' button so people actually have to actively go to a forum to post in it. Might stop the
drunkards wandering into the wrong bar.
