I have been coming to this site for awhile, first lurking and reading posts. Then when I was ready to start the threads that brought me here I signed
up for a account, which I still haven't posted my original intentions that brought me here because everything was derailed by the following.
First it was the elections, I got caught up with the vs discussions and even started my own threads and joined in on the debates...that is until it
got out of hand and I couldn't even handle coming to ATS because the growing amount of insults, ridiculous threads, and even major propaganda that was
just nothing but false.
So when elections passed I was exited to get back into the normal flow of discussions here on ATS...that is until Sandy Hook.
The discussions on that subject, were/are some of the most irrational, argumentative, and just plain disrespectful conversations I have ever read on
this site (Which to my astonishment is still going on to a certain degree). Which of course Sandy Hook led to the gun control conversations/laws,
which again leads into irrational, argumentative, and disrespectful discussions.
I even went as far as trying to establish a thread to discuss it in a reasonable manner and all it brought was one side of the debate. I can not even
log in anymore without seeing 15 posts relating to gun control, it is taking over this site and it is making me not even want to come here any longer.
The discussions have moved way beyond Conspiracy theories, aliens, and other topics not easily found on other sites in one place.
So going forward, I will not be posting commenting or feeding into this subject, I would love ATS to turn back into the site that made me want to sign
up for an account. Now I will be getting back to the reasons why I came here! I will not get caught up in your titles, no matter how shocking,
irrational, or interesting the subject line is!
Thank you for listening to my rant!
