Believe me when I say the irony of this rant is not lost on me but seriously this is just annoying
I logged onto ATS just before midday (UK time) and saw the threads about the Pope quitting, I think there were perhaps 3 or 4 threads all on the one
thing, now ok I thought this is a big story so there are going to be a few people racing to post it first.
I logged back into ATS about 15 minutes ago and the top 4 threads on the recent posts page were about the pope, it would seem that loads of people
have come out with various threads all about the pope quitting and their take on it. I have counted at least 10 threads all about the pope’s
Really this race to be the first to post is pathetic, what more pathetic is in a desperate attempt to get some ATS attention members reposting the
same thread about the same news topic. There is no way these members could not know that its already been posted, it’s on the front page, recent
posts page, all over the breaking news forum and for me it was all over “myATS”. So why are people still bother to keep writing new threads about
the exact same thing. Why cant these members, if they are really so interested in the topic just post on one of the numerous existing threads on the
I feel sorry for whoever actually got the scoop on this story, if you get the scoop you should get credit for doing so, that is to say awarded the
stars, flags and perhaps even an applause or two for something particularly big. All these parasites who obviously see that a thread already exists
on the subject and go into a thread creating frenzy just to leach off whoever got that scoop and steel a few flags. Yes I know every now and then
it’s possible that there might be one or two who do this unintentionally but I think in this case its really quite obvious that there are some glory
hunters out there looking to gain a few extra easy flags, some who do it crate a thread that could quite easily have counted as a post in a existing
thread, that’s also annoying the “why I think the pope is resigning” threads are just as bad.
I feel really sorry for the poor Mods that have to sort out the mess that some less than humble and courteous members have created.
Ohhhh and just on the off change that any of you missed the news, the pope is going to resign!.
Please restrain yourself form creating a thread about it there already exist a dozen or so.
