The motto of this website is deny ignorance. Given that an under informed member can show themselves up in some very aggravating ways sometimes, I
think that not only is this a good idea which speaks to the core values of the site, but will potentially improve the contributions of the membership.
I love ATS. I have always appreciated, DEEPLY appreciated the oppertunity it provides me to sharpen my wit, to have my mind stimulated, and as a
forum which offers me an oppertunity to speak my mind and use the more... random bits of information I have aquired over the course of my life, to
illuminate a subject, and to discuss it.
That appreciation means that I see this place as quite a bit more than a simple discussion forum, or a conspiracy site. The people here, no matter
which side of a debate they take, have a certain ineffable quality, something that makes thier thinking unique. I believe that this place has allowed
me to improve my intellectual capability over the time I have been a member.
I would love to see ATS become a hub of all knowledge, where one can learn both through interaction with its contents, but also under the mentorship
of some of its members and FSME's. I think it would offer a forum for informal learning which would be very helpful ,and good for the site.
I cannot get across just how much I love this idea.
