Is it just me?
Am i nuts? (ok don't answer that)
I would estimate of ALL recently made threads that about 80% is disinformation whether through intentional means or simple ignorance.
Just MY estimation IMHO.
I look back at the "classic" threads from way before my time here and there is actual research, intelligent debate, and REAL issues.
What happened to that?
Even in the recent spake of North Korea threads there is all (now realize I'm open-minded, but skeptical) this hyperbolic language and pure
speculation put in forum NOT labeled "Highly Speculative" and such.
There seems to have always been an us vs them" thing on ATS (whoever the "them" is) but ....
OK I'll say it outright:
Are the True believers and Speculative personalities over-talking
everyone else, or is it just my perception?
I love how smyleegrl and Pred and Harte and Byrd and others give use the real deal on ancient mysteries, and how Phage gives actual FACTS (gasp) on
scientific issues, many others like Soylent or ErikTA or countless others...............................
BUT there are multitudes of others "Constructing Disinformation
" daily in every forum everyday.
Is this just the trend of our society now?
Present your thoughts or personal beliefs as FACT?
Or is it hubris....anonymity...deluded people...intentional attempts to misguide or troll?
I can't tell anymore.
I know from my experience and studies and my gut what is BS and what isn't..........but I ask again.
Is it just me?
Or am I just getting to sensitive or fed up with it?
