I think Tdawg hits part of it and it's why I've often had Trending (before recent troubles it seems) up in another window as a regular thing, if not
a fairly regular refresh of recent topics. ATS beats Fox and CNN ..sometimes even Wire services ... on major stories by 5-15 minutes just often enough
to be well worth a bit of excess screen area. It beats wasting a perfectly good 36'" monitor as a TV for one of the cable news channels in the
The other thing I'll say flat out and honestly as one of the more prolific contributors here myself.in recent months. Some won't like it, but tough
cookies and it is what it is.
Posting the more fringe and in many ways, interesting topics is like chum into the water sometimes these days. Atlantis, Other possible civ's like it
but of different names and locations, space / moon topics which aren't along the right lines of thought by some's views, Paranormal outside the
'mainstream' such as it is for that subject....? All of those are like an invitation for the folks who think this is politics all the time or that
it's Science.com and if there isn't hardcore proof, skeptic isn't enough. Outright squashing is required.
If that eased up around those more colorful and wild topics ATS has many forums set up just for? I'll also outright say I would post more that way
and I'm betting it's a fair guess to say I'm not alone among the busy contributors.
