Why would I be, why would you be? It's a virtual spot on the internet, are you ashamed to be an internet user? I mean consider all the child pron, and
gore filled pictures out there, and the culture of of trolling each other that has become common place, all the hate groups, all the insert name here.
Ashamed? Hell no. Those demons don't belong to me, those are for others to sort out in their life. So what if they say something brash, they wanted a
reaction and unto them you gave it. In their books mission accomplished.
It's been IDK what, 10 years with this account, Never once been ashamed to be a member of ATS and I've seen some outlandish things. Sure I disagree
with a lot of folks so what, you might agree with me in one thread, hell even feel compelled to like me, while you may run into me in another thread
and decide you despise me. Yet Ashamed? I'd hope not.
Not like there is some high bar to become a member on ATS where we only let certain kinds in, it's a free exchange of information, thoughts and
opinions. I say put your big boy boots on and enjoy the ride. Doesn't mean you have to agree or disagree with someone saying effed up stuff, call
them out, tell them they are wrong and this is why you believe so, hell if you are so offended you could just contact the mods. I mean cmon we all
know the first reply to the thread in question of the thread I am addressing was just about getting the first post with what they thought was a witty
star generating one liner. *think youtube effect*
I still stand by saying, Nobody here should feel ashamed. That's just silly. In all honesty if you are starting to feel that way maybe it's time to
step back from the ATS and take a break. Not inferring you must agree with everyone here or like what they say. Yes you will run into things that
offend you. but again no reason to be ashamed, as there is no honor bestowed upon being a member here it's not selective. It's a microcosm of the
In closing even if you were swayed by the actions of member on an internet forum, how could you be ashamed of a few dozen people at max, when the vast
majority of ATS membership is of quality?
I'd say the quality folks far out weigh the [snipped]-nozzles.
