I gotta say something here.... I just have to. I thought long and hard about whether I should, but this has just been ugly. I don't mean everyone who
pointed out these are likely rock formations ...but how many were outright mean about it or hard edged to the point of almost cutting with it.
If someone like me or another long term, regular contributor who is known for working a bit on threads posted something as speculative as this is...I
could well see people saying 'Huh??'. However, this isn't a banner WATS contributor with scores of threads for experience and refinement. She's got a
whopping 7 threads since coming here...and pretty well said from the start that it was speculative and asking opinion as much as anything.
Some of the BEST
threads I've found in old ATS archives of messages started like this one, by members who did spend hours going blind on mind
numbing satellite imagery to find something cool to share or just for the joy of finding things.
There have been several threads
...or rants...in recent weeks, complaining about how it's news news news. Nothing but News thread and no one
does anything really nifty and different anymore. When a relatively new member (to writing threads anyway) DOES
do something innovative, the
response is so bad, it wouldn't surprise me if she didn't share much else for a long time.
That's a loss not just for one line of potentially great threads (maybe the next one would be REALLY good... we may not know now?) but how many read
this thread, saw the reaction, and figured... 'Better her than me! I'm not doing that!'?? It just strikes me as ironic, after so many HAVE been
complaining about nothing really original for ideas being posted.
What's more original than the OP spending, who knows how long, on one of the most BORING places on Earth to view satellite imagery for (Believe me..I
know) and then sharing a "Maybe? something? watcha all think?"
