Dear ATS members,
This is becoming a common thing. Something kicks off, captures the imagination of half of the community and suddenly we have a 1,000 threads on it. Each of less and less quality - Not very well thought out, no evidence, no new train of thought to debate, just a new thread on the same topic discussing the same thing. Some things got to be done.
It would be unwise for ATS to "cap" the number of threads allowed on certain issues, so i would propose that members have to petition the site to open up certain threads with certain views on the topic which can therefore be discussed by all members.
As a British person
i have not been swept up in the whole zimmerman thing because its always struck me as just a normal news story - Terrible things things, every day, in every corner of the world. I think its strange how many American members of this board have become hypnotized by the whole event. Do you even realize how irrational you sound when you're foaming at the mouth and proclaiming this and that without any actual evidence to support your claim?
Anyway, Im gonna log off ATS for a week or so until this pathetic circus pisses off.
The last thing to take over these boards was the Boston Marathon Bombing, wasnt that back in may? How long are other ATS members going to have to keep suffering so many poor threads regarding one subject?
