Our valued members would read the post before starring and flagging. The front page is littered with garbage cuz, someone may have read an enticing headline but if they would have read on....they would have realized it was just crap, that is not worthy of place on the front page.

Seriously, I want to scream right now.

I guess your going to have to just scream.

People can't help themselves. They see a headline that they "Think" is headline news for ATS and they bust their @$$es to get it posted. Sometimes I think that they are in such a hurry to get a thread started that they don't even read the article.

What I find interesting is that people look everywhere for news before they look on ATS and that would account for probably 75% of posts that are duplicated. Sometimes 2-3 or even more times, and sometimes even days later we are seeing duplicate posts.


This is just something that is going to happen. It is in their nature to do so.

Well, stars and flags are free, so if people want to give them away to unworthy posts, it is their choice....which is exactly why I didn't star and flag yours. A small paragraph complaining about how members reward other members is simply sour grapes.

The best way to raise the bar is by doing it yourself.

Dude, I was not pimping myself out for flags and stars. I am complaining about the stars and flags on a post that claims Al Queda can now make bombs out of their clothes?

Don't even reply. I really don't care.

That crap is embarrassing.

Whatever, I am making a big deal out of nothing. I feel like complaining. At least I am over here in the rant section. Did I mess up your day?? Or did you just drive by to roll your eyes at me??

Figures. Find a life. Take up a hobby. Go swimming. There is so much more gratifying things for you to do than to make a u-turn and come back to this thread.

So what do you think about that??

If this were indeed the case, members have the option to "un-flag" threads

Its the "garbage" on the front page that gets people talking and that is the point of a forum.

Not sure what this is about but I am going to flag and star the s... out of this.

Yeah, and it irritates me that people who have only been signed up on the forum for less than a year, have multiple times the stars and flags that I do from just spamming anything they see in the news on here. Yeah and the whole pandering to the people by telling them what they want to hear in threads..

For the almighty star.

So, if you have been here less than a year, you shouldn't like things because you agree with it or like it? Um....ok. Get to the back of the bus, short timers!

Check this dude: You have to say something interesting or at least something that has merit.

Don't hate.

Trust and believe my leanings are not those of the majority of this club they call ATS.

I am always getting picked on.

You don't hear me whining about stars and flags.

I am getting my butt kicked on 5 different threads right now.

Come join me.
