You might want to lead your discussions with why you believe in such and such. The majority of people here have already seen many of the theories which are presented, so we are used to seeing similar theories posted over and over. We already know both sides of the discussion so if you want to tread water, you will have to make your threads full of your evidence for why you believe in such and such theory, otherwise, you will get heckled.
If you need to see a shrink because your theories are getting in the way of having a healthy productive life, then you should study science more and leave the theories to more experienced researchers.

it may be our generation's (X) fault for not following the example given to us by the one two generations ago...
Well , I had my waterloo in a tread about ME theory. After that I decided to never ever again post something that is important to me. Trolls and Bots rule the net.

Over the years ATS has become a place for people of low IQ and Inferiority complexes, becouse of poor MODs who have very little or no training in how to be a MOD, ATS is now full of groups of people who stick togather to attack others. The good news is that there is still a strong core of high IQ kind people here but for how long I dont know. I belive the MODs have lost the trust of the good people and now surport the low IQ mob. ATS is going down the WC at a fast rate and soon will be a place for CHAVs( as the British say) to hang out attacking anyone with an IQ over 3. Ok thats my rant done , but I do wish the owners would wake up to this and save ATS

I know what you mean. I attribute the change to what usually happens on ATS (or social media in general) during an election year or primary season. Perhaps it's getting worse and the very vile and extreme attacks and attitudes are spreading outwards (and spreading in general throughout society).
It seems to have become very difficult to have a discussion on here without it turning into a sophomoric partisan pissing match that obscures the true, and oftentimes, larger issue.
Just choose your threads and your words carefully, try to prevent pathos from entering your responses and arguments, breathe, and learn when to leave a thread.
