Sure sure... Personal attacks, bypass facts, and ipso facto, you win the argument...

You win the internet

Here's what kills me...isn't it ironic when one of these threads comes up, posters come out of the woodwork to whine about all the political threads, but yet these SAME posters are nowhere to be found on the plethora of other non-political threads here on ATS???

Can anyone say...HYPOCRISY????

I speak from experience too, as I post many, many, threads about non-political things. In fact, most of my OP's are non-political, but I see virtually NONE of the people whining on this thread posting on those threads! Okay, so they don't like my OP's (whatever), but I see the same damn thing on other non-political threads. Further, there are hundreds of OP's here every week about things OTHER than political, but where are these posters who complain??? **crickets**

Soooooo...I can only draw one conclusion from this; the posters whining really just want to whine about something, to opine about the 'old days' and to lament they have nothing to offer. That they've been lost in the past. Whhaaaaa!

Secondly, it doesn't take much of a rocket surgeon to see that many of the so called 'conspiracy' theories of old have been debunked so many times they've worn out the word "debunk". In the modern age of the Interwebz, traditional UFO, bigfoot and so many other conspiracy theories are scientifically debunked in minutes, not weeks like 15 years ago. CCTV cameras abound, smart phones are everywhere and people are using them! The conspiracies of old are dead, like a wooden stake through a vampire's heart! Wake Up!! The new "conspiracy" is government!! The new "conspiracies" ARE politic! AND...those same CCTV cameras, media, smart phones and all other forms of media PROVE it (not debunk it).

So, if you can't get with the times, if you can't accept the the WORLD, then maybe it's YOU who is the problem...and NOT everyone else here!

Lastly, you want to know what I'm sick of??? I am sick and tired of hearing all the whining posts about ..."what happened to the old ATS, whaaaa, it's all politics now!" THAT, is what I'm sick of!

Get with the times, Baby! This IS the new conspiracy!

I miss the old ATS.

I check in once and a while but it's not the same as it once was.

This is my first post in many years.

Thank you for proving my point PRECISELY!!

So, over all those years you chose not to post, there have been tens of THOUSANDS of non-political posts. You chose not to respond to any of those, took the time and effort to post for the first time in "many years" on THIS thread!! Why???

"Woe is me! What happened to the 'Old ATS'???"

I couldn't have summed up an example better than your very post!

Game, Set...and MATCH!

I like cookies!

Seriously though, posts like the OP are like listening to your grandmother lecturing you about how, "when I was a youngster like you (insert yammering about uphill through snow in two directions, etc.)...boy, those were the good ol' days!"

You may have to remind me now and then.

And to the OP directly...

What happened to all the members??

Well, many of them got so thoroughly sick of eating crow for breakfast, lunch, dinner and a midnight snack they simply couldn't take it anymore and went into hiding (as another member also pointed out).

Has there been a decline in membership? I don't know, I see people joining all the time. However, there definitely has been a decline in a certain segment of the membership here...the HARD left. Yes, a number of those members are noticeably missing. I wonder why?

Ego is a helluva drug!

Some people take breaks over the holidays.

Some people visit the UFO section on a regular basis
but I don't comment too much, from experience in
the past has shown that even if something is right
in front with a real conspiracy it is ignored by
a large amount of UFO posters.

Take for instance the Navy officers who witnessed
the Nimitz UFO encounter said that "unknown individuals"
showed up and confiscated the recordings.

Then in 2019 a Navy official confirmed that the footage
released in 2017 by The NYT were real, declassified
but were not cleared for public release.

Look at the video, it is the best you have, and real.
But where is the giant thread celebrating it?

If one does not like politics, don't read the political
threads, how hard is that?

I post on plenty of threads. If it interests me, odds are I'll have something to say.

I don't just hit politics, and I often hit your posts because I like the random chat stuff and cooking.

I like a lot of other topics too.

Of the...SIXTY...threads in the new thread column...there are only...EIGHT...threads about politics...

Very clever.

Right when the corona virus is a hot topic, you decide now is a good time to claim there isn’t many political threads.

Well ... the last potential global pandemic was Spanish in 1918 ... so it would be a hot topic.

But then again, we've only tried to impeach our president 3 other times too, so that might be a topic to talk about, especially as there may be a conspiracy behind the attempt.

If India and Pakistan nuked each other, I'd imagine there'd be lots of threads on that one too.

Wonder how much talk there was about OKC, but that was before my time.

There was a whole forum about 9/11, and I'll bet a bunch of that had politics in it.

ORANGE MAN BAD...WE NEED THE "OLD ATS" (where we felt better about OURSELVES)!!

(...AND, we could hide our radical liberalism!)


ORANGE MAN BAD....(dammit, now we're exposed!! No more cheap shots from the peanut gallery!!)


Sorry folks, the reason you and others may have left is because you can no longer get your liberal cheap shots in on your coveted big foot threads! Oh, and then there's the man-made Global Warming thing! LOL!!

I rest my case.

I know at least one mod has seen this thread. It's not getting canned anytime soon. Why do you think it should be?

Bottom line...who, exactly, wants the "Old ATS" back????

Is there such a thing?

Me seems like it's mostly the liberals !!
