I wanted to pop in and say — THERE IS HOPE!!!
We have some AMAZING people leading and helping!
Didn’t have time to read comments in this thread, for the last 6 hours or so.
I knew many were looking for an update.
Apologies for the glumness earlier.

I (honestly) do not mean to cast negative ions on the party. I have concerns. Why did Howard Hughes leave or not leave his business empire to a random man that picked him up hitchhiking? Where was the planning regarding the empires future? I want to continue to be a part of a future I helped to define just as 1000's of others have also done.

You don’t seem to understand. There is NO alternative.

Stop living in the delusional world, that free speech will simply reinvent itself. Censor, censor censor....

You could just avoid the pit. But you can’t do that — you’ve got to snivel about it.

I avoid it and damn well know that it dominates this site. Yet.......here I am trying to save it!

Do you have a purpose? Do you create? Or do you just snivel about others creations?

Because this ATS isn’t the empire it was made out to be. All I it is now, is just a community of really good people (for the most part)

Free speech is under attack. Forums such as this are critical to that free speech.

Sure. Absolutely. A simple Anonymous Nation State that is under threat of dissolution (cause) no fresh Lamas rising from the Monks pledged to the Monastery. This may be the first attempt ever to save a virtual nation of vast opinions/points of view. The virtual version of the United States of America.

Stop right there, mister.

The guy has a point about the downturn. My concern isn't whether or not you guys obtain ownership of the site, but it's that if you do, are you all willing to commit to weeding out the toxicity and return it to its former glory? If lost cause antiques/vintage stuff can be restored to working order, then this site can surely be polished up and returned to that heyday glory.
With staff commitment.
Are you all game for that? Because if you're not, you're just wasting the financial investment to watch lowbrow partisan turds keep on flying.

So you're calling for censorship. There are many posters here whom I see as negative and I disagree with their view points, HOWEVER, I am an advocate of free and open speech and do not support the removal of anyone based simply upon my or anyone's dislike of them.

I appreciate an alternate point of view and especially if it gives me consideration to change my current view for that is truly the essence of evolution. The mods have been good about weeding out legitimate trolls for the most part.

Reread and truly listen to what you just said.

Is our entire world at its glory? Even close?

You post here OFTEN for a reason.

Do not discredit the efforts of private individuals — trying to keep your free speech platform alive.

If you don’t like the Pit — don’t click on it. Pure and simple.

Well, you can claim the house has every right to burn down as is pleases, but it's generally better for the people residing in it, to put out the fire and fix the damage. Otherwise it's just a shell of it's former self, and no one wants to bunk in that.

If you didn't know the vintage ATS, you don't really understand what's been lost.

I didn't say get rid of the Pit. I wouldn't mind seeing it poof, but I didn't say that. What I implied, and probably should have said, was more attentive moderation where applicable. SUCH AS, outside of the Pit, instead of removing entire posts with one smarmy line in it, but otherwise good content, just remove the smarm.

Jesus people, if you can't manage that simple of a procedure shift that meets everything in the middle, then why bother taking it on in the first place?

Interestingly enough a few of the more vocal members here that have signed up at that other site are there complaining about the lefties on this site, they really can't handle their world views being challenged.

Can't we get a grant? Can't we get a minority or woman involved?

Better to be in the house than outside in the rain.

Don't blast me. I mean this sincerely. Do we have any grant writers?

I love ATS since around 2011. i love you people. Please, please....I need you.

WTF are you talking about?

Please DO emerge out of your moms basement.

While you were playing video games — the adults are in deep efforts to save this place.

You have NO CLUE what is going on behind the scenes.

I think Fortnite is calling you...

So are we getting true free speech once it is taking over or do we still have to submissively follow local jurisdiction and/or T&Cs and have the same limited free speech fairytale?

Because ATS is not 'my' (as some mention 'your') free speech website as there are many topics that I can not discuss on here. It's the right of the owners to have these limitations and you would not hear me complain about it (other than now) or mention the topics. That's just a matter of respect and I'll discuss that in the places where I am allowed to do so. But ATS simply never was and I don't expect it will be a haven for free speech. As I simply do not expect it to go full anon decentralized out of any jurisdiction.

Btw the way the posts that criticize the plans are met shows. Do not criticize the ones keeping it alive. Loud and clear.

Simmer down, your biz group forum is not the one he's talking about.

Edit: You also just accidentally proved my point about snipping out the unwarranted swipes/smarm stuff from posts instead of removing the whole thing. Though it'd be a thin remaining post...

nevermind. i found SO's announcement thread. this is depressing.

I have not been on this site in a long time. actively at least. I hope someone can save the site. its nice to come in now and again. if this site ever fades away, it will be missed. loved reading all the threads once upon a time.

hope when i pop in again in a few months that the site is still here.
