I apologize if this is the wrong forum for this. Please move to appropriate area if so.
I've noticed a strange phenomenon here at ATS. While the slogan here is "deny ignorance" it seem the predominant mood is "attack those who are/may
be ignorant". You see, we are all ignorant about things. No one person is the holder of all the knowledge but many hold parts of the collective
knowledge. Great thing about sites like this we can share. That said we ALL have preconceived ideas, notions, prejudices and faulty leaps in logic. We
can try to be blank or neutral but we really aren't. The only way to fix this is to be educated. What is the best way to be educated? Asking
So, why is it that when someone asks questions here they usually (not always...some members here are great and patient) are immediately attacked for
his/her ignorance? Even if that person is trying to set some group up the answers might educate someone just as ignorant viewing the thread. If the
only response is hostility nobody learns anything with the exception of a lesson in human nature.
I know, I know this is a conspiracy site and people are going to be suspicious and with the battles waged here many will be on the defense too.
Please just remember that every question is not an attack and that a question (no matter how stupid it may seem) might just be an opportunity to help
