Atheists are useful idiots

Christians are Brainwashed Lunatics

(Introduction) Hi! I am Alien time traveler from Vela Ra, allow me to enlighten you!

I have recreated ancient Egyptian high technology through the power of salvia and meditation,.. maaaan.


I feel like chicken tonight,… like chicken tonight.

A flying carpet seen in 911 building collapse video proves Islamic connection!!!! (Video!)

This and many other ideas and philosophies have become the staple of ATS forums lately.
In order to contribute what I suppose ATS considers “Decent Material” to this site, you must do one of the following things.

1. Cause people to fight, and openly encourage trolls.

2. Insult other users of ATS in order to make a point, and get noticed.

3. Make statements that are so utterly freaking retarded as to be borderline………..Retarded. (like this statement)

4. Tell everyone who doesn’t believe your BS story that they are a closed minded fool.

5. Post video of things and claim they are something, when they are not, thereby causing every normal human being to facepalm themselves and hang their head in shame at the concept.

6. Introduce yourself on ATS by sneakily turning it into an off topic thread. … Very clever.

7. Create a onetime official ATS horoscope thread.

8. Create a thread wherein you will guess the height and weight of an individual.

9. And maybe,…just maybe, create a thread bitching about all the other pointless and potentially IQ reducing threads that are sprouting up on ATS message boards.

You get the point? The list can go on and on. I have seen in the last few years ATS go from being a decent website where you could proudly be mocked, shunned, and ridiculed for your belief.
To a place where you ONLY get mocked, shunned, and ridiculed for your belief but without the added courtesy of the mental and emotional,…(Can I say this on thread?) …Reach Around.

I will be the first to admit, I am no gem thread starter, and in fact I rarely have enough time to contribute to ATS, though in a stunning turn of events I actually spent 12 hours on here the other night.

ATS is becoming rife with (Alternative Pop Culture).

Wait,…what? Snowen20 in order to deny ignorance why don’t you tell us all what alternative pop culture is, because we at ATS are rational, and of a higher order of intellect. Uhm, okay I’ll do that.

My Definition: (Alternative Pop culture)
(The attitudes and behavior that are characteristic of a particular social group or organization participating in alternative media.)

What does this mean?
Well it means the following:
A well thought out thread or threads that someone took the time to research and share with ATS gets (almost immediately) pushed to absolute obscurity, and or mediocrity, while threads with titles more fitting for weekly world news or latest celebrity tabloid Hook Line and Sink every hapless thread user on this site.

I was going to give actual examples, but because I actually attempt to follow ATS T&C policy/ manners and decorum I will not give names or actual thread titles.. I think everyone is smart enough to know exactly the kind of scenario I am talking about.


How to be famous indeed!
ATS notoriety comes at the barrel of an alien plasma rifle powered by the spirit of Prince William, unicorn Farts, and overarching insults to your intelligence.
I have been on this site since 2005, and relogged in 2008. I have taken this site seriously for the most part as a place where one could disseminate the lies and propaganda which endlessly flow from MSM.
I always tried to be polite, and even now I’m maintaining manners in not exposing the type of threads specifically. I am not a writer, I am not a philosopher, and I am not overly intelligent. I am normal, and I am REAL. When I contribute, I honestly attempt to find something that I feel may interest ATS.

There are several threads where I bitch, one where I complain, and one where I thought, “Ahh screw it lets just write some BS and cash in on it flag wise.” Hence the thread “The Twilight Zone, A Chilean Miner Rescue and one BIG FAT QUESTION” Amazingly enough I actually got 33 flags for that utter nonsense.
This is not about me, it is about everyone on ATS who has ever attempted to contribute, and taken time out of their day to try and improve a website they enjoy, and been passed over for “Madonna cooking her baby in a microwave.”
I have to ask myself what is it I am doing when I sit for an hour writing a thread, and researching information, and compiling it in a way that is easy to read and understand.

There is a trend on ATS, and it goes like this.
Everyone who proclaims they are awakened, everyone who mocks “sheeple” are in essence just as guilty as blindly following popularity as all those people out there in the world so many of us complain about.
The herd mentality does not stop at the doorstep to ATS but rather continues all the way up into the very posts people apply to threads.

Have a nice day.

So this is more less criticism of the various ATS posters and how they flagg and star hunt instead of content seek. I see. I am guilty sometimes of not producing the fine content needed but do try to keep it in the ATS norms if they exist. when I first came here the feeling was like WOW this is an amazing site from ALL the data I was processing. Now you gotta let a few days go by sometimes for some reasonable content to surface. Otherwise its like you said religious hate political bs or outright fringe disrespect, for attention. ATS still has good energy with it it may have influences "NEW" that wish to lower its credibility due to it opening too many eyes. And there basically is nothing ATS can do (if that's the case) except wait????

Interesting post and makes sense S&F

I am guilty of this too, and in fact I hope people notice that I am in a way ridiculing myself.
I don't blame people for not content seeking, honestly mindless entertainment is just that, entertainment. Watching debates turn into tiny fights between truthers and Os believers is fun. Watching Atheists and Christians duke it out id fun, watching people claim they are squirrel monkeys that's also fun.

But i was just beginning to wonder if this site was about fun, or quality content. know what im saying?

Yes I do I think its still about its original agenda. See whats on the minds of those who think different and see if anything useful can be extracted from them. Also to see if there is inknown data out there or data too sensitive for public eye. So I feel more like its about quality content still its just managing so it seems. If it is fun I would imagine there is a new more advanced secret above top secret an SATS
somewhere for the more advanced minds..

Is this thread about self loathing and pity

I like your attitude ... looking pass the surrounding BS and making your own way (which is based on information u acquired) .. something like late George Carlin.

There does seem to be a form of content deferment to more advanced sections of ATS where in the "riff raff" is kept out. Etc. WATS and RATS. unfortunately for all of us who have been here just as long as the elite members and have not received our fair share of flag CRACK to give us the boost into the upper echelons of godhood in the ranks of ATS, We are screwed.
It's like someone stopping me at the door and asking me if I need help, "No, Im just going to participate inside"..
The guy then smugly laughs while looking me up and down and then says, "Perhaps you should leave before we have to have you escorted off property."

Yes ,..yes that's my analogy!

I agree with this thread; I dislike strongly the fact that some ATS users look down upon other members, and sometimes in my opinion, say very rude and uncalled for things to them. I think it is possible for us to correct someone without being rude. If I have the knowledge on a certain topic, and another person on here makes a statement that is completley incorrect, I won't be rude about it, I try to politley let them know the facts, and encourage them to go and learn more on their own. I would hope others here would do the same for me. S&F

I think the admins are restructuring the flagging procedure...

According to SkepticOverlord:

Originally posted by SkepticOverlord
We've said it countless of times, and it seems we need to continue saying it over-and-over, just to stem the tide (not eliminate) of those who assume "someone" at "ATS" is "controlling" the content.

The site is programmed in such a way that even I, the person who programmed it, cannot dictate which topics appear where on all the pages that aggregate the top-flagged and most-replied threads. For example, these pages:
Site Home
Top Topics (most-flagged)
Hot Topics (most-replied)
30-day Overview (most-flagged & most-replied)
ATS Real-Time (time-sensitive new threads)

DISCLAIMER: However, there have been rare occasions where an extremely important thread/topic was hard-coded into one of the top-two positions on the site home -- typically because of very hot thread (such as the Japan earthquake) or a sponsored thread as a companion to an ad campaign (such as the werewolf topic not long ago). But in the handful of these cases, we made it clear what was happening.

That being said, we (staff) have from time to time discussed the issues members raise about flagging on ATS, and the occasional topic that receives a high amount of flags, which then turns out to be not what everyone expected -- such as the recent "I am a scientist" hoax.

The flagging system is intended to provide our members with a rather significant tool to "crowd source" the editorial management of topics on ATS. With that "members in control" intent in mind, we (ATS staff and management) would never consider inappropriately subverting or otherwise influencing the system.

However, we (staff) do realize ATS has experienced some rather significant evolution since the flagging system was first introduced, and we often discuss possible alterations. Since the core ideal is to ensure our members only flag that which is important to them, change is often resisted. But, it's being discussed again and the possibility of refinement is on the table. I can't promise what form it might take, or if there will be any change at all -- only that we recognize some of the concerns and are considering potential alterations.

Stay tuned.

So ya...things will be changing soon...and then we can have threads about how that new way sucks and the old way of random flagging was soo wonderful as it gave a chance for all sorts of new and wacky ideas to hit the top.

incidently, is the redneck vampire related to batboy? now that is a topic worthy of front page
