Have a look at this thread:
www.abovetopsecret.com...
Now ask yourself how it was off topic to post this on the thread (as you will see my comment has been removed):

This proves nothing at all

If I say the red chicken ate lunch in new york and then 2000 years later people find out that new york use to exist does that prove that the red chicken ate lunch there?[

I was only using the logic in the video to prove that it is flawed.
Is it off topic to post on something like a ufo video and claim that it is a hoax?
Cmon, this is not off topic.

I starred that.

Seemed quite logical and relevant to me

I can only assume its how you "voice" your opinion. You still need to respect someone else's view on the subject regardless if they're out right wrong.

No need to shoot people down, just say " In my opinion i believe........" this way i find you dont come across as a debunker.

There are alot of people on ATS all with their own views and opinions, of course your going to clash. just dont take anything personally. thats how you debate, you challenge people. nothing should ever be taken to heart.

Is that your ENTIRE post? If so, I agree with you. But is there more to your original post?

You should probably take this up with the mod who edited your post.

Cheers, thats because it is relevant.

Im wondering if ATS has an appeal system or something (which i doubt)

Unfortunately not, but, if you want to request that this become a pay site, I'm sure they would be more than happy to set up an appeal!!!

I understand what your saying but thats not rude, its just an opposing view (possibly the icon is rude but cmon)
All posts like this get left alone and i see heaps more rude posts left alone all the time.

Yes i agree.
If that was all that was in your post, it does not make any sense you got it removed. But mayb iy was just a mistake? I have only ever got mine removed when i have gone of topic or got in to a argument with another poster.

You can certainly appeal to the staff. Just write a respectful PM explaining your concerns...

They usually warn you first to get back on topic, unless it is sooo far off topic that they have no choice. I will stick with my first guess about why it got struck down. The mod couldn't follow that analogy.

You should be complaining to the mod via U2U, not starting a thread.

Nevertheless, your remark was on-topic in that you were giving an example of why something is unrelated to the find.

If you reason with a mod and present your argument, politely and tactfully, you will generally get a good response.

Thanks. And I agree completely with you.

Unfortunately, it's not up to us to enforce the rules around here. Sometimes life isn't fair. If I were you, I'd forget about it. We're not always going to agree with mod action, but that's part of participating in a forum where someone else makes the rules.


I got smacked for saying, "do shut up" one time. Since then, I've seen people say, "sit down and shut up" "why don't you shut your mouth" many times and their posts go unchanged. Moderation isn't an exact science. These are fallible human beings behind the mod badges... Allow for imperfection.


Accept it and move on. That's my advice.

I am doing this but as I have no outlet for properly objecting, I figured its a good idea to make a thread. Plus, its the principle.
Cheers for the support

Yeah and because theres nothing you can do about said rules, figured I would make a thread atleast. I know what your saying but its about the principle I guess.
And obviously I will forget about it soon enough.
Yeah I have noticed huge contradiction in mod action. Surely they would have a program that picks out certain words?
Yeah I gotta accept it, but I can still point it out



Thanks for your input and support
