Slamming my head against a wall. It's so hard to come on to ATS and enjoy reading things when every other thread is comprised of mindless
regurgitation of stupidity. When someone brings up an idea that could be plausible, but is factually incorrect, they continue to be ignorant to the
facts disproving their theory. They just continue to attack everyone who tries to tell them they are wrong.
And that's another thing! Unabashed hatred for no reason. I'm not saying that someone's opinion is wrong in any way, but when said person makes a
thread with the sole focus of bashing something but hides it, quite horribly, behind something else, it's rather annoying. Some people, I think, just
come here to attack others because they have a personality complex. They have to feel like a big man/woman somewhere, right? Why not behind a keyboard
through the anonymity of the internet?
Oh! What the hell is with all the "fad threads?!" Why does everyone feel the need to beat the dead horse. At the cost of sounding silly, beaten dead
horse is beaten and dead. When I see the hot topics on the main site, I usually take a gander at them and see what they're all about. Most times,
they're something original. And sometimes they can be very controversial. That's all well and fine. Stick it to that one thread and leave it there.
We don't need 1000 clones of that thread to be made that eventually lead to incredulous amount of idiocy and making the subject become a sore spot
that the mods will pay closer attention to and result in possibly more bans.
And is it just me, or does it seem that a majority of the ATS user base are becoming more and more paranoid every day? In some threads, it just seems
so obvious that the OP is grasping for straws and seeing shadows around every corner. Some things brought up as a government conspiracy are not what
they seem. This can go back to doing research for facts before posting about something. If your facts are not straight, you'll come off as a paranoid
moron looking for spooks in his/her closet.
I may not be the shining example of what I'm ranting about. In fact, there have been times when I've let either my emotions or boredom control me
and lead me to posting something stupid. I know we're all human and subject to human error. But sometimes, I just wish people would use their brain
when posting here. It seems like some users just don't have the ability to do that. I would give examples, but I'm not wanting to really highlight
anyone. The list would be too long, really.
Maybe I just need to step away from ATS. Take a long hiatus and come back to see if people have mellowed out and smartened up. But I doubt it.
There's a conspiracy everywhere.
