    This site is extremely biased. If an open discussion cannot be held, then what purpose does this site serve?

    Compulsory? Yes. There are many that feel this way, but will not post here, because of the hatred, and the spew, of the pro ata crowd.

    Those with a contrary point of view get HAMMERED on this site, by those that are immune to any moderation.

    I find this very hard to swallow. If you feel this way and you aren't pro ATA why would you ever pay dues for more of the same????? If it bothers you get out and you won't get hammered for the way you feel.

    Everyone joins under the present set of rules then as soon as they are members they want the rules to change, WHY??????

    Wow didn't someone say.

    "because of the hatred, and the spew, of the pro ata crowd.

    Well you aren't pro ATA and the only one's "HAMMERED" in this thread were "HAMMERED" by you and they were "HAMMERED" and called names just because they posted on the same thread as you. So I would have to say it doesn't seem to matter what your point of view is. You also said "because of the hatred, and the spew" Is that what you are giving BigM and myself is your hatred and spew. I guess it isn't limited to the "pro ATA crowd" now is it.

    Ivanass,

    I don't usually discuss with you. In this case, I will.

    I'm sick of all the NASTY, unmoderated spew on this site.

    You guys want a fight? OK.

    I'll bring myself down to your level. Let's get it on!

    "However, the owners, administrators and moderators are not monitoring or editing the site and are under no obligation to police it for items that some persons may find objectionable."

    If this is true, then how does a thread get censored, and removed?

    At the moment I pushed the button to submit the following post on the compulsory thread, the thread was immediately deleted.

    "When the daily fee was raised, I wondered why. It wasn't needed. So, it must be for a stealthy reason.

    I believe the daily fee was raised with the intention of using these "globally raised" monies for the permanent annual promotion of The Grand (site), only.

    The $100 requirement adds to this progressive offense."


    Persons are getting moderated, AND CENSORED, but only persons with a contrary, yet well presented, view on a subject.

    This, my friends, is very troubling.

    So tell us all if I believe is something and agree with what it stands for. Why would I not defend it from those that want to change it with out a good reason other than to suit themselves?

    Scooterbum,

    Dismissing a radical and hate filled opinion that is absolutely blind to objectivity does not indicate allegiance with one side or another. I am an ATA agnostic currently, open minded enough to be swayed by persuasive factual argument. However, the "anti's" as you put it, seem hell bent on finding a reason to criticize everything ATA. Most of this comes rage comes from the current OH Qaeda crowd, where they preach that ATA is the great evil and does nothing right. This type of fanatical noise makes reasonable people tone deaf to the issue.

    If you want your opinion to be ridiculed, just show people how closed minded and hate filled your position is, and it will happen. It's a self fulfilling prophecy at that point. Adults have adult conversation and treat people with a reasonable degree of respect, even when their opinions differ, you should try it sometime.

    Regards,

    Chip Porter
