, let me repeat that.
THIS SITE IS BIG AND IT TAKES A LOT OF RESOURCES TO KEEP RUNNING.
DO YOU UNDERSTAND THAT? DO YOU?
Then stop what you are doing, RIGHT NOW, and disable your ad blocking software. Simply click "Disable ad-blocking on abovetopsecret.com"
There. Now, Don't you feel better? You did your little part. And even though that may still not be enough in the long run, at least you did that. And it would also help to actually CLICK on an ad that interests you either once in a while and go check it out.
I placed this in this forum so that non-members will see this as well. Considering that some 75% or more of hits (according to management) are from non-logged in members or non-members, it would seem prudent to do so. Consider it Education of the masses that Media costs money. Nothing is free forever. Except maybe air. And who knows how long that will last either.
And to all you takers out there, yeah the ones that always just read and never or hardly ever start threads, how about considering contributing a thread once in a while? It takes that too to keep this site running. Or are you just going to keep taking and taking until there is nothing left to take? New trees have to be planted or the forest will die. So help. HELP, dammit. Stop just reading, and actually go out and get an interesting topic and bring it here, or write one yourself. Let's keep this site alive. At least, that's the way I feel. It is worth it.

Come on all! The adds are not that bad- look at the trade to be on the best site for conspiracy and general knowlage sharing!

I came back from years of hiatus to nothing but ads, ads and more ads. I even had to get rid of an ad just to type in my password!

Curiously, since this ridiculous brouhaha started, I've begun to have a problem with pop-ups in FF.
We don't serve pop-ups, especially to logged-in members.
