There has been some speculation,
in this thread
, about the nature of the black band adorning the forum logo on
AboveTopSecret.com. This, combined with a sad pose from our new super hero mascot has caused some consternation among members. Well, I'm at fault,
because I wanted your attention.
I can safely say, the most enjoyable and gratifying times in my on-again off-again conspiracy theory interest has been here as a member and eventually
staff. While I tend not to become involved in much of the discussion lately, I take a great deal of satisfaction of having some small role in helping
to make sure discussion and hopefully discovery happen.
These days, however, I mourn.
We fortunate few here in these forums have aspired to be different. A theme has been adopted, "deny ignorance," that for many of us means we try
harder. But we we're wrong. We are not different. We are subject to the same shame as everyone else.
We have allowed the sickness of petty political bickering to find a foothold and cause a widespread infection. "Deny Balance" should be the new
motto, as right-blaming-left and left-blaming-right is pervasive throughout the board.
Make no mistake, you are being expertly controlled. Even here, in this venue that should be beyond the puppet masters' strings, we have succumbed to
the subtle manipulations of thought and reason. Instead of looking in agner toward the puppet masters, you yell at the puppets.
ATS has fallen. We're not out, but we're mortally wounded.
It is indeed, a sad day.
