The Chat area remains an appropriate section for discussing any topic you please. You're certainly free to discuss anything you like in Chit Chat as
long as you comply with ATS's "Conditions of Use" policy written by Simon: xmb.abovetopsecret.com...
However, as we've seen recently, some topics run their course, and our moderators choose to lock or delete if warrented. It's the job of the
moderators to maintain a general tone and "flavor" that defines Above Top Secret. From time to time, it may seem unfair to see a favorite thread
locked or removed, but you can be certain it is for a reason. For example, some threads attract a high quantity of unsavory posts that must be
deleted, when this becomes too tedious, the thread is locked or removed. When this happens, it's very likely you will not actually see these
Bob88 and I have been asked by Simon to help maintain the site while he cannot. We're not here to change the intent of ATS, or modify the type
community Simon designed. Adding a new "free for all" forum is altering Simon's original intent for ATS.
With the help of our moderators, we're doing our best to keep ATS a premier destination for educated discussion of conspiracy related topics... not
another discussion forum with a subculture of flame artists.
