It is with great pleasure and anticipation of fantastic things to come, that we have the honor of announcing
involvement with us here on AboveTopSecret.com.
There is a very short list of serious conspiracy theorists with the talent, intelligence, and style to capture the attention of both conspiracy
aficionados and the average "Joe" alike. Not only is Mr. Marrs firmly on that list, he is arguably at the top, being perhaps the only pure
conspiracy theorist, dealing in topics from alien cover ups to the JFK assassination, who is also a New York Times best-selling author.
His involvement here at AboveTopSecret.com represents a cornerstone of our longer-term plans to be the epicenter of the best and brightest conspiracy
shatter the boundaries of "User Generated Content" online. While he is interacting with us here, he will also be writing an
upcoming book about several interesting and important threads... your interaction will undoubtedly help shape the project... and after you read the
book, you can return here to ask him about what he wrote.
Mr. Marrs is the first to join us in a new class of members we're calling "Conspiracy Pros." These are people who's primary source of livelihood
comes from their involvement in the topics we discuss here on ATS. As you can expect, these are busy people with several overlapping projects and they
will not have the time to visit us every day. So with that in mind, there are some necessary ground rules:
1) Conspiracy Professionals Are Our Honored Guests:
We anticipate our members will interact with our professional collaborators in a manner that exemplifies the best attributes of ATS and "deny
ignorance" and the intelligence of our membership. We reserve the right to remove questions or comments we feel are not up to the expectations of
high standards within this forum.
2) Post-Count Limitations:
We've agonized over several ways to prevent a deluge of questions and threads, from accepting applications to random drawings... and none seem fair.
As a result, we've settled on a revised
requirement of 250 posts
for ATS members to be able to participate in the "View From
3) New Question Limitations:
We've had several conversations with Mr. Marrs, and he's a genuinely gracious and very likable guy... if he sees 50 questions, he's going to try
his best to answer all 50... and that's not fair to his other responsibilities. For now, we're going to limit new questions
to an average of
10-12 per week. Over time, this may change as he falls into his "ATS rhythm," but we think it's a good place to start. This includes both new
threads, and follow-up questions on existing threads. And please be focused and limit your questions to just one or two per post.
These are very basic guidelines for kicking this off. We expect that any ATS member with 500 or more posts will have the wherewithal to notice the
pace of the discussions in this forum and hold off on new questions if you see 10 waiting for an answer. Both we and Mr. Marrs hope that we can
eventually loosen these requirements, but for now, it's a starting point.
