My two cents is probably neither wanted or needed, but that's never stopped me before.
When you consider the depth and bredth of material covered on this website, everything from serious UFOology to the thought that the local Dairy Queen
is a Masonic front for world domination, we do NOT have it badly at all.
I haven't been here since day one, but I got here as quickly as I could when I heard about it. I've watched the growing pains, and occasionally
been a pain, myself. However, Above Top Secret, is still one of the, if not the best website of this nature in existence. Things won't always go
the way you want, and you may, on occasion, become extremely irritated about the way things are handled (ask me about the Fair Skepticdebacle),
but all-in-all, it is even handed, and allows for a greater accuracy in skimming the cream from the milk.
The truly cool thing is we all have a voice here, and an opportunity to make claims, valid and ludicrous, and then have the chance to defend or define
them. I don't even feel badly about my Fair Skeptic post, herein, which occurred several years ago.
The guys who own the place (you know who they are) and the moderators (you know some of them, doubtlessly) do an overall great job of handling things,
even with all their human flaws and conditions.
John Lear will float to the surface somewhere else, or here, if he can get a mature handle on things. So, it's not like he was banned from ever
posting anything here or elsewhere, ever again.
I don't care if I'm the last word, or not. I just want us all to stop and take a second and consider where we have been, where we are, and where we
are going, and then get on with it.
Thanks to all involved in creating, growing, and running this ATS Critter. It wouldn't exist without your continuing efforts, and I, for one, enjoy
it enough to say so.
Now... Back to those evil Dairy Queen Masons and their attempt to rule the world!
