FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SWINDON, UK - April 29, 2004 - The Internet's largest and most popular community dedicated to the discussion of conspiracies, cover ups, scandals and
other "alternative topics" has experienced a new milestone. The core domain, AboveTopSecret.com, has experienced record-breaking traffic and
staggering growth during the month of April, as well as through the previous six months.
The core community, found at www.AboveTopSecret.com/forum, surpassed 500,000 individual messages in April, with an average of 2,000 new messages each
day. A sign of the community's incredible draw is the rate of new member sign-up, an average of 60 new members decide to join the discussion board
every day. And with 800 registered members visiting and collaborating on discussion and debate every day, no wonder so many people decide to join and
In addition to the main domain, the AboveTopSecret.com universe features three additional websites, www.BelowTopSecret.com, www.ATSNN.com, and
www.TerrorAnalysis.com. The combined traffic figures for the AboveTopSecret universe set new records. During the month of April, over 460,000 unique
users visited the core domain and 489,000 visited all of the domains; representing a total of over 7.5 million pages viewed. This all translates to a
record breaking 220 gigabytes of total bandwidth from the AboveTopSecret domains.
One of the new domains operating in the AboveTopSecret.com universe is the Above Top Secret News Network (www.ATSNN.com), which is a unique
community-driven news portal where any member can create and contribute to breaking news stories. In just four months, the news portal has featured
critical exclusive news stories on the Mars landers, Yellowstone park, new technologies, and stories related to the war on terrorism.
As the world situation continues to be one of stressful speculation and doubt, no wonder people are turning to alternative sources to learn more about
current events, and the historical factors than influence them. Typically, online communities have been quirky places where unreliable material is
presented as fact. Simon Gray, founder of AboveTopSecret.com, believes his site's success is due to an underlying desire to maintain a higher level
of credibility and reliability. The motto, "deny ignorance", addresses this desire, and inspires members to search diligently for the truth and
subject every theory to intense analysis.
Looking forward, AboveTopSecret.com is not simply settling in on it's success. May will see the launch of a new world-wide event called "Find The
Rings" (www.FindTheRings.com) where a mysterious grand prize promises that winners will be "captains of enlightenment." Members all over the world
will be able to collaborate and participate in this unique event that is designed to compliment and enhance the community spirit.
AboveTopSecret.com and the associated universe of domains are owned by Simon Gray and hosted out of Texas, USA. For more information about
