The old "Above Top Secret" page was deleted in a proposed deletion. The deletion was approved by an administrator after 5 days, so obviously no one disagreed enough to contest the deletion. It was deleted under the reason "No evidence that this Internet forum meets our website notability guidelines". Keyword here is "evidence": there was probably no proof of notability. You can't just make an article about a website that sounds notable. You need references and specific points within the article that show its importance. It's exactly how you need to back up your words here on ATS.
His depression provoked a suicide attempt in May 2004, describing his experience in a post made on the website Above Top Secret:
I had went through a lot of things in my life that had driven me to a darker path than most choose to take. I split the flesh on my wrist with a box opener, painting the floor of my bedroom with blood I shouldn't have spilt. After sitting there for what seemed like hours (which apparently was only minutes), I had the revelation that this was not the path. It was my decision to seek medical treatment, as on the other hand I could have chose to sit there until enough blood drained from my downward lascerations on my wrists to die.

I may have missed it, but I haven't seen the pages for ATS actually show up in that archive. I've just gone through all of April 2006, when it was deleted, and found no discussion reference to it.
