Conspiracy Theories And Professional Discussion The Norm At AboveTopSecret.com


www.examiner.com


“Deny Ignorance” is the motto at AboveTopSecret.com, the nation's largest internet forum dedicated to conspiracy theories and other alternative topics. ATS is home to almost 202,000 members who have generated almost 10 million posts covering 595,277 topics. Co-Owner Mark Allin was the first-hour guest on Sunday night's Coast to Coast radio program.

This is refreshing! Its not often that we see AboveTopSecret in the "news".

Thinking of all of you here at ATS - and our online community! Cheers!



One would think that with so many members, who come from all over the world, and the diversity of topics, this forum would not be a place for the average forum participant to visit. Yet these discussions are surprisingly professional, intelligent and respectful.



Too often we here at ATS and conspiracy theorists in general get the raised eyebrow due to our eager scrutiny of world wide news and events.
So its nice to see this, and I would have to agree here:



But the most attractive feature of AboveTopSecret.com is the environment:

We refuse to allow short "drive-by" posting that adds nothing to the thread.

We refuse to allow insults and mayhem that you'll see on many other boards.

We refuse to allow spam and hate speech.
We promote intelligent posting.

We promote productive debate and collaborative discussion.

We promote the examination of any topic as long as manners are maintained.

We respect the content of other sites and encourage linking.

We respect our members' content and defend its credibility and their rights.








Thank you ATS!

I hate to say it, but it seems the fragrant use of the ' T & C " rules has become the motto or excuse used by all~ Kinda like the USG using the " National Security " excuse~

Well thats the norm for a tiny minority, The vast majority of others here are the best.
I tend to think of it like this...

The Cream Rises To The Top

Consider it an exercise in patience and virtue.

I had to check that the citation was from this year.

I can't believe it and know that it's untrue.

R.I.P. Good investigators who stood by what ATS claims to be.

You made it what it is and now you are of no longer use.

Yep ATS is great and has been my home for 5-6 years now... Best source of news ever.


Great topics, great minds, great debates... Almost no sheeple... I would say this is one of the best websites on the net.

Fantastic guys!!!

I am not surprised though.

I knew the very first time I logged onto this site many years ago that something very special and powerful was underway here.

It has only sky-rocketed in popularity since then!

Kudos to the admin and staff, and kudos to all the kick-ass members here for making this site the juggernaut which it is, and which it will continue to build upon in the coming future!

Well over the last few months I have seen Main Stream media picking up stories from ATS


But this notoriety comes with a price...

More will flock to join..

Good for business... but it means more repeat topics, more trolls, etc

Pass onto others that which was imparted onto us ... so evolves awareness.

Plus, you're famous now.

Very cool find! I love it!

ATS has been nearly a daily habit of mine for over 5 years. No other site measures up.

i beleive the old guys and gals are the real reason this site works
the influx of neebies is good for both them and the vets
why
when you share info and ideas everybody wins
i have found some neebies are really good teachers and have really good ideas
the world veiw IS changing thanks to the patience and knowledge of the vets and neebies alike

when ATS did the face book thing i was scared of change
now i recognise that new ideas and members refreash my interest
and i can help get the important stuff to the masses
