Hello! I am very excited to become a member. This seems like a forum with minimal amounts of hate and discrimination so that's pretty amazing for opinionated ladies like me. So have no problem letting everyone know, I am a 25 year old girl from Canada, I read everyday, I watch a little tv, play quite a bit of xbox, and I try to take an interest in new things. I read a large amount of true crime, fiction, and non-fiction books about random things (for example, I just finished a book about American Sideshows, which lead to me watching both seasons of Carnivale). That's about it! I hope I can find some forums that have the same interests as mine

Stand for what you believe in, and you shouldn't have TOO many problems...

Just remember this: For every person who agrees with you, someone else will try to rip you down. This site will test your resolve until you're weak at the proverbial knees.

Having said that...enjoy your stay.

Welcome to the jungle!

ATS is a little intimidating at first. When I first started posting my hands would shake!
Then I got so courageous that I started posting on The Huffington Post, until the answers to my comments came directly to my E-mail! Swcrew That! I'm sticking with ATS!

Cheers, see ya on the boards.

Oh my gosh, please don't be intimidated! Most folks here are friendly and welcoming! I am glad you enjoy reading, cause there is a lot of it to be done here, we get some amazing writers posting some awesome stuff. The range of topics and the level of debate can be extreme at times, but the majority of people are seekers and lovers of all things unusual and out of the mainstream, so as long as that type of thing interests you, you're in the right place.

Welcome LMNIAB, the appearance of little hatred etc is down to a majority of free speaking free thinking and respectful members we have here along with the great work the mods do

Enjoy your stay

Welcome, there are only a few intimidating super brainy people on here. It seems many here are drunk. We do have racists and nationalists but are good at tolerating them.

Welcome to ATS , enjoy the ride but remember to keep your sense of humor close to hand

Dont be intimidated most people on here are pretty respectful, the terms and conditions ensure a certain level of decency. Enjoy your time

Wow thanks everyone. I didn't expect posts so fast! I just went out for a smoke and came back to a bunch of nice things. I see there's a forum for writers and that excites me greatly. Also I am a HUGE Fallout fan (boarders on obsessive). I am a HUGE fan of the idea of a post- apocalyptic wasteland with people fending for themselves. I'm sure there are others out there that have the same feeling. And this seems like the place that I would find them. Thanks again guys

What kind of conspiracy related topics do you find most interesting?

posted on Feb, 7 2012 @ 02:28 PM
Welcome aboard!

I like your outfit.

They don't usually allow Canadians here so you might keep that kind of quiet.

Just don't take things too seriously.

I have read quite a few books on the Marilyn Monroe death but my main interests are things that are beyond explainable like the dyatlov pass incident. The weirder...the better

Lol I don't know whether to take that seriously or not. Is it because we're better at hockey? j/k

Welcome lilmissnoseinabook to a Disney-like Park for Conspiracy Theorist...!

AboveTopSecret is much like a theme park with a bunch of rides, so with that said...

Here's a few thoughts before getting onto any one of the 1000's of topical rides at Above Top Secret (ATS), the world's largest Civil & Unique Discussion Community.

* Please check out those links posted above before getting on one of the rides. This will save you a lot of future stress, frustration and possible action by one of your friendly neighborhood Mods!

* Please be sure that you act like an 'civil' adult and are at least this tall to get on any of the rides, (Johnny stretches his arm outward).

* Please remember that some members are very passionate and vocal depending on what ride your all on. You should be mentally fit, stable and have a strong stomach for theories, conjecture, research and evidence presented.

* Please be "open-minded" enough to understand that sometimes the ride isn't always what you might expect. Be aware you also might end up learning something new and 'out-of-the-box' before you get off the ride.

* Please note that at times the ride gets overly-heated and "it's strongly suggested" to get off the ride to regroup one's thoughts before continuing. This will also help guarantee that the ride will move forward without getting derailed or explode into a fiery trashbin.

* Please have fun! But be aware that if you act in an uncivil-like manner, use profanity, intentially spread a hoax and/or get verbally abusive, you will be removed off the ride by a Moderator. This is not only for your safety, but also for those both young and old on the ride with you.

So buckle up, keep your arms within the ride's comfort zone, have fun and "Deny Ignorance"...!

you will be fine as long as you don't mention Jesus... that is unless you are hating on him, then you will be the most loved and popular one here.

what's really ironic about it is that most who hate him say that he does not exist, but how can you hate something that does not exist?
