Hey everyone.

As you can see I'm a long time member. Never really posted, and haven't been on this account since 04 until today. I've been a consistent lurker for many years though, but now I feel the urge to be active. I've watched this forum grow from the sidelines, and while there are some negatives I have seen, there are also many positives to such a large community.

See you all around

Let me be the first to welcome you back to an active status then.

I look forward to learning your opinion on many topics.

Or the second, as it were.

AboveTopSecret is much like a theme park with many, many 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, also known as ATS, the world's largest Civil & Unique Discussion Community.

*** Please be sure to be at least this tall to get on any of the rides, (Johnny stretches his arm outward), and act like an 'civil' adult. This will save you a lot of future stress, frustration and possible action by one of your friendly neighborhood Mods!

*** 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 that may be contrary to your own.

*** Please be "open-minded" enough to understand that sometimes the ride isn't always what you might think or 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! Be aware if you act in an uncivil-like manner, use profanity, intentionally spread a hoax and/or get verbally abusive, you will be removed off the ride by a Moderator. This is for your safety, & 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"...!

Thanks for the welcome Johnny.


I know, it is quite strange isn't it? I have always enjoyed this place for the content and opinions it brings from all over the world. It really helps you look at things from different perspectives.

For starters, I joined the Marine Corps shortly after signing up here on ATS. I never really had a lot of time to participate with my deployments to the sandbox and Afghanistan so I lurked here whenever I got the chance, just to catch up on some reading to see what's been kept out of the news back home by the media. Being recently discharged after my reenlistment, I decided that since I have the time now that I might as well be an active member here, maybe give my two cents here and there.

Well we certainly are glad to have you back, and I'm sure many members here would want to say thank you for your service. Our Co-Host for the ATSLive radio Show was a Marine and he also hosts the Survival Forum located here: Survival Tactics and Supplies.

His ATS handle is SemperFortis..

Greetings:

2003!

You must have a vast, valuable bank of knowledge on the growth pains of, IMHO,
the best learning experience on the InterWeb - ATS.

That might be a good thread in itself to lure other "oldtimers" to share the wealth of experience...

Welcome back and we look forward to further communication.

Were you involved in the recent tornado outbreak?

Peace Love Light

That I do


That's a good idea, I might have to consider that one

Luckily I was not. I live in Chicago now so I was well out of the way. I feel so bad for the people hit though. FEMA won't even be on the ground to help until tomorrow I heard.
