I think it is standard to begin this INTRODUCTION post with the phrase: "I've been lurking for a while." Though, lurking is putting it mildly. Am I the only one that stares at the New Topics fire-hose, salivating, waiting for the next juicy post to come in?

Well, after a couple of years of this ATS obsession, I've decided to join the conversation. So, hi guys!

I am already aware just from being a spectator that there are firm posting standards that keep this site running smoothly (and it does). I don't look forward to being CAPS LOCKED at by a long-term member or mod, so I will be on my best behavior and try to post any topics or replies appropriately.


I am interested in a wide-range of topics here, so I look forward to meeting lots of ya!

Yes I have, and you have more thongs than any other ATS member. Congrats! I'm pretty thrilled with my handle too. I was getting ready to stress about what it would be, then it suddenly came to me as it sums up my feelings after reading any given thread lol.

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"...!

I bid you a fond welcome.

ATS is more than a mere website, it is a watering hole, water cooler, local pub, dinner at your moms house, a class reunion, school, church, government orientation, college, baptism, chance encounter, a good night sleep, a sleepless night, a dream, a hope, a fantasy, a fine dining experience, a drive thru burger joint, an intervention and a rehab center for the cronically conspiracy inclined ------ ALL ROLLED INTO ONE.

Have fun, its a hoot!

Welcome to the wonderfull world of everything conspiracy,...did you know there is a forum called "Really Above Top Secret"?

The elite, puppetmasters, cabal or whatever you want to call "them" of this site want you to believe that everything below "Really Above Top Secret" is just a farce, a joke or a prank.

Fortunately most of us here know better....


PS, It isn't because I do not want to make things not too complicated but did you not know there is a department called Below Top Secret ? Cool stuff to find there too.
