Hello, I have lurked on and off for years but am only now posting. Seeing as how this is a conspiracy theory site, I won't too much detail about myself
lol but will say that this stuff interests me greatly. Alternative news sources seem to be better for things going on in the world than mainstream, I'm afraid.

Welcome to the fold. Personal details are optional (names and addresses unnecessary) and secrecy can be a great tool for the anonymous masses.

Enjoy your time here and I look forward to seeing you on the forums.

Thank you, I hate to sound stupid but it's hard getting the hang o a sophisticated forum such as this, hopefully I will not miss any replies to me but if I do I guess it's a good idea to preface it now that it's not that I would be ignoring them, I may just not know how to get back to the posts, haha!

No worries, it took me a week to figure out that there is an Inbox here. Every person that replies to a post of yours will be reported in your Inbox. To get to your Inbox you can use 2 methods. Click Messages on the ribbon bar at the bottom of the screen (you may need to click on "SHOW MORE" to expand the ribbon, depending on how long you have been on a page) and then click on replies.

The other way is to click Tools (at the top of all pages) then click on Messages and then click on Replies. All replies will be listed. After reading and/or replying you can delete it from your inbox so as to stay current with things.

Good luck.

AboveTopSecret is much like a theme park with many, many rides, 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 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 on. Before getting on a ride, you should be mentally fit, emotionally 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. At times, you may learn something new and 'out-of-the-box' before you get off the ride, this is a natural and normal phenomena.

*** 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"...!

Greetings, and welcome. You'll find some interesting posts on this site, some insightful and yes the very wacky. Have fun, and don't forget to wear protection just to be safe. (thats your mental body armor by the way)

Hello there. A pleasure to meet you.

The above poster only made a pun on protection because your username has Laura in it.
