Hello, guys. I'm another one who's been lurking for years, and finally decided to join. I'm into politics, though I suppose I wouldn't bring anything different to the table; ATS has usually been comprised of intellects, one of which I am not. But I absolutely hate being "that guy" for repeating the previous 20 replies.
I believe I'm the only one, though. I say that because it happens in most threads, and no one seems to notice/care. So, that leads me to suspect some problem in my thinking.


I have read some amazing threads by some of you. Threads that look like they take days to compile. It's insane, the intelligence of some at ATS. I've enjoyed the philosophical subjects as well. I do not foresee my participation in much that goes on here; parroting is more or less for the "look at me" people. I only hope to add quality to the discussion, as everyone here surely knows what a derailed thread looks like. And being that I am not a jack of all trades as some here are, that will limit my input.

I mostly come here for the New Topics and Top Topics, although I'll venture into a 11 hour reading/researching session if I have the time. HAHA There were many threads that were almost "that one" that made me make an account to reply. lol Well, I look forward to the lack of ads, at least. Or does that have no bearing on being signed in? Maybe I should read more rules. Anyway, I am glad to be here.

Welcome to ATS.

If you enjoy reading fiction, check out the forums... uh, erm... I mean check out the short stories forum.

There are some great writing contests that take place. and sometimes reading some actual fiction is a nice break from all the craziness you might find in the other forums.

Thanks, I figured it out. I really dig the layout of the site when logged in. After years of looking at a ton of ads, this is refreshing.

Thank you. It's nice to meet you, as well. After I get my 20 posts, I'll start a thread about my situation since the beginning of Dec. 2011. Certainly nothing profound or exciting, but I would like to share.

I don't know why I never joined. I'll mostly be reading and researching. That's what I like to do, and this site has always given me plenty of that.

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 you're 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, troll, 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"...!
