I've been browsing here off and on for a little while, but recently GLP has decided to ban me for expressing my opinion in a respectful manner, so I decided to finally register here.
I know many of you consider GLP a crappy forum, but I had gotten to know a few nice people there and I liked the simplicity of the forum UI there, so that's why I stuck around there for so long..
Hopefully I'll learn the interface for this forum and find interesting topics to participate in here! I'll look forward to getting to know everyone on here. So far, I'm actually impressed.
There seems to be a much more reasonable moderation system here, as opposed to GLP where you can be as vile as you wish and nothing happens while the actual contributors are randomly banned.

Sorry for the long rant, but anyway, there's my introduction!

Yes it's true. After the war all of the Nazi's who survived fled Germany and moved to GLP. Where they have been hiding ever since.




Welcome to ATS. I'm sure you'll find plenty of topics to interest you.

Hi Kandy and welcome

This site is a fountain of information - period.

Oh, and I noticed the Mods have given you a K of 70 !!! K- Karma rating, don't bother trying to work out the formula - its more closely guarded that the vatican archives


Defecting from GLP has its ups it seems.

See you round like a rissole

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! But be aware if you act in an uncivil-like manner, discuss personal illicit drug usage, use profanity, troll, intentionally spread a hoax, spam, advertise 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"...!

So a higher "K" is a bad thing? If so, it looks like I've already made some enemies..

Quite the opposite.
High K seems good.
Most float between 10 and 30 I've noticed, seems to be a relationship between amount of posts v's flags and stars received but I suggest there is more to it than that.

Oh, believe you me, you will undoubtedly know when you have made enemies, some on this site become God-like behind their keyboards - but you can tell them a mile away - they always appear from the bridge they live under.

Anyway, thanks for the comments.

I think applause is also factored in. I'm actually posting to see my K score. I don't usually pay much mind to the points in a persons avatar.

Hi Kandy! Great name and I like the avatar.
