Congratulations, you've joined the world's largest and civil alternative topics discussion community! We understand that with rules, policies and just
the shear size of the website, it can be quite overwhelming. So we've created a presentation tour with just you in mind.
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, discuss
personal illict 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"...!
