RULES OF ENGAGEMENT



The Meaning of the word Apocalypse from Webster's Dictionary:

Main Entry: apocalypse
Pronunciation: [uh-pok-uh-lips] Function: noun Etymology: Middle English, revelation, Revelation, from Late Latin apocalypsis, from Greek apokalypsis, from apokalyptein to uncover, from apo- + kalyptein to cover -- Date: 13th century.

We are living in strange and interesting times. Many times the word apocalypse comes up in regards to "the end of the world" etc. But as you can see above the REAL meaning of the word is to "uncover," a "revelation," to REVEAL.

Perhaps it is time to look at these amazing times that we are living in with different perspectives of inquiry and expectation. This forum is for the "seekers," those not afraid to ask the questions. It is also for the "seers", those who can see beyond the deception being perpetrated upon the masses. This is a place to share these insights and to dig deeper into their meanings. What are we are looking for? The Truth. Where will we find it? We don't know!

The Surfing The Apocalypse Network has been established to provide a way for the reader to interact with the main site http://www.surfingtheapocalypse.com

The best posts will be chosen daily and linked to the front page.

Topics Include but are not limited to:

Alternative History / Apocalypse Culture / Conspiracy / Chemtrails / Crop Circles / Earth
Changes / Forbidden Archeology / Holy Grail / Intelligence / Prophecy /
Radar Anomalies / Religion / Sacred Geometry
/ Sitchin / Space / UFO'S / The Unexplained...

....And anything else that pierces the veil of the matrix around us.

It is hoped that an interesting and non-judgemental dialogue can take shape here.
While we can all disagree, may we agree to do so in a civil and respectful manner.

This will CLOAK your email address and allow readers to click on the SEND EMAIL link at the top of your post. The email will be routed through our servers and the sender will not know your email address unless you respond directly to them. You are not required to provide your email address in the post if you do not want readers to be able to email you. However, Surfing The Apocalypse must have a valid email address on your membership application and on file so that we may contact you. If your email address becomes outdated you will need to update it - failure to do so, leaving us unable to contact you directly, could result in your access being disabled.

  • COMMON COURTESY AND RESPECT ARE THE RULE.

  • NO Hotlinking of graphics: Hotlinking of graphics is not allowed. Hot linking is posting a graphic file here that is still housed on someone else's (not yours) server. This is usually accomplished by looking at the image properties and copying the location into a html img tag. This is stealing bandwidth! Bandwidth costs money, and this is considered theft.

    Here is an article on Hotlinking, please review this if you do not understand the concept: SO YOU'VE DECIDED TO HOTLINK AND STEAL BANDWIDTH

    The post form allows you to upload a small graphic file with your post to our (STA) server. If you need to post a large image in the body of your post, you will have to save the image on your computer, upload the image to your own server and serve it from there. A suggestion would be to upload a small version to this forum via the space provided on the posting form and link to the original page that contains the image .

    Images such as SOHO or Radar images that change very rapidly would be examples of images you would want to save and serve from your own server. In that case you would want to save the image, upload it to your own server and post it from there.

    There are many free spaces on the internet that you can use as image servers. If you plan on posting a lot of images, it would be a good idea to join one of these.

  • Daily Postings Number Limitations: At this time there is no limit to the number of posts that you are allowed daily. Please do not abuse this freedom. Please post only the most relevant and interesting posts that others will want to read. Posting unlimited numbers of mainstream news articles with no independent comments as to HOW these stories are relevant is not encouraged. Please state in your post why you think the article might be important to the bigger picture. Some exceptions to this might be obvious information articles that readers would want to see - such as major bills passed in congress, major archaeological finds etc. This suggestion would not apply to breaking news events that are being posted i.e. major earthquake or other event that was being posted "real time." These types of postings during "real time" events would then be acceptable. During these times please monitor the forum as you post to make sure that there are not mass duplications of the same articles by muliple members of this forum.

    NOTICE: Hateful and/or Threatening emails WILL be published including the email address of origin.

  • Agreement: You agree that all races, ethnic groups and religions have had controllers and those that have been controlled - therefore it is an error to blame any entire "group" of people for all of the "evils" of the world. You may address religious doctrine - policy etc that has influenced world events. You may address the "official" history that we have been taught and offer alternative historical views and research, but you may not condemn an entire group of people based solely on their religious, gender or ethnic inheritance.

    This is not a chat room, so please limit posts of only one or two word replies. This is an area to post articles, research, editorials and views and to comment intelligently on those posts.

    Look at your membership here as an invitation. An invitation to come into a friend's living room and converse with all your friend's friends. Common courtesy is the number one rule. Spirited debate is encouraged but no flame wars will be tolerated. Intentional and constant disruptions that only lead away from the subject being discussed will be grounds for termination.

    These rules have been established based on years of experience in various interactive types of environments. There are those who do not want the free discussion of ideas and will use various ruses to disrupt. These rules are an attempt to protect the environment of discussion and growth.

    Over the years that Surfing The Apocalypse has been on the internet, it has established itself as a top alternative news site - this is your opportunity to become a part of that. It is my belief that opening up the site to the input of so many more points of view can only enhance it.

    This is viewed as a organic process - so the administration reserves the right to revise rules of membership if the need arises. If any changes are made to rules of membership, they will be posted on the forum and added to this page.

    I am looking forward to working with all of you.
