With the recent revival of the X-Files I wanted to place a quick post on my of my favourite sites of yesteryear: abovetopsecret.com. You might notice that the link to this site goes to a waybackmachine page. This is because, in my opinion, the site was at its best during the early 00’s. I could spend hours lost in its pages of articles. I was enthralled by each and every one and loved the conspiracy stories. In my opinion it is a fine example of an lates 90’s early 00’s website which was made purely for the enjoyment of its readers and by a proud webmaster.
It’s hard to find websites like this anymore. Most are so laden with ads it takes longer for them to load than any website I used to browse on dial-up every did. If you get the chance take a look at the waybackmachines archives of this site and see for yourself what I mean. After it got the forum and became a corporate beast the quality went down hill dramatically.
I’m not sure how to end this post. It’s been a bit of rant but I’ll keep looking for more sites like this which are still available today!
