There was a time, long before compartmentalized special access programs, that other people created their very own secret organizations. These programs operated outside of government control, and oversight. In fact, during the last century, the United States was full of these fraternal organizations. Most of which operated with a secret side. And most, of which, were men-only membership and required rituals to join, and tasks to complete. All in secret. Here we look at one of them; the Dellschau flying machine project.
These other people, and these other organizations, created societies with membership, and worked those programs to their conclusions. They kept all of their activities secret. They took blood oaths, and policed their ranks. They held belief in causes greater than themselves. They toiled and worked, and then moved on.
Sometimes the objectives were political in nature. Such as to liberate a land or a people. Sometimes the objectives were social, as to provide an outlet for fun and debauchery where the prying eyes of the lesser sex could be safely occluded. And, yes, sometimes the organizations revolved around devices, inventions and adventuresome activities.
These organizations would often hold meeting in secret, and rotate the locations. They would elect members, and would enforce initiation rituals and codes of secrecy. They would hold meetings, of which members would repeat and enforce codes of behaviors and rituals shrouded and cloaked in the arcane.
Often they would have secret handshakes, and special symbols and behaviors that only other members would recognize. Such as rings, ways of tying their shoelaces, pins and badges and other behaviors that would be ignored by the uninitiated.

Why should anyone "read more" at your blog? Nothing prevents
you from posting the whole thing right here on Free Republic.
Are you trying to get clicks to raise money for something?
A tragic illness or a drug habit or an addiction to hookers?
Maybe you could set up a "Go-Fund-Me" page or something.
And claiming that your blog has an "editorial staff" is pretty hilarious.
I will head over to metallicman and check it out.
Humblegunner, If you had read Vannrox' blog post (and I get it, you get all worked up when you think people are using FR to drive traffic to their blogs), you would have seen that there was lots of content at his site, and not just words - but many, many pictures as well - all of which would have clogged up JimRob's bandwidth unnecessarily.
And how else are bloggers supposed to drive traffic to their sites - or don't you want people to be able to make money on their work in the first place?

“A tragic illness or a drug habit or an addiction to hookers?”
Hmmm. I’ve pointed out to you that some of the charges you level against your targets are applicable to you. This one? Probably not, but maybe.
Prideful gunner, is it time for your weekly banning?
No, it’s only Tuesday.
Humblegunner wants it for free. He’s no better than the gimme dats. Too lazy to lift his finger.
Well, his post on one of the recent Micheal Jackson threads where he suggested maybe the kids liked it was removed, but given that Not one of those things sounds even remotely unlikely.
Save on No-Doze and just read the guy’s Wikipedia page.
Folks, it doesn’t cost anything to click onto a blog...
If you want to read the story, go ahead...If you don’t, then just move on...
As long as one has a vpn setup on ones router to block the ads. Or for those with minimal tech skills, one can purchase Raspberry Pi and hook it up.
Just think, if everyone ran a VPN, how much easier HGs life would be and how much poorer the blog humpers would be. :)
And how much less content there would be on the internet.
Everything would either be behind a paywall or wouldnt be worth reading.
Shhh! It’s part of his “secret society.”
The only people that would continue to do so would be those that cant get paid for their content aka hacks and crackpots.
