AMG's Registration Policy
IMPORTANT: Anonymity is protected on AMG. Any AMGer who gives a public positive identification of any other AMGer without that AMGer's knowledge and consent will be banned from AMG for life. No parole. No exceptions.
AMG has a limited number of posters.
If you think you as a poster will add to AMG, you're welcome to send me an email explaining why. If you have references - i.e. a current AMGer - that will help. If I agree with you - I'll email you instructions on how to register.
Before emailing me - please read AMG's User Agreement below. Feel free to contact me with any questions/comments.
IMPORTANT: You must use a valid email address for registering. Please, no free email addresses.

AMG Policy on 'Conspiracy Theory' Posts
AMG is a place for a broad range of topics, but it’s not a place for all topics. Effective Feb. 18, 2008 at 12:01 a.m., what are generally referred to as “conspiracy theories” are not welcome on AMG. I know some people, including people I like, enjoy digging into The Bilderberg Group, The Trilateral Commission, The Council on Foreign Relations, The Rothschild Family, Control of the Federal Reserve and other topics loosely defined “conspiracy theories.” That’s fine. Fortunately, the world web wide is big enough that fans of those topics, and topics like them, will have no trouble finding another home.
AMG thanks the many registered users who have made this an informative, fun site. Please contact AMG's managing editor with questions or comments. Thank you.
