Re: It's time for a conspiracy theory forum
The politics forum used to be filled with threads about ... well, about politics, for the most part -- no surprise there. Sure, there might be the occasional stray non-political thread that made its way into the politics forum, but that was the exception rather than the rule. Now, however, most threads seem to be devoted to the explication of various conspiracy theories. Indeed, some members do nothing but start conspiracy theory threads in the politics forum. In the process, those threads crowd out the ones that are genuinely devoted to political discussion.
Well, I think it's time that we make a special forum for all of these conspiracy threads. That way, someone interested in politics can actually find a political discussion in the politics forum, while those who want to know the latest about the malevolent forces who are out to dominate the world can find the answers without having to wade through all the naive political banter. So,for instance, anyone who thinks that 9/11 was masterminded by Bush, the worldwide Zionist conspiracy, Freemasons, the Illuminati, and/or visitors from the Crab Nebula should be able to find refuge in a comfortable, safe place where they can spin out their conspiratorial fantasies, and leave the rest of us alone.
I thought exactly this, and was going to start a thread just like this a few days ago, but figured it wouldn't accomplish anything. I did start my own 9/11 thread, though, to satirize these dipshits. You left out Pearl Harbor, though--that was the Great American Conspiracy Theory until September 11th came along to knock it out of number one.
