I don't care to speculate on the site owner's motives for closing that thread. In it, as in every thread I have participated in on Above Top Secret, I have been entirely happy to consider credible documentary evidence when it is adduced to support a claim. I refuse to watch videos, however; it takes too long, and videos — unless they consist of unedited historical footage — can never be anything but secondary sources anyway.
If I had been trolling either this thread or that one, my posts would be worded differently — more aggressively, more provocatively and perhaps less courteously. I categorically reject the accusation.
Now, where's this 'refuting evidence' you claim to have posted? The only links in any of your posts are to the OP article (considered and debunked) and the study referenced in it (considered and shown to disprove your case).
The hardest thing to do is admit when your wrong. Its true; nowhere does it say in the study that CT are more sane....however I do think that it implies that they are more inclined to question the official story, are better at critical thinking and in general alot less gullible than the general population..
Again my mistake, perhaps it was a misleading thread title, but I do think that the study does imply that CT are more intellectual than the public at large.

The label itself was created as a tool in information warfare. In reality, there are those who accept official story lines, and those who question them. Everyone here on ATS is a "questioner" - we're all interested in uncontentional subject matters (presumably).
