It runs completely contrary to the essence of what a forum on philosophy and metaphysics should be.

Sometimes simpler is better. Not everyone is well-versed in philosophical concepts such as analysis and explication. Also, when you go too deep into analysis and explication, it can take away from the essence of the topic being discussed.

'conspire' actually means 'breath together' and unless your about to give up breathing, let the rest of us crack on lol


late Middle English: from Old French conspirer, from Latin conspirare ‘agree, plot’, from con- ‘together with’ + spirare ‘breathe’.

Laziness.
Philosophy


The Lazy Argument or Idle Argument (Ancient Greek: ἀργὸς λόγος) is either an argument for fatalism or an attempt at undermining the philosophical doctrine of fatalism. Its basic form is that of a complex constructive dilemma.
you hit the nail on the head. That's exactly what this post is lool
