I know I'll never get answers from the Gov. that why I'm here trying to sort things out. I value other peoples opinions, it helps with the "thinking outside the box".
If your not saying this sorry I'm confused

I had a fear that this thread might spread the idea of not trusting anything and get twisted into a growth in accusation against people(saying they are in cointelpro and insulting or harrassing them to discredit them when they oppose their views through this form of McCarthyism).

Not trusting a source is not the same as not believing anything they say. Its simply a matter of objectively and critically scrutinizing what they present.
This was an effort to neutralize the McCarthyism that is endemic in todays Conspiracy Theory community. It wasnt a call to arms to begin labelling people COINTELPRO, it was infact the complete opposite.
When you realize that COINTELPRO is utterly useless if you do not blindly trust conspiratorial sources the point becomes moot. Dont accuse a source of being COINTELPRO and we wont be divided and conquered. Dont blindly trust a conspiratorial source and we wont be fed disinfo.
