What makes a 'Conspiracy Master' a conspiracy master? I've noticed one CM in particular who shoots down every single conspiracy theory presented here. Isn't the title 'Conspiracy Master' a little oxymoronic in this case?

Not melting down or anything........just asking.


Peace

Yeah, considering there's only two with that designation which one of me is it? I mean which one of us is it? I mean, it's not Justin, right?

I'm waiting for your confirmation, because then I'll be ready to throw up the countless accusations against me that I'm a conspiracy theorist. Once we get past the minuet, I'll have some follow-up questions that lead into the tango.

There's more than two isn't there? I don't know who Justin is. I'm not on a first name basis with anyone here. So if there is only two then it shouldn't be too hard to figure out who it is. If you've ever discussed a conspiracy theory as being possible, then it's not you.

*nibbles at the bait but doesn't take it*

This bass has been around the lake a time or two.

I am not on a first name basis with any one either. Is Byrd's first name Justin? He/she has the 'Conspiracy Master' logo?

Is Byrd the poster you're talking about?

Yes she is! I did not know this.

Welcome to CM, Byrd!

You must use the process of deduction young grashoppa.

No names shall flow from these lips.

It's A Conspiracy!

Disclaimer: These are just my opinions, not anything official, because I'm not personally involved with the Conspiracy Master program.

I don't think "Conspiracy Master" is necessarily synonymous with "believes every conspiracy".

Conspiracy Masters can be skeptics, too.

What qualifies a Conspiracy Master is expertise in a conspiracy-related field and a demonstrated track record of quality work related to conspiracies.

Thus I would imagine even a full-time debunker like James Randi would be welcome as a Conspiracy Master if he chose to apply (which would be cool, IMO).

So if a CM disagrees with one, more or all conspiracy theories, I don't see that as a problem.

And let's not forget that all members are entitled to hold and express whatever opinions they want, Conspiracy Master or not.

Your mileage may vary.

I'm pretty sure the Justin was Justin Oldham. I thought he was a Conspiracy Master until I checked his posts and didn't see the picture that goes with it. However, I also don't believe that Justin would ever be anti-conspiracy in the general sense.


I would also like to ask, why is this complaint going out here instead of using the Complain box to point out that a member with a title is not representing it well?

I'm not complaining, I'm writing a thesis on conspiracy masters and board cops. Hold on...I'll get to you later.

Touché! You're absolutely right.*

Discussion of individual members is not an appropriate topic for BQ&B.

However, we can still discuss this aspect of Conspiracy Masters, if members want to.





*(Although I will volunteer that I'm a fan of Justin Oldham. He's an excellent writer. Props!)

Perhaps I should speak for myself here. I don't know why I lack a Conspiracy Master label. I've asked about it but no mod has ever responded. So, I gave up the asking. I'm just happy to be here, doing what I do.

I don't know where you asked as I never saw it, but sorry about the oversight it's on you now.

Nah... Springer's right. We'd all see him a mile away if he had another account. Before you know it he'd be babbling about Harleys and what not. It wouldn't last an hour.

As for Byrd... trust me Byrd's name is not Justin lol.

As for Justin, nice to see your badge
