I am just curious as to when there is going to be a penalty for people who outright lie on this forum? Apparently, the penalty for "hoaxing" only
is applied if you fall on the "pro conspiracy" side. Has anyone ever been banned for lying or hoaxing on the "anti conspiracy" side of things?
In the last two months, I have seen this happening more and more, and it's not coming from the "pro conspiracy" side.
A general example would be a pro-conspiracy guy says "XYZ happened, ABC said this and here are the links". A couple of posts, or pages, later,
someone comes on and says "ABC never ever said this", and/or "XYZ never happened".
I am not talking about things that can be interpreted several ways. For example, take the recent Congressman's claim of "We're under martial law"
quote. That could legitimately be interpreted as applying to just Congress, or as applying to the entire U.S. That type isn't what I am talking
It is not an "opinion" when you can directly quote the sources, and the source's validity are not in dispute.
I guess another way to put it would be this: If you are going to punish "pro conspiracy" liars and hoaxers (and I agree with this), when are you
going to hold the "anti conspiracy" people to the same standards?
We all KNOW there are going to be direct disinfo agents posting of forums in the internet. THIS HAD BEEN ADMITTED BY OUR GOVERNMENT AND MILITARY.
Why are anti conspiracy types not being held to the same standard as pro conspiracy types?
Put another way: Why are the skeptics allowed to deliberately lie with no penalty?
(Note: I used the general phrase "anti conspiracy" and "pro conspiracy". You could just as easily replaced the word conspiracy in those terms
with the words bigfoot, ufos, monsters, werewolves, vampires, or any other subject matter.)
