As someone who fits that description by posting many speculative theories, here is my response assuming I am the poster in question:
Everything we know right now started out as its own little theory. These theories were constructed by gathering information AND by questioning
established "information". If no one questioned the "experts" of the past, we'd never get anywhere as a species. Thats not to say that any
question to a current held belief is valid nor does that state that anybody who qualifies as an expert on a topic is inherently wrong.
As someone who posts these theories, I value the feedback from someone who is more than likely more familiar with the information that I am
discussing. I'd love nothing more than an expert to crush one of my theories with undeniable fact as that would help me understand the topic better
and lead me in a different direction with it.
I feel that I must be able to explain something in my own words before I can truly understand it. This leads to me sometimes arguing with someone
about something they agree with me on
Its not about what you think you know, its about what you think someone else can prove which then entitles you to say "See I told you so".
My response under the impression that I am not even remotely the poster in question:
Generally speaking, people might tend to agree with the popular albeit far more out there theory. I say any incoming type of theory should be welcomed
(within reason). You have to know everything that is wrong before you can truly know what is right.
Do you know how boring this site would be if everyone agreed on the same point of view and just rehashed it over and over? This is a conspiracy site,
that in itself attracts people that tend to have strong views regardless of whether or not they can be classified as experts. That also involves a
great deal of speculation.
Everytime I log on to this web site, there is something that makes me think "Wow, I didn't know that but now I'm glad I do" and something else
that makes me think "That poster is out of their mind" while getting a good laugh in the process. Thats part of the fun of this place IMO.
