We do have a forum for “the gray area” and “disinformation” but not one for anyone who wishes to challenge conspiracies. If we want to write a thread criticizing a conspiracy it has to go under a appropriate forum that is FOR the conspiracy we don’t have anything that’s AGAINST or critical of conspiracies.

Exactly...this whole website was made to discuss conspiracy theories, where discussion will "likely tend to lean in favor of conspiracies, scandals, and cover-ups.". In other words, this forum was made by conspiracy theorists for conspiracy theorists. Do you skeptics understand that? I believe in Aliens, but does that mean I wont try my best to find faults in a theory or signs of tampering in a photo? Of course not...I'm also after the truth...the difference is, I don't already assume I know the mundane truth about everything, and then go around trying to prove that all these conspiracies have a mundane explanation...because they don't, and a lot of time they're just spouting crap they learnt in high school physics, thinking they know it all. You want a skeptics forum? It's called www.thescienceforum.com
A sceptics forum would only be visited by sceptics, not many believers would want to go there as the other threads here would be much more interesting for them.

Okay, forgive me but I have to point this out because it is driving me nuts...
It's not sceptics, it's SKEPTICS

I think they should make it. Not because we need it, but because it would be totally awesome if they called it the "Skeptic Tank."
