Actually the biggest problem I see nowadays is that every time someone has a theory that is just a little out of the box it gets shot down and ridiculed immediately, often by the same people.

It's like things can only be discussed if there is 100% proof, and people are made to feel like idiots for even thinking of the "weird" theory.


I don't see it. I see a conspiracy site that has been infiltrated by rainbow sprinkler people.

Knowing little, ranting a lot, and anyone who disagrees is a shill.

*IF* some of the people with absurd claims were open to discussion rather than educating the less aware people, we;d ave a far better machine running here than the rusty bucket some threads turn into.

So may recent pareidolia threads of late are a good example. Despite the same things being raised over and over, the OP's are 100% correct and the flock of followers supporting them rally against anyone who says otherwise. I have no idea how people can look at the phenomenon and the facts and steadfastly accuse others of ignorance.

When NASA was throwing bombs at the moon (using the fuselage of a spent rocket booster to gather samples) we had people claiming there were people on the moon, and look you could see their camp fires in the craters to boot.......... REALLY?

Sometimes it just becomes clear, people are either not the full bottle, or obviously trolling.

No discussion, no observation of facts, just outright IM right and it is evil.

Thank you for proving mine. You are actually doing the very thing you accuse others off, but you don't even realize it.

Sorry I must have missed the "hate" post by a member..


CynicalM.....

Sometimes you have to know what you are looking for, which can be difficult without being able to view the said content through the prism of precedent.

Kind regards

lol, yes, it was always better in "the good ole days"

But everyone must move with the times...

Not that some of these members have really been here that long anyways, its like a few years, not decades...

I could imagine this site was very different at the start. Less people had computers and internet access. The ones that did were probably professionals, so I could see the difference to now..

Are you on drugs or just don't speak english???

Am I supposed to solve that riddle disguised as a post?

And I guess next you'll say mine is a hate post.

CynicalM.....


In order to see the "hate" seen by MMN, you first have to start phony mock threads, resort to ridicule and infantism for the biggest part of the time and just be an a-hole in general, only then you will be able to see said content throught the prism of precedent.

And you are doing what you are accusing me of.

You can add double standards to your resume now.

Also true, the difference is that these people debunk themselves, but a lot of times, interesting subjects or theories are silenced because of immediate ridicule and negativity, by people that refuse to look outside of the box, and only want 100% proof.

This is a bigger threat to evolution of knowledge and finding truth than the "rainbow sprinkler crowd" as you call them.

I agree with some of the earlier posters in this thread, who say ''be the change you wish to see''.


Totally agree

Im already considering changing the tone of some of my posts based on those earlier responses.

I just said a few posts back that we are all doing it. The funny part is that you point out this behavior in others, but just can't seem to realize that you are doing it yourself, and are perpetuating it by responding to it.

If you think you are better, maybe you should be the bigger man and ignore it.

Instead you keep feeding it. You are no better than me or anyone else.

If all those topics listed in the opening post suddenly disappeared there would be hardly anything to read on this site, I know that's the point (that there's too much pollution) but there no way you're going to fill a forum of this size with purest conspiracy theories, not enough exist and all the old classic conspiray theories and been done to death. Trying to sensor the ''hate'' is just burying it under the carpet and I'd much rather see it and be aware of it than just denying reality and sticking my head in the sand, at least if it's in the open there's a chance to reason with the so called 'hater'.

I see it a little like this, if you don't like it either nut up or shut up.

I wasn't, until you decided to troll on my reply to someone else, which you're more than welcome to do, but don't berate me for something you started.



If you think you are better, maybe you should be the bigger man and ignore it.


And let you have the final word?

Hell no!



Instead you keep feeding it.


Feeding what? You the troll?




You are no better than me or anyone else.


I never said I was better than anyone, you're the one who is trying to manipulate the conversation to position yourself as the better person.
