The childishness of the theory and its supporters have pretty much destroyed its legitimacy, but it convinced all sorts of people in the Middle East it was all a "Zionist plot" which leads to more Taliban recruits.
I agree, the 9/11 forum has pretty much shown it's done more harm than good. For one thing, the conspiracy theorists have polluted the forum with so much fake information to instigate false paranoia that readers wind up leaving more confused than they were before. Case in point- that fake "fires melted the steel" claim. Noone ever claimed any such thing except the conspiracy theorists themselves, telling me you got that factoid from the other conspiracy theorists at the 9/11 forum. Am I right?
Little wonder why it was shut down when it was invaded by those people pushing that "no planes hit the Pentagon" fakery. They didn't give a fig about discussing what happened on 9/11. All they wanted to do was promote their own conspiracy web site for their own financial gain. What website was likewise promoting "fires melted the steel", I wonder?
