Aw, you are really butthurt aren't you. I tell you my secret....lot's of oral!
The only oral you're giving or receiving (from females, anyway) is that from your mother when she tells you dinner is ready. Yes, you live at home with your mother and you troll people on forums all day. Truth hurts, doesn't it?
It's hard NOT to notice a disturbing and annoying pattern coming from you, you post constantly and everywhere.
You're not above resorting to pointing out grammatical errors when you see you've completely lost.
Seriously do us all a favor, stop making references to who you were in the past on ATS, nobody cares about your treasure trove of banned sock puppet accounts.
Try learning something from the other people here.

What's the matter? Not on a "roll" anymore?
Answer the questions.
Expand on your "the Chinese did it" theory.
Where is your overwhelming proof that makes it not a huge fallacy?

And maybe I am just a bit more perceptive than you.
You thought an English woman was an American man here. Not that perceptive, bub.

I agree with the majority of what you posted, especially the fallacies. Most of these trends you will find where any group of people gather to discuss, debate, or argue, and I'm sure everyone falls victim to their emotions on occasion and makes a statement that is a fallacy or just not true. And I'm sure everyone believes something that isn't true as well. It happens. Society is composed of human beings.
I have to remind myself sometimes that this is a conspiracy site, because I catch myself getting angry at the pure ignorance I sometimes read. Especially when people just accept anything at face value, like chemtrails, lol. Everything is NOT a conspiracy. In fact, very little usually truly is a conspiracy.
I honestly believe that there is a difference in a true conspiracy theorist, and someone who finds conspiracies everywhere they look, but most of the population of any region will lump the two together, unfortunately. A couple of items on your list, for instance the rich people, I disagree with. Mainly because I feel that the person making the claim truly means the extremely wealthy, and not your average "rich" person...Rich is relative, of course, but super-rich is large no matter where you are viewing it from.
To acquire that much wealth honestly is impossible. And by honestly I also mean ethically, as well as legally. Laws are broken, stretched, and misinterpreted purposefully so that these people get what they want, and they do not mind stepping on other people. Just look at the recent derivative/subprime lending scandal. A whole nation was being screwed over, both by those who perpetrated the fraud, and then by the government who is supposed to work for and protect the people. So this is what I think most people mean when they say "rich," and I leave room for that interpretation.
Research...lol. I too have noticed this trend. I use it sparingly, mainly for things that I actually know something about, and that I have spent time actually looking in to. I think people have a bad habit of forming opinions too easily. It can be difficult to train oneself to keep from forming an opinion until all the facts have been looked in to, and most people are not disciplined enough for this. It is definitely something to strive for imo. Good write-up overall, but I think you would, like myself, do good to sometimes remember that sites like this attract people who can sometimes be a little "off." Not everyone, but moreso than a non-conspiracy related site.
