Very interesting thread OP.
Can I ask what motivated you to make this now?
Like I said, I've been fascinated by kooks since the 1970s and the other day I thought it might be amusing and useful to put together a partial compilation of some of their attributes (not all attributes, of course, and not all kooks, either.)
Your comment on "don't believe me, do your own research" is also interesting.
However, that statement, I think is one we should all adere to, no matter the circumstances, even if it's something that "cannot be proved" such as galactic travelors.
As I said, it's a good personal practice, but overuse or over emphasis generally indicates that the claims being made are supported by self-referential, ambiguous or nonexistent evidence.
Its great to be able to hear from a member who is familiar with the history of the internet, however, you your self have not really made any factual commitments, you have just offered your own conclusion based on assumtions.
Except that I'm not sharing any conclusions, simply observations.
And I never said I'm not a kook, lol.
