I can see the "silence the voice angle" to be certain.
But I also know that our community tends to attract some very "type A" personalities. I'm one without a doubt. Many of the posters in just this
thread ( already ) qualify IMO. If you mix in a dab of paranoid into such a person and then let them simmer for a period of time?
Well most of us who've been here awhile have witnessed member meltdowns from longstanding and respected members. This is why the older members rarely
jump into the random "Why is so and so banned???" thread. We've been around long enough to have seen the embarrassing happen to our own friend and
respected colleagues. In fact I think that quite a few of us also have experienced, first hand, what it's like to get really, really, really caught
in a story and then feel it actually affecting our lives. Anyone who was of age on 09/11 pretty much knows what this feels like.
I honestly think that some folks just stew and their safety valves don't prevent them from blowing a gasket. Sometimes that leads to violence or self
harm... or both.
Whenever a conspiracy person goes out in a way other than very obviously natural causes - it's in our natures to wonder about it... but many of us
also, somewhat quietly, add to that thought "There but for the grace..."
Just my off the cuff thoughts.
