Thinking of creating your own website dedicated to the 'conspiracy' behind the Boston Marathon? Well ATS procrastinator -- you won't be able to name it www.BostonMarathonConspiracy.com

That's because Jaimie Muehlhausen, a Californian, has already taken the domain name. But he didn't do so to delve into the inconsistencies, or to conduct his own investigation, or to provide a place for interested citizens to get information. He did so just so you couldn't.


Seriously, he just wanted to beat "conspiracy nuts" to the punch.

When you visit the site, all you get is a white background with the following message:


Please keep the victims of this event and their families in your thoughts. Thank you


In an email, Jaimie explains:


"Sadly, one of my first thoughts was that it would only be a matter of hours before a certain group of people would begin to say it was a government conspiracy; an act of terror on our own people for political gain. It’s sickening, but take a look at the massive numbers of 9/11 conspiracy nuts - people who think Bush and the gang took down the Twin Towers and ended the lives of nearly 3000 people so we could go to war. The heartless and sick Sandy Hook conspiracy theorists who think the Obama administration killed kindergartners to bolster the gun control debate. And there are plenty of others. Well, I was wrong. It didn’t take hours; it took minutes."



Mr. Muehlhausen now reports that he’s encouraged by emails from around the world, he says, that the “irrational [expletive] did not win this one.


Of course, not to worry - he doesn't own ATS

let me be the first to say...
That his website is probably a conspiracy.


He does make a good point though, that the victims should be in our minds and prayers.

Lmao... you're on fire! I didn't expect so much research into other similar domains. Thought it was a funny story and a futile effort by him (and apparently others) to thwart conspiracy theorists.
Awesome.

It's ok to laugh!

He sounds like illogical, judgmental and offensive. In only one paragraph he managed to display several unpleasant traits.

I don't believe any of the conspiracies he listed off, in fact I think they're all idiotic. You'll have seen me arguing against them many times with plenty of passion and commitment.

However, I can't accept claims that people who believe them are "sick" or "heartless". People who believe these are conspiracies BELIEVE them, the act of believing it wholeheartedly surely prevents the individual from being sick or heartless? It would be sick or heartless to promote these events as government invented conspiracies if you didn't believe it, but if you did in fact believe it, you might be wrong and stupid, but I don't think you can be "heartless". What exactly is heartless in believing 9/11 was a conspiracy? I don't understand the reasoning, if there is any - and I doubt that there is.

Here's one example of what I mean. I support Mumia Abu-Jamal, now people hear this, people who believe the official story and they say things like "my god, you're vile, how can you support somebody who murdered a cop in cold blood?"... while not realising the most obvious of facts... I don't believe the official story! So as far as I'm concerned I'm supporting an innocent, wrongly convicted person, not a cold blooded murderer. People seem to have a logical shutdown when things like this are concerned.

I don't see how people can't understand this. I know masses of people who believe 9/11 was a conspiracy. I think they're all wrong. But I wouldn't dream of saying they're sick or heartless because, simply put, they aren't. They're every day people who think and feel like everybody else. Most of these people are campaigning against wars, they have high levels of empathy and feel for both the victims of the twin tower attack and the victims in the middle east dying as a consequence of that attack. They're anything but heartless. Wrong? Most likely. Heartless? Not that I can see.

You can put a lot of things to conspiracy theorists, but questioning their humanity is really a bit much. Furthermore, it's cheap.

Perhaps somebody who knows the man can point out the irony in attacking irrational people while making numerous character judgements in the process, most of them irrational. An intelligent, rational person would engage in intelligent, rational debate, no? They wouldn't make insanely idiotic character assessments about a massive portion of society, guilt tripping and morally shunning them in the process.

You don't have to believe every conspiracy you come across to be moronic and heartless, Jaimie Muehlhausen is proof of that.

For the record I don't think there's anything wrong with this man buying the domain, but his remarks don't sit well with me. There's so many good people on ATS alone, might be a little crazy but most are good humans none the less. I'm even tempted to go out on a limb and rubbish my own side here, because I find many skeptic forums I frequent the people are a little cold, distant and fairly lacking in emotional intelligence by comparison to the folk on ATS. Hugely intelligent and right about almost everything, don't get me wrong, but not the type of people I'd share a beer with.

I understand completely how Jaimie has grown to dislike irrational people though. It's more than likely a natural consequence of being given a girls name

let's see, he mocks conspiracy theorists,
spends a bunch of money to thwart their efforts before they take hold,
gets mass media coverage, and is considered a "hero" by them.

Does this smell like a government operation to anyone else?

No. It sounds like an opinionated and passionate guy making an opinionated and passionate stance.

Jaimie Muehlhausen, according to Google, is a fairly talented and accomplished man. I'm sure he has the money to spend on a few domain names, the media exposure in itself would make the purchases well worth it. We are talking a man who's an artist, musician and book seller.

There's nothing at all to suggest the government has anything to do with this.

I just find this funny that people are going to lengths to buy these domains up.
I don't think it will matter to much to a conspiracy theorist whether some domain name has been bought up.
at the end of the day they will put their theory on the net anyway, these people should suck it up.
come a year and they won't register that domain name. Its only for their temporarily hero status, nothing else, until people forget about them domains.

Its a sad day when someone needs to seek attention this way.

Maybe I'll take a page from their playbook and do a little research into this so-called "hero"
find out where he works, where he lives, what his voting affiliation is, any aliases, where he went to school...etc

He can have his overpriced domain if it did, I don't see any conspiracy person paying out allot of money for a domain.
