Sure, there's plenty of ways that it can be a conspiracy, but this Alex Jones every time someone farts it's a false flag nonesense is making all of us look like fools, it really is.

That there is the main point.
Then you should rethink your paragraph in the OP complaining about people who don't agree with your theory trying to take part in the discussion.

Respectfully, this a public forum, and the " Nay Sayers " help to balance the ego massaging conspiracy theorists, making for interesting debate...
Still, unless the person can counter with good points backed by evidence, that person's opinion is simply given less weight by other thread readers.
These came to light because people took the available info, discussed it, investigated, and came up facts to prove the theory of conspiracy.
There is nothing I love more then when someone finally makes the case enough to change my view. It has happened many times in my life, lasting changes.

For other uses, see Disinformation (disambiguation).
Disinformation is intentionally false or inaccurate information that is spread deliberately. For this reason, it is synonymous with and sometimes called black propaganda. It is an act of deception and false statements to convince someone of untruth. Disinformation should not be confused with misinformation, information that is unintentionally false.
Unlike traditional propaganda techniques designed to engage emotional support, disinformation is designed to manipulate the audience at the rational level by either discrediting conflicting information or supporting false conclusions. A common disinformation tactic is to mix some truth and observation with false conclusions and lies, or to reveal part of the truth while presenting it as the whole (a limited hangout).
Another technique of concealing facts, or censorship, is also used if the group can affect such control. When channels of information cannot be completely closed, they can be rendered useless by filling them with disinformation, effectively lowering their signal-to-noise ratio and discrediting the opposition by association with many easily disproved false claims.
