I also happen to agree with their sentiments, so can you make an announcement to tell everyone to only post conspiracy stories in that section only. That way, we don't have an issue with some members here....
Not really. Because some topics match several categories. For example, threads about GMO's could be in the health board or conspiracy board, government tyranny topics could be in current events, the government board or the conspiracy board. And some historical conspiracy topics could be in the history board or conspiracy board. See what I mean?
Conspiracies are a part of life and may sometimes relate to other topics and categories as well. Why should every topics in every board outside the conspiracy board pretend that conspiracies don't exist? That's too much to ask. You can't completely segregate them like that. Think about it.
Example: Suppose someone starts a topic about gender and race wars in America in the General Discussions board. Then another person posts that these are conflicts engineered by the elite to divide us. Should that person not be allowed to say that, simply because the topic is outside the conspiracy board? See how complicated that would get?
Or suppose someone started a topic about wars. Then another person brings up that the war was started by a false flag operation orchestrated by the government. (such as the Gulf of Tonkin in Vietnam). Should the whole thread be moved to the conspiracy board? Should no one be allowed to say that because it's not in the conspiracy board? See how nebulous that would become?
Besides, why do these guys have such an aversion to conspiracies? They exist and are a part of life. Why segregate them from everything else in life? It doesn't make sense.
If these guys don't want to talk about conspiracies, then they shouldn't talk about them. Problem solved.
+1 to you Winston.
Like I've told my Mom: you bring up politics, you're gonna get back politics. I'm not going to censor myself. After all, I'm not the crook - "THEY" are. I'm not gonna pretend.
But again I DO think there should be a way to separate the fun threads like girls, travel, etc., from the anger and angst. Maybe I should just search the forum a different way. I always look at the "posts since [my] last visit", so I end up seeing all types of threads.
