Just that the OP seems to be making a case against conspiracy theorists - suggesting they are nutjobs. Read the OP on page 1.

Several posters have disagreed.

The OP is now showing as a guest.

Dawnie asked for her account to be deleted earlier in the thread, and she then asked me by pm today.

I don't think that we will ever know the answer to this mystery as Dawnie has left the forum of her own accord.

Now we don't want a conspiracy theory to develop around this issue, please!

Perhaps we need to define 'conspiracy'. 

In the case of 9/11  - in the German documentary 'Unter Falschen Flagge'  it was estimated that no more than dozen people needed to be in on the whole plot. 
The rest was 'need to know' .
Which is perhaps illustrated by the curious behaviour of the air traffic controller. 

The same air traffic controller on duty when the Egypt Air flight a few years earlier simply dived into the sea. Interesting event, interesting connections.  The plane was full of top-level Egyptian military staff. 

In the McCann case, from the testimonies of the Tapas 9 it seems that not all of the group were fully informed.

If it had been organised by intelligent people, all essential information would have been passed to those likely to be interviewed by the police. 
The problem was that  -imo - it was not foreseen that the PJ would interview so many and so thoroughly. 
A Blairite disdain for the law and the lack of research in the workings of the Portuguese justice system is the main problem in the early days. 
Without the FO stepping in it would have been solved in a week imo. 

Bit like a badly written computer programme  in the eighties I had to write  them in Basic and Fortran. 
First programme I made a mistake and at 30 said 'go to 60' but forgot that at 60 I'd typed 'go to 30', resulting in a lot of paper spewed out by the printer.
Tapas interviews remind me of  that wonky programme.

I just didn`t get the explanation that people lie to save their own necks but this is not a conspiracy.
When this happens it IS a conspiracy by the dictionary definition of the word.
con·spir·a·cy

/kənˈspirəsē/

noun

noun: conspiracy; plural noun: conspiracies

a secret plan by a group to do something unlawful or harmful.
"a conspiracy to destroy the government"

synonyms: plot, scheme, plan, machination, ploy, trick, ruse, subterfuge; informal racket
"a conspiracy to manipulate the results"

•the action of plotting or conspiring.
"they were cleared of conspiracy to pervert the course of justice"
synonyms: plotting, collusion, intrigue, connivance, machination, collaboration; treason
"conspiracy to commit murder"

IF the truth still does not emerge then conspiracy theories abound. Fact of life.
Some people accept what they are told, some don`t.

I kind of feel bad that Dawnie-C left over this. When she first made her comments I felt it was going to be a case of me and a few others being laughed at for being conspiracy nuts, so I was quite defensive.

But in the end she was pretty much out on her own. Although I hate being in the minority, I also don't much like being in the majority either.

I simply gave an example of what I think is a "conspiracy" and I was dismissed very rudely indeed. There's no place for that kind of behaviour on a forum, in fact it left me thinking that she had maybe been sent here by CMOMM to troll.

Thomas you are too nice for your own good. DawnieC put her thoughts up for discussion which, if done in a civilised and polite fashion, would not have been a problem.
That she chose to insult fellow members with her tone then leave without explaining her position is her own doing.
I think Resistor may be correct in that she was here to bait others however I`m not sure she was from over there.
I was accused of being a Tony sock which if she had read my posts she would have known that unless TB can flit between two countries 1500 miles apart, it is just not possible.
Trolls are clever in that they pick subjects that will press buttons with certain people. If it hadn't been conspiracy theories it would have been something else.
Don't let it worry you.

Well peeps I accept that she was rude and that it's not very pleasant to be on the wrong end of it. But I think I understand her position in that she was basically very scared of the implications of what we were discussing, which is fair enough becuase it's not nice to realise that things like 9/11 and 7/7 were carried out by people who are supposed to be on our side.

Honestly chirpy, don't make the mistake of thinking I'm nice! I'm absolutely the opposite. It's just I can have sympathy with a poster who finds that the cards are stacked against them and that they're persona non grata, and then wants to delete their accounts and simply disappear.

I have some sympathy too but it was a bit of a bull in a china shop introduction.

There are some crazy theories and people out there, no doubt about that, but you can't dismiss them all. Do those of us who don't believe the McCanns (or 9/11 just as one example) deserve to be dismissed as nutty fantasists?

I certainly don't think so.

Your right Freedom,
9/11 ~ pull it, explosions and falling the way demolitions would?
Robbie Parker ~ laughing, then composing himself for a speech?
GM ~ laughing just hours after daughter apparently abducted by a horrible person?
None of it adds up, that's why questions need answers.
IMO

Actually not quite,i also know something else Millwall lost today because they are currently crap !

Please prove it is possible to land a mecchano set on the Moon and why there are no pictures of the relics of such an adventure bearing in mind the power of satelite photography ?

And the man calling himself blacksmith has,by his own admission,until the 26h Jan 2015 (give or take a bit),to prove he is not a complete arse.

As to point 2 I'm surprised  that Blair didn't go for the most likely explanation:  WMD's were found! (Weapons of minimum destruction such as large quantities of bricks and weapons of medium destruction such as ... i leave it to you .  Very Happy

For anyone that still believes that there really was a man on the moon read Nasa Mooned America by Ralph Rene.

i feel your pain where millwall are concerned. currently we don't have the technology in low earth orbit but there is or was a japanese, i think, satellite that orbited the moon and returned photographs of some of the landing sites showing what could only be described as a human presence and activity. don't know what blacksmith is supposed to be proving. enlighten?
