    unrelated standards.

    Arguing that something is true unless and until proven false is a fallacy (argumentum ad ignorantum).

    CT however, isn't CT unless it is false, so HRing it just because you don't believe it is actually nothing more than HRing for disagreement, which is well established to be HR abuse.

      If someone is alleging a conspiracy, and they are not providing evidence to substantiate their allegation, they are presenting conspiracy theory.  Full stop.

      This bit about "it's only CT if it's false" is unsupported by any dictionary on earth... you've completely invented that bit to mislead people into accepting your definition.

      OK that's unfair: It's also possible you don't know what the words mean.

      But either way, your'e flat out incorrect about what a conspiracy theory is.

        does not remotely accord with the historical usage on this site by such as Kos, MB, et. al. Watergate wasn't CT, nor cointelpro, just because some folks were in denial about them.
