    Since then, multiple users and groups thereof have used the prohibition he enunciated, illegitimately, IMHO, to try to silence and suppress analyses and hypotheses that they disagree with, both those which are technically CT and those which are not.
    This diary has nothing to do with standards at Daily Kos, standards of logic, and certainly not any commonly understood meaning of the phrase "Conspiracy Theory" or its component words.

    It's beautifully formatted, well written, and it's your opnion.  Nothing more.

    Too Folk For You. - Schmidting in the Punch Bowl - verb - Committing an unexpected and underhanded political act intended to "spoil the party."

      theory as that term is used here, nor Cointelpro. As used here, an asserted conspiracy must be known in advance of the assertion to be false in order to qualify as CT.

      That, in its essence, is fascism--ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or by any other controlling private power. -- Franklin D. Roosevelt --
