Hello David and List,

By God! Aren't you describing a true blue conspiracy theory?

I will avoid this pitfall as described here:

http://www.nowandfutures.com/spew_tools.html

It is titled: How To Detect And Bust Spew Freaks, Politicians,
Liars, Etc. First - Learn Their Tricks And Slimy Ways:

As we get to the fifth rule of disinformation, we can read:

"Sidetrack opponents with name calling and ridicule. This is also
known as the primary 'attack the messenger' ploy, though other
methods qualify as variants of that approach. Associate opponents
with unpopular titles such as 'kooks', 'right-wing', 'liberal',
'left-wing', 'terrorists', 'conspiracy buffs', 'radicals',
'militia', 'racists', 'religious fanatics', 'sexual deviates',
and so forth. This makes others shrink from support out of fear
of gaining the same label, and you avoid dealing with issues."

Simply put: it would be dishonest to use the term "conspiracy
theorist" against those who, so effectively, use the same term
to end an argument before it even started.

I simply wished _this_ wasn't used on the other side of the aisle
also.

We should know better.
