That page makes no difference. Anti-GMO hysteria, government-sponsored mind control, UFO coverups, 9/11 Truth. That's paranoid bullcrap IMO. Conspiracism is a disorder, and anyone can have it.

I think one of the other created threads (that currently has no replies) might be a big clue.

It's complete and utter rubbish, suitable only for the pathetically gullible and stupid.

Took me less than a minute to find an outright lie without even having to leave the home page.
Government documents released through the Freedom of Information Act show top Pentagon generals once approved plans to foment terrorism and kill innocent civilians in major US cities.
Among other problems with the claim, no friendly deaths were contemplated in Operation Northwoods. This is clear from a careful reading of the document, but conspiracists never read carefully when doing so would force them to question their beliefs.

Yeah, that was the first lie I spotted too. I don't think it's worth reading any further; for a website that claims to offer accurate information not to be able even to construct a set of headline bullet points without screwing up, is indicative of at best a failure to live up to the standards it claims for itself. I see it references the usual 9/11 crap too, via the usual gateway drug of JAQing off. Overall, it's worth less of my time than I've already spent on it.

Let me add my welcome to those you've already received.

I think you're reaching the point of diminishing returns, in terms of starting new threads. Take some time to discuss the topics you've already started and gotten responses to.

Also, take some time to participate in topics that other people have started. Try to limit yourself to one new rant thread a week. One a day is a bit much.

While we're giving suggestions, it's not necessary to surround your thread titles with special characters just to make them "stand out" more. It's not against the Forum rules but it is rather bad form.

Try new improved Woo-In™. Use it daily and it'll transform your thread topics from friendly banter to political extremism in just one week. But so gradually, no one will notice!

Worse the link supplied does not support what was written.

Well that didn't take long.
ShortHaxYT, you asked people here to tell you if this site was accurate.
People obligingly stepped up, looked at the site, and found it to be absolute rubbish. (I include myself in that number. 'Missing trillions', 'The US fomented radical Islam', 'media coverups' and the like. Bilge).
The least you could do is thank us for our efforts. Your question was answered. Why aren't you happy? You got the result you wanted.
No need at all to fly off the handle like that.

I could be wrong, but I think when they said the 'website was alien scum' they were referring to the one in the link, not the ISF.

Yes, I know.
My point was that. rather than accepting our criticisms, the OP has flown into a hissy fit and posted an exagerated strawman of what was said.
No-one here has described the CT site as 'alien scum'- this is the OP being sulky.

In the quote about the website being alien scum I did not mean ISF. The phrase was merely a joke to symbolize the conspiracies as "out-of-date." I didn't think you would think of it as me being sulky and exaggerating the OP. It was purely me make a hyperbolic joke
In all honesty,

I truly appreciate everyone’s efforts and commitments to to debunking my thread.

Yeah, I also thought (and continue to think) the OP was written tongue in cheek.

I did not read your post as tongue-in-cheek, probably as a result of seeing so many similar posts by CT-loving posters here over the years.
No insult intended, and apologies for not getting the joke.
The conspiracies are not 'out-of-date' though: ******** is an enduring quality. The site (wanttoknow, not ISF) is full of it.

It's a load of rubbish, some of it harmless conspiracy fluff, some of it downright dangerous. Nobody should go anywhere near it, and some of it should be taken down if the author had any sense of decency.

I scanned the "9/11 Facts Summary - 10-Page Summary of 9/11 Facts From Major Media" and found
  • it is prepared by Paul Thompson - 9/11 Truther, creator and manager of the 9/11 Timeline
  • it focusses on percieved holes and differing opinions
  • but never points to an alternative narrative
  • confirms that Al Qaida perpetrated 9/11
It is thus vaguely wooish, it's details are not outright wrong, but highly selective and extremely biased - and yet fails to support any 9/11 Conspiracy Theory

Look at their brief synopsis of the "top resources" for 9-11. The give David Ray Grifter's book, Omissions and Distortions, 9.5 out of 10 for accuracy.

It's a crackpot site. David Ray Grifter is a charlatan.

You need to read a little more carefully.
Hint: that isn't his real name.
