Why we shouldn't participate in discussion of political conspiracy theory.

  1. Because the attention causes the conspiracy theory aficionado to feel like they are engaging in meaningful and important dialog.

    I completely agree, baloney.

    Have you ever tried to scoop up a quart of sweet feed to put into your horse's feed tub on a cold winter day, only to find that the molasses in the feed has bound it together in a solid frozen mass?

    I have.

    It sucks when this happens because you must use a large and very sharp knife to pick, and stab and pick and stab enough of the frozen blob to get a quart to quart and a-half of feed.

    It is a frustrating endeavor.

    I feel the same way when reading the conspiracy theory aficionado posts, and the responses to those posts.

    It is a frustrating and unsatisfying endeavor.

    Thank you for making the point so succinctly.
