Can't do theory

Anytime a somewhat theoretical article that is often based in the humanities turns up on the blue, it is only a matter of very predictable time until the thread fills with derails about how dense, difficult, obtuse, "academic", etc., the prose is. [more inside]

Conspiracy theorists turn up in implosion discussion

Ok, so I'm guessing that we should add building implosions to the list of "things we can't talk about on Metafilter?"

No more conspiracy theories!

Are crackpot September 11 conspiracy theories the best of the web? Do we need more posts like these? Twice in one week? I think not.

How about less conspiracy posts?

American concentration camps! Rex 84 and the trifecta of evil! How about less conspiracy posts? I'm pretty sure there are more that have already fallen off the front page, but, sheesh.

Where is my AskMe question about parallel universes?

So I posted a question about parallel universes on askmetafilter yesterday (got a bunch of great comments within the first hour) and when I checked in this morning I can't find the question either on the page or in the archives. Where is it?

Facts v Conspiracy theory

I feel like all I've done here today is bounce from thread to thread trying to remind people the difference between news/facts and rumor/speculation/conspiracy theory.

Are people really so ready to believe just about anything? Or is the thrill of posting the latest outrageous tidbit on the front page too damn hard to resist?
