Catchfire, what's the deal?
I can't even mention "Boston Bombing" (OMG!!!11!!) without you swooping in and closing the thread down.
The thread was about how discussion about conspiracy theories gets shut down, even in progressive, democratic forums. It was producing some good dialogue that was respectful and making headway on issues that actually need to be addressed here, as your actions so obviously demonstrate. And here you go again, shutting the conversation down, with a non-explanatory, "I don't see this conversation going anywhere." Are you being instructed by someone?
No, we have not made all our points -- clearly, since you have just shut another thread down.
If you don't want us mentioning "Boston Bombing" give us a heads up at least (and ideally an explanation of why) but let us continue the conversation we were having. Otherwise you were allowing Magoo to set me up.
