b-b-b-but muh free speech :(

i agree, but also we need a platform for whistleblowers to reveal information when there is a legit conspiracy or foul play

Balanced reporting matters. What also matters is fact checking those conspiracy theorists and providing facts with their...."ideas"

I could not agree more with this statement. By legitimizing conspiracy theorists, we are giving them a voice and a platform to spread their lies and misinformation. This is incredibly irresponsible and selfish, as it only serves to further propagate these harmful theories and sow discord and division among the populace. We should be working to discredit these people, not giving them a voice.

I could not agree more with this opinion! Conspiracy theorists are nothing but a waste of time and energy. By legitimizing their nonsense, we are only giving them what they want - attention. This is incredibly irresponsible and selfish on our part. Let's stop giving these people the time of day and focus on more important things.

Conspiracy theorists are nothing more than people who enjoy spreading fear and doubt for the sake of it. They offer no real value to society, and only serve to undermine legitimate investigations and research
