Conspiracy Site Bans "Sandy Hook" Speculation
A very well-known conspiracy site has banned speculation about the Sandy Hook shooting.

I'm not sure I should explicitly name this site, but I'll just say that it's got the words "Top Secret" in its name. You know the one I mean.

The site has not banned discussion of the topic altogether, however, it looks like they have prohibited certain TYPES of speculation. It's okay to talk about, but NOT okay to speculate that it was a false flag, or that any of the participants are actors.

Basically they're allowing speculation WITHIN THE REALM OF THE OFFICIAL STORY ONLY, it seems!!!!


The administrators even made a couple highly empassioned posts about this, and sent a mass mailer to all memebers. In the posts they pretty much guilt tripped, and shame-on-you'ed everyone who was speculating, ridiculed them, and warned that bans or all-out-topical-prohibition may result if it continues.

It looks like they may have deleted more threads, too. Long ones, with tons of interested participants. Not 100% about that one, as I haven't looked too hard yet. But threads which were getting a new reply every few minutes, and were on the front page for days are now impossible to find after browsing a few pages back.

For those of you who follow this site, you will know the last time the admins spoke this strongly about an issue, and tried to steer its discussion in one particular direction (or I should say AWAY from one particular direction) was regarding 9/11 discussion. Go ahead and try to start some "non plane theory" threads over there and see what happens.

I don't know about you, but to my nose this stinks to high heaven.

What say you?

I agree 100%. Also there are trolls that are purposely making statements that violate the t&c on the site, to get the threads deleted!

This is unsuprising. For me it doesn't so much suggest evidence that the site in question has been "compromised" but rather, the site admin is more worried about repuation and loss of ad revenue.

Those ad people are quick to pull their ads from any site which might make them look bad, especially high profile advertisers like the site in question is affiliated with.

Either way though, surpression of speculation is a bad thing.

If the parents of the dead children are not acting and going through horrific trauma do you not think that it's disrespectful to conspire against them online.

There is no proof the victims are in on it, i for one do believe real children with loving families were killed during this massacre and the subject should be approached with compassion.

Over there I see the same four tards derailing the threads making it look like a drama fest. Whining "go spend christmas with your families instead of discussing this tragedy!"
I guess forgetting they are the over dramatic tards creating the drama.
Go figure.

Thank goodness!

They are not banning speculation. They are banning false accusations about people without evidence. They are banning libel which is a good thing.

To all you GLP tards, ease off the wild speculation that such and such person is part of the conspiracy because you have a hunch or because something just didn't seem right about them.

Just discuss the facts. Don't falsely accuse.

If you don't mind, please don't lump all skeptics into one homogenous group. Some of us just want to know the truth about what really happened. I, for one, never "conspired" against anybody, nor did I say the victims were in on it.

Victims of atrocities like sandy hook and 9/11 deserve to know the truth about who (or what) killed their loved ones. That is the ultimate gesture of respect to the victims: pursuing the truth. I'm not here to make a name for myself.

Not sure I agree with this take.

And even if it were true, alienating and silencing YOUR AUDIENCE to satisfy your advertisers makes no business sense whatsoever, as much as they'd like you to believe it does. Without an audience, ad revenue is non existent.

Disrespectful to the families? Maybe in theory only. It's not like these people are on the internet looking themselves up, so they can read everything about the event possible. Assuming the official story is true, these people are mourning, not re-living the tragedy via speculation on a conspiracy site.

They are very obviously trying to steer the direction of the discussion, and shame or threaten a ban on anyone who would dare open their mouths.

I never accused any one personally of any wrong doing all I am saying is these are the reasons why they would ban such discussion on the said website.

I too am a skeptic else I wouldn't be here. Some of the accusations regarding the victims and their families though I find painful to read as a lot of them are disrespectful and have little if any evidence to back them up.

Hello Bill and Springer.


And it's not libel because it's not an official news source and no one would confuse it as "news," or anything other than the speculation it was stated to be.

Oh, I should add "What facts?"

What "facts" are appropriate to discuss?

The ones given to us by the mainstream media, and those only?

Yeah, awesome line for a conspiracy site-- "just stick to discussion of what the media has been saying... anything else is disrespectful."

I used to really like that place back in the day, but the shills are stronger here and I'm drawn to strongly shilled topics. "Evidence" as defined by that site is whatever the mods want it to be. Banning topics from discussion is not smart business, and to "Deny ignorance" does not mean banning ignorant discussion but confronting it.

In this case, yes I will. And I'm far from the only one. Nothing said HERE is likely to make me believe otherwise. They would need to change or drastically clarify this policy.

It is obvious censorship.

The stated reasons are logically unsound.

They are also engaging in classic cointelpro tactics (ridicule, shame) as if threat of the ban hammer were not enough.

As stated, the only other time I've seen them react this strongly in the way of trying to threaten long-time members (there's that alienating the audience again) and steer discussion was the 9/11 no planes thing... and look how many people think THAT was a conspiracy.

What else are we supposed to believe?
