Waste of money. Why? Because there is also BostonMarathonConspiracy.us, or .org, or .net, or .me, or .tv, or .ru, or .de, or .fr........

Meh, then they'll just come up with a conspiracy as to why they can't register bostonmarathonconspiracy.com

Ethical cyber squatters?

This is why the other squatters can't have nice things, like beachfront property, luxury cars and full-length black sable coats.

.com domain suffix gets pretty much the amount of traffic of all the other suffixes combined.  It's the default go-to for people, and maybe seeing that message will snap some people out of their idiocy before they go actively searching for a conspiracy site.

There are a few of those ethical squatters who have done a good job.

NAACP holds a number of domains with explicit racism that go to a 404.

NAACP holds the big one: n*****.com. They were smart enough to get the domains early on before cyberspace became crowded.

I wonder if the people who read this kind of thing would discriminate against BostonMarathonConspiracy.blogspot.com as too amateurish.

I appreciate his efforts, but it won't stop much...if anything.

The tin-foil asshat brigade already have established sites.

It meshes well with existing conspiracies.  They already claim that Newtown was fake, and since the mile where the explosion happened was dedicated to the victims of Newtown, it's like a pre-wrapped conspiracy.

In the 15 years I've been on the internet, I don't think I've ever even considered the possibility that there would be an attractive and successful African American.com.

I think I've failed at the internet.

On the other hand, if the NAACP ever needed funds, they could probably sell that domain for millions.

Alex Jones is many things but he falls short of full-blown racism. He doesn't insinuate about it at all. Sure, Birtherism is racist. But for him, its not about seeing a black man in the white house; it is him seeing the New World Order as flexing their muscles to show how powerful they are by putting a non-American citizen in the Presidency. As well, to many people, because he doesnt speak ill about Jews, he has been deemed a false flag operation designed to lure people away from the real truth: that Jews control the world.

So in your mind he is doing something worthwhile? Maybe he can also go stand on the beach with an umbrella to protect us from the next hurricane.

I don't care if it's futile, if we all do enough futile things they add up quickly to become something more.
 
2013-04-16 04:11:24 PM  
The only good conspiracy names I could find available were freeconspiracy.com , available because naturally there are no free conspiracies, and ConspiracyHomes.com, which sounds like a lovely name for a real estate company somewhere, perhaps outside of Roswell.

Wow. What an incredible idiot. So automatically we have to buy the official story regardless of whether or not there are discrepancies/lies/story changes?? I'm not saying this was another 'inside job', but to automatically rule it out makes you a complete asshat. If theories develop that are completely retarded, they'll be just that - and no one will buy them. But if they point out inconsistencies/overlooked evidence, they're worth at least a look. We KNOW the FBI has been 'involved' in one way or another in many 'bombing plots' over the years (93 WTC) - you can pretend there is no precedent for this all you want, but you'd be dumb.
 
2013-04-16 04:13:59 PM  
I knew this would happen, which is why I already bought BostonMarathonConspiracyDotComConspiracy.com, to tell the truth about government shill buying webpages in order to discredit good honest folk who are just asking questions.

That, aside from being just plain sensible and decent, is a very long troll.

cman:

... and that is why conspiracy-ism is an eventual trip down the rabbit hole of distorted thinking and mental illness.  ANY evidence contradicting the theory can be dismissed with "cover up!" or "looks like THEY got to him".  Eventually you have a never-ending Matrioshka doll of layers of conspiracy, involving many thousands of people who are supposedly in on the big secret... which they effectively hide from everyone except a couple of foil-hatted loons blogging from their mobile home.  It makes for a good episode of The X-Files, but IRL it's just crazy.

It's good to see such a selfless act, especially when the second act is forwarding your one's own Press Kit to highlight ones goodness.

OK so unlike the popular 9/11 "theories" it is at least plausible that the guberment faked this, it being a simple matter of throwing a bag in a trashcan not smuggling tons of thermite into some of the busiest buildings in the world.

Alright, so why would they do it?
