9/11 conspiracy theories

Jump to: navigation, search

Wait, wait ... are you arguing that making fun of false accounts of historical events is the same as denying true accounts of historical events. Are you an idiot, or trolling?

First of all, what is trolling? People get offended when you say stuff like the government did 9/11and stuff because this was such an horrific day in American history no one likes to challenge the mainstream. If a conspiracy theorist personaly tells a family of an alternate way their loved one died they would break down. I'm not the idiot here, you guys just aren't grasping this concept. Now, is it really a life changing deal if one out of a million snark statements on this wiki is taken down?

"Trolling" is a way of fishing where a hook with a bait is dragged through the water.

As for the 9/11 bit, there is such thing as "context", and there is a large difference between a sentence in an article on a wiki known for its sense of humour, and the same sentence spoken in isolation from other sentences on a New York street.
