Conspiracy Theorists

Conspiracy Theorists

While blogging may be your hobby, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t put your heart into it. There is no reason to blog if your plan isn’t to give it your all. Instead, you have to ensure that the content you create is high quality and offers the reader exactly what they are looking for. If you want to turn your blog into the best around, read on to find out more.

Blog

What is trending right now? How can you get in on it? If everyone is talking about a current event, give your take on it – as long as it isn’t offensive. For example, any blogger which claimed the Boston Bombings were just a “false flag” operation run by the government would quickly find that their site loses visitors and only retains conspiracy theorists. This is great for a blog titled “Bob’s Anti-Government Views”, but if your blog is actually “Jenny’s Green Mom Tips&#Blogging8221; you’ll destroy your reputation. Stick to the theme of your blog and concentrate on the memes, events and other trends which will bolster your reader base. For example, Jenny could comment on current environmental legislation, as long as she focuses on the bill itself and not partisan politics.

Controversy

Social media is the best friend of the blogger! First, you can have your posts automatically repeated on your social media feed. You could post the title with a link to the post, or even a short summary created by your blogging software. This creates back links from your accounts as well as those of anyone who reposts your content, great for your search engine position. It also allows your reach to expand as anything which is “Liked” or “retweeted” or “repinned” goes out to anyone who follows the account of the person who reposted your content. If their followers like what they see, you’ll get more visitors to your site.

Good Sense Of Humor

Not only is social media good for building your readership, but it also gives you an avenue to build a relationship with your followers. You can post questions, like “What should I post about next?” or “What sort of prize would you want me to offer in a giveaway?” You can also reply to comments others leave on your posts, allowing you to remedy situations where people feel slighted, or just have a fun conversation. On top of that, you can create deep conversations on a variety of topics related to your niche which show the world you are an expert in the field. Be sure to keep your personal life off of your blog’s social media accounts unless the blog itself is about you and your family, otherwise people might be turned off.

Niche

Think about the blogs you visit – what brings you back? The same thing that makes you love those blogs needs to be your focus. Use these tips to turn your blog into a popular online destination. When you do, you will find you feel amazing for your accomplishment.

    What Is Your Definition Of A Conspiracy Theorist? Please don’t tell me what somebody else says about them. I want to know how you would define a conspiracy theorist and if you consider yourself to be one.
    Please good people, don’t start slamming each other. I am trying to keep this question on an intellectual level. I’ll repeat my question. “What is your definition of a conspiracy theorist and do you consider yourself to be one. I didn’t ask what conspiracy you believed in although I did ask that in another question which I put in the Social Science category.
    Wow Mr. Patriot. You certainly gave me a ton of stuff to digest. I better get to work. I tell you what bothers me about most people is not so much that they don’t believe in a particular conspiracy theory but that they reject outright the whole concept that conspiracies exist in this world. To them Conspiracy is a dirty word. whereas I believe that it is the meat of existence.

    • Not all, read every bit of material I can, rather pro or con and decide if there is any reasonable explanation for the theory.

      I just wanted to add that I almost passed out answering your question because that Mr. Patriot member never has a thought of his own. He posts that big mess even on questions that don’t address his issues at all. he is aggravating, even to folks that tend to agree with him. It would be better if he could answer the questions himself once in a while. Now, that is a theory lots of us can agree on!

    What Computer Languages Do One Need To Know To Build A Social Networking Or Blogging Website? I and some of my friends are planning to make some sort of website(social networking or blogging kinda) in PHP. What else should we learn except PHP to make a good website.
    The site should refresh the pages dynamically and it should look beautiful.

    • You can use any programming language that you want. I would use PHP because I know it very well and I am comfortable with it. If you ask someone who is very comfortable with Java, he will tell you to use Java.

      If you do not know any programming language, then you can use one of the following criteria to help you decide:
      * Easy to learn
      * Plenty of Documentation
      * Up to date documentation
      * Size of its community
      * Was the language built originally to make websites
      * Performance
      * Cheap (some language requires compilers that cost money, but most have free compilers or free interpretters)
      * Do you want to have to compile your website (java, C++, etc..) or interpreted (php, asp, python, etc..)

      I choose PHP because it’s easy to learn (but hard to fully master because easy to use bad techniques) and because there is a lot of up to date documentation (because of its massive community). You can also make it very fast (look at facebook) when using the right tools and programming properly.

      Here is some tips if you choose PHP to get started right:
      http://net.tutsplus.com/tutorials/php/30-php-best-practices-for-beginners/

      And there are tons of php freelancers (like me) who can help you get started right by giving you guidelines and reviewing your code and give you advice on how to improve it.

      As for the “look beautiful” part, any programming language would do because it has nothing to do with the programming language. To “look beautiful” you need good graphic skills and an experienced html/css/js integrator who can create the layout/template that looks right on most browsers.

      So you need to learn about:
      * HTML
      * CSS
      * Javascript
      * Graphic designs (and graphic design software like photoshop and friends)
      * Performance (ex: caching)
      * Maybe learn about a framework (or two)

      If you want to get started quickly, try a CMS like drupal which will allow you to create a social networking or blogging in a couple of days (or couple of hours if you know drupal very well). There are tons of modules (there are like plugins) which allow you to add functionality like voting which are social networking type of stuff. Drupal is written in PHP.

      Good luck :)

    What Blogging Software Does Yahoo! 360 And MySpace Use? I’m over at Flickr (also Yahoo! owned) and none of the choices for blogging are Yahoo! 360. I assume this is because 360 uses some other sort of blogging software. And, while I’m adding, what about MySpace blogs? I don’t really want to start another blog just to blog Flickr stuff, but I’ve been getting more into Flickr recently. I’ve got a tech blog at http://douglasawh.wordpress.com, but that’s primarily just to keep notes for work and I don’t want to put Flickr stuff on it. Thanks!

    • Flickr and Yahoo! 360 have too many bugs when working as a partnership. Flickr tends to blame all problems on Yahoo! 360. So there’s definitely incompatibilities. I’m not sure whether the blogging software is different or not.

      This group has been online a while – http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Y-360/ – the may be able to answer with specifics.

    What Is Social Media Optimization? Trying to find out more about the best social media to attract new visitors to my website- any ideas?

    • Social media optimization is a community-based marketing strategy that utilizes social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Stumplupon, YouTube, etc. to build brand awareness and raise recognition for the product or service being marketed. The focus is on driving traffic from sources other than search engines and engaging with blogs, discussion groups and other sites to promote specific content.

      The idea behind SMO is getting information out by “word of mouth” in the online world. Companies use it to facilitate communication between like-minded individuals who share messages, photos, forums, etc. about a product or service with the intention to gain new viewers and customers.

    Green Horse Refusing To Budge? I’ve started helping out at a friend’s yard to gain more experience with horses before looking to buy one in a few years. One of the horses there is really green (he’s 6 but hasn’t been ridden much) and when going out, when he gets about a mile away from the stables he stops and refuses to budge. He doesn’t rear up or buck, just refuses to move. The owner tried a lot last time to make him move – first by urging him on by riding him, then by dismounting and trying to lead him, then making loud noises behind him, and using a whip (wasn’t battering him!). He didn’t seem scared of anything – there was no machinery or anything like that around, and the other 2 horses there were fine and weren’t scared of anything.

    The horse was getting in a state (sweaty and shaky) so she turned around and went home – meaning he won. He was checked for injuries/badly fitted tack, and he was fine – on the walk home, he was perfect as well.

    Does anyone know of a good way to get him to walk on? I think because now he knows he won, he’ll just try it all the time.

    I don’t know much about horses so please don’t insult me – I’m trying to learn!

    • First of all, Jenny J, I don’t think that’s the kind of advice you should even waste all our time on.

      As for your question, there are a few good answers here already. Since he is green, my first question is how much ground training has he had? Has he been sacked out (desensitized) to “scary” things like plastic bags, tarps, loud noises, other animals etc? What is his position in the herd? Is he dominant or submissive to the other horses? With his owner, is he pushy on the ground, or generally misbehaves? This could all mean he is not confident in his rider, and doesn’t believe she can be his leader. That relationship needs to improve before much progress may be made. Go back to basics on the ground to build his trust and confidence.

      Also, does he always stop in the same place on the trail? There could be something there that is bothering him, but in the end that shouldn’t matter. He needs to realize he must go where he is asked. Turning him in circles at the spot he stops is very effective with most horses. Turning small circles is a lot of work, and they will try anything to avoid that! Also, I see he does have the company of other horses when this happens, so I would have the other horses walk on without him. Don’t wait for him to get over it. While the other horses are walking away, he will either follow (great!), or still not budge; it is then he must do the circles until he will walk on and follow the others. Be sure you are circling him with energy, not just asking him to circle at his own pace. Make him work! Keep in mind, he may get upset as the other horses are walking away. Too bad! You are supposed to be the leader, not him. Also he may try more drastic measures like rearing or bucking. Do not endanger yourself. If he does these things, and you are not experienced enough to handle it, get off! But do NOT go home. Longe him around you on the ground in his circles until he calms down and starts to respond…you may see lowering his head, licking and chewing, trying to come in to you. Get back on and try again. You are right that giving in and going home teaches him he can get away with it. Be sure you are wearing your helmet at all times while riding and ground training a green horse. Good luck!

    Are Some Of Us Conspiracy Theorists? Was 911 as it was reported in the news?

    Was crack introduced to the ghetto to hinder the minority population?

    How about abortion to control the population?

    Do you believe that sometimes you tread the line of being an avid conspiracy theorist? Name a few if you can (conspiracy theories).

    • A conspiracy theory alleges a coordinated group is and/or was secretly working together to commit illegal or wrongful actions including hiding the existence of the group and its activities. In notable cases the hypothesis contradicts what was or is represented as the mainstream explanation for historical or current events. The phrase is also used dismissively to label hypothetical speculation as being untrue or outlandish.The term “conspiracy theory” may be a neutral descriptor for any conspiracy claim. To conspire means “to join in a secret agreement to do an unlawful or wrongful act or to use such means to accomplish a lawful end.”[1] However, conspiracy theory is also used to indicate a narrative genre that includes a broad selection of (not necessarily related) arguments for the existence of grand conspiracies, any of which might have far-reaching social and political implications if true

      Perhaps the most contentious aspect of a conspiracy theory is the problem of settling a particular theory’s truth to the satisfaction of both its proponents and its opponents. Particular accusations of conspiracy vary widely in their plausibility, but some common standards for assessing their likely truth value may be applied in each case[citation needed]:

      * Occam’s razor – is the alternative story more complicated and therefore less probable than the mainstream story?
      * Logic – Do the proofs offered follow the rules of logic, or do they employ Fallacies of logic?
      * Methodology – are the proofs offered for the argument well constructed, i.e., using sound methodology? Is there any clear standard to determine what evidence would prove or disprove the theory?
      * Whistleblowers – how many people -- and what kind -- have to be loyal conspirators?
      * Falsifiability – Is it possible to demonstrate that specific claims of the theory are true, or are they “unfalseifiable”?

      The US academic Noam Chomsky contrasts conspiracy theory as more or less the opposite of institutional analysis, which focuses mostly on the public, long-term behaviour of publicly known institutions, as recorded in, e.g. scholarly documents or mainstream media reports, rather than secretive coalitions of individuals

      Despite the speculative nature of many conspiracy theories, mainstream world history contains numerous proven conspiracies, some of which were not the subject of any widespread speculation until they were exposed. Historical conspiracies include:

      * The Pazzi conspiracy, which included the Pope, of the late 1400s.
      * The Main Plot of 1603
      * The Bye Plot of 1603
      * The Gunpowder Plot of 1605
      * The conspiracy of 1865 to assassinate U.S. President Abraham Lincoln and members of his cabinet
      * The French government’s attempted cover-up following Emile Zola’s accusations in the Dreyfus Affair, starting in 1894.
      * The 1903 efforts by the Tsar’s secret police to foment anti-Semitism by presenting The Protocols of the Elders of Zion as an authentic text.[17]
      * The 1939 Operation Himmler and its Gleiwitz incident
      * Operation Mockingbird, from 1948. In 1976, then CIA director George H.W. Bush ordered that paid media recruiting would be prohibited.
      * The MKULTRA mind control program, from 1953 to late 1960s
      * The 1954 Lavon affair
      * The 1962 Operation Northwoods
      * The 1969 Manson Family murders
      * The 1972 Watergate burglary and cover-up
      * The 1984 Rajneeshee bioterror attack
      * The 1987 Iran-Contra Affair
      * The 1995 Sarin gas attack on the Tokyo subway

      Some theorists, like Charles Pigden argue that the reality of such conspiracies should caution against any casual dismissal of conspiracy theory. Pigden, in his article “Conspiracy Theories and the Conventional Wisdom argues that not only do conspiracies occur but that any educated member of society will be believe in at least one of them; we are all, in fact, Conspiracy Theorists. Authors and publishers, such as Robert Anton Wilson and Disinfo, use proven conspiracies as evidence of what a secret plot can accomplish. In doing so, they demonstrate that the label “conspiracy theory” does not necessarily indicate that a theory is false. Theories cited in making this case include those listed above as well as:

      * the Mafia
      * the Business Plot to overthrow Franklin Delano Roosevelt in 1933
      * various CIA involvements in overseas coups d’?tat
      * the 1991 Testimony of Nayirah before the US Congress to rally the support of the US public to launch the Gulf War
      * the Tuskegee Study of Untreated Syphilis in the Negro Male
      * the General Motors streetcar conspiracy
      * the plot by the British Secret Service to destabilize Prime Minister Harold Wilson, among others.[citation needed]
      * the plot by some gaullists of the French Secret Service to destabilize future president Georges Pompidou, known as the Markovic affair
      * the series of incidents in Italy connected to the so called “strategy of tension”
      * Operation Gladio

      These arguments also suggest that interested readers do their own research to come to their own conclusions. This particular suggestion is often missing from conspiracy theories that lack merit.[citation needed]

      The argument is often advanced there cannot be a conspiracy without leakers or whistle blowers.[citation needed] Given the success of the British government in getting thousands of people to keep the ULTRA secret — and thereby ensuring that no reliable history of World War II could be published until the 1970s — it is apparent that this is not necessarily a reliable indicator.

    Serious Question For 9/11 Conspiracy Theorists? Why do SOME of the 9/11 conspiracy SKEPTICS at Y/A post such obnoxious Qs and As?

    1. Are they so very gullible that they believe everything the government and media tells them?

    2. Are they on neuroleptic medications, or perhaps drinking too much fluoride?

    3. Is it the result of the “dumming down” of our education system starting to show?

    4. Are they neocons or globalists?

    5. Are they too LAZY to read new info., or so NARROW-MINDED that their views are entrenched based on what they learned from the “official story”?

    6. Are they allowing themselves to be spoon-fed by the mainstream media?

    7. Are they incapable of critical thinking? Do they lack the intellect required to understand complex issues?

    Continued below???.
    8. Does it merely reflect poor up-bringing (bad manners and bigotry)?

    9. Are they just too STUPID to see what has become obvious to the majority of Americans – the Government is not being truthful?

    10. Are they mis-reading public reluctance to speak up as supportive of their view?

    Have they not yet learned that when Americans are asked in PRIVATE (polls), the majority do not COMPLETELY believe the government’s “official story” about 9/11?

    And the question is not directed at ALL the skeptics; rather, the obnoxious ones.

    What gives with these people? And what makes them seem incapable of debate without resorting to name-calling?
    LIL KIL. Read the question before answering. I didn’t call anyone names – I merely asked the question.

    And if you read the WHOLE question, you would see it directed only at the obnoxious skeptics, not all of the skeptics. I do not have a problem with POLITE skeptics. Everyone is entitled to an opinion and entitled to be respected .
    TRICKYGIRLB. Thank you for reading the entire question before answering. Your answer speaks directly to the point of my question. It seems that most people who are open-minded about the debate are (as are you ) able to speak of the opposing view without resorting to slanderous language.

    As you observed, the point to my question is not “why are they skeptical”. Rather then point is “why are so many of them so completley obnoxious about it.”
    JUSTGOODFOLK. Thank you for that thoughtful answer. It helps to hear the answer from the perspective of a “reasonable” skeptic.

    • 1) Yes some are no doubt. They do exist, 2) I don’t think so, 3)Definitely yes,4) Not all of them, 5) I don’t think so, they are more choosing to reject any other possibility than the official story. I have the impression and especially with the obnoxious ones you ask about they see questioning 9/11 as an attack on their country and even the victims. They are outraged.6) Who isn’t to a degree? Sure that plays a role.7) No, not all some make the conscious decision not to give this consideration for the reasons I mentioned in point five. 8) Yes
      9) Some are no doubt but some are not. You can believe the government is capable of lying even about important issues and still believe the official story about 9/11
      10) Yes

      As a skeptic myself I see no point in being obnoxious about it unless I’m called a Zionist disinfo shill, Neocon orsheeple of course for expressing my opinion. I don’t think the public got the full story but that doesn’t lead me to believe the common conspiracy theories either. This is my view on the issue for what it’s worth.

      In my opinion conspiracy theorists underestimate or even deny coincidence, look back at certain situations with hindsight and conclude it has to be an inside job while that’s not a very reasonable way to evaluate things. You can make anyone seem guilty if you do that. Another thing they do is point to who benefited and whether you agree with them there or not, even if they are 100 percent correct that people benefited from an event or used and abused it in itself doesn’t proof they caused it. Example, purely hypothetical, if someone crashes his car close to my house and and I steal his wallet that doesn’t proof I made him crash (just an example not out of real life of course, I don’t approve or condone crimes). They seem to not understand that. I believe a lot of things aren’t planned in life but people react. Conspiracy theorists see well planned machinations everywhere. I also know for a fact Alex Jones as well as the makers of loose change are liars.

    How To Get Connected Via Blogging? How to become a noticed blogger?

    • Blogging is a brilliant creative outlet. People need someone to listen to them, and a blog is perfect for that. You get to have a voice, you can voice your thoughts and opinions, and your blog reaches the people (and their ears) for you.

      Whether you blog for your own personal gratification, to get your voice heard, to gain exposure for a charity, to build a new online business, or get more customers to your existing business, blogs give you easy ways to network, advertise and brand your message.

      There are 2 types of blogs you can go for – A self hosted blog or Web 2.0 blog (Free blog).

      A self hosted blog is a website where you buy a domain name & hosting account & allows you to build a blog using user friendly software, WordPress is the most popular one.

      You may have heard of Blogger.Com or WordPress.com?! Sites like these offer a free blog where you can just sign up & build your blog on their site. These free blogs are reasonable but limited as the site owners can remove your content or terminate your account any time they like without notice.

      Professional bloggers also syndicate their blog content through social media accounts like Facebook & Twitter, you may want to look into creating a Facebook page for your anime interests, that way you can invite other people who have a similar interest & connect with them about your thoughts on current topics.

      If you really want to learn how to blog I would suggest searching the web for training, there is some really good blog training out there. Off the top of my head I say you should try ‘The Challenge’ which is free or just Google ‘Learn How to Blog’ & see what comes up.

      The main thing to think about if you want to get noticed is to become involved in your industry ie, comment on other blogs in your market with links back to your blog, contact your market leaders directly & engage with your market consumers. Joining industry groups is another way to grow in popularity but the main thing is to provide quality content that your market is looking for!

      Hope this answers your question, good luck! : )
