Pilots For 9/11 Truth Forum _ Alternative Theories _ New Rules For Posting In Alt Theories Forum

Posted by: painter Aug 13 2007, 03:56 PM

First of all, any topic discussed in this forum is not to be construed as being supported by the Pilots for 9/11 Truth organization. This forum is for the discussion of hypothesise that are of general interest to members of our community.

NEW RULE: All discussion in this forum from now on (August 13, 2007) must remain civil. By this I mean more than refraining from obvious insults. if you state or imply that someone is "stupid" or "crazy" or in any other way insult a poster's intelligence, you will be given a warning from an Administrator or a Moderator. I will allow TWO such warnings, beyond that your posting privileges will be suspended. This rule will apply to everyone in this forum -- Administrators, Moderators, long time members as well as more recent members alike. If you do not feel you can be civil, polite and refrain from even the most subtle ad homonym attack I encourage you to NOT post in this forum.

One further note: I define DISINFORMATION as any information which makes claims of fact that cannot be reasonably drawn from the evidence provided. I base this definition on the observation that most of the claims of fact by our government concerning the events of 9/11 are not substantiated by their evidence (when they bother to provide any at all). You may very well "believe" that your "theory" is correct based on your research and your evidence -- as, indeed, most people "believe" that the 'official conspiracy theory', or the 'official narrative' of 9/11 is accurate. However, it is one thing to state "such and so MAY be true" and back that up with information and evidence that reasonably substantiates your contention, evidence which can be evaluated by others. It is quite another matter to state unequivocally that "such and so IS true," when the evidence provided is not sufficient to reasonably draw that conclusion. The former is a statement to be evaluated, the latter is stated as fact not warranted by the evidence and is, therefore, disinformation.

In other words, MAKE YOUR CASE -- and don't insult those who aren't persuaded by it.
