Ah, one's a straw man and the other's a coping mechanism. Carry on.
What exactly do you think you accomplished here? Because it seems like you strawmanned me by saying I was using a strawman, and Armok only knows what the coping mechanism thing is supposed to be.

Engraved here is a rendition of an image of the Dwarf Fortress learning curve. All craftsdwarfship is of the highest quality. It depicts an obsidian overhang which menaces with spikes of obsidian and tears. Carved on the overhang is an image of Toady One and the players. The players are curled up in a fetal position. Toady One is laughing. The players are burning.

A friendly reminder to be civil is in order methinks.

Also new topic: actual proven conspiracies. Tuskegee syphilis experiment, St. Louis radioactive sprinkler water, etc.

Oh! How about Roswell? Not the aliens part, just the coverup of Project Mogul.

Sure. You know, I assume, of the Roswell Incident, where debris from an unidentified flying object (used here in the literal sense) was found in 1947? The government said it was a weather balloon, while UFOlogists claimed this to be a coverup for the recovery of an alien spacecraft, and so a half-century of UFO tourism began.

As it happens, there was a coverup and the debris was not from a weather balloon; it was, instead, part of Project Mogul, an attempt to detect Soviet nuclear tests by the sound of their explosions via microphones carried to high altitudes on balloons, as the government admitted in the 90s.

the coverup of Project Mogul.
Did you mean to say the false information spread to convince the less-trusting parts of the public that these were military balloons and not aliens?

Just like they admitted to Iran contra, a multitude of coups d'état in south america and the one that got Komeini in power... Is it still considered fringe to take Zbigniew Brzeziński seriously in 2018? Can we ever truly close the case on such matters? If history is a science, the models are expected to be progressing. But since I consider 90% of mainstream discourse propaganda, I might not be the most finetuned guy to anticipate what is fringe and what not.
