Snipping some very wise words (and not just for MONGO), there is one
important facet missing. MONGO's problems arise in no small part from
the extreme determination of a small group of lunatics, the 9/11
conspiracy theorists. These people are barking mad, and MONGO
enforced and enforces policy against them, in the process (and
probably at least half intentionally) proving to them that their mad
theories are both mad and negligible. They absolutely hate that, and
they would hate it whoever was the messenger.
Without disagreeing that they're barking mad (and scientifically and
engineeringally incompetent, as well), there have been tendencies by
him and others on WP to overly marginalize any 9/11 conspiracy
There are many barking mad things we have articles and sometimes whole
topic trees on.
I think we serve the project and readers badly by marginalizing it. A
lot of people are curious about it; showing the theories openly and
exposing them to the light of day is more effective.
