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.
