The Conspiracy Thread (post your suspicions here.)

    My hubber score has gone down another point.
    I was considering posting a new hub, but changed my mind.
    My theory is that a HPs staffer detected my mouse hovering over the "start a new hub" option and when I failed to engage, an alarm went off.
    Lack of ambition = -1 point.


    Do you have any conspiracy theories you'd like to share with the class? It doesn't have to be HPs related.

      Yes, I have a theory: I suspect Taylor Swift's career was launched by nefarious entities for the specific purpose of making One Direction look like musical geniuses by comparison. And by the gods, her dastardly handlers are nearly succeeding!

          Here in the UK they gave us 'McBusted' for the same reason. This is a merger of the pop groups 'McFly' and 'Busted'.

      Hate to bring this up because it's controversial, but I guess that's the point of this thread anyway. I think the allegations against Stephen Collins and Bill Cosby are part of some conspiracy. It's strange how these similar allegations are happening all of a sudden,;and there's been a couple more of these allegations things that I can't remember right now. Either they made some powerful people mad or some powerful people are trying to influence our perceptions in a general way.

      Yes, sounds whacky and now I look whacky, but there's something suspicious about the whole thing. I'll go ahead and admit two things: (1) The incidences of allegations could be a total coincidence. And (2) there's no way for us to know the truth of it all.

      Who tapes a confession during a counseling session, with the Stephen Collins thing? Why does everyone come out all at once about the thing with Bill Cosby?

        Yeah, these are heartbreaking stories. It would restore our hope in humanity if they were fake... which seems like a backwards kind of thing to say.

      That's a punishable offense? I know I don't take good pics, but to publicly punish me for it? Lil harsh.

        Oh Beth, let me clarify..urchin is also short for sea urchin, the kind that doesn't move much! I was basically inferring that you're on the forum a lot.  But rest assured, there was no malice in my statement, just poking fun..I in fact enjoy your copious forum posts!

          Well I do have a water vascular system. Plus, sea urchins are vital for the survival of other living creatures surrounding them. They have many predators due to this. So you could be right.

          As far as your conspiracy... why don't you just infiltrate their regime and get a job there as a waiter? That way, *they would actually pay *you to catch them in the act.

    I forgot to mention my conspiracy. 

    So there's this really great Jamaican restaurant two blocks from my apartment that my friends and I frequent..and I have a burning suspicion they've been passing off generic cola as Coca cola..that's not okay! My friends are neurotic as I am, so we're not about to accuse or offend people that handle our food--thus, we've come accustomed to the charade.

    I have an conspiracy theory. Creatures from other planets are amongst us and use internet forums to spam links to other sites.

      If only there were some way to prove this theory.

      (In the meantime, I've gone down another point.)

    I've noticed when I stay away from the forums for awhile, my score goes up. I'm pretty sure it's HP's way of saying thank you. big_smile

    Have you read somethgblue s articles? Check out his profile page and browse a few if you have not. He is the king of conspiracy theories.

      So is Claire, the one who posts on the religious forums. I believe her entire page is conspiracy theories.

    My conspiracy is that the powers that be at Hubpages actually like when I stay away - since I tend to be brass and bold. So the longer I am away - the higher my hubber score. It's odd. smile
