One of the more disappointing aspects of the fallout of this attack is the proliferation of nutter conspiracy theories on both sides.


I, too, have a conspiracy theory . I believe that Einstein was killed by the Mafia because he knew too much.

It wouldn't be surprising. It's not right that candidates as old as Clinton, Trump and Sanders are allowed to run for president.
Thats up to the American electorate, since your a Brit, butt out.

Despite protests to the contrary, Andy now says motivation and setting new goals has been an issue this year.

"I got to number one in the world at the end of last year and there's been some times this year where it has been difficult to keep up the motivation and set new goals," Murray said

I totally agree with that, yet the American people seem to be quite happy to vote for them.  I just don't get their line of thinking at all.

 I wonder this too.  There are so many good and uplifting stories coming out of this shit that I wonder what's really driving the news agenda.  Love may trump hate but hate seems to have real commercial and political value.
Just got to believe that goodness will prevail, or else what's the point?  Although, I'd not like to try saying this to the families who are left bereft by atrocities - be it here, Syria or anywhere else.

I wonder why this is?  It's not only disappointing, it's frightening.  As if extremist attacks aren't bad enough, without extremist reactions.

One of the more disappointing aspects of the fallout of this attack is the proliferation of nutter conspiracy theories on both sides. On the right, we have the Mensch "BURN TEH MULIIIIIMS" vileness. On the left, we have people like Rufus Hound accusing May of orchestrating the attack.

People are shits.

We don't mind simply because these tragedies aren't always reported, and if they are, only usually in passing.  Also the number of people involved is small, unless it happens to be a coachload of people, although again the number of fatalities is usually insignificant.
The loss of life is always tragic, but I find a massive difference between unfortunate 'accidents' and the deliberate massacre of others due to differences in religion or similar.  Shrug
