Dear readers, I'm a bit disappointed in some of you.

We recently ran a story on the debunking of the Sandy Hook conspiracy theory video by the anti-hoax site Snopes.com, and the response was both bewildering and frustrating.

"Perhaps snopes should do some digging into the TRUTH," commented Brandx.

Wait, what?

The second article has been commented as well. This part caught my eye:
Quote:
You say there are twenty families with dead children? Well, where are they? We know two alleged parent couples and they have sucked up the limelight. One of them has been called out on an extremely suspicious public reaction that, unlike any from Columbine or other tragedies, almost comes across as smug and deceitful.
The fact that a parent whose child has been killed doesn't show his or her grief in public in the expected way is proof that they are actors? Wouldn't someone setting up a conspiracy choose actors who are able to show grief in a most theatrical way?

Just because the conspirators are incompetent doesn't mean that there's no carefully orchestrated incredibly complicated conspiracy. (Or something....)
