    Having got your attention (LOL) I think I've cracked this space nonsense - here's how it works:

    NASA and other space agencies publish 'news' (I've used the following link to demonstrate it); the space magazines add some 'colour'; the non-story is then picked up by probably thousands of advertising media because the editors know how many gullibles will latch onto the hyped-up story, thereby generating the all-important advertising revenue. Just look at the following link and see how many unrelated advertisements are on the page all because of one little snippet of news centred around Ultima Thule, then tell me I'm wrong?

    WTF are you on about. So the Metro is a space magazine do you actually read this stuff before clicking on the Post Reply button?

    This conspiracy stuff is really screwing up with your perception of reality. If you actually read the article and tried to understand the content (but why break the habit of a lifetime) you would see that from further analysis they have said is flatter than originally thought. So it's changed shape in a single axis.

    It's OK though no one expects you to read, look at any evidence or make an attempt at any level of comprehension before you go of another conspiracy rant, after all if you can't experience it yourself it must be fake according to your 'logic'.

    No, it's one of the non-related publications which I said picks up on space **** to attract advertising revenue? Read my post again, then apologise.

    Wrong forum AGAIN! :eek:

    This has NOTHING WHATSOEVER to do with Science.

    This is about the Tabloid Media and therefore belongs in the Media & Commentators forum.

    Kindly REFRAIN from TROLLING the Science forum with IRRELEVANT tabloid drivel that appears to be your ONLY source of "news.

    If this trolling persists it will be reported.

    Nope you talked about 'space' magazines and advertising media, if by advertising media you ment media publications (there not the same thing really) then the same must be send of eversingle non public broadcasting media as they are all reliant on advertising revenue. So unless you are going to broaden your accusation to include all of these, then once again all you have are wild accusations with no evidence.

    If you think having unrelated adverts on a page is how advertising really works then that's something else you don't understand.

    I'm an intelligent man, mate, and I understand more than you think I do. What I'm not is gullible!

    Then show some intelligence and provide some evidence of your claims as all you have done at the moment is shown your gullibility in believing in conspiracy.

    Sure if that helps you then fine, still waiting for some, any evidence for anything you're posting about.

    No wait, pick a topic where you're claiming i'm gullible and let's examine the evidence that I'm so gullible in accepting, good for you?

    I think I've given you enough of my board time this morning; we're obviously at opposite ends of the spectrum so maybe it's time for us to walk away?

    I'm surprised you haven't given your thoughts on my OP, Derideo_Te?

    What a shocker. Once again when being asked to provide evidence to support an assertion, cerberus finds himself too time poor to be able to do so.

    You can take is as anything you like; there are other threads which beckon.

    Providing evidence is a 2-way street, The Don.

    And yet when I provide supporting evidence for my claims, you complain because you don't have enough time to check the veracity and/or bias of the sources. It seems that if someone argues against your preconceptions then the arguments, and all evidence to support those arguments are dismissed out of hand.

    Look, posting effing links doesn't prove or disprove anything, it merely provides perspective.

    The thing is that when I provide a link I provide a brief summary of the content of the link and try to ensure that the link is relevant to the point at hand.

    Posting a link to an irrelevant subject without any kind of indication as to the link's content really isn't helpful.

    Look, I get it, you're uncomfortable with things that disturb your world view, prefer to dismiss them out of hand and keep yourself nice and cosy in your ignorance. The links I provide are likely of little or no use for people like you. Other, less partial, posters may get some use out of them.

    You mean the disciples? I agree about the links without commentary though - I always ignore them if there's no comment.

    Not really. I'm thinking more of posters without a specific knowledge of the subject but with some degree of curiosity.

    You also seem to ignore them if the commentary indicates that the information contained therein conflicts with your own views.

    That's what discussion is all about, isn't it - the exchange of conflicting viewpoints and opinions. Not much point in talking to someone who agrees with every word you say?

    When one party in a discussion refuses to support their own point of view with evidence, demands evidence and then ignores and/or dismisses all evidence provided by parties with a different point of view and then runs away declaring themselves the victor when their point of view becomes clearly untenable, this becomes old pretty quickly.
