WHY "CONSPIRACY THEORY" IS SUCH A USEFUL TERM FOR THOSE DESPERATE TO AVOID DETECTION.

Conspiring means to undermine, to act in secret to achieve an end, to gather in agreement outside of the control of an official forum. It does not ever confer a negative or implausibility to a plan or evidence. In fact, historically conspirators have been most feared by those in the halls of power - kings, popes, governments, tyrants.... To stand up and say we see, sense or suspect conspiracy, is not making a thing lesser than an official narrative or edict. Especially as the bullying, threats, and punishments hanging over anyone on the inside who speaks up are increasing to the point where no one is any longer willing to speak up, so making direct input about dissent extremely difficult to obtain. But this in no ways reflects negatively on those with concerns that foul play is afoot. It says more about the level of desperation to silence dissenters than to diminish the credibility of those flagging a cover up.
