It's Complaint Choir Season

Here ya go, from a Slashdot commenter, a dissection of today's newest tskandal in the climate-conspiracy category:

"... in Jan 2006 the BBC held a meeting ... to decide BBC policy on climate change reporting
The BBC has been in court blocking FOI attempts to get the list of the 28 attendees, but it’s just been discovered on the wayback machine ...."

It could be postulated that without a conspiracy narrative, the wingnuts have even less than the nothing they already have.

Which could be considered the definition of wingnuttery.

Am always surprised by these calls for a "conspiracy narrative". AFAIK there is no "conspiracy" involved in this case as the seminars were put together in the open by known organizations.

What has happened is that a Big Bully in the form of a Big Corporation has lost its $200k fight against a pensioner (Newbery), and a felllow internet user (me).

It would be quite strange to find out you guys prefer to be on the Big Bully's side after all the mentions of Big Oil and the likes. But strangeness is the name of the game.
