I think one of the biggest

I think one of the biggest things you'll notice about conspiracy theorists is that all information, unless if it is from their source, is manipulated in some way. Thus, if the government releases a report that is considered to be credible by the vast majority of people who have opinions that matter (e.g., scientists), nobody on the conspiracy side will care. Of course, some things are easier to prove than others, but yeah...

I'd say the thing that bothers me about conspiracy theorists the most is that the news they listen to is every bit as sensationalist as the news sources they deride, but it doesn't bother them because they agree with their viewpoint.
