Kinda like might happen if there were 100s of our recent trolls submit junk at once. It's harder and harder to find good info there.
Yea... I linked to that forum earlier in the thread. No, I agree with you. It's ridiculous. I just want them to rule it out officially is all.
I haven't checked that forum in a while though, so thanks for letting me know it was ridiculed. In the end, I'm still seeing the highest probability being a crash for some unknown reason at some unknown location in the ocean, Strait of Malacca, etc. But in the absence of information, my imagination can sometimes get the better of me.
The past couple days I feared this would become an Amelia Earhart situation, but today I think we'd have to find it eventually. There are just too many countries searching for it. Plus, thanks to wikipedia, I learned about Adam Air Flight 574, where it was ten days before anyone found signs of wreckage, and that was even with information of where the plane generally was when it went down.
