What is your favourite conspiracy theory on italki?
Maybe you just have no idea of what I am talking about, but allow me enlighten you.
While reading some of the discussions, I found some interesting theories, such as:
- If you write the name of a certain Homer book, you’re banned from the site
- Some users disappear, then “reincarnate” in other profiles
- Some people pretend to be native speakers to create a fuss
- Some native speakers pretend to be learners to troll people
What do you think about those theories? Have you ever heard any of them? Do you believe in them? Do you have any favourite one? Do you know any theory you would like to share?

Those theories don't impress me in the slightest. In fact, I think they were created as a cover-up. I believe this whole site was founded by my ex-husband who lured me here and is trying to extract from me my opinions and gauge my emotional state, using hired people to pose as users. Of course, I don't have an ex-husband but that's in fact really consistent with my theory - he would obviously use some sort of brainwashing to make me forget; then he would set me free and put this whole scam in motion to monitor my activity. Ha, that's some conspiracy theory, not pondering over Wolfy's nationality.

It is said that italki is secretly run by a mysterious lobby whose members are mouse wheels manufacturers and carpal tunnel surgeons. That explains why you can't skip to the end of a discussion easily.

I think italki might be a figment of my imagination. I'm really talking to myself, and teaching myself English (and learning a lot in the process). Or rather, I must be teaching my OTHER selves. Clearly I must have a very split personality.


What I can't figure, is how I can afford to pay myself all that money.

Add also people who speak "Other" as a native language. That really intrigues me!

I like the one where the lawyer claims to be poor. True, it's not a conspiracy, but it's good for a hearty laugh.
