The text contains a study of how people discuss conspiracy theories online, and how this discussion is affected by people's worldviews. The study found that people who tend to believe in conspiracy theories (conspiracists) are more likely to argue against the opposing view and less likely to put forward their own view, while the opposite is true for people who don't believe in conspiracy theories (conventionalists). The study also found that conspiracists are more likely to express mistrust and make more positive and fewer negative references to other conspiracy theories.
