Mystery surrounds 'Conspiracy Banksy' discs

Who is the mysterious individual responsible for leaving the discs ? Image Credit: sxc.hu
Packages of CDs containing files about popular conspiracy theories have been turning up around Wales.
Residents in the Welsh Valleys have been left perplexed by the packages which have turned up in random locations with the words 'please read and ask questions' written on the outside.

The discs contain hundreds of files detailing a wide range of conspiracy theories about NASA, the US government, fast food chains and recently deceased celebrities who "aren't actually dead".

The individual responsible for leaving the packages has yet to be identified but his antics have earned him the nickname 'Conspiracy Banksy' on social media.

"Apparently a couple have been found in the Rhondda," said warehouse worker Lloyd James who was there when his boss discovered one of the packages outside the building.

"I haven't got a clue who left it. There's definitely a very big conspiracy theorist around here somewhere. It interested me, because I was massively into them as a teen."

"Not so much now, but somebody around here is definitely into them quite a lot."

The problem with conspiracy theories is that they have a extremely negative connotation. It is not even a theory it's a hypothesis as to what has or will occur. So right there it is wrong. It's a Hypothesis. And it suddenly becomes a conspiracy when the establishment pushes against it with its propaganda media arms(all major news media) and by literally calling it a conspiracy which invalidates all evidence, logic, reasoning etc. behind the hypothesis.   I think that if anyone has a reasonable explanation for an event with circumstantial or even hard evidence just to screw with the establishme...

Why CD's? Edit: Although I can see how CD's would be viewed as 'conspiracy disks' by the younger generations.

Indeed, all of the ingredients of a hugely imaginative prank. Perhaps, a tickler for an upcoming video game. Or, maybe part a school assignment or thesis to determine the rapidity of "going global" or measuring the effects of misinformation. Our posts have potentially become someone's data points.
