Conspiracy Theories You Won't See Many Arguments About Online

Do quantum computers already exist?  Did humans intervene in the famous 1997 chess match between Gary Kasparov and Deep Blue?  A math and physics blog lists some fun conspiracy theories that various computer scientists have raised.  Somehow I don't see a lot of cranks getting involved in these - Pascal Boyer observed that physics cranks ("I've disproved quantum physics!") usually don't go much beyond algebra.
