But the second group is probably a subset of the first group.

Conspiracy theorists only bother me because they generally come from a position that presupposes a conspiracy. They don't look at the evidence first and draw a conclusion, instead they suspect a conspiracy first and then make the evidence fit. They don't see what they are doing though so they will deny it.

Conspiracies exist but they tend not to be grand schemes with millions of moving parts. They are the things we will never really know about like price fixing and political payoffs. Rather boring but a lot more influential on our daily lives.
