People will make basic physics errors.  People very insistent on making
basic physics errors will continue to make them regardless of any and all
corrections offered, so at some point it becomes obvious that continuing
to disprove them is of no value.

Not that the proponents are right, just that continuing to debunk takes
time and energy that can be better spent examining theories that have a
much higher likelihood of being right, and whose proponents are more
interested in finding the truth than in the appearance of being correct.

(If one is highly concerned about seeming to be correct, one is often in
the wrong.  If one is not concerned about being found out to have
personally believed things that are not true, one is far more able to
eventually adjust one's beliefs to that which is true.)
