MB > "... provide credible evidence, showing precisely what happened to MH370 and the cause, and why Boeing, Rolls Royce, satellites, black boxes, mobile phones etc. were unable to help locate it  ..."

Brings this to mind:

"But conspiracy theorists always apply a double standard, in at least three ways. One is the burden of proof: the 'official story' is automatically suspect while the conspiracy theory merely has [to] achieve a 'not-impossible' status in order to supposedly be taken seriously. Another is in the depth and scope required for the theory: the 'official story' has to account for every bit of evidence in order to be believed, but a conspiracy theory is allowed to exist in a general handwaving form that explains nothing. Finally, the smallest unaccounted detail manages to doom the 'official story,' but no [amount] of failed details, big or small, ever dooms a conspiracy theory because its proponent simply invents more speculation to account for it."

[typos corrected]

At the moment, the 'official story' regarding MH370 is essentially: "we don't know".
