Forgive for getting in the middle of your conversation with the Mods, but I think they might say something like:
"If it's been debunked beyond a reasonable doubt, we'll throw a 'Hoax' label on the whole thread. Unfortunately, when some people claim that
something has been 'debunked' they only mean that they think their own position has won out, and no reasonable person could have the opposite view.
That may or may not be true."
For instance, has global warming been debunked? Have critics of global warming been debunked? I don't think the Mods would claim either is the
case. Even evolution - creationism is still the subject for honest discussion. has either been "debunked?"
I'm not sure the Mods want to start saying, officially, that one position is correct and the other is wrong.
