Many would argue that most of the existing threads could be moved there, no?
The ultimate decision about applying the HOAX label rests at the Administration level, and is not done lightly. There's a huge difference between
someone being incorrect, and a hoax.
I don't agree most of the threads could be moved there, even if many would argue that point. I think much of what we discuss here represent
unresolved issues... things we just don't know. Some I view as completely frivolous, some not. A call we allow each member to make individually.
That's where the discussion comes in. A search for some answers to settle an issue one way or the other. And just because an issue is settled in
one direction doesn't necessarily mean the other perspective represents the side of a hoax.
But that's just me. You're free to make the argument on an individual case basis thread by thread. I'm all for settling whatever we can. The
more we can reduce the signal-to-noise ratio on anything, the greater likelihood we'll be able to reach an understanding of the issue.
