I was just thinking after looking at a thread on here thats now been put into the HOAX bin.....
Many threads that end up being found to be Hoaxes end up with huge amounts of stars and flags...this is because people think its legit and feel that
the person who posted the material had done a good job in discovering something new and exciting.
For the most part (and in this thread) the people writing the thread are just going on second hand information and dont post knowing its a Hoax. I
suppose the argument to that is that you should always do a lot of research if you have your doubts, or the story sounds too good to be true.
Wouldnt it be fairer if the stars and flags were removed from these??
I went to the Top Topics section and just saw a thread just like this. Its at the top of the boards, yet its a Hoax.
Why are people encouraged to continue to debate on something that is a Hoax?
Isnt it the starring and flagging of posts that put them in the top topics section?
