I must say, I get a little irked when I read a post that is an obvious hoax, or bs thread and people will still give the troll/poster the benefit of the doubt. That risk of putting a hoax at the same level as a thread of substance worries me. But that begs the question, who really can determine the difference. No one... Even when PROVEN to be a hoax, there will still be a free thinker coming to defend it. Crazy world we live in huh

Why in the world would you single out a thread BY NAME and go on about it being obvious hogwash? Shouldn't this thread be in the rant section?
What really irks me about some of the people on this site is their imagined superiority, as if only THEY can determine was is truth and what is not. If a thread is a hoax or a troll thread, let each member determine its worth on their own, we don't need a couple of self-righteous blowhards deciding it for us. If you think it is hogwash, why don't you lay out your reasons why, instead of going on the attack and making fun?
I know quite a few on here have no life and need to put others down in order to get a laugh and feel important, but to me, it is the thing I find quite insufferable about this site. If you don't agree with something, feel free to say so, but why be an a-hole about it? I don't need you to tell me what to think or what to believe.
Denying ignorance is one thing, but denying posters their dignity because you have a burr up your butt is something else entirely.
