On having a "Hoax" button to balance out the Stars and Flags......
Why did "Star Wars" pop into my head?
It is a interesting idea, but I could see it being abused too (as with the stars and flags also).
I don't think there's any system that would work perfectly, but it would be interesting to see how it would go if nothing else.
I do know that if something like that were implimented, that people need to be educated between the differences of a "Hoax" and a "Mistake", IE: A
person posting a video, picture that's been faked or photoshoped, or providing false information would be a hoax, where as someone posting a video,
pic, etc, honestly thinking it was something, only to be debunked, isn't a hoax, but simply a mistake or misunderstanding.
