And as for the comments about BIN being banned, it's not banned, it's being put in the HOAX bin. You can still use it as a source, just expect to see it in the HOAX forum, unless you have more than BIN as a source. It's not banning it as a source.

We've come to realization that "Before It's News" has pushed more hoaxes than "Sorcha Faal" ever did, therefor ALL threads started with BIN as the only source will go immediately into the HOAX Bin. For now we won't hold it against the member, but, after a month or so of this policy being in effect repeat offenders will be up for an account review. We've been told there are some "interested parties" (read as people who may be getting a slice of BIN's ad money) who have ATS accounts, that won't fly here.
We don't want to support an operation that continues to push ridiculous hoaxes, just to garner page views with traffic from ATS.
But of chouarse, the double standards are glaringly obvious as ATS once more tries to ban the internet.

Looks like you'll may trusts nothing but Mainstream news sources as the source due to terrible perception of "Mainstream News are the only reliable sources". Before It's News have some of it's news gone, Natural News is OK but sometimes bit too hippie, and so on
