What's worse, is people rush to be the first, and do not always have accurate news. This is the twitterization of our society and it's dangerous...
I know people do not have bad intent, but look at how many times the richter scale number has changed since the original reports and i sense somewhat, some people actually like this stuff but preface, or end their posts with hoping everyone is ok I feel like if theres not mass loss of life and damage, people blow these things offedit on 11-4-2012 by CoolStoryMan because: (no reason given)

True, people are rushing, to bring the kind of news we will get in the MSM anyway very shortly afterward. I like ATS for being the first source of important news usually, but 3 hours after a 8.9 EQ, most people with a little to some curiosity to the world stage have probably heard about it.
