    I am thinking about adding a forum where we can post all the rumours and misinformation that is published in the media. Any rumours you come up with yourselves DO NOT MENTION NAMES.

    The idea will be more or less to post the threads like Stewart wanting 2.4m and then at the end of the year we can make a call as to whether it was BS or not.

    Just toying with the idea and would value your thoughts

    RE: Your thoughs on a misinformation and rumour forum

    Daniel...What are you doing?
    This forum will therefore be filled with BS definitely well above the state BS average...

    I like it, to be fair though we should give credit where its due. when a good accurate article is printed as well. Then we can statisticly rate each journo. Most would be like footy managers. MR 6.5 %.

    I'd like it if each rumour had a link to the article, no threads without any back up.

    I follow. I think it's a great idea. Nothing is ever true in the media until after it's already happened.

    Agree with this. Otherwise there will be BS flying all over the place and it will be October all over again and I dont think my heart, wife and family could handle October all over again.

    I really like this idea. Each article could be classified as TRUE, FALSE or UNKNOWN and stats complied on each journo and media source.

      Might be nice to keep a running sheet of Journo bull**** and weigh it up at the end of the year.

      That is more or less the idea.

      We can rate them all and then apply that rating whenever they have a new article.

      You'd have to have ratings in the negative for Weidler articles.

      I wonder how I can implement this. It does cross over with a site I am working on at the moment though

      What happens if its a rumour you've heard?

      I know people don't like the mate of a mate stories, but sometimes they do come true!
