Any plans to do something about all the misinformation being spread on this site?
I'm referring to all the conspiracy theories, posts calling the coronavirus a "hoax", etc.

That shite should be a bannable offense in a time like this. If even 1 person is influenced by these morons, it could result in loss of life. That is not an exaggeration.

How are we supposed to determine what is and isn’t miss-information?

Do you have examples?

You have one message that's being endorsed by every major health organization, every government official in the world, and the entire medical community

And then you have an opposing message that's being pushed by a bunch of 60 year old rednecks with no higher education.

Which one do you think is misinformation?

Yes, go check out the poli board

So you want every thread on the PT board deleted and the posters banned?

Interesting idea.

This is unrelated to the current covid19 ordeal, but have you considered opening a TD Cemetery?

I know it sounds morbid and maybe even comical at first, but it’s not really either. So many people post here that surely some die and we never even know. A cemetery forum might allow us to keep track of posters who die. Each can have a virtual gravestone (thread), where posters can post and pay their respects.

As the readership of TD ages, I hope Chicken will seriously consider it.

Not every thread or every poster. Just the ones peddling conspiracy theories and false information. Really not that hard. I would start with that psychotic "Q" thread

Do you have proof of their age and education? If not, wouldn't this be considered spreading misinformation?

Fred -- THANK YOU

and thanks to Chicken and everyone at TD.com

something is true of everyone right now, we are all facing a situation that is new and that we could have never imagined

the fact that THIS website allows for the free exchange of ideas is amazing

most of the "misinformation" that is being criticized (by OP and others) is the opinions of real people on this website

this thread -- LINK /

which references this website -- LINK /

is the only thing, other than press conferences and announcements from the White House, stickied (I.E. endorsed) by TD.com on the political board

the fact that good folks here allow for people to express themselves and exchange ideas is a big part of what makes this site work

You mean the message opposing the opinions of a bunch of basement dwelling, man bun wearing 16 year old poofs in the OT?

It is absolutely horrific, Grim. There are people on the Political Board who are actually refusing to worship the Lord High Master Obama or his apostles Nancy and Chuck.

I have even seen them question the mental cognizance of noted scholar, Joe Biden.

One of them had the nerve to say Bernie Sanders should put his hands in his own pockets.

Unless they rein in the Political Board. It will get out of hand. Next thing you know they will be questioning the intelligence of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

I have heard that some of the posters on the Poli Board fly American flags and said mean things about Colin Kaepernick.

How about you just not visit the Q thread and you won’t have to worry about it

You’re asking the impossible. People love to come here, complaining about the content of threads as victims when they could’ve simply ignored the thread.

It seems to be bothering you for some reason....

Your concern for your fellow man is admirable...

So why let those so-called uneducated rednecks.....(Which is a stereotype) and an opinion of yours. Why let it mess up your bright pathetic day?

Do something valuable with your time. Read a book, plant a flower or maybe worry about yourself and your own views.

Maybe question yourself about why you are so worried about what others do and their views. ask yourself why do i feel the need to be that person, who wants to stop others from their own opinions and views. Because i think you are a sad,a miserable person who wants to have company in the place your are in life.

stay strong..... peaches...
