View Diary: Don't call me a "concern troll" for asking you to provide source material (100 comments)

    It's easy to say in hindsight that I wouldn't have HRd the diarist...but an unsourced post, showing Romney doing something unbelievably stupid, with no engagement from the diarist and without being backed up?

    It's not unreasonable to wonder about conspiracy theories.

    Now, a reasonable person can respond that a whistleblower fearing retaliation may not be willing or able to publicly back up something like this. To be honest, I concede the point. We need to be able to verify without putting someone at risk, and off the top of my head I don't know how to do that. Particularly late nights or weekends when a community verification person may be unavailable.

    So at this point our choice is to accept CT seeming theories so that the  occasional true one survives, or banhammer all diaries that appear to be CTs and apologize for the occasional true one that gets stomped.

    Unless there's another solution.
