    So long as it's clearly labelled as such.

    Facts are boring things.

      ..speculating that something was an act of terror perpetrated by the "other side," isn't so helpful.

      The theory might end up being true; but assuming (and, in some cases above, guaranteeing) it to be true mere minutes after it happened is symptomatic of derangement -- and actually writing out the theory with the guarantee -- hints that someone is totally unashamed about being deranged, or thinks the community doesn't care about said derangement. Not a good sign.

      •  Oh come on, this is harmless. (0+ / 0-)

        No one is making claims that are untrue and passing them off as fact.  People are just speculating.  There's nothing wrong with that.

            Then the whole planet is deranged.  Please.  This is just what pigeons do when things like this happen.  They gossip.  As long as no one is bearing false witness, I can't really see the harm in it.
