It is seemingly far worse as time goes on. I am constantly seeing wild stuff with a link to what "looks" to be some kind of legit news source. No more just some blog. When I see one that sounds "off" and start searching the norm seems to be it can not be found anywhere else. First red flag that its just something made upYuppers!
Now, I've made some doozy errors posting up stuff which I had "thought" were correct. Folks pointed out such as errors, most not as politely as I did in this fellows case above.
I learned, thanked whomever (or the group if so). Apologized for posting said erroneous info, and went on with my day.
If it was technical info that was erroneous, I locked it down. So that others would not make an agregious error due to my poor thought process in posting such.
