@Gorath: In the stock business, that is called "insider knowledge".

To defend Ragon, I think he's still right insofar that there was no real source one could nail down - and as long as there isn't I at least consider everything a "rumor", no matter how hard you try to fight this word.

You just can't say "I know it's true and I'm right", because every liar would be able to tell the same.
Not to mention those who just place a "rumor" into the public to gain attention (in the sense of an "attention whore") - a "rumor" which is fake and just made up in order to gain attention to the one who posted it in the first place.

WE ar the original readers, we simply aren't able to distinguish between rumor and truth - what is false and what is right.

The way you put it, Gorath, makes it sound rather self-righteous, because you do as if we were only blind worms who do not know the Divine Truth.

Simply because we know fewer things than you do - which puts you into a position of "information power" or "information might".
Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
