Discussion in 'Star Trek: Picard' started by The Old Mixer, Feb 5, 2017.
Dumbcock sez what?
I am very tempted to whoosh this away to that thread but it IS Picard specific and not just Future of Trek..........I'll let @The Old Mixer make the call.......just wish folks would not even post from We Got This Covered
I think what people are trying to say is, when the site you linked to posts something, it's not a rumor. They made it up. They're literally known for it.
I actually considered merging this into our YouTube content thread, as it's basically the same sort of thing...except that the source isn't a YouTube video. It should stay in this forum, though.
You really love putting things into that Youtube thread, it's like the "not important stuff" thread.
Could we do with an "Upcoming Trek Rumours That Are Utter Bollicks" thread ?
Rumor: a currently circulating story or report of uncertain or doubtful truth.
It is a story of uncertain or doubtful truth, is it not? So I think it is fair to call it a rumor.
I would just not help it circulate. They make money for every click. Don’t spread obviously fake news. But that’s just me.
There was no reason at all to bring this up for discussion. WeGotThisCovered is a clickbait site that seems to routinely just make shit up to drive traffic to their worthless website - which you helped them do by creating an entire topic to draw attention to a link to their stupid story.
To be fair, I started the "Brent Spiner to appear on Picard?" thread based on a WGTC article, and that one turned out to be true.
Is it possible to just outright ban or block any links to We Got This Covered on the forum? None of their "reporting" adds anything of value to any discussions outside of the anti-CBSAA Trek crowd.
Or at the very least move it to the unreliable sources thread... But I'd prefer not to give them any clicks.
If Stewart wasn't happy with the script, they would have changed it.
I see you guys got this covered.
I agree that we shouldn't give them clicks, which is easy as the OP gave us the gist of the article. On the other hand, we don't really have anything else to talk about where Picard is concerned.
I'd consider changing the name of the YouTube thread to something more general to cover clickbait sites.
Just bullshit YouTube videos.
It's like the "bullshit YouTube videos" thread.
Like in Alien 3..
This is Rumor Control:
Just make a thread or entire forum folder marked "Rumor Control" and dump any thread that starts with a link to a known purveyor of Bantha poodo
I would be happy with a tag that read "Rumors", just like we have tags that read "News" and "Spoilers".
Does the the guy posting this topic have a stake or interest in the website that is posting this garbage? 4chan has no legitimacy, it's a site full of incels who purposefully hate everything new and popular. It is full of people who post all kinds of bullshit leaks because they like the attention they get. I can go on there right now and post about how Patrick Stewart is being contractually forced to appear in the show and actually hates the show and I'd get hundreds of posts of people believing it.
I'd like to see a venn diagram between people who believe YouTube incel types like Doomcock, MidnightsEdge and Nerdrotic, 5G conspiracies and thinking corona virus is fake.
Just look at his channel, it is entirely click bait, hate filled videos designed to tell a certain group (males in their 20s and 30s) what they want to hear.
