Also, note that I am not preaching for one more than the other. I'm saying that it should be all or none at all. The percentage of people taking Eklund's rumours here are few and far between anyway.
It is true that at deadline, it was nice to see that rule laxed a bit. Is this still in effect or was it a deadline thing?
Well for one, credible news sources have backed up Eklund on occasion. Bob McKenzie being one of them. While to my knowledge, your dog's cat hasn't received the same backing.
I know what you're saying, but you don't see things from the same side of the fence that we (the mods) do. If we allowed ALL rumours, regardless of their sources, the Habs board would be a mess. As no one would be held accountable for the rumours they posted. So they would post whatever they felt like, without worry.
On the other hand, if we removed ALL rumours. As I pointed out earlier, the mods would be spending a great deal of time locking, deleting or moving threads off of the Habs board. Which is tedious work and can be time consuming.
I agree, which is why it was decided that one thread be dedicated for all of Eklund's rumours. This allows those posters who are interested in discussing them to do so. While allowing posters who aren't to simply ignore the thread, erasing it entirely from their view.
I'd like to point out that, this wasn't a decision that me or the other Habs mods decided on. The decision was made by you (the Habs posters). A vote was held and the majority of you felt that keeping all Eklund rumours contained to one thread, was the best route to take.
How's that for allowing our posters to have a say in how things are run here. Sorry, that's just a shot at some posters here who think I ran this place like Napoleon.
Since I'll be stepping down sometime today, it's probably unfair for me to comment. This is something that the current (Habs mods) will have to discuss as a group and decide on.
