15) Outlandish claims of inside information: This is subjective and will be at the discretion of the moderator after consulting with other posters and other administrators. Deference will be given to veteran members who have established credibility. If you're an insider, contact us with proof BEFORE you post.

There's a difference between an idiot and a kid with twitter who sits in his basement. Full disclosure, I've consulted multiple times with other moderators and administrators as to what this means, and in the past have tried to allow their 'rumors' to go on as simple speculation just as anyone else here would speculate. No other forum allows these kids' 'rumors' to infiltrate their forums as real news, so we're not either. All they have to do is prove that they actually do have sources, and the website will green light it. So far, none of these guys have, despite how much they cry and call other people names (which is both not professional, childish, and further proves they're just liars).

Timmy is an accredited media member, who works for a credible media outlet. Whether or not his intelligence rivals that of a doorknob is irrelevant, the point is he is associated with a media outlet. Timmy works for the same entity that owns the Flyers, so there's nothing to dispute there.

The other guy (who is now being disputed by another kid tweeting from his basement in the complete opposite direction) is not. He is random person on the internet who wants to be the next Eklund. And most people here would say one Eklund is one too many, so we're not having it here.
