Soon every article will have the disclaimer of "take it with a grain of salt." Which is a dead end
It's going to blur the lines of "good" info versus bad. The credible sources are being marginalized and they are disappearing. And rightfully so I may add.
In the long run we will suffer the consequences.
This is a good point.

So are we thinking that Mannequins is a Verizon or Samsung rumor-inserter? It's possible. But seriously guys, I really did call the number before it was blacked out, and it is an official Verizon phone number, and the person's name on the voice mail is the same as what was on the document.
It's possible, but I don't think probable.
