What is with the new fact checking people's comments and then getti g a warning?

If that's for every one then this whole place would have a warning for misleading information, or is it for just talking about s w only?

Does any one know?

I thought that was interesting. Admin will allow people to post outright lies and propogate misinformation on any topic but don't you DARE say anything about admin.

@Lilnonames Someone felt threatened. Once upon a time there was a place called "yahoo chat" but it was being overran by trolls and bots so yahoo "fixed it" by requiring you to log in again every time you went from one room to the next. Soon there was no one in the room but trolls and bots and it was no longer worth the effort to log in. I guess they got to keep everyone safe from misinformation......

I had one on my notifications and essentially it was another user being called out and sanctioned for saying he was told something by the admins. It appears this was "fact checked" and found to be wrong.

The user was then given the Yellow Badge O' Shame on their profile.

So it looks like they are "fact checking" things said by the admins. Liars are being punished.

there's probably been a huge uptick in troll infestations.

if people don't want to be treated like a state sponsored troll, they should stop posting like one, I guess.

@SusanInFlorida the people being fact checked are not trolls
