I think it's safe to say that what happened yesterday at the U.S. capital was bizarre and quite frankly scary. It is an incident that will most definitely go down in history. But, one effect it has caused is the spread of disingenuous and fake news that comes with zero proof backing its statements. Some of it is harmful and hateful, it encourages violence, and again, could leave some with a false conclusion on the situation that occurred. That's why, I propose a suggestion that outright prohibits users from posting conspiracy theories like these. I'm not a mod or anything so if it's considered I don't know what kind of punishment specifics a rule like that would have, but if a user knows that what they are posting is potentially wrong and dangerous, I believe personally, it would be best to take some sort of action on them. There are plenty of social media and chatting websites that have policies like this place, and with the forum pretty much being a platform like those, it should have those policies as well.

I would like to hear other peoples and mods thoughts on this, as I find this to be needed at this point.

I agree. Discussing political beliefs is fine, but not when it comes to posting information that is misleading and factually incorrect.

I can't help but feel like this is targeting a certain account (rightfully), but yes I agree.

I tried to make this as unbiased as I could, but you are correct that theories that have been posted on the forum mostly influenced my decision to post this since it's an ongoing problem.

I support this. Just like with the COVID-19 topic, it's just as harmful to post these kind of comments on the forum without any evidence to back them up.

Support, Matt should add this to the guidelines

If you are seeing this, please put your pronouns somewhere in your profile! It normalizes displaying pronouns so that people who are uncomfortable with their pronouns see it's ok to display them, and so people who are transgender and display their pronouns don't stick out.

The forum wouldn’t be like this if they had just stanned Loona :pensive:

I support this. I was in school during the middle of it so I didn't get to see what was going down but reading the articles and hearing what happened on TV... dang, that hits hard. It honestly makes me very upset.

Adding this here since it is sorta an update

Matt [Jan 13 11:57 AM]:   @Katakuri yeah I've seen it, I do agree that we shouldn't allow harmful conspiracy theories on the forum, though haven't figured out a good way to word a rule for it
Matt [Jan 13 11:58 AM]:   In the meantime, in general mods can use their own discretion with things not formally written in the guidelines though

I disagree, people should be able to voice their thoughts, and even if they’re obviously false, it doesn’t hurt anybody
