When I launched Thousandlashes.ca, one of my core principles was that a worthwhile discussion must be based on an agreed-on set of facts. The Brexit debate and Trump’s election have shown us what can happen when people are allowed to post false or misleading news.
As this site’s moderator, I will continue to delay posting anything I feel contains false or misleading facts until I have had the opportunity to verify them. Only then will I approve the post along with a moderator’s note relating to the questionable information.
Opinion will always be welcome.
It has been suggested that anyone posting on this site should use his or her own name. I’m open to both points of view.– Jim Duff
