An unfounded rumor about Carl Jung is now on the front page of Google, thanks to Ask Metafilter. [more inside]

Can we hold you to that?

Seriously, if this doesn't come out everywhere on Monday morning and this turns out to be a stupid rumor, truthout and rawstory links are going to be banned from mefi.

Unconfirmed rumors not yet best of web

I ... agree with dios. This is a terrible post.

Rumors and speculation as fpp

Rumors and speculation. The National Enquirer quotes anonymous sources saying that Bush is drinking again. Is this credible enough to be posted to MetaFilter? (That's a real question, not a rhetorical one.)

MEFI stands for Democratic Underground

Can someone explain to me why this is on the front page? nlindstrom links to this as his source, who in turn links to this guy as their source. And Mr. Madsen? He doesn't list a source. Has this place become a Democratic Underground clone when I wasn't looking?

Can we not post rumors?

Are there guidelines about posting (or preferably not posting) threads that present as truth that which, if investigated, turns out to be mere conjecture?
