I feel that a large number of good threads and posts are getting buried under an avalanche of FUD. I was thinking it would be nice to have a FUD section for any unsubstantiated posts that are potentially created for the purposes of manipulation the market.

But what does everyone else think?

Creating a Bitcoin client that fully implements the network protocol is extremely difficult. Bitcoin Core and some of its derivatives are the only known safe implementations of full nodes. Some other projects attempt to compete, but it is not recommended to use such software for anything serious. (Lightweight clients like Electrum and Bither are OK.)

I would have no problem with labelling shitcoin promotions as FUD.

Only the main forum or the alt section as well?

I don't think anyone's gonna bother, regardless the outcome.

edit: if they want to manipulate, they're just gonna sugar coat it.

"Speculation" has become a joke.

Every other post is a retarded "$3 BY END OF WEEK, TRUST ME I KNOW!" or "OBAMA JOINS BITCOIN FOUNDATION, 2 DA MOON!" (followed by - "Wouldn't that be nice hay guyzz amirite?!!!" in the post body)

Can you just make a dedicated FUD (and err.. anti-FUD) forum and permanently move all these crap threads to die there. People will get the picture soon enough?

Isn't the Speculation forum the FUD forum?  Cheesy I think some place to put obvious troll posts or FUD could be a good idea though. However, half of the time you can't tell between a genuine moronic newb question and someone trolling.

Speculation is hardly a science or an art form. Most speculation threads are exactly that; speculation.

Yeah but so many of them are just sensationalist post titles and troll content or terrible manipulation rally attempts. Admittedly Speculation has had it's fair share of stupidity, but I feel the honest / dishonest thread ratio is getting worse of late.

Anyway, modding is probably never a walk in the park to get the balance right, just weighing in my 2c.
