Cryptomundo and Moneymaker sued for defamation (Removed)


Why was this post removed?

We at Doubtful News have decided that Bigfoot news is currently too absurd to warrant discussion on our site. There is no solid evidence that Bigfoot exists. Yet, TV shows and cryptozoology personalities have assumed the reality of the creature instead of considering all reasonable options to explain eyewitness reports. That’s not science. It’s pure speculation.

Therefore, we have decided from this point to limit our coverage of Bigfoot to any ACTUAL quality news stories that arise that have some value, not rumors or disputes between personalities or humorous mention of Bigfoot in the media. Because of the tendency of too many in the pro-Bigfoot camp to attack critics (often personally) who question the evidence, and to hype speculation for web hits and ad revenue instead of providing well-thought out arguments, we have removed this post.

This site is designed to be a place for rational exchange. The lessons we have learned from posting Bigfoot stories is that rational exchange doesn’t happen.

    Honesty and common courtesy.

    Yea, I know it’s not always that simple. There are times when honesty is obligated to stomp on common courtesy.

    It’s a shame we can’t all just get along.

    It can be hard. But walking away from such sniping will be better off in the long run.

    There are SO SO SO many improvements that can be made to CM to make it a better place. But they don’t solicit advice.

    Not enough information. Completely confusing to someone who knows none of the backstory.

    You’re right. I added an intro paragraph. Hope that helps.

    It was a bit of a complicated story. Took me a while to figure it out. Many of our readers DO know some backstory of the people involved so I did take shortcuts. That may happen with some stories because the site is not geared to be like a newspaper or magazine. I have to cut to the point and get it out there to be picked up by search engines and for people to build upon.

    Also, every once in a while, I have to remind readers that we do this web site in our spare time, the best we can with what little resources we have. We will mess up a lot. I try to fix things like this when they are noticed.
