Because of the amount of people we've been seeing coming through .NET lately claiming in some fashion to have "insider info" on various subjects, I felt it was necessary to create a new policy which defines when and how these types of claims will be allowed.
Regardless of where our community comes down on this topic, the fact is that we are viewed as a one-stop shop for seeing what's happening with our team, and we've seen too many times where random people claim to know something or someone and it helps to spread false information. We want to keep our main forum a place for legitimate Seahawks news and talk, not for rumor-mongering from anyone claiming to be in the know.
As always, if a rumor is reported by a legitimate media source, please feel free to create a topic and discuss away. This policy is only to discourage .NET users claiming they know something without any accountability to the validity. We hope to at least provide substance to these claims with this policy.
As such, the following has been added to the official FAQ/Rules section. Please let me know via PM if you have any questions or concerns about this. Thanks.
**Posting information from inside sources**
If you claim a confidential source, prior to posting you must contact Seahawks.NET owner RockHawk and have your source verified. Verification is quick and completely confidential and will not put your source at risk.
If your source checks out .net will allow postings citing a confidential source with our support.
All other posts citing inside sources will be deleted without explanation.
