Since when do we lock threads for being based on "complete conjecture"?
There have been all kinds of threads begun on rumor and innuendo which were never locked, based on nothing more that a Drudge Report. Remember "Kerry had an affair"?
Moreover, it's not like this is just out of nowhere, the guy has a history, there has been a lot of speculation, there are the facial abrasions, odd lapses, extended disappearances. etc. Drudge hasn't picked it up but the National Inquirer has, which is at least as good a source.
Anywho, for my part, I thought providing some background on the disease would help put the discussion in context.
Decision of the mod is final, sure, I get that, I just think it wasn't such a good call.
