You mean Reuters? The corporate reposts guideline doesn't
say that articles cannot make reference to the mainstream
media, it fact it says: "by all means link to articles
elsewhere and quote from them but don't just copy them" --
so what is the problem with mentioning Reuters and how is
this discriminatory? Or do I totally misunderstand what
you mean by "the R word"?

It is related "to a recent event"...

Can you be a bit more concrete and perhaps say in what way
you think it is "inaccurate or misleading"?

There has been lots of debate on this list about Kurt
Nimmo, I think we really need to distill it onto a wiki
page, but there is not consensus that all his posts should
be hidden though some wanted this... so I don't see how
it's "Disruptive".
