Lots of posts were on Google about beta 7. I guess I got over excited!
Herein lies the problem. How many sites link to a story? Multiply that by the number of other stories which may or may not be true? That's a lot of links to a site. Guess what that does for ranking of that site in Google?

Do sources sometimes provide incorrect information? Maybe, but there's a benefit regardless of being wrong or right.

The catch is never believe so quickly. Remember "all that glitters is not gold" is very much true on net.
