In a closed thread, Macabee asked, about a Palestine News Agency (WAFA) report:
Has this been verified by any other objective media?

Others replied
It is absolutely astounding that the one of the first comments made here immediatly attacks the source as not credible.

Is a question an attack? Did he say the Palestine News Agency was not objective?
He then asked
is it possible that the wafa story was a lie?

and one response was
it's not right to dismiss a report because it's from an Arab source.

I would like to be assured I can ask questions without being told they are accusations or dismissive.
