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

Others replied
quote:
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
quote:
is it possible that the wafa story was a lie?

and one response was
quote:
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.
