I was simply trying to speak about people fabricating things that others are saying. They do so to paint that person in a negative light. Others read it and assume that the other poster actually said that.
I've seen a few guys do it in the football forums, but that isn't a big deal because in the grand scheme of things, it's not important who likes or dislikes Baker, Hue, Sashi, etc.
However, when you start lying what others are saying in regards to things like abortion, race relations, gender, etc........you are slandering their character.
We can all disagree on interpretations of the things you mentioned or out opinions, but making up outright lies to slander others is something that I think is completely out-of-bounds. For example, I might get ticked if you call me a bigot, but that is just your interpretation of me. However, attributing comments that I have never said, or even thought, is going too far.
You can at least agree w/that, right?
