I am often on the lookout for domain industry news or news that will impact my business and the business of other domain investors. I am also sent quite a bit of news and/or stories that may be of interest to readers once I disseminate it.
Sometimes when I learn about something that may be newsworthy (a domain name sale, company or service launch, domain investor or company doing something noteworthy…etc), I have concerns about the veracity of the news or have concerns about the person or company. Oftentimes, it would either not be possible to have these concerns alleviated or would take more time than I have to give to have my concerns allayed.
With that being said, I am curious what readers think about these types of situations. Should I report the news as I have read it and leave it up to readers to determine whether they believe the news or not? Should I write about the news and mention my concerns about the veracity of the story or mention that I can not say for certain if the story is legit or authentic? Should I simply avoid writing about topics I can not prove or have doubts about?
I think this is an important topic, so please vote and consider sharing your thoughts in the comment section:
