    I think the mods have decided to just shut down anything coming from 4chan or reddit.

    Because 4chan nor reddit are respectable sources. Remember when teacher would say "Don't use wikipedia as a source". Yeah, that's what mods say about 4chan and reddit here.

    Except that some media sources are having fun with the content coming from these sites. What harm does it cause? It's better than discussing the color of Leah's light saber

    Yeah I think it's ridiculous to not allow a thread for discussion of these reports. There was clearly a demand to talk about them. If people are enjoying doing so then why not?

    I love these forums but sometimes they're over regulated.

    Yeah, my traffic to this site would definitely be more frequent if they would lighten up.

    Completely agree. Instead just rename the thread to like "Some cool opinions from 4chan" instead of branding them as insider rumors. Fixes everything.

    It's not like any of us are being stopped from discussing the 4chan rumors. We just have to discuss the specific parts of the rumors in the threads they pertain to.

    However, I'd be fine with what happens either way.

    Yeah but a thread where these spoilers are all neatly summarised for members would be good.

    Maybe they could create a Random Rumor thread, where totally random internet people could get their soapbox. Not sure if it would work out (it could get really toxic), but it would be a way to avoid a "Spoiler Man" thread, and a "Spoiler Man's last stand' thread, and a "Spoiler Bro" thread.

    What's funny is that a while back they shut down the MSW "Jedi Hunters" thread when Eric Geller "debunked" it. Then Eric backtracked. :)

    Agreed, if this is supposed to be the section of the forum for spolier discussion, I would think a thread or two dedicated to these rumors would be warranted, especially given that the rumors are now being covered by mainstream outlets.. At the end of the day it is up to each fan to filter what they think is legitimate or not, and the fact of the matter is people are still talking about the reddit and 4chan rumors, they've just moved the discussion to other threads.

    Yeah, originally Eric said that absolutely nothing in Jason's post was true. By the end, the only part left from the "debunking" was that the characters aren't called "Jedi Hunters" in-universe, which was never in dispute in the first place.
