*HOAX* Giant Squid washes out in CA - Fukushima to blame

I know that you people here discount all these reports, but there are too many to just be coincidence. Take a look here. Who knows what's next :-(

Howard, at the risk of violating rules here, I have to say that you are a fool. There is no other logical explanation. Please, before you post your drivel, spend a few minutes and verify the information. Just because someone posts something on the web, it doesn't mean it is so!

Here, read these and see what I mean. You propagated another urban myth, A HOAX! Unfortunately, this is not the first time you did that. I am not sure of you do it purposely, because of your blind anti-nuclear position, or if you are trully fooled each time. In either case, you are not helping your credibility any!

This has become a social board where Howard posts his hoaxes and then other users spend dozens of messages dispelling them and trying to set the record straight. I used to visit very often because for me it was one of the few boards where we could discuss and exchange information about mostly technical issues. That is no more and I am disappointed. I will PM the admin to see if there is anything that can be done about taking control of the board, again. I suggest anyone that feels the same way sends a PM, also. Let Howard find a different venue for his rants.

OscarG, why would you be violating any rules? Do you think you'd get in trouble if you called a tall person "tall"? It's not a demeaning swear, it's an attribute, just like "fool" is for Howard.

Hope this board gets back on track!
