Apologies!
It takes an awesome, huge, big, humble and magnanimous, great man to admit when he is wrong.

I was wrong.

I pinned what I felt might turn out to be a breaking story about an organization we talk about all the time at GLP.

An AC posted that the Zeitgeist people were being raided by the FEDS. This was given to AC by someone near the Venus Project in Florida.

Well, evidently someone was having AC on and no such raid is occuring. It was BS.

I apoligize to you all for calling attention to a fake story. I felt we might have a scoop on our hands.

The additonal fact that Zeitgeist is annoying to me, personally, had no weight in my decision...if you don't believe me, try posting an anti-Zeitgeist thread and see if I pin it.

It was all about potentially breaking news.

I will not do that again unless it's already been verified.

Yours truly,
Greg_B.

Re: Apologies!
what's wrong with pinning something, until it's proven otherwise? I didn't have a problem with it.

I tend to agree, NIP, but there were not less than a few who cried Shennannigans.

Well, I'm not really, but I do want the word to get out that it was BS...only fair. Also, I think humility and apologies can go a long way towards credibility. It hurts me more to be dismissive and arrogant about my mistakes, know what I mean?

I was sort of channeling Adam Carolla on that one. He jokingly sets up his apologies with the faux self-aggrandizement that only a fun-loving blowhard like myself can enjoy.
