Re: 6 Americans, 1 Brit vanish at sea

The dangerous part of speculating on internet forums is that the speculation gets repeated enough that people start to treat is as fact. I've seen numerous cases of that very thing happening here. I'm not suggesting that it should be suppressed, but it should also be treated with an appropriate grain of salt.

All information is potentially useful, but inaccurate information treated as fact is potentially dangerous. Fortunately, professional investigators are well trained to sort out the two. Amateur wannable investigators, not so much.
