  1. One major problem is knowing who the OP on any information was and whether they were paid or had another reason to tell – or not tell – the truth as they knew it (and whether what they knew/were told wasn’t already misinformation.)

    Really good misinformation passes the ‘sounds right’ test to the one hearing it, which makes the truth all that much harder for them to believe.
