hi Nowelle! thanks for the suggestion. :)

blind items are a pretty touchy topic. i know may mga blind item "news" na nakakalusot, because we try to split everything shared by our members. the most we have been doing is tag the topic/thread as a blind item, if it really didn't mention names.

it could be harmful if people will abuse it and just post blind items for the sake of stirring things up. :)

it could be useful if we could contain all the blind items in just one thread and not create confusion for others. :)

the staff will discuss this further and we'll weigh the pros and cons of having a blind item thread. we'll keep you posted! :T thanks again for your suggestion!

hi all, :)

the request was brought to the attention of the staff, and we've discussed the PROs and CONs we've come up with.

the decision for now is not to have a blind item thread, as it might easily be a breeding ground for negativity and intrigue. this is more of a preventative measure. while we trust the members that they will practice good judgment in what to believe and what not to believe, not everyone who visits the site have the same online maturity and ethics. and if words are said and people are hurt, nothing good comes out of "assumed news".

if the need arises in the future to have a thread of that nature, we will revisit the decision and deliberate anew.

thank you all, for your understanding and cooperation. :)
