Yesterday, as a joke and a social experiment I posted a link to a fake news website that claimed Hitler was a woman after DNA testing was performed on his skull fragments.Obviously the story is not real.But at the end of the article in the comments section,it was astounding how many individuals from around the globe thought it was real.Anyone can post/blog create any website and people will believe it is real.The questions I wanted to ask before the thread was deleted are these.Do you think the ability to post information worldwide,true information or false is dangerous?Should it be considered "freedom of the press",whether the information is real or not?Should the many fake news websites be allowed to exist?

The thing is: Everything you see here is real, but we are living in a fake world...

It's just like everything else people believe everything they read in "history books".

I thought you would go on a vacation after I saw that post. I am glad that you didn't.

What about a book on how to construct proper sentences?
