Quote from ktkenshinx »So tired of those posts getting made to Reddit and/or shared on social media. I disproved the last one about Ensnaring Bridge and it looks like this one is just as fraudulent. Posts like that just increase ban mania, uncertainty during an already uncertain period, distrust, and misinformation. They are terrible for the community and I wish Reddit was more responsible in shutting down or editing such information once it has clearly been proven false.
I'll also add that information consumers have a responsibility to be more discriminating. It takes about 15 seconds of running this through any free photo forensic software to identify glaring signs of a faked screenshot. It literally says it's a photoshopped image in the metadata. I don't know about you, but I don't run my screenshots through photoshop before posting them.
The post has since been taken down, but I saw while it was live that a mod stickied their comment to the top with their rationale to keeping it live; basically if they took it down there would be reposts and people accusing the mods of being "shills" so they kept it up with the caveat that it was "probably fake". Looks like they removed it after the photoshop analysis or whatever was posted.
