Lloyd,
I know you spend a lot of time gathering these news bites from around the internet, which is possibly a great service to us all... but why do you suppose so much of it is going un-bitten? I occasionally tried to bite a few over the months you have been posting, but can I give you a few friendly suggestions:
1. A lot of this stuff is truly poor writing by non-science journalists. Several of the articles I've taken a gander at give no substantive evidence for their claims, and are just speculating on some second- or third-hand headline.
2. Most of these articles do not give source references, which means that any one wanting to comment on them must do a deep search themselves to find out WHO, WHAT, WHY, and "What did the primary researchers actually find, observe or measure?"
3. Avoid editorializing the headlines by inserting your own catastrophic philosophic disclaimers. Particularly avoid the use of dogmatic wording that flatly discounts a claim without giving an evidenciary basis. These are dishonest and unscientific practices worse than the writing of an article to spectacularize a claim without providing necessary background information, the practice of most of the article authors you reference.
4. Finally word: This is really a huge list of disinformation, making it nigh unto impossible for us readers to sort through the sheer volume of it all... I'm wondering if there is a better way to channel this "service"?
Truth extends beyond the border of self-limiting science. Free discourse among opposing viewpoints draws the open-minded away from the darkness of inevitable bias and nearer to the light of universal reality.

Gordon, there's nothing dishonest about the comments I add to some of the article titles. And the titles aren't supposed to be scientific. They're supposed to be interesting and explanatory. I post the titles so readers can get an idea of what scientific findings are being made or talked about. Often the titles are too vague, so I add info so readers know what it's really about. I usually don't read the articles myself, unless they're especially interesting, or just to see better what it's about. I add the links so readers can decide if they want to check out the story more.

I cull the article titles from Graham Hancock's site and Phys.org and SOTT.org (I think) and sometimes from Voat.co, a forum, etc. Since I do the work of finding and posting them, I think it's fine if I add my comments to some of the titles. I don't force readers to agree with me. They're free to comment in this thread. They can post their disagreements or ask questions etc. If a group of people meet in person to discuss science, would you criticize anyone who mentions the title of an article and throws in a personal comment? You seem to be obsessed with formality. I'm not, except when I write an article or paper myself.

I don't have time to read most articles to make sure they're well written. I figure it's valuable just reading the titles, or I improve the titles to make them more informative by themselves.

I'm always open to discussing how to improve things. If you have any ideas, feel free to mention them. I've started a number of threads on this forum over the years, suggesting that we discuss and work on improving science or some aspect of it etc, or having friendly debates. There've been a few results, esp. with CC, but not many so far. There seems to be a lot of progress with AI lately. Maybe we should pool some money to get some AI and program it to improve science for us.
