I agree this should be the case for official news topic but what's wrong with it if the post was in the rumours thread? People post things based on what they heard from their cousin's coach's grandmother's neighbour. Everyone knows the news in the rumours thread could be fake (indeed most likely it is) that's why people read the news in rumours thread with caution.
I'm talking specifically about the posts on the TRANSFER NEWS topic. Please see for example what crovolley wrote about Kosheleva. It's fake and has no links.
The TRANSFER RUMOR topic could have anyhing, incluing rumors created by the users themselves which I'm sure happens a lot.
