    Default Rumors Confirmed?

    Does anyone know -- or can anyone confirm -- whether the rumors concerning the confirmation of certain rumors have, in fact, been confirmed yet? Or, are the rumors still unconfirmed?

    Does anyone know?

    Could this thread be any more generic and general if it tried?

    Is that a rumour? Or did you see that somewhere?

    Sadly, I can neither confirm nor deny that at this time.

    Really? How interesting. I had heard speculation -- which, of course, I cannot confirm -- to the contrary. But, fishinthecity, if you can confirm the confirmation of the rumors, then it's alright by me.

    If a rumour is confirmed, doesn't that change it to a fact?

    Perhaps, but then what happens when a rumor becomes unconfirmed?

    Rumours are, inherently, unconfirmed. A group of rumours is a Gossip.

    Is there a term for a group consisting of multiple instances of gossip? Or are you, in fact, able to confirm that at this time?

    Naturally. A group of Gossips is a Gaggle.

    "There are known knowns. These are things we know that we know. There are known unknowns. That is to say, there are things that we now know we donít know. But there are also unknown unknowns. These are things we do not know we donít know."

    What rumour? And even if there was one you know I'd deny it!

    Well.. my mates dad's mate has a daughter that knows someone that works in some place that deals with someone - they were talking to them at the water cooler and found that according to their neighbour, the one with the black cat with the heart shaped white markings on it's chest - not the one with the noisy dog, that their best friend can confirm that their mate says...

    The rumours are true.
