Dammit man. Stop with the clickbait ***. It's not a story, it's not a fact, it's a quotation of someone's opinion.

The wonderful thing about the development of language is that quotations get their own little indicators. They're called quotation marks and are used to indicate when something written is a quote.

****ing use them, stop trying to get clicks by stupid, clickbaity headlines. This is MyBB not some cheap, ****, useless, fake news *** website.

Honestly if I was RPM, whoever wrote that would get a written warning for posting drivel. Geesus, have some damn standards.

Do you see? Your readers have a better grasp of journalism than whoever wrote that.
