Proper usage of "It's a fake" type posts

Fellow members,

Effective immediately, all messages pertaining to authentication which offer no information other than "it's a fake" will be deleted. This forum was intended to educate collectors. A three-word reply to a question posed by a fellow member provides no educational value to anyone. A simple explanation of why you think an item is fake is mandatory. If you do not "feel like" posting an explanantion then please do not post at all. The explanation should answer the question, not lead to to other questions. For example.

"It's a fake. The mint-mark is wrong" NO

"It's a fake. The mint-mark for this piece should be on two-lines, not one" YES

Any questions on the policy should be directed to me or the moderators. Any member who happens to come across one of these "three-word" type replies is encouraged to report the post so it can be deleted. At the bottom left corner of every post there is triangle with an exclamation point in the center. Clicking this button will send a copy of the message to me. Your information will be kept confidential.
