Several people have asked for a source and you just ignore them. Now you've "heard" it. I "heard yzerman and lids are coming out of retirement and will be back this year. No source I just "heard" it
He said he heard it from the start. He has responded to requests for a source by telling people that he has no physical source and that it is just something that he heard.
What is it with people? Is reading comprehension so low nowadays that people can't understand the word "heard" means that it was something that was not sourced?
If you say you read it, you can provide a link or at least a reference if it was hard copy. If it was seen, you can provide a reference. If it was on the radio, you can provide the station and/or speaker.
If you just heard it, that's all it is. Someone said it. You repeated it. It may or may not be true.
If someone passes off something they heard as fact, that's one thing, but if they state outright that it was just something that they heard, then that's another.
We've wasted more time on this site asking for sources for things that aren't sourced than it's worth.
If there's a source, provide it. If not, say that there's no source (i.e. "I heard it.") and everyone just take it for what it's worth.
Not everything in the world is "sourced".
