Items which are alleged have been stated as fact.[edit]

Allegations must remain allegations until proven. I am in process of ensuring that they are stated as allegations. Fiddle Faddle (talk) 14:48, 14 April 2013 (UTC)

While I accept that using words such as 'alleged' make the text unwieldy, I believe I have now completed the task of (re)introducing the word and sense. Once the allegations are proven that may change provided there are correct citations to show the proof. Usually in such cases a court of law is the place that grants proof by convicting someone of a crime. Fiddle Faddle (talk) 15:33, 14 April 2013 (UTC)

It made sense to have these listed as allegations in 2013, but the three boys pled guilty and served time since then. It's not accurate to keep these listed as allegations.[1] User:TygerBright3 (talk) 04:25, 02 April 2015 (UTC)

Apologies, wasn't trying to impersonate you; still learning how this all works - honest mistake. User:TygerBright3 (talk) 15:49, 04 April 2015 (UTC)

New Laws under Consideration[edit]

The statement that "New laws are being considered after these events" seems be directly lifted out of the Suicide of Rehtaeh Parsons article and does not source anything supporting the same assertion in regards to the United States or events following Audrie Pott's suicide. Also see the [concerns under Suicide of Rehtaeh Parsons] put forward about the accuracy of this statement. 67.213.81.212 (talk) 03:49, 23 April 2013 (UTC)

This may seem perplexing to you, but Wikipedia is less concerned with truth than with matters recorded in what are termed reliable sources. In due time, when your statement is proven in such sources to be correct, then this aspect of the article will likely be edited. If it is not then it remains that it was stated at the time.
