    Yes, I've looked through other books as well over the past day; perhaps cameron would be good enough to list her other sources for this?

    No, the reason that "some" (like me! ) ask for sources is to prevent more myths and lies being added into the Elvis world.

    If someone comes on here and says "Elvis did x" when we know he did "y", then of course they'll be asked for their source! You can't expect to come on a forum, post a "fact" then not have its veracity questioned.

    What's frustrating is when someone says "Elvis did x"; they're asked for their source and then complain about being queried, then they slink away without informing the rest of us where the information came from in the first place.

    The Elvis and Ali story about them going out publicly together is a perfect example. You said this was true. Most people on here said it wasn't. "Look it up," you said. We did - the information does not exist. Yet you cry foul when we ask you for your source. And we're still waiting.

    What bothers me is the possibility of a newish fan coming on here, and seeing something erroneous (for example, "the Enquirer cover picture was proven to be fake" - still waiting on some info on that as well, please), they might then go out and keep speading such stuff.

    You can never ask a person for a source when they're offering an opinion, but when we're discussing factual, provable matters I (and I hope many others) will continue to ask for sources and references.

    It is because some are so confrontational that they get no replies, IMO.
    I might ask that everyone do the same. Show sources before misleading others.
    My source was shown . Some just deny it.
    There are scanners that help in showing ones info. unless it's just word of mouth.

    Where exactly did you post your source?

    I refer specifically to the Elvis/Ali public outings and the Enquirer picture being proven fake.

    I provide references and sources for each and every bit of factual information I post on here.

    Each and every time.

    I do not mislead others, and I resent the implication that I and others do so.

    Then please point to any thread where I have mislead others, or where I have posted incorrect or erroneous information.

    Or will you make this allegation without backing yourself up?

    And who are you again?

    Good question.

    A new member who is disagreeing after 10 or so posts?

    Eleven posts in 20 months; but that's okay.

    I don't mind people disagreeing with me; if he/she thinks I have mislead others with erroneous infromation, let them post a link to a specific thread.

    Sad if it is is true, but all of us have our "ups" and "downs" and Elvis is no exception to the rule, but it does not take away who really he was.
