Tropolism means talking about how you feel about facts, dahling. We would never be caught telling you how we feel about gossip, rumor. Conjecture and second-hand information, however, is one big gray area.
Our friend Aric Chen is giving Architect's Newspaper a little bit of conjecture, and some overheard statements, and a little bit of second-hand conversation thrown into the mix. What I appreciate about his brand of "I heard" is that he does a few follow up calls to at least weed out the blatently bad information, and his commentary is left to a minimum. Something we can all aspire to.
