(Note: Not everything you share has to be misleading/inaccurate. It can be something obvious in the context of the source, as you will see in my example.)
Disclaimer: While this is an educational forum and we do want to be critical, we also want to be respectful. This thread simply exists for the purposes of discussion and commentary, and is not meant to libel any specific owner of a source in any way.

Before posting on this thread, you need to ensure a few things:
I. the content you are about to share is entertaining (in your humble opinion) and is either painfully obvious or misleading
II. the content can be accessed by all audiences **and is appropriate for all audiences**
III. the content you have shared has not been DIRECTLY posted before or on another thread
e.g. there is a difference between merely stating a misconception (such as "wolves have alpha pairs") versus a source actually saying wolves have alpha pairs. Imaginary internet points will be awarded if the source is supposed to be considered reputable or is 'a big name'
IV. you include a link to where you found the information. If you do not, your post will be removed.
V. try not to quote entire articles/sources even if they are bad and their entirety is giggle-worthy because (a it's illegal and (b no one wants to read a wall of text in a giggle thread. If you must, share a few highlights from the article in quotes. If you need help with this, ask me or look at my posts for news threads. (You will find I only share the lede and maybe one or two sentences after, if that.) And, of course, please link back to where you found the information!
What better place to start than WikiHow?
How to Own a Pet Wolf
As cute as a baby bunny sleeping in a wine glass? Probably not.They are scary dogs but can be cute if trained well.
I feel like this is obvious.Do not take a wolf from the wild.
Seems to just perpetuate the 'alpha' myth; I know the wolves in the article aren't wild/are supposed to be captive/'pets' but...Become the Alpha. You have to be the Alpha of your wolf
