On less contentious subjects, forums as the original source of
something are often referenced, though a press link is also a damn
good idea, e.g. [[09f9]]. "Press=reliable, forum=unreliable" is the
sort of muddled thinking that makes WP:RS a joke, particularly to
anyone who's ever been quoted in the press.
The main problem with Wikipedia Review is their known tendency to edit
and delete posts to cover their tracks, i.e. that they proceed with
malice. So an archived copy would be needed.
