Get off it!  I see no implicit accusation of anybody in Luiz's 
comments.  There are valid arguments for and against, in deciding the 
list on which this thread belongs.  For one person to disagree with 
another on this kind of thing does not imply accusation.  Assume good faith.

Sources of any kind, not just primary ones.  Erik's "source" for 
[[Porchesia]] might have kept the island there even longer than no 
source at all.  Too bad for our hoaxer that he didn't think of that.
