Quite so. I ascribe the prevalence of rumor in the SCA to two
1) small-group dynamics.
2) utterly lousy news dissemination. SCA newsletters don't have news,
in my SCA experience; they mostly have date/time/event info, contact
info, research info, and not much else. I've heard some post-event
reports at meetings, but most attendees don't talk at large about
their experiences and opinions, and the only printed event reports
I've ever seen was a "Rootie Kazootie" (sp?) column I saw once for a
few moments from an old Steppes Letter.
