Seeing people screaming to "ban WCCFT" in every thread is about the only thing that annoys me about WCCFT.
When you read their "leaks", you need to be ready for the possibility of it being from a bad source. You can't blame them for getting your hopes up. WFFCtech isn't a purely journalistic site. Everyone knows what they are. They bring the rumors, leaks, and otherwise unconfirmable information to one place and let you decide.. This is what they do. They release very early information from the kind of sources who give you very early information; they aren't always good, but WCCFT does tend to be very early on many important things.
I didn't think I'd ever find myself defending WCCFT, but holy crap. Take some responsibility. Manage your expectations. Taking things with a grain of salt is not only meant to be an insult to the source of information, despite that being how most people use the phrase. "Take it with a grain of salt" infers that you

Yes, WCCFT is very loose with what they publish. If your world doesn't fall apart whenever you need to question the legitimacy of something, you can benefit from seeing a less-filtered stream of news. Journalistic integrity is nice and all, but you shouldn't judge a source based on it's reputation alone. And if you only want to hear from highly reputed sources about future releases, you might as well cover your eyes and ears until launch day.
Personally, I think WCCFT draws the perfect line between "too early" and "just early enough to maybe get some good information." Sometimes they get a home run, sometimes they strike out. The good doesn't outweigh the bad; we're all enthusiasts, here. We're here to bring information out, and judge it's legitimacy.
