I could be wrong, but I think maybe just to discuss the possibility with the posters? Or let the posters discuss it amongst themselves? Or let people make blue ball and heart break jokes while taking bad relationship cliches and applying them to this recurring tease?
I think it's seriously just because the threads sometimes turn out fun... If I knew how to use that shrugging face smiley thing, I would use it here.
Edit: also, I believe the news post was that someone had made these claims; not necessarily that it was happening.
That's the thing..every website jumped the gun when some nobody writer put a rumor out there. FoB knows that a shit ton of people want a reunion/them back. This isn't a rumor to test the waters of how many people would buy tickets to this.
