Yves Smith — PropOrNot’s Grandiose Fabrications

The intended mission of PropOrNot revealed. Not only intimidation but also censorship. Admit the error of your ways and you will be removed from The List.
PropOrNot has been eager to get sites to contact them to engage in “constructive conversation,” as they suggested in Reddit that it would be just peachy if TruthDig “were to reach out to us, though, we would probably have a constructive conversation with them that would result in their removal!”
In other words, PropOrNot, contrary to its claims of merely providing analysis, is seeking to act as a censor. In corporate-speak, “constructive conversation” is the sort of thing one has with an employee who is being put on warning for possible termination.
