I did not provide any information to prove why the traps did turn black. I took a different approach and tried to explain to you why your conclusions were not, as you put it now, fact. Either you never bothered to stop and reason out what I wrote or you simply never read it. Either way just shows ignorance through the whole situation.
I never said that everything you share is misinformation but it seems to have happened repeatedly. More important is how you react when others try to offer a correction if something is indeed false. Humbly admitting a mistake is taken much better than attempting to deceive your way further into things. Not every experience should necessarily be offered up as advice. I have a N. x ventrata that I beat the hell out of but it pitchers, vines, and grows like a champ overall. I'm not gonna start telling people to grow their Nepenthes that way, even another ventrata. Primarily, you need to keep your audience in mind. If you're talking to an experienced grower and offer up an unconventional method, that will be received better than doing so with a newbie. It may be something that doesn't often apply in other conditions, which can lead to dead plants, and there is nothing more discouraging to a new grower than dead plants.
I saw that video well before that news article bought into the BS. Then and now the majority of comments appear to be laughing at what was clearly meant to be a joke, playing into it with outrageous responses, or just calling out that its fake. I don't believe that is very harmful. It is a youtube video, not cultivation information on a forum where people come to seek advice.
