For a better idea of how Folklore.org works, check the About Page:
Folklore.org is a web site devoted to collective historical storytelling. It captures and presents sets of related stories that describe interesting events from multiple perspectives, allowing groups of people to recount their shared history in the form of interlinked anecdotes.
The site is structured as a series of projects containing related, interlinked stories. The stories are indexed by their characters and the topics they cover, and may be sorted by various criteria. Readers can rate the stories, and add comments, or other stories.
Reality is subjective, and memory is shaped by both prior and subsequent experience, so two witnesses of the same incident may disagree about what transpired. Often participants have axes to grind, and they sometimes distort events to suit their needs, perhaps without even realizing it. The best way to see an event clearly is to view it from multiple perspectives.
The Folklore site allows anyone with an opinion to comment on a story, or to submit a story of their own. This should allow the truth to emerge more clearly through the intersection of multiple perspectives. Project editors are responsible for providing default views that eliminate irrelevant or offensive posts, but it's possible for the curious reader to see everything if they want.</blockquote>
