  1. Get the facts

    Have the facts before printing an article:

    "Mom is asked to leave gym due to her workout clothes..."

    Your article goes on the erroneous assumption that the woman at the gym was fat-shamed. What appears to actually be the case is that the gym does have a policy about what can be exposed on the body - irrespective of body type.

    So many social media platforms are quick and desirous to nail someone to the wall for the slightest perceived transgression. Doing so, in fact, is dangerous to society by ultimately leading so many to believe a false narrative.

  2. Stereotypes and stock photos

    Bad mom story = black stock photo
    Too many kids, husband in prison = black stock photo
    Demanding money from someone = black stock photo
    Man not agreeing with modern feminine ideas = Hispanic stock photo
    Man outrageously claims he's neglected by wife = black man/ white woman stock photo
    Heartwarming story= white stock photos.
    It's not 100% of the time, but enough to make me question if typical stereotypes are influencing the stock photo choices.

  6. Just want to state the multiplying by 11 post is wrong.

    Saw the multiplying by 11 post is not true in respect to teachers never teaching that. I learned it in elementary school along with other classes. And that was in the 60s. Does someone edit the posts?

  7. Attn: Katie Mather

    Dear Ms. Mather,

    The abbreviation 'PT' refers to Physical Therapy of Physical Therapist.

    'AT' or 'ATC' would indicate an athletic trainer or certified athletic trainer.

    This may seem inconsequential to you, but as a Physical Therapist I do not want to be mistaken for a personal trainer.

    Thank you,
    Barbara L. Goldstein, PT

  9. Stop promoting wasteful plastic consumption

    The article https://www.intheknow.com/post/smoothie-hack-meal-prep/ should either include alternatives to plastic bags, or, morally, the article should not exist at all. The world knows we should be using less plastic, but somehow In The Know doesn't think we use enough

  10. amazon echo 0.99

    As per Yahoo! article, Amazon's Echo dot on sale 0.99. Their link is invalid: 'If you want in on this deal, click here while supplies last.' The word 'here' is highlighted in blue as a hyperlink. You get: 'Sorry, we couldn't find that page. Try searching Amazon's home page.' Then when you go to their home page, it is NOT for sale.

  11. Pro boxer’s wife catches his hilarious dad hack on TikTok

    Bottle propping is dangerous and kills babies every year. The fact that this article is suggesting this is a parenting "hack" is stupid going to harm babies. Please take this off.

  12. Proof read

    There is a story about a woman pregnant with a little girl, and she disagrees with her husbands exwife theme to do with red. It said that his other daughters are 11 and 12 and they are named Rose and Ruby. But then the article says that his xwife died before his girls were born!!!!!! That makes no sense.

  13. Dillon Thompson's Stan article was just phenomenal.

    The article was very informative while still being an example of brevity compared to standard news fare these days. It explored the relevant ideas to the article without delving into multi-paragraph long tirades about irrelevant nonsense, and was quite well written.

  14. Feature articles on those who have happily returned to their birth gender.

    Politicized articles on transgenderism. People should not be cruel however, using the term "uneducated"to describe those who disagree with this popular trend is both unnecessary and condescending. If the featured couple choose to coo and pretend to each other that's their business. However! Transgender women are not women. I'm a woman, Tina Turner is a woman, Beyonce is a woman. "Transwomen", are men. Period!

  15. On the "About Us" page, there is an English usage error.

    On the "In the Know" website's "About Us" page (its url address follows the body of this message) there is an English usage error.

    Its text currently reads "In The Know will only retract an article after extensive review by the Director of Programming has found fundamental flaws in the reporting, and always with an editor’s note."

    It may be corrected to "In The Know will only retract an article after an extensive review....[etc]."

    The phrase at the end of the sentence is misleading, and leads to the sentence having an unintended meaning. Right now, the meaning of the sentence…

  18. I cannot believe you allowed this article to run.

    No pet should ever be a trial pet. Also, I am a bunny owner. Let me educate you before this article results in many rabbits being dumped at animal shelters. Rabbits can live more than 10 years if taken care of properly. You are making a commitment. They require vet visits, proper diet, lots of space and care. They cannot live in a cage. They diet is costly. Hay is expensive, especially good quality hay. As for droppings not being everywhere, yes, they still will even if litter trained. Don’t even get me started on how destructive they are. You…

  19. Delete trial pets article

    This article is ridiculous and inaccurate.

    1. No pets are “trial pets” and referring to them as such spreads the ignorant notion that they are dispensable.
    2. Articles like this are the reason that 7 million animals a year are abandoned in a shelter (rabbits are 3rd on the list next to cats and dogs).
    3. Let’s specifically focus on rabbits... they are not “low maintenance pets.” They require more time and attention than just about any animal. They are fragile, skiddish, and suspectible to a vast array of illnesses and conditions. They need constant exercise but it’s not exactly safe to take…

  20. Please delete misleading article ‘Trial Pets’

    I am flabbergasted this was allowed to be published. No animals are trial pets! Each animal is a commitment and deserves to be well looked after. This is a misleading article because majority of animals take a lot of work, especially rabbits and they are not suited for kids! This article shows a lack of competency on behalf of the author for not doing research. This needs to be rectified immediately, with a factual article
    Published about the realities of rabbit care. This article will be responsible for parents getting their children rabbits, which are ten year commitments, and then…
