There is an issue with that, the same reason 90% of letters shared IG are accepted as fact. Its highly unlikely they actually made a good forgery, especially since how that specific character talks is different than the person reporting the message.

Yes, but there are many other ways short of outright forgery. Taking things out of context, selective quoting, taking several messages and pasting them together...

The first one is known to happen, the second does everyone in a while but the several messages thing doesn't really work unless its all to one person unless and that person doesn't go on the forums.

That all sounds too much like metagaming.
If at first you don't succeed, don't take up skydiving.

It sounds like fun, actually. We could have an entire forum dedicated to "suspicious quotes", where people can post letters and forgeries and others can guess if they are real or fake.

That does actually sound sort of amusing.

Sounds fun.  This should be a metagame.
