is this really an acceptable trivia item

Just curious if I'm the only one that thinks this isn't an acceptable trivia item as seen here . I tried to delete it but was told "Unable to verify." so I guess imdb could verify that this was true which is why it's out there.

what's wrong with my link? Because it says it's a trivia item there's a click to "open" it. Your link is just for its trivia items but doesn't zero in on one.

For reference this is the trivia item:
"There is a reference to Magnum's father having been in Vietnam. As Tom Selleck's Magnum had that Vietnam setting as his series backstory, after only 2 episodes into the "re-boot", this could a playful plot twist that implies that "new" Thomas Magnum, may actually be Thomas Magnum Junior ( the in-universe son of the previous Tom Selleck version). This clearly can be seen to suggest that the other 3 main leads may actually be the children, or relatives, of the original cast of characters. The new Higgins may well be the daughter/niece of old Higgins, etc. In effect, new Magnum could actually be "Magnum PI: The next generation". "

Mike: I agree that this "trivia" item appears to be just fan speculation and should not be included in IMDb.

act, no prob. i checked it after posting and wondered why it didn't go to the right one but i had the advantage of remembering it was a spoiler so i clicked whatever the button was. I should have added that to my original post.

Thanks for flagging, it's helpful to let us know the exact trivia item/submission reference number rather than linking to the entire list. This has been amended and should reflect shortly.

Hey! Elizabeth, Employee 
  
Original link
Was just the 'acceptable trivia item ?'
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8970730/trivia?item=tr4368744
This trivia item contains spoilers. Click to view
But there was confusion when the entire Trivia page was displayed
Future ? Just display the Item linked ? ?

The item is still there. Shouldn't it be deleted. Maybe someone else can try and remove it and will have better luck than me.

I will try, I submitted a removal, I hope that we get results.

I stated in my explanation that the trivia violates this rule:

Rumors: Unsubstantiated rumors cannot be accepted, although some early casting rumors can be interesting - so long as they're documented and verifiable (please include a link to your sources wherever possible).

TY. you are obviously liked better than me as your delete was accepted while mine was rejected, then rejected with contact us followup, and passed over here. Guess I eat green eggs and ham.
