I will describe on the one hand how the sting was removed from the so called Black Hole Information Paradox confirming a wide spread prejudice. On the other hand I will describe how doubt is cast upon a prejudice regarding the need to resolve some singularities in theories of gravity. The work described is based on work in collaboration with J.L.F. Barbon.
