comment What does “I have no idea what I'm talking about” mean?
This phrase is pretty literal, not idiomatic. Can you clarify what about it you don't understand? Maybe this should be migrated to ELL.

comment How did 'purport' evolve to connote falsity?
I think this is fairly common to the entire set of synonyms here. "Appear" implies that there is some underlying reality which differs from the appearance, otherwise it wouldn't merely be an appearance; hence falsity. Likewise with a "claim", which is frequently absent proof/facts and thus suspect.

comment Help with CD title for Swedish historical society
How can you recommend "real" and "true" if you want to avoid opposites of "fake" and "false"? Those worsen the problem by being perfect antonyms.

In the second case, directly using "via" seems more natural.
