In the spirit of Festivus and the airing of grievances….
There is something to be said for integrity. There is honor in giving credit where credit is due and there is genuine pride when an original idea is truly yours. But when all verbiage is spewed uncited, no credit given when due, even original thoughts are dismissed as being from obscure sources and personal integrity has taken a mighty beaten. Tarnished is that poor soul, even if he knows it not.
Be original and cite your sources.
So, anybody want to thumb wrestle? No snake, closed fist.
