Am I a bad Web Citizen?

I noticed in my previous post I did not include any links. There were many things in the post I could have referenced, but I did not, because I was lazy. I am relying on the extra level of indirection that Google provides - if someone is interested in something then they can Google it. This is wrong for two reasons.

First, I can include links that back up my case. Google may turn up links that weaken my case and reduce my credibility.

Secondly, the Web depends on links and they are of fundamental importance to the Web.

Mea Culpa
