1138 Link Wars


It’s difficult to have any kind of discussion online without getting into a link war, where both sides post links to supposedly authoritative sources that support their position then counter-post additional links from other expert articles, thinking that the most links, or most famous source of a link, wins. The thread usually includes images from the link so that any hand-written message is overshadowed & ignored. It doesn’t take many of these exchanges to determine that link wars are a distraction from the debate and a waste of time. If you're an expert, speak up, but don't stand behind a link and claim you're right because the link says so. People want to hear what you have to say, they want to question your discernment of the issue, not someone they don’t know, and since every article & source is now suspect due to the political bias that has consumed the world, you can only rely on your own ability to identify people who you deem trustworthy though interaction with them alone, free of links: in the end it's their judgment vs. yours anyway.
