It makes me feel patronising having to spell this out to you but you had to make that flippant comment. The idea that you can't source reliable info from the web is a product of the same simplistic thinking as the idea that Wikipedia is rubbish compared to printed encyclopaedias. You have to have basic awareness of when it comes to sourcing any information from any source and we can all mess up, but we can all take measures to cross reference and seek more reliable sites (Not phoronix). I do this and I imagine most active internet users do this without even thinking. Certainly if a claim is a big one like the patent systems getting fundamentally destroyed it would be best either check it or ignore it till you hear the same thing from a more credible source. If anything now we have the web many people are more aware of the factual inaccuracies that was always there in all media.
