Absolutely true. I had a convo with veritas yesterday that illustrates exactly this point. It was his poll that I shared. Below is the text of the poll. It's a good read.

Oh brother....my only expression *facepalm*. There was a reason why I didn't answer that poll until today.

You will enjoy it, political. It was excellent in illustrating what tasty is saying.

Oh! I read it which is why you have so many liked comments that you are probably receiving notifications from.

You bet. At least in online communities anyway. I often laugh when someone says "what's your source". Generally the desire is to ridicule the source rather than gain new insight.
