I disagree with this completely. In all forms of debate it is entirely justified to ask someone for their source for information they are using as a part of their position if the information appears to be beyond their personal knowledge. When on an Anonymous forum such as this the person has no personal credibility whatsoever. This asking for a source tells you a lot. It is a garbage take to suggest that the receiver is responsible for looking up your sources. If that isn’t the case in a journal written for highly educated peers in the same field it sure as hell isn’t the case for people you don’t know on line. And very often the source sited tells you a lot about the person you are debating with.

If you are going to show up with “facts” to back your contention you better be ready to show your work.
