tell people to do their own research and they you will not give them the answer or a link, that they automatically think that you don't know what you are talking about?
sort by best latest
"It's amazing how one remembers -- far better -- what they've learned when they've personally sought it out" I agree totally with that statement! They don't learn half as much given all the answers as they do in finding them themselves.
Wht would anyone learn if it is always given to them on a silver platter with a silver spoon. I have given my sources more than once and yet they still ask. I am tired of constantly giving the links to my sources and being ignored.
How does searching for your source teach someone anything? Unless you're trying to teach them how to use search engines...
There's a reason academic papers and professional studies require sources to be cited. It's supplemental.
How do you learn anything if you do not go looking in the first place? I give keywords and phrases. They don't have to be my sources and never said tht they ever had to be.
I guess it depends. If it's a topic someone has never researched, then sure, tell them to do research. But a lot of what I see on here is someone who already has researched the topic but not come across what the other person is referencing.
True but I didn't mean just on here. It is on other sites as well. I take a look at both sides of the subject and will always look at the opposite one they reference in their subject too...4 intance my McDonald's questions..it was 1st on my FB page
