As an infrequent poster, but frequent reader of this fascinating forum, it seems to me that it is normally quite easy to judge the competence and perspective of any particular poster.

I have no illusions as to how I come across; a small boy pressed up against the glass window with eyes agape at the wonders within... I think that'll be me

Cheerio,

Keith.

I just want to put it out there right now that I know all my multiplication tables up through eight's.

Long division has me stymied though unless I've had a good breakfast.

It's up to each user to back up his/her statements with citations (not necessarily direct cite to refereed journals, but those are most convincing). If they don't provide any citations, they have no right to complain if nobody believes what they're saying.

Even a statement saying "I'm a researcher in this field and this is based on my research" carries little weight, if you can't point to an article that says the same thing.
