The ‘Net

After reading Rich’s [Grassi] columns this week in the Shooting and Tactical Wires I had to follow up with some thoughts of my own on the information highway. The ‘net is a place to go for information, and it’s great having access to all types of sources. The problem, and this is the case with anything, is you always have to consider the source.

I don’t surf the ‘net or stay up on the various forums. A friend will send me something to read or someone asks a question concerning a particular discussion. As I read I have to remember these are “public” forums where anyone can state their opinion.

As Tiger McKee and Rich Grassi points out, you can’t trust everything you read on The ‘Net. Here are two examples.

Thanks to Tiger McKee and Rich Grassi for pointing out a problem and then authoring examples of same!
