Quality of Information

You can find a lot of information on the Internet. In general, that's good, but it does also leave you with the task of separating the wheat from the chaff. Before you act on something you read -- even if you read it here :-) -- take a moment first to consider the quality of that information. You probably already do that automatically to some extent, but the links below may also help.

Remember to look beyond the names of sites and organizations. Anyone could call themselves the Health Education Authority, as a hypothetical example, and then go on irresponsibly to provide misleading or even dangerous information...

Be not too hasty ... to trust, or to admire, the teachers of morality: they discourse like angels, but they live like men. --Samuel Johnson, The History of Rasselas, Prince of Abissinia, 1825
