"...do you cringe when you hear technobabble like "crowdsourcing," which implies that if enough people recite the same thing, it must be true?"
Thanks for that. I've not seen a better descriptive for both junkology and Wikipedia...and perhaps contemporary advocacy journalism as well.
Keep in mind though, the subscription revenues from junkologists probably pay a good percentage of the freight here. If junkology floats their personal genealogical boat, it's their own loss...and I very much appreciate their financial contribution to sustaining this terrific ACOM experience.
