Sorry, I shouldn't have expressed that so strongly. There's some
decent advice in WP:RS about how different subject areas approach the
issue of sourcing. It's just that overall I find the tone
condescending; obvious things are made more complicated than they need
to be; and there's a huge amount of fluff that just confuses people.
