would you not be somewhat obligated to provide some references just like you requested from others in that same thread
If I were making a claim that was the argument, sure. In this case, the poster already had some information. I suggested that there was a wealth of information out there to be had, but that at this point, there was much to learn and understand to have a proper discussion and in order to have it, the poster look some of it up.
I never made a claim that required me to present evidence, I am simply asked to provide evidence over and over and over and I had no reason to do someone else work for them.
