People who can't respond with anything but stupidity, hide and judge everyone as clueless, nuts and spam!

Well bygod that impressed me! However I said 'most', what made you think I was talking about you? I find it a bit funny that one would go to a website for Websters dictionary, I have one, its a book, just call me old fashioned!
I never indicated that I thought you were referring to me.
You indicated in your post a lack of understanding as to the meaning of the word "credible" by many here. I simply posted the definition as to educate those that may not know.
I too have a real life hard cover dictionary, as well as a thesaurus and many other reference books.
I am a bit confused as to why you find my linking to an online source "funny". It would be quite an accomplishment posting an online link to my real life reference material.
I guess I could scan the definition and post that. However, since a scan can be altered, the "credibility" of the scan could easily be challenged. Probably better just to link to a reputable online source, as I have done.

I could likely find a word definition as fast with my book as your link. I find it funny because of people in general today, feel everything must have a link. I make a valid attempt to teach young people in a 2 year college, who order and pay for an online book to read on their laptops and tablets. I don't get it. What happens when the grid goes down?

Why post a link when having an "online" discussion?
I imagine if the grid goes down people will use books (although reading will be the least of our concerns).
I, like most people today utilize both and it is customary to post an online source when having an online discussion. Not everyone will have access to the same real life reference material.

Just to add some politics to the mix...before I go.
Here is the values some people on here hold true and consider themselves PATRIOTS for!
Real republican party you have patriots?
The term neo-Confederacy is used to describe twentieth and twenty-first century revivals of pro-Confederate sentiment in the United States. Strongly nativist and advocating measures to end immigration, neo-Confederacy claims to pursue Christianity and heritage and other supposedly fundamental values that modern Americans are seen to have abandoned.
Neo-Confederacy also incorporates advocacy of traditional gender roles, is hostile towards democracy, strongly opposes homosexuality, and exhibits an understanding of race that favors segregation and suggests white supremacy. In many cases, neo-Confederates are openly secessionist.
Neo-Confederacy has applied to groups including the United Daughters of the Confederacy of the 1920s and those resisting racial integration in the 1950s and 1960s. In its most recent iteration, neo-Confederacy is used by both proponents and critics to describe a belief system that has emerged since the early-1980s in publications like Southern Partisan, Chronicles, and Southern Mercury, and in organizations including the League of the South, the Council of Conservative Citizens and the Sons of Confederate Veterans.
Overall, it is a reactionary conservative ideology that has made inroads into the Republican Party from the political right, and overlaps with the views of white nationalists and other more radical extremist groups
How proud you must be!
PEACE
tofy
I would be very interested in a link as this information seems very prejudicial and totally unlike you tofy. True Patriots would NEVER consider segregation, white supremacy and most other ideologies which were listed.

You do make a valid point, you citeing your work is not my point. Imagine this senerio if you will; If the grid were to go down, let us say in a case such as the super-volcano at yellow stone erupting or in the event of war or any number of other things. If you can't cook, which would help a cookbook or a link? You can't kill or dress a deer, there are books to teach that, as well as an untold number of skills. My point is people are looseing their ability to think without the aid of a computer or similar device. I am not saying these are not useful tools, they are. However is education really inhanced by a total dependence on the device. When I took Comp I and II, I did my essays in ink on paper, my works cited, were from books; given that same situation today, how many would pass a college comp class? The internet came into functional existence in 89 or there about, and in less than 25 years people can not live without it, over-dependance on a machine is my point.

If I misspelled anything, I didn't use spellcheck, would have been kinda like cheating in this context!:)

Most all books written since the deployment of the World Wide Web will cite references to web sites.
The smell of a library still conjures my imagination; I traveled the world through the words of Edgar Allen Poe, I travelled through time on the words of William Shakespeare and Miguel de Cervantes, I gained wisdom at ripe old age of 10 when I read Plato's Republic. I am as country as any rock in the hollow...and I am a geek by definition. <3 thanks for reminding me of the library.

I agree in essence. We have become dependent on computers.
However, that can be said of any age. We tend to become dependent on the machines and technologies of the age. Cars, phones, lighters, packaged food, ect.
That being said, as to the overuse of the net, we still have books. We still retain the ability to read (Albeit sometimes in abbreviated forms)so in the event of a catastrophe the likes of that you have described, we will simply break out the books.

Do we have a post even prediction? An incorrect one at that.
I will do you one better. I predict that after the deployment of electricity nearly every home in the US will use electric lighting.:P

Sorry ARI, just got back.
I find Poe a bit ‘dark’ for my tastes; I am a huge fan of Twain in American literature. I’ve read a bit of Shakespeare, and enjoyed what I’ve read. It’s been a long time since I read Plato’s Republic; I question his philosophies in respect to the societal absolutes he envisioned, such as the three classes with rulers ‘born’ for the function and all others unfit and his concept that justice could form in and of itself. I find his views of property ownership troubling. I liked Aristotle’s Politics more to my liking; in that governance is of and for the people, as well as his view that property ownership enhanced citizenship. Our founding fathers borrowed some of his views, albeit via St Thomas Aquinas; the first true political scientist, who studied Aristotle and admired his philosophy. Just my view.
