From one of our Getting started guides for new students:
There is a general problem with the Internet which you need to be aware of, namely that it is not subject to any kind of quality control.
Problem? Isn’t that the whole point of the internet?
The practical tips in the guide are reasonable and relevant. They urge students to ask the right questions about the provenance and source of the information, and of the author, how topical it is, etc.
It’s the tone of the intro that bothers me.
As a general rule, I’d say that when it come to information, quality control is usually heavier on the control than on the quality.
And, to rework an old saying, the net interprets control as damage and routes around it.
