Truth and The Internet

You can find anything on the Internet, some of it might even be true. Much of the web is dedicated to marketing, just like this site, and should be looked at as advertising. When something is presented as fact, remember to verify it from several reputable sources, and always watch out for echoing sites, where the same exact text appears over and over.
