Mike's Pepper Garden


While it does not seem to be common practice on the Web, I believe that citing one's references is appropriate and necessary when collecting information from disparate sources. Listing citations provides two benefits: it 'gives credit where credit is due', which is a cornerstone of intellectual property rights, and it allows the Readers to judge and/or verify the veracity of the information for themselves.

This page provides a list of the major references used in constructing this site, and is linked to throughout the site where footnotes are needed to clarify the source of a given bit of information. Minor references are typically noted directly in the text.
