My information is well referenced and require no links since very little of my research was done online. The posts are long because they cannot be any shorter without losing information. Had I made it short then I'd have to answer a ton of questions. Why not answer them by including enough information to please to reader? You might not be interested in this subject and I won't hold that against you. But I wrote it for those who might be interested in the subject. Believe it or not I try very hard to keep my post short. But never at the expense of important information.
