Nutty inter-blog linkage

On the top of my Google Mail (which I highly recommend), I see a headline reading Engaged – Refurbished iPhones are an excellent source of previous users’ data. I click.

Obviously that’s not the article source, so I click on the source link and come to The Unofficial Apple Weblog’s Refurb iPhones still contain previous users’ data.

That’s not the original source! I follow a link to iPhone Atlas’s Refurbished iPhones may contain other users’ personal data.

That’s not the original source! I follow a link to another iPhone Atlas article: Warning: iPhone “Restore” does not delete personal data.

That’s not the original source! I follow a link to a blog named Jonathan’s Grits ‘n Butter.

Finally, the source!

Lazy, amateur journalism! This is the internet. Linking to the source is easy. Why make it so difficult to find?
