30 Disclaimer Putting documents or pages on the web is easy, cheap or free, unregulated, and unmonitored. A self-publishing medium, that is, anyone can publish anything and not everything one finds on the Web is equally valuable or reliable. Especially public websites such as weebly/webnode and few blogs have lot of unauthenticated information Therein lies the rationale for evaluating carefully whatever one finds on the Web. The burden is on the reader to establish the validity, authorship, timeliness, and integrity of what he/she finds.
