Consider the following situation and explain what might be a problem with the credibility of the source or the thinking involved: You go to a web blog and find an article that says there is archeological proof that Erik the Red actually built a community in Massachusetts before the Mayflower pilgrims. The author, however, must remain anonymous until his dissertation is published that explains his proof. Pitfalls in credibility?

The issue is with the credibility of the person who is making the claim. Is an anonymous blogger really credible? Does the blogger provide any support for the claim about Eric the Red?

@O_Ojereisha Yes, that is certainly a factor. What @moses004 said is a major concern.

So, if a blogger doesn't support a claim or identify him/herself or explain in any way why the claim is valid, does that that blogger have very much credibility?
