A lot of this information falls under the category of "lore," with all the characteristics of lore: Good, bad and indifferent data with mostly empirical evidence in support.

Even though we communicate with writing, this forum still functions on the word-of-mouth template. Every participant brings his own experience, observations, experiments and knowledge to the discussion, where it is sifted compared, contradicted, bolstered, ridiculed, modified, changed and accepted or rejected.

This is pretty much the way knowledge has been handed down though the millennia, even before the advent of the written word.

Some sociologists and educators still think this is the best way to learn. I can't disagree.
