    I always think it is a good idea, and manners to give credit, where credit is due.

    I think the phrase is "credit where due" and I strongly believe in it. I am a loner and am happy that way, but I understand the value of assistance and or teamwork and it needs to be recognised.

    Well Larry, anytime someone helps me out in any way I always give credit where it is due. It is only the right thing to do since it is also their hardwork, ideas, etc going into the work.

    I am always quick to introduce to the homeowner I am working for, who the various trades people are and what they did in the home building process.

    Same goes for anyone helping me restoring the cars and tractors we have done ( which is family), as well as any woodworking/cabinetry jobs that I have been contracted to do.

    I always try to give credit where it's due.

    Sometimes I forget I hate that when it happens

    In my opinion, it is not only Proper Etiquette, but Common Courtesy, and I have always done that.

    I have always resented the fact that we see all kinds of important "Research Papers" published by many "Big Name" PHD type Professors from the Higher Institutions of Learning, that truthfully, they did very little work on. They have their students do all the research and write up their findings, and then they basically edit their student's work and publish it with only their name on it as the Author, like they did it all themselves, with NO CREDIT given to those that actually did the work. The thing that REALLY Bugs me about this, is that everyone seems to think this is a perfectly acceptable practice.

    I think that it is very important to give credit to others for advise, work, inspiration, etc.

    Ditto what the other have said.

    But, I don't expect it to happen now days! Someone always wants to Grand Stand on the backs of the others that did the work.

    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.
