It was pretty well summed up in the May 23, 2015, Bizarro comic strip.
There is a cave man sitting on a rock, looking down at another man sitting cross-legged on the ground with a stone tablet, a sharp stone in hand and using a stone hammer to make marks on the tablet.
The sitting one says: "But if you start writing everything down, these won't be prehistoric times anymore. Are you willing to accept the responsibility?"
Of course, now with blogs and all the social media, a whole lot of history is getting written or photographed down.
But, anyway, I try to do my part.
