Please let me know if this question belongs here to the meta page.
Why do many people not refer to reliable dictionaries of standard English language? Of course I know you should cite the reference properly as mentioned to a previous question but that is not what I mean. What's up with all these dictionary reference edits?
I regularly see strange reference citations which are definitely not part of what was mentioned in What good reference works on English are available? with platforms that people here on ELU.SE suggest.
In my humble opinion there should be some common agreement, e.g. if a definition of "cameltarian" in NY Times is a valuable resource. https://english.stackexchange.com/a/345465
Or what do people think about citing newspapers et al?
