[offtopic] Since I cannot comment, let me just throw in an old story I heard from my professor. Some time back, a paper by Einstein and Preuss was being cited all around. Now, we all know some names that collaborated with Einsten, but this Preuss is kinda unknown. Turns out that the journal name of the reference
Einstein, A. (1931). Sitzungsber. Preuss. Akad. Wiss. ...
after some citations, got to be promoted to coauthor. NICE! Here's some (german) reference: http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/S._B._Preuss
Now just to account to the statistics, I know some people that skip the reading of some papers to present seminars and talks, but I think they do check the stuff before writing something up. As to me, I try to read some stuff and then check the references and references of references until I give up. But that doesn't matter, since I'm far from publish anything at all, as it seems. Cheers.
