Giving Credit Where Credit is Due
Giving credit where credit is due is a powerful and widely respected rule among analysts. Sometimes, certain types of opportunists (non-analyst types) will try to leverage the work of an analyst without giving credit where credit is due. Similarly, some of the opportunist types are inclined to use the connections/experience/reputation of an analyst without properly respecting those connections/experience/reputation, some of which may have taken years to earn. Needless to say, this doesn't go over very well with the exploited/leveraged analyst, nor the larger analytical community. Giving both respect and credit where they are due is important. People take notice of these things.
