A modern-day ailment unique to the exceptionally well-informed, especially as pertains to followers of current events. Those afflicted with source fatigue suffer the inability to name a direct source for something they bring up in conversation. In most cases the afflicted will emphasize their certainty that they are quoting a reliable source, although they cannot name a specific one.
Joe: "I saw the funniest news story today. A squirrel chewed into a power line, burst into flames, then fell down directly onto a new car. It rolled into the engine and blew the car up. I think it broke my ability to laugh."
John: "No way. Uh-uh. Where did you read that?"
Joe: "Oh, it was... um... I think it was from NPR or something. Or, um. Maybe... uh, Fark? No, no, I think it came in my email. Or... huh. Shit. I'm not sure, but I know it was for real.
John: Sounds like a bad case of source fatigue.

When someone steals something of yours, then expects you to thank them for it.
"But honestly Monica, the web is considered "public domain" and you should be happy we just didn't "lift" your whole article and put someone else's name on it! It happens a lot, clearly more than you are aware of... If you took offence and are unhappy, I am sorry, but you as a professional should know that the article we used written by you was in very bad need of editing, and is much better now than was originally. Now it will work well for your portfolio. For that reason, I have a bit of a difficult time with your requests for monetary gain... We put some time into rewrites, you should compensate me! I never charge young writers for advice or rewriting poorly written pieces, and have many who write for me... ALWAYS for free!" -- letter to blogger Monica Gaudio over the theft of her article from the thief

Monica... ya dun been cook sourced.

A person that initiates a conversation or debate with the intention of trolling and/or wasting the opponents time by demanding sources or evidence for seemingly obvious and factual arguments, when sources and evidence are provided they either immediately stop responding or claim that the information isn't sufficient, the source whore will usually repeat the cycle until the opponent gives up and leaves.
{PersonA} I think cars in general better on fuel then trucks.

{PersonB} I want to debate you on this issue. Give me a source because I don't believe your argument.

{PersonA} Okay here is your source LINK.

{PersonB} The source you gave me is a private study and isn't adequate enough.

{PersonA} Alright here is another source LINK, this one was done by a popular university.

{PersonB} Hhmm. This one is not good enough either. The study is several years old and the science and engineering of automobiles has changed.

{PersonB} Okay I found you another source LINK. This one was made last year, so can we just debate now?

{PersonB} I would debate you but you keep giving me bad sources, I want a peer reviewed source made by a monkey written on a blood moon with a solar eclipse. Else I won't debate you.

{PersonA} Ugh..... Another Source Troll

to borrow without permission, to plagiarize, to steal someone else's work, particularly without remorse and with a sense of entitlement

Source: In November 2010, Cooks Source magazine was at the center of an Internet tornado after it was found that the magazine had stolen a writer's article without permission. An e-mail response from the magazine's editor implied that everything on the Web was public domain and the jilted author should have been grateful for having her work stolen.
I was going to write that paper for class, but I found one online that worked, so I cooks sourced it instead.
