So my wife likes to debunk the whole Roswell UFO non-sense, and she tried to make an answer. When she hit submit, the site told her she had too many links and couldn't include pictures. it was all I could do to keep her from closing the browser and just telling stack exchange to kiss her grits...

Isn't that a rather silly rule to impose on a first timer who may have a great answer as their first contribution? And wouldn't it prevent a person from earning reputation on an answer that doesn't have the requisite citations, thereby preventing them from getting to the point of actually being able to submit a good enough answer? Sort of a catch-22.

I would suggest this requirement be relaxed for this site in particular.

Too many links in a first timer's answer?
