    I think it's ok to not reference the source if you don't remember it, as long as you say that. But then again, I have a background in journalism, where attribution takes high priority.
So... see... 'thing is, IMHO, the web site URL is the source. By citing a URL, you are citing the source. Who told you the URL doesn't seem important/relevant.

The way I see it, saying it's important to credit the person who told you the URL is like saying it's important to credit the library that I found the book in. You don't cite the library -- you cite the tome.
