Reliability Evaluation Formative

This site http://www.thedogisland.com/ is not reliable as a scientific source. This source is not reliable because of numerous different reasons. The first reason is that the page has a lot of ads, and a scientific page would not have a lot of different ads on it that are not related to the subject.  The second reason is that the author is unknown so there is no way to find out the name of the author. The third reason is that the page has no links to other sites or to other comments from people who took their Dog to the island. The fourth reason is that the linkto only sends you to the same page that you were in. The fifth reason is that there are a lot of links and ads on the site that make you buy something. The sixth reason is that in the forecast it always looks the same and I think that no island can have the same forecast forever. The seventh reason is that the site has no citations for any of their pictures. Or in other words Dog island does not exist. 
The descriptor for your paragraph is highlighted.
