It's always going to be easier to believe in the integrity of those who are quick to share credit than in those who will tend to obscure it in their own favor.
I can see that, but that presupposes that those who are willing to share credit (at the cost of discrediting the professional integrity of another) are beyond reproach. Is it not possible that they are fibbing a bit in a passive-aggressive sort of way?
It reminds of people who preface their criticisms of others with something like, "I am not saying he's a bad guy or anything but...." and then proceed to explain quite diplomatically how bad a guy they really think he is. Know what I mean?
