Re: On making references: For or Against

I think a general rule of thumb for any continuity reference is that it should be done sparingly, briefly, and only if there's some actual relevance to whatever is going on in the story. Namedropping just for the sake of namedropping (with no relevance to anything), really is more of a distraction to the story, IMO.
