Umm, I wasn't badmouthing them.  When they first put that up there, 
way back when, it had no link and basically copied what I wrote.  I 
talked to several people about it, and then added in a link, which I 
am pleased to see has survived.  I just dislike the policy of many 
sites where people think they can lift passages and not attribute 
it-- and no, I was not just referring to wikipedia.  Online 
"borrowing" without attribution is a problem for many sites.
