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.
