95% of you (plural) are so overly touchy that for 95% of our talks I
explain that "I am not a camel" (Polish saying). It also means that
only 5% read _what_ I want to impart, and not paying attention to

1) I'm not complaining that you are using wiki.
2) I ain't suggesting that you "shouldn't started that simple wiki page"
3) I only claim that as the page is not available from Wiki's menu but
from separate address, then this alone proves that the objective page
was created ad hoc, as a response to Jeremy C. Reed needs, and not as a
result of comprehensive policy concerning development of the
aforementioned wiki.

Negative. Let's all of us start creating wiki pages, ad hoc. Who will
then spend whole night making the wiki tidy and usable? Making things
ad hoc _is bad_ as it creates additional work to do. Of course for
someone else.
