Of course -- that's why my terms explicitly prohibit the use of my name
in marketing and promotional material without my direct permission.
That's why there's a seeming contradiction in my terms too -- I want
acknowledgment but I don't require it in places where it would detract
or cause unnecessary cost, and in fact I don't want it in places where
it might be more easily abused. Public acknowledgement != advertising.
