On re-reading my previous reply, I see it is more harshly worded than I
intended. Andy was being helpful, and I hope I haven't discouraged him
from speaking up in the future. Sorry.
I hope people realize that asking folks to cite sources for methods is
not *just* an ego thing. Referencing papers in this group (hopefully)
increases their chances of being cited in press, which helps people
justify the effort they spend developing methods. And the papers do
tend to go into greater detail than the posts. Besides that, being cited
gives you a warm, fuzzy feeling :)
But I promise to try to be nicer about it from now on.
