It's only fair to Nancy to point out that most of us were very pleased with
her overall approach to the article, which was one of our very earliest
important articles. And some changes did get made in response to comments.
But nobody has every really been correct in all details, which is the great
advantage of all community writing projects. When combined with expert
editing, we can deal with accuracy and improvements --we are still
pioneering how to combine the various elements of t he project.

I'm sorry to hear this. Well, Nancy is no long with us, so we can make the
necessary changes now, and if indeed she or anyone prevented others from
making necessary changes, or pretended to "own" an article, let that be a
cautionary tale for us (but nothing more than that).
