That's really a pitty. How can someone profit from your work (aka 
"Shoulders of Giants")? What worth is it pointing to us, how bad our 
label placement is and how good it could be by not giving us the tools 
to fix it?

Sorry for that general rant. I'm just sick of people doing wonderful 
things without telling anyone about how they did it. How can humanity 
evolve with such a mindset?
