On a related front, anyone else find out that they've magically had
their lists added to something called ListZone? (see bottom of this
message for one of many I got).
First, Stephanie, I'm guessing, and I think it's a good guess, that
they're setting thigns up by taking PAML and typing it into their
databases. did they ask permission?
Anyway, these people honked me off on any number of levels. First,
they didn't offer me their service, they simply put me in their
service and then told me to come fix any typoes. Well, the FIRST list
they mailed me about has been dead about a year. The second one I
checked, and there were significant typos in the dataset. And much of
the site is password protected and many of the links don't work, so I
can't find out who these people are and what their hack is.
Anyway, i've written them and told them to take all of my lists out
-- they can't get the data right, and they didn't ask first, and
that's enough for me to say "no, thanks". So far, they've ignored
that request, so I'm probably going to send a formal cease and desist
soon (I'll give them another week).
anyone else lucky enough to be offered this service? Were your entries right?
Sheesh. Anyway, be warned we seem to have another wonderful
list-index service doing things for you, with or without you actually
