even credits to the creators), and perhaps most importantly, the entire
message base consists of one message posted last december.

Take a good hard look at the World Wide Web sometime. You'll find that 80%
of the pages consist of links to OTHER pages (often pages of links
themselves!), maybe 15% of the pages are redundant and duplicate info from
elsewhere, and finally, you get to the small percentage of pages that offer
some actual information.

A good deal of really poor pages would have died of lack of use if someone
hadn't linked to them, putting them on life support. Why prolong the
suffering and agony? I say we let this "Swat Cats" page die of it's own
accord, without trying to offer aid to it.

Ratman has worked hard to make belong to that small catagory of
useful web pages (Way to go, Rat!), and doesn't want to link to useless
