I agree with your original tactic, Dave. Posting to the list a
buyer-beware is an excellent idea. I brought up the situation with Dan
at one point a few weeks ago. Putting up warnings on the web site and in
the Marketplace would be akin to taking a stance on allegations one way
or another. Although I Am Not A Lawyer, taking a stand either way might
be construed as an endorsement, something we can't be liable for.

I hope everyone understands our decisions for all of this. If it doesn't
sit right with anyone, please fire away! I'm trying to be as fair and
reasonable as possible.

Being married to a programmer is like having a cat. You talk to it but you're
never really sure if it hears you, much less comprehends what you say.
