From John Dixon:
Of course! (John's asking this in response to our reminder to our mailing list subscribers that we've moved our mailing list from ListBot to Topica.) The Take Our Word For It webzine will always be here, accessible whether you are a member of our mailing list or not. However, for those interested in joining our mailing list, or seeking more information about it, check this page.
It is unfortunate that rhetoric has gained such negative connotations.
From Roger Palmer:
No, you're not the only one. PicoSearch technical support tells us that there is some broken html in some of our pages, and that's causing the problem. We'll test that, and if it is in fact the problem, we'll be working on repairing those particular pages over the next few weeks. Meantime, if you do get a blank search results screen, let us know what word you were searching.
From Ted Friethoff:
Well, pink may mean "little finger" in modern Dutch but, form comparing cognates, we think the -je might not be a diminutive in this case. Have you looked up the etymology of pink in a Dutch dictionary? We strongly suspect that you'll find it comes from the a Germanic root pink(e) meaning "small". Similar words turns up in dialect words in England and Germany. (The flower and color words pink are quite separate words).
Our mistake. We meant niet wiet.
