Yes, at my request :-)
I have also marked the Wikipedia article for Speedy Deletion, although
I can't delete it myself as only Wikipedia Administrators have
permission to do that. (If anyone here is a Wikipedia Admin, please
do delete this article!)
In the mean time, I'd take it kindly if y'all could just pretend that
none of this ever happened, then squeal in delight when the paper
actually does come out in a month or two. Apologies once more to you
all for the inconvenience. Ironic that this should happen just five
days after Bill Prker posted this article over on his blog Chinleana:
