Indeed. It was an "obiter dictum", now changed in

http://primes.utm.edu/glossary/xpage/WieferichPrime.html
to the converse remark. Neither then nor now should Warren,

or others, seek to elevate it to a "conjecture" by Chris.

I have found Warren's contributions fruitful enough to set

aside his unfortunate tone in communicating them. Yet I am

still puzzled why he seems to need to be so combative in

what is, quite frankly, a place where he should not expect

the type of serious review that he might gain by taking the

trouble to write up his ideas in an appropriate form for

scrutiny by a more rigorous mathematical community.

In any case, thanks Warren, for the maths.
