I think it is very unfair on Chris Caldwell to
cite him in the acknowledgements to this document,
which purports to be a submission to the Royal Society.

I appreciate being thanked, and indeed you are all
thanked there (as a community). But my concern
is simply that it could be taken to imply that I am
endorsing his work--which I do not. In fact it might
naturally be taken to imply I have seen his work,
which I have done in only a very cursory manner.
So I'd appreciate my name being removed from the
thanks. At the very least I think it would more
correct for him to write "My thanks to
Dr. Caldwell for creating a useful web site and..."
which clarifies our lack of interaction.
