I agree. There is no feasible reason not to give credit where
credit is due. It is the equivalent of violating a copywright: immensely
simple to do, but the moral respect toward the author is lost. Imagine
having a great idea posted on this list and then watch it become reality
while the name of the initiator is unknown. In other words, please
associate names with quotes.

Ingredi Externus!
