Hi. I actually brought up the issues with the references. While the
second article about the car is not self-published, it does not state in
the article that Danese is related to the owner of the vehicle or is
named after. While she leaves a comment thanking them for the
information about the Nardi-Danese Alfa Romeo Roadster, it is not cited

On another note, I think it'd be really great to see your families
writing documented. Perhaps there are other options for their release

appropriately, it'll be questioned. If someone wants to add the
information, go for it. I already did my part to re-write the article,
and Fred lent a hand too.

So, I'm rethinking my plans of eventual posting. I don't want to get
caught in a shit storm.
What I love is what I love, I don't want it spoiled by argument.
Plus Danese's article about the car wasn't self-published, so where's
Let it stand...

Perhaps I'll send it

Here is the removal of the information about knitting:
