Honestly, this mailing list thread about a "Sanger/Wales war" is very
overblown.  Larry, perhaps it is that title which has you uptight?

Gee, settle down.  I'm not accusing anyone of lying about anything.  I'm
just adding an interesting bit of historical trivia.

In mid-December, Jeremy showed me Ward Cunningham's wiki and suggested
it would be a possible solution for the constant complaints he was aware
of that I had about your top-down-community design for Nupedia.  When
you showed me the same thing a few weeks later, that was great.
