Which leads to the next question - why keep them ? Whatever Chris and I might think, they are surprisingly influential, and much copied, especially in terms of style. For some people they define internet writing. And lots of people don't know enough to spot the mistakes. Not long ago there was a rash of ill informed material in the press on an obscure composer. I checked google to see what the source was. Guess what ?...... But I don't think there's much point taking them down as they make us think about what constitutes good or bad writing. There are those who think these are a model to emulate, just as there are those who see them as a model of what not to do. So keeping them on is a good reminder.
