A link would have been fine - people can access what each one of us has to
offer, and each of the authors is responsible for their own creations.
There's no reason to copy each other's work; in fact, I see it _stifling_
innovation. Why not spend the time & effort to do something _original_?

Creating Web pages with good content and reasonable presentation is much
harder than it looks. I have no problem with someone looking at what I do,
and asking for the code used to create my pages; I (and I'm sure others) am
happy to share what I've learned. I _do_ object to it being stolen outright.
