Time flies! I thought that name sounded familiar, and then I remembered it was a PW
question in 2011. Unfortunately no longer in the PW archives. Does anybody know when
and if pre-2015 archives will be restored? (Does anybody pay attention anymore, or is the
old Stumpers culture a lost cause? And I am not even refering to the restoration of
Concordia-era archives, which I know is a legal lost cause.)

Wikipedia's rules are probably more honoured in the breach, for good and bad. W's
definition of "original research" is a bit bizarre, and I long had the impression that W police
don't actually understand it or the concept as more generally accepted in academia. I wrote
quite a few original W articles many years ago, and nobody ever noticed. I was more
interested in testing their degradation over time, but that didn't happen as widely as I
expected, probably because they were too obscure.
