Reasonably good? Says who? Chairman Mao?
As far as Wikipedia being a scholarly source, I'd say that
choose many sources, Wikipedia among them. Someone [citation
commented about Wikipedia that it has 10 times the information as
encyclopedia volume but with a 10% reduction in accuracy. Indeed,
be wise to cross reference any information gleaned from Wikipedia
that is to
be used for anything more substantial than satisfying mere
using Wikipedia as an initial resource doesn't seem like a bad
idea to me.
To you? What is your credibility?
Coming back to the topic at hand, I hope that this will wrap up
over the perceived weakness in FileZilla (which, as it turns out,
an innate weakness of using FTP).
I disagree. The flaw that I have discovered still lies in the
FileZilla implementation of FTP. Until a SCHOLARLY source can
contradict my findings, I do not anticipate anyone on this list or
elsewhere swaying me. Thanks for your time but it is back to the
grill for me.
