I agree (also with Herb). Gary is the only one who can touch that page (I got locked out years ago by security Nazis... thus the wiki). We have a similar page (evolved from his) on the wiki that this could be addressed in. However, it doesn't even mention threads, and it's not the one linked to in the footer.
