LOL, yeah, that was pretty insulting. The best thing I can say is  
that at least it's not costing you revenue. How do nominations for  
freeware get made? How did TeXShop get in the running. BibDesk  
certainly needs to be up for such. Other than the TeX engines  
themselves, I personally think BibDesk is the single most important  
piece of software for my TeX work. There are plenty of editors, but  
BibDesk fills an especially essential hole.

Just a minute ago I acquiesced and added Papers to the mactex  
applications table. Sorry. However, if people find it there, BibDesk  
will also get additional publicity.

However, I did update the BibDesk description for you. IMHO there  
isn't a lot of reading of the site, though, based on the lack of  
interest in people sending Gary and me correction and updates. We get  
an explicit correction/update about 2x a year, lol.
