Its not really that I blame you about.  It was my second favourite
suggestion and I can perfectly live with it.  I'm blaming others
(definitely not you) to show up for the only purpose to decide on a name
and than vanish.  (All people who keep on reading after so many years
are clearly not vanished so non of the readers of this mail are to be
blamed. ;-) )

I do not think that the technique itself is the reason that lots of
outdated information is in our Wiki.  Its the fact that people
(including me) do not really care about documentation.
