This Is Not The Michael You're Looking For | 949 comments Because the thread for general request for fixing authors has gotten slightly out of hand (we welcome all of the input, there's just too much to easily keep track of), we're creating this locked thread as a repository of author names that need work. We'll try to update this semi-regularly. Please post all comments, etc., in the general discussion thread.

Also See this thread for authors which are actually publishers.

First created on May 4, 2008, by skimming through posts for the previous month or so.

Last updated July 31, 2008.
