That note regarding yacy was quite likely not backed by scientific proof 
but was someone sharing their - possibly flawed - knowledge on the topic 
- also, that knowledge was quite likely *not* discussed in detail on 
this list before they went and put it on that wiki page.

I would prefer that we _not_ require strong proof or prior debate.
