Sorry, no offense intended.  I used the word "Organization" carelessly,
when I really meant "Family."  I wasn't clear on the distinction.

What I meant to say was that, since Xanadu stresses crediting authors,
even of brief quotations, it surprised me that Mr. Osako (obviously on
the Xanadu mailing list) would quote my entire post without once
mentioning my name.

I didn't ask for any administrative intervention, and I don't ask that
Mr. Osako be removed from the list.  I just ask that everyone be
sensitive and properly attribute quotations.  Thanks.
