Glen Worthey of Stanford's Humanities Digital Information Service wrote
on 4/28 to say that various Chadwyck-Healey fulltext databases of
English poetry, prose, and drama were "mistakenly advertised in this
forum as being open to the public."  As the bringer of that news, I
reject the "mistakenly advertised," for my post was perfectly correct in
stating that the public did have Internet access, though it is now lost.

I believe the privatization of the common literary heritage of humanity
borders on evil, and universities--public universities especially, but
even private institutions--neglect their moral duty to promote universal
learning by agreeing to restrictive licenses.

I am not a hacker but I do freely command "open sesame" as I explore our
vast information utility, the worldwide web.  I will continue to alert
researchers on this and other lists of online discoveries.

Biting my thumb,
Al Magary
