I agree with everything in Hardy's post, except that I would emphasize 
that while I can certainly accept that Shakespeare was complaining about 
the 1599 edition, as well as the 1612 one, I feel it necessary to make it 
clear that this doesn't mean Shakespeare was not (in that case) also 
offended by the 1612 edition, according to Heywood.

I agree completely, and in an e-mail reply to Bob, I wrote, "Fair enough."
