What's time-consuming is to standardize and to combine synonomous phrases;
eg, should "Data manipulation" and "Data Manipulation" be grouped together?
How about "Data manupulation", or "Data manipulation help"?
Or do yo just want to know if your dubious (in my opinion) "make history"
thread really made history?
