For those who are new to SAS-L, a few years ago SAS Institute told the
owners of several web sites whose names included "SAS" that they had to
change their site names, or some kind of badness would happen. The two
sites that I remember were SASHelp.com (run by SAS-L contributor David
Ward) and SASConsig.com (run by SAS-L contributor Charles Patridge, now
under the name www.sconsig.com).
For people who know this history, the presence of "sas" in a site name
is a giveaway that SAS Institute is involved. But not everyone would
