What are you referring to here? TheDavid and Semi::Semicolons?

Not guilty, your honour. There are 5 links to the excellent

as follows:

Part II  (1 link,  "Did Larry Ever Write a Japh?" Section)
Part III (1 link,  Response to Jenda comment)
Part IV  (1 link,  "References" section)
Part V   (2 links, "History" and "References" sections)

I just added an extra link to the References section of part V
(which was missing due to an oversight).

Is it that you object to the word "cabal" and want it replaced by another
word, such as "folks"? Please let me know which word you want me to use.

I was not trying to be funny when I used TheDamian; I used it simply as a
Perl Monks courtesy because that is his nick on that web site:

Having done that, I did find it amusing and extended it to "The Larry",
"The Schwartz", "The Hall" and so on in other places.
