Feel free to read or link to these essays. But please do not place copies of them on another server. 

Because so many people have ignored this request, I am forced to remove links to my papers. I HATE that.
However, the behavior of dozens of people — including many who should know better — requires it.

If you wish to use them for your class, l will email you a link as long as
