Yeah me too. But I always only recommend stuff for the book that I feel is
appropriate for the book (after having considered the bigger picture). I
mean, I have tons of stuff in my own builds which is most definitely not
suitable for public consumption.

This is not directed at you Gerard as it's your book and you have the
privilege of doing whatever you want :-) but all too often some other folk
around here have the "What's good for me is good for the book" attitude.
Those folk really need to pull their heads in and take a step back and stop
being so selfish.
