Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Math TLP...
Date Tue, 27 Aug 2013 13:57:42 GMT
Hi All:

I'm only a casual [math] user (we use [math] at work for some *very* simple
things), but I hope that we, the wider [commons] community, has been
beneficial in sharing expertise in Java, design, and other non-mathematics
but programming related issues. That whole thread about exceptions a while
back for example.

I'm note sure what difference having one less dot in the domain would do
for you. I can't see it changing how Google would answer queries
differently.

This would just be a marketing move IMO with a potential loss of shared
expertise from [commons].

I won't stop it but I would think it sad to see it go ;)

Gary
