Harvey Friedman informs me that he did not originally write what I am
quoting above, but that this is a quote from somebody else, found on
the internet.

He also informs me that in his message that I was quoting from,
everything below the words "SPEAK NO EVIL" (capitalization in the
original) is quoted from sources on the internet.  While I did deduce
that some of this were quotes, it wasn't clear to me that the above
was, too.
