techieindex.com has been a real problem, in fact.

Except that.. they claim to maintain a SAS presence, which is anything
but the reliable, expansive resource they claim. The 'reliable' parts
that I saw were all lifted from elsewhere, and who knows whether they
had appropriate permissions to do so...
So I see this discussion as on-topic for SAS programmers, just because
of the problems techieindex.com introduce into the subject-matter area.
Even if the original post was nothing but badly-disguised spam.
