    Good job. It is a better and more informative site.

    Actually, you did not "fix" the URL. Yours takes us to an entirely
    different site. As one who wants to learn more about cooking with different
    spices -- and yet I also want to know which are "hot" -- I was happy to see
    *both* sites.

    So, here are both of them (in case anyone else would like to view them
    both):

    The Katzer site is the most comprehensive anywhere, and is selling
    nothing... the spicecentre is a weak redundancy, and is a commercial
    site.

    The Katzer site is the most comprehensive anywhere, and is selling
    nothing... the spicecentre is a weak redundancy, and is a commercial
    site.

    Thanks. The comment about selling is a good one (but I think "fixed" was
    the wrong term -- I think of that as someone who corrects a URL that has an
    incorrect letter in it or a missing letter). Nevertheless, I have
    bookmarked both sites because I immediately found something (bay leaf) that
    was listed in the "commercial" site but not in Katzer. If I found that so
    quickly, I assume there may be others -- and undoubtedly others in reverse
    (that is, in Katzer only).

    You're obviously not an experienced foodie.

    Look in the Ls, it's the first listing; "Laurel".

    You're also not an experienced netizen or you'd know to look for a
    search engine at most any reference site... had you used Katzer's
    search engine for Bay you'd have found Laurel. So in all respects you
    are indeed a Newbie.

    Actually, it made sense either way, considering the context of a "food"
    newsgroup. My objection was to saying that you "fixed" the URL and then
    also eliminating the original. Unless someone were reading the two messages
    simultaneously, it would be easy to conclude that you had simply added or
    removed some letters to "correct" the URL. As I said earlier, I'm actually
    glad to have both. I'm not much of a cook, so I'm using this NG primarily
    as a learning tool rather than as a place where I can be a contributor.

    There are three different kinds of Bay Leaves on the Katzer site.

    The Katzer site is *the* spice reference. No other site comes even
    close.

    It's a figure of speech when someone tries to point you people to an
    inferior site. That same phrase has been used hundreds of times on
    Usenet to do exactly what I did - redirect readers to a better site.
    Call it poetic license.

    Beg to differ. IMHO, Steve was right (as was Sheldon); the Katzer site
    is considered the spice "Bible" to many, many foodies.

    In my not too humble opinion, still the best place for authoritative
    information on spices is Gernot Katzer's web page:
