Oh, I see your point and have made it myself.  Unfortunately, economics seems to be dictating otherwise to them for right or wrong.

The only productive suggestion that has been made to me is to put up a parallel site for the book that includes LD.  Michael Hausenblas has offered the domain linkeddatadeveloper.com, which was his original site for the book but has fallen into disuse.  Of course, I would need to be willing to pay for the site and take the time to operate it.

Would the community find that a useful thing to do?  I am willing to go to the effort if I receive a good number of positive responses.

Regards,
Dave
