Re: The truth about SPARQL Endpoint availability

I think this is great, but I am wondering if there should be some way of
differentiating between the original endpoint and third-party endpoints.

The GeoSpecies/TaxonConcept endpoint is the same, but there are other
third-party endpoints.

I don't understand why the statistics for the GeoSpecies/TaxonConcept
original endpoints are different since they are the same site.
