[Closed] Re: concepts doc: 404s aren't meaningful?

(This message by way of formally wrapping up the comment...)

As a result of other changes to the document, the offending text is no 
longer included, so this issue becomes moot.  In particular, the entire 
section on social meaning that contained this text is being removed, so 
this comment is closed:  the comment was accepted, but in the event no 
additional change was required.
