A Plea to all Voynicheros

If you pursue a theory, please keep your website up-to-date.

As happened several times on the Voynich list during the last weeks, readers were encouraged to test other’s deciphering schemes based on publications on certain websites, but ran into dead ends or couldn’t arrive at the same results as the original poster. Only later or after complaining about this were they told that the information on the website was outdated.

This is impolite, cause it’s a waste of time on your readers’ part, it will make them irritated and discourage them to get seriously engaged with your theory, it will make them miss the point (of testing your theory), and it will do your reputation in general no good. So, it’s a win-win if you first update your website and then publicize it.

Thanks!
