Come on. Claiming that Reny wrote the DM is ridiculous. If Bill dictated
parts and wrote the others, as I am told by people with Bill at the

knew about permaculture, she learned from Bill.
Lotsa good stuff in that post--particularly about trying to use the DM
as a recipe book, its lack of references, and Bill's general
impossibility to work with--but plenty of exaggerated nonsense in it
too. Take that post with large grains of salt.
