This article now uses list-defined references. This means that the details and metadata of all reference citations are collected in the references section, and each is identified by a reference name. Within the body of the article, citations are made with markup such as <ref name="fwhy" />. This format means that the details of the citation meta data do not clog the body of the article when editing. It also encourages proper reuse of citations.

There is apparently another John O'Neill, a Canadian, who is listed as a sociologist and Philosopher, and who writes on topics somewhat related to those of this John O'Neill. Care must be taken to avoid confusing them in references. DES(talk) 09:37, 2 April 2010 (UTC)
