The Wikipedia article says "Cut-the-knot is a free, advertisement-funded educational website maintained by Bkey Bauer" but in looking at www.cut-the-knot.org and the award sites one sees only mention of "Mathematics professor-turned-software developer Alexander Bogomolny". Shouldn't this be clarified? — Preceding unsigned comment added by TPBisson (talk • contribs) 16:54, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
i.e., include this internal link. Michael Hardy 00:04, 12 December 2005 (UTC)
Michael's suggestion would be easy enough to implement. I will try to work on it say in the coming week. However, I kind of doubt the need of this article to start with. But oh well. Oleg Alexandrov (talk) 00:26, 12 December 2005 (UTC)
I solved the problem by removing two out of those four external links altogether. I would argue that four links to one website is more like linkspam. If the readers visit one of them, they should find their way from there to the other ones I would think. No? Oleg Alexandrov (talk) 16:38, 15 December 2005 (UTC)
Soon I hope to edit this article further in ways that will make the need more apparent. Michael Hardy 19:48, 12 December 2005 (UTC)
On some pages such as Euclid's algorithm I noticed Mathbot removing descriptive trailing text after an external link to Cut-the-Knot. Please prevent it from doing this in the future. Thanks. Deco 08:41, 13 December 2005 (UTC)
Hi Deco. Thanks for letting me know. I did supervise the bot and in places I put back the text the bot removed. Now, at Euclid's algorithm I happen to think the removed text is not a big loss, that's the reason I did not put it back (it is not a lot more info than already embedded in the link). If you disagree, I can go put that text back. Oleg Alexandrov (talk) 16:17, 13 December 2005 (UTC)
Cut-the-knot is a Google adsense money generator, and is abusing wikipedia's PageRank. I know one can argue if there other few hundred wikipedia links should stay or go but they shouldn't be flattered with their own article. —Preceding unsigned comment added by mgarde (talk • contribs)
We had this discussion before. The owner of cut-the-knot never edited Wikipedia until after very many Wikipedia pages already linked to it, nor until after we had this discussion. Michael Hardy 22:14, 18 August 2006 (UTC)
