Not "Fudail"[edit]

For now, it'll have to suffice that Allen1899 and ICOPROJ have no "Fudail", in the lists, and that I'm going to collect as many sources as available on the net HERE, but in my own PostgreSQL database I'm using also 8 other data sources, f.ex. Atlas of the Heavens II Catalogue, Antonin Becvar, and none contains "Fudail". It doesn't exist. Rather it is some "information" invented early in the history of Wikipedia, like User:Richontaban, that have propagated to this article without a clear tracking path. Rursus dixit.

Oh, I forgot the most important! It is essential for the reliability of Wikipedia to not use mirrors of Wikipedia as references, like for "Fudail" in the 17 Nov version of the article. Wikisky contains incredibly many spurious and "sponsored" names. Wikisky cannot be used as a source for any serious text. BBC seems to copy at least some of its information from Wikipedia, which is not an entirely reliable source for the previously mentioned desinformation history. Rursus dixit.
