On December 17, I quoted in full the post by L. Andrew Campbell
which is quoted in part below (the quoted part being Campbell's
quotation of e-mail to him from Arno van den Essen).

>As to the proof by 3 Russian researchers,
>Arno van den Essen (an authority on the problem)
>The "proof" is wrong as noticed by Moh.
>Also Parusinski told Orevkov that there is
>at least one more error in the proof.
>With the most friendly regards,
>P.S On Moh's website you can find his comments.

Moh has just posted 2 pages of comments to the arXiv; they make
