The 4Color Theorem and Abuse of Power
Posted:
Oct 2, 2002 4:48 AM


Excerpt from a message sent to the Open Directory at about 2:00 am EDT Oct. 2, 2002, via feedback form:
I see there are two changes in the Open Directory listing for Science: Math: Combinatorics. (1) My site Diamond Theory (http://m759.freeservers.com) is no longer listed there, after having been listed for about two years, and (2) Ashay Dharwadker is now one of that category's editors.
My site includes a page (http://m759.freeservers.com/rough.html) critical of Dharwadker's attempted proof of the fourcolor theorem. .... I wrote Dharwadker when I put up my web page critical of his wouldbe proof, but never heard from him. Please advise me soon as to how you intend to handle this matter. As you may imagine, I am very angry.
