Suggestion: Change thread subject to avoid misunderstanding

The subject of this thread ("The Danger of E-books by Richard Stallman") could be misread as meaning that Stallman's E-books are dangerous. I believe you mean to say:

"The Danger of E-books" an essay by Richard Stallman

Thus more clearly denoting "The Danger of E-books" as the title of an essay, an essay whose author is Richard Stallman.

I suggest changing the subject to more clearly convey the description you intend to convey.

However, I don't see any way to edit the title. Is there one? Perhaps we will just have to have faith in people knowing who rms is.
