David mentions his article 'The etymology of "Jizz"', as "possibly the most cited and most plagiarised of all the articles published in CBN". I first thought he was teasing and that the suggestion is author's pride on overdrive. Then I thought it could possibly be true. It would be quaint to be true. It is something that appeared well researched and has relevance far beyond our local scene. It is certainly one of the more memorable articles. Then I wondered, how would someone make that comparison.
Taking another aspect, I still think the most important or enduring CBN article was Schodde's 1988 description of new subspecies of birds but that may be my editor's pride on overdrive, as I was lucky enough to hear the story as it happened and be involved in it. Don't know whether this comment goes anywhere.
