antbase.net's promotion of antbase.org...
In his recent contribution in SysTax, a German newsletter on German GBIF related activities (aka biodiversity databases that are hardly any longer funded), Martin Pfeiffer writes about www.antbase.net.
No, it is not about antbase.org - but when you click on the link, or in fact anywhere on the first page, the home page of antbase.org opens.
It is confusing, and to be honest, it was confusing from the begining, when Martin Pfeiffer publicized that he started antbase.de, later renamed antbase.net. When I pointed out that there is already an antbase.org he just replied he wasn't aware of it, but I guess, from my own experience, got hipped by such things as fishbase, flybase.... So much about Internet literacy.
But anyway, I just wanted to say thanks for this sort of unplanned PR.
