Is this a problem? Every book* comes from somewhere, some interactions
between the author and his environment, both social and physical. In
this light CoV is just another forum for social interaction? If one or
other of us gains sufficient insight from those exchanges to write a
book, and if that book should be successful enough to reward the author
with (god forbid) a *profit*, why should we complain? I for one would be
quite flattered.
