If you start that thread, remind me to follow up with a suggestion
that we simply put an explicit disclaimer, rather then getting rid of
the section entirely. I think it's probably useful for people, and a
disclaimer can easily make clear that we are merely listing, not
endorsing. The phone book doesn't have liability problems, after all.

Moving it to a separate page is fine too.
