Well, no one is blaming here, for starters, and formatting is not the most
important issue, most people would not even care enough to pay attention.

There had been several attempts to clean up port descriptions in the past
few years, and lately thanks for cs@ who started to clean up COMMENT shit,
and other people who started to format WWW: page more consistently, not to
forget large shaving off old-style attribution few months ago (I forgot who
exactly did that).  Basically, in the old days port descriptions were a lot
more inconsistent and untidy.  I think we need to improve here and, given
positive momentum, it's about time, hence my email.
