It's a UK site, why would they be listed? As it is, I deal with over twenty thousand piano names, and it would be impossible to list them all on the net, most piano names are not available on any site. The number suggests 1889, and they didn't stop then.

In this age of emails and text messaging, it is all the more risky to read any kind of tone of voice into plain text. I apologise if you were offended, but try reading it again, in a more pleasant tone of voice. There was no "attitude", simply a statement of fact.
