I've had an e-mail conversation with the owner, John Willis, over the
last 24 hours. Editing Online is a fictitious company. He made it up
as a way of demonstrating his web business model. It's just unfortunate
that he chose editing as the business for the demo, seeing that he is
obviously not an editor.

He's really ticked at all the negative e-mail he's been getting over it.
Let's leave him alone now, folks.
