I think this confusion comes largely from the way the developer site
displays new FTP contributions that you did not author, but that you did
post to the site, ie. the following cut and pasted off the main page of
the site...

It says "by George Greer" because you made the entry to the site even
though the snippet is, in fact mine.  It can clearly give the impression
that you are, in fact, the author.

Of course I've had snippets attributed to me which are not mine also,
and the above reasoning cannot be applied to that, go figure. ;)
