Many of the links here do not work any more, because naming conventions have changed and writeups have been renamed. It shows two things: 1) editors work a lot; 2) metanodes are useless because E2 is a moving target and links should be made to concepts, not to specific nodes.
I have tried to evaluate most of these nodes, so every
link should point to actual content. This writeup includes information from a writeup by stepnwolf.
