First and foremost, thanks to Paul Doerwald, the developer who created the original site and maintained and extended it for many years (and also created the NowComment site). Paul has always been there for us with good advice (if only we had taken it all!) and assistance when needed, including graciously hosting the site on his servers as a favor. And high on Fairness.com’s requirements list, he’s a person of unblemished integrity. If you ever have the opportunity to work with Paul on a project, grab it.
Everything else below is from the Acknowledgements page of the original Fairness.com article archive site:

Public-Spirited Software Developers:
- OpenACS.org, the community that develops and maintains ongoing versions of the freeware open-source OpenACS community software that powers this site… and PostgreSQL Inc. for the freeware PostgreSQL database which powers OpenACS.
- Special thanks to Fanix Software for allowing us to license copies of its commercial As-U-Type utility for our volunteers; I now hate to write unless I have access to As-U-Type’s typo corrections, macros, and multiple paste buffers.
- The developers of Firefox and Firefox add-ons/extensions (e.g. Autocopy, Zotero, and NoScript).
- David Harris for the Pegasus email package; secure, powerful, free, and wonderfully ‘tech-supported’ by a large, knowledgeable, and dedicated user community.
- the thousands of others who contribute free utilities that make the Internet a safer, more productive environment.
