PLINK is the first thing I've ever done with RDF - I hadn't even looked

possible, so I may resort to having some form of log-in system with a
verified email address, then presenting the user with any information I

that could be done by malicious/fake FOAF files.
I'm also going to be adding lots of new stuff related to geographic
