[amsat-bb] WSR-036 Weekly Satellite Report and other credibility issues

Just received my weekly update on the satellite scene.
Read through and found.
1) A number of satellites proposed for launch that were in fact launched
2) Eagle : Proposed for launch 2009
3) P3E: Proposed for launch late 2008
4) Delfi C3 listing "proposed frequencies" when in fact it's been in
space for nearly a year.
No doubt there are other errors but I gave up reading.
Clearly there is a lot of copy and pasting going on here with no serious
updating at all.
I know it is really important that information for the report comes from
the mission controllers, but somewhere along the line a little common sense
editing is appropriate if any degree of credibility is to be given to this
