Richards is not cited as a "source" but used as a resource for an actual photo of the cartouche in question. Given you let your website lapse, if he did swipe it from you as you claim, then we owe him a debt of gratitude that it is still available on the web. But yes, in sweaty prostrating "desperation" to provide a photo of the actual cartouche the snaggle-toothed scourge Rick Richard's link was used.
