[seqfan] Re: useless references?

There are two problems here:

1) personal communication to whom?
I assume that those are all to Neil.

2) Personal communication about what?
E.g., in http://oeis.org/A006013
there is such a remark in REFERENCES.
I cannot see to which of the comments
this belongs.  Suggest to move to
corresponding comment (formula,...)
where possible and delete otherwise.
