V. Orlovsky is defending his definition in A174397 (with negative numbers,
obviously) with a link to http://primes.utm.edu/notes/faq/negative_primes.html
arguing that primes can be negative numbers, so the mention of absolute
values in the definition is not needed. I cannot make friend with that idea.
Is there a general consensus (at least within the OEIS) that primes are >=2 ?
