Dear Sequence Fans and Editors
There are many examples in mathematics where a triangle can be written in two ways, as
(these are the Stirling numbers of the second kind, but there are a huge number
of similar examples):
either
1
0 1
0 1 1
0 1 3 1
0 1 7 6 1
...
or, omitting the 0-th column, as
1
1 1
1 3 1
1 7 6 1
...
Triangles are read by rows to become an OEIS entry.
These become different sequences:
Either 1 0 1 0 1 1 0 1 3 1 0 1 7 6 1 ...
or 1 1 1 1 3 1 1 7 6 1 ...
It is the OEIS policy to include BOTH versions, with cross-references between them.
Please do not start deleting any of these entries.
I am writing this because A137432 should not have been deleted. Especially
since I had recently edited it. DON'T DO THIS.
