Links to Other Koi Sites
Beyond our mantra of “Current, Accurate and Useful,” we at KOI also attempt to bring our site users information that is thought provoking. However and as we don’t have the resources to vet the accuracy of everything that falls into this category, we will sometimes provide information for which the users will need to form their own opinions based on their own criteria.
