It would be nice if the original author could get credit for the tip.
So even if they didn't have an account in Drupal, it would be nice to at
least link their e-mail address or e-mail name as the author.  This
would likely mean adding new Drupal accounts dynamically and could cause
a mess....

The attrib_type (which should be the title) defaults to "Unclassified".
 Depending on the tip, I go in and set it to something.
