I thought it was obvious that I meant it's a source of canon when it
presents Okrand's words. Sorry for not being clear enough. There are things
in HolQeD like interviews with Okrand in there which weren't written by
him, or things where someone relates something they heard from him. In
contrast, on Facebook or Twitter or Livejournal or Discord or whatever,
hearsay about what Okrand said doesn't count unless it's confirmed by
multiple people. (This mailing list is intermediate in that eyewitness
posts about events with a lot of KLI attendees, i.e., the qep'a' and
qepHom, are generally trusted.) For example, Okrand has contributed to
things at the Smithsonian or with the Washington Shakespeare company which
people wrote about online, but which weren't accepted until they were
corroborated by other multiple sources.
