Let's start ...

... with The Unknown.

... also, check out the comments on this post, which I linked to earlier. Wow, those Nature folks are like the English sparrows in my backyard.

    Henry works for Nature (the journal), as do I. Matt Brown, who comments in there somewhere, is London editor of Nature Network.

    But Nature Network is a free web platform to which anyone can sign up. It is overwhelmingly used by scientists who have nothing to do with Nature the company or the journal. (And are in very many cases, not English).

    In short, most of those people in that comment thread are independent scientists voicing their views. Henry is a little overwhelming with his, as is not uncommon for him on this particular subject. I am not commenting further as I doubt it would be possible to do so without further "flames".

  2. Well, Maxine, I hope that everyone has settled down. I thought the discussion quite lively.
