Subject: RE: S. Redhead's recent posts

SR:  Recent discussions have revealed how much discord there is even between
participants on this listserv. Virtually nobody refers to specific articles
in the draft PhyloCode.

Really?  I began a thread last year titled "Art. 10.1"?  In fact there have
been several threads that have dealt with specific articles or that have
proposed new articles or recommendations (check out the archives). True the
most recent posts have not, but it is incorrect to state that "virtually
nobody" has referred to specific articles. 

As for the discord, it is a listserv dealing with a controversial topic
where people hold a wide range of views on the topic. It isn't some love-in
where only one view only is espoused (that would be dull).
