While it may well be true that some tangents need addressing, they
don't all need addressing here in public.  I've got other more
pressing matters to contend with so I haven't been castigating people
as much as I might if the flaming and drifting were occurring at
another time, and for those of you who think (as I do) that this list
should focus on dinosaur-related science I apologize for that.  For
everyone else, there's no shame in taking conversations off line.  If
you want to address a point not related to dinosaurs (e.g. opinions
about the screwed up nature of higher education) please respond via
private mail.

Thanks for your cooperation!
