Re: Feather origin hypothesis (for predator evasion??)

>>* Who started all this "HP" stuff, anyway?<<
I think it was an April Fool's emial.  Someone proposed we use a
non-gender/non-doctorate-implying honorific, since so many people were getting
Mr./Ms./Dr. mixed up.  HP (Honored Person), comrad, and -san were suggested, and
HP stuck.

At least that's what I remember.
